Showcare Event Solutions and Quickmobile Establish Partnership
Showcare Event Solutions, a company in the event registration and housing industry space, has teamed up with QuickMobile, a company with enterprise mobile event applications.
Both Showcare and QuickMobile see the relationship as a good strategic and cultural fit, according to company officials.
“Since their first application launch in 2008, no other event application provider has released more apps than QuickMobile,” says Robert Kozub, president at Showcare.
He added, “They are constantly improving their product and have also been very accommodating. We explored developing our own application, but felt it was a more sound and strategic decision to partner with a strong mobile app developer with an established track record.”
With more than 30 available features that can be tailored to client events, QuickMobile applications allow attendees to interact through social media feeds, connect with other attendees using powerful networking features and engage in live session activities, such as audience response system (ARS) polls and interactive Q&A’s with a session speaker or moderator.
With all this, attendees will be more than covered for their events. Applications are 100 percent native and available on iOS, Android and mobile web for all other operating systems.
“As the only true enterprise mobile event app platform, we want to focus on our strengths and partner with companies like Showcare who are the frontrunners in their market,” said Scott Lockey, managing director of Strategic Partnerships at QuickMobile.
He added, “With Showcare's history of providing white glove service to their clients, combining both our organizations technologies is a win-win situation for their clients.”
The synergistic partnership allows for both organizations to increase their market reach and compete with larger organizations.
For Showcare, it presents an expanded product offering while providing more value to its customer base. It concurrently gives QuickMobile access to Showcare’s niche customer base for flexible event solutions.
“QuickMobile and Showcare have a wealth of experience and there are endless possibilities. The opportunity to grow alongside a company like QuickMobile is a great one,” Kozub said.
He added, “They are flexible in accommodating our clients’ needs and are extremely resourceful. Likewise, we are looking to help grow them alongside our business and endeavors in the association event space.”
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
