GrandezVous is a socially driven event management platform that enables organizations to simply and easily plan, execute and analyze events. The solution comprises both hardware (check-in kiosks) and software (web and mobile app), and can function across multiple digital devices, such as iPads, iPhones, Android phones, etc.
The platform’s app enables everyone involved (organizers, sponsors, speakers, attendees, etc.) to share real-time updates and photos both during and after an event. Using RFID technology, it also enables organizers to track attendees’ real-time data with modified name badges, bracelets, tickets or admissions identifiers. The information captured allows organizers to better plan events and improve attendee engagement.
On average, event planners spend 150 hours planning and executing a successful event. As well, organizations often experience difficulty finding one event planning company that can fulfill all its needs for before, during and after an event. Event planners are forced to either hire extra staff or engage multiple businesses to fulfill these needs, resulting in higher costs. GrandezVous solves all these problems by providing all the resources and tools that planners need in order to plan and execute a successful event.
