Catalina Island, consistently ranked one of the best island getaways by various media outlets, has always been a tourist destination. But in the past few years, the island's new additions of meeting facilities and other accommodations have transformed the island from a popular vacation spot to a desirable meeting destination.
A new feature was recently announced by Certain Inc., the leader in enterprise event management software, that makes the lives of meetings professionals a bit easier. Sign and Go, the new feature of Check In Easy, allows event managers to gather signatures and verify guest attendance.
“Check In Easy first revolutionized event registration, reducing registration lines and eliminating the need for paper with an easy-to-use check-in mobile app,” said Peter Micciche, CEO of Certain. “Now with Sign and Go, this value proposition has been extended to offer digital signature collection, creating the perfect solution for event managers who require guest signatures, whether for attendance verification, compliance requirements or gift pick-up. Check In Easy with new Sign and Go creates the seamless and polished first impression that is so important for events today.”
This digital feature replaces the clutter and disorganization of paper sign-in sheets at events. After the event, the check-in information can be exported in an alphabetized Excel file of all guest names, signatures, information, and registration times.
“Our team manages several continuing education conferences each year that require proof of attendance through signatures at registration,” said Lorraine Mariella of Celebrations Events and Meeting Management, LLC. “Our clients love the paperless, buttoned-up look of Check In Easy’s Sign and Go feature, and we heard countless attendees commenting on the ease of signing in.”
Check In Easy is also expanding the feature to include a survey function, which seamlessly connects demographic and attendee data at the start of an event. This means the registration team can gather information like how guests heard about the event, their industry involvement and more.
