The tool, Lumi Track, offers event organisers the ability to check-in attendees, monitor their attendance and generate reports in real-time that offer insights into attendee behaviour.
Using radio frequency identification (RFID) and near field communication (NFC), Lumi Track speeds up the registration process for delegates with instant attendee authentication, tracking and reports. Attendees are checked-in and out of events using an NFC-enabled mobile phone or tablet. If the wi-fi connection drops at an event, attendee data is saved on the device and uploaded immediately once the connection is restored, ensuring no data is lost.
An online dashboard with live attendance details can be accessed from any device with an internet connection, making it easy for organisers to see when a room is nearing capacity. In addition to real-time analytics, Lumi Track provides organisers with in-depth reports that can be exported to Microsoft Excel.
Richard Taylor, chief executive of Lumi, said: "There was unfulfilled demand in the marketplace for this solution, as event organisers found it difficult, if not impossible, to efficiently track, monitor and report attendance. Lumi Track answers these needs and returns control of events to organisers through a live, interactive and simple platform."
He added that the tool is an evolving platform that will continue to improve as current functionality is optimised and new features are added, bringing event organisers even more insight into their audiences.
Lumi Track works with multiple meeting and event formats, including AGMs, pharmaceutical and medical meetings, all of which are legally required to monitor and record attendance.
