AstraZeneca sells conference technology to Core-apps

Event management technology company Core-apps has acquired a new conference app from pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca.

The agreement includes the acquisition of AstraZeneca's Conference Notes iPad app, including the associated technology.

Under the agreement, Core-apps will expand Conference Notes for use with all Android and iOS devices. Core-apps also plans to leverage its sales and technical teams to bring Conference Notes to a broader customer base. AstraZeneca will still be able to offer the app to medical associations and at internal meetings.

Core-apps CEO Jay Tokosch said: "We understand that taking notes and engaging with conference content is difficult during a presentation. Attendees are limited by the sessions they can join and most notes end up in notebooks never to be seen again. Conference Notes helps solve this problem."

He added that the company’s expertise would make this tool more accessible, both within the medical industry and to markets such as life sciences and higher education.
