New App Enables First Ever Full Suite of Collaborative Experiences for Attendees Using Mobile Devices
CHICAGO, Dec. 20, 2011 -- INXPO announces a radical change in the way people can access online events on its award-winning VX Platform. Mobile device attendees will no longer have to settle for a limited subset of functionality, or feel as though they are unable to be full event participants. The new app, available for both iOS and Android users, features the full suite of INXPO benefits for users on the go, including:
- The most complete mobile webcast viewing solution, XPOCAST® Mobile™ (see below)
- A theater for live and on-demand presentations
- Multiple venues for downloadable content
- Chat Rooms
- Private One to One chat
- Social Media integration
"Our statistics tell us that online event attendance from mobile devices is growing quickly. Our mobile support expansion is driven by a clear shift in where computing now happens," said Malcolm Lotzof, CEO, INXPO. "Our mobile app follows our guiding principles of Power and Simplicity. We've extended the most powerful digital events platform in the industry, while making it simpler for end users to attend from anywhere," continued Lotzof.
With the INXPO Mobile app INXPO now offers clients the following options: •The INXPO "Universal App" (non-branded and free with every INXPO event) •A privately branded client app (a single app for clients with multiple events) •A privately branded event app (a single app for a single event) All of the above apps are unique in that they are completely integrated with INXPO's VX Platform, extending access to INXPO events to anyone with a iOS or Android mobile device.
"Frankly, we were not willing to settle for an app that simply gave mobile users access to an event's documents," said Drew VanVooren, President, INXPO. "What we're now providing is a powerfully interactive experience for attendees, regardless of what type of device they accessed an event from."
The power of an online event is its ability to extend the event's reach to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Mobile access promised to increase that access to even more users using a variety of devices, but solutions available up to now have been very limited. The INXPO mobile app changes all of that.
"As computing shifts to mobile devices, I expect the INXPO mobile suite to benefit attendance rates at our clients' events. With this complete user experience made available to mobile users, being out of the office is no longer a barrier for attendance," said Lotzof.
With XPOCAST® Mobile™, INXPO now has the most feature-rich and flexible mobile webcasting solution in the world. Users have complete control over:
- Screen sharing
- Live, Simulive and On-Demand presentations
- Interactive polling and surveys
- Group chat
- Moderated chat
- Twitter integration
