I love the Olympic Games. It is a chance to see how far individuals can push themselves, and how much more people can achieve when they work as a team. Just like in the Olympics, a lot of blood, sweat and tears have gone into our products and our success here at a2z. Each year we are challenged to push ourselves further, think outside the box, re-invent processes and work as a team with our partners and clients to achieve more.
This year we are seeing a huge demand for multiple technologies that can work together to create a better overall show experience. Show organizers today are using up to 4 or more different systems at one time to manage their events. The need to integrate these systems is becoming a high priority. Here is just a sampling of the variety of products and services that show organizers use to manage a show:
Software a2z Develops
Call for papers
Networking and matchmaking
ChirpE attendee acquisition widget
Website design & content management
Systems a2z Integrates With
Association Management Software (AMS)
Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
Accounting System Management Software
General Service Contractors
Registration Management Software
Working with a2z for almost five years has been a wonderful experience. I have watched our company, our people, and our products evolve over this period. We have been challenged to solve problems, streamline processes, simplify reporting, and create opportunities to generate revenue for our clients. What was once a basic floorplan management tool has now become a complete event management software system with all the bells and whistles any event manager can dream of. Internally, we have integrated the expo, conference, web, networking and mobile together, into one real-time event management system. Externally, we have built a comprehensive and effective integration portal that makes sharing information with our partners seamless with web services. If a technology company is going to grow, it is important to work as a team and unite with the partners.
Olympians push themselves to perform as individuals, and also to be strong team players. I am proud to say that a2z does both very well. Thank you to our staff for all you have done to give more to our clients each year, and thank you to our team of partners who also work hard and contribute to the growth of the event management technology industry. We appreciate your contributions and look forward to growing with you in the future.
Last but certainly not least, THANK YOU to our clients. You are our coaches, judges, critics and fans who push us to do more each year. Thank you for your support, feedback, friendship, and loyalty. We do what we do for you and because of you, and we strive to make you proud.
Let’s go TEAM!
