SUNNYVALE, California, December 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Jifflenow to Integrate with ITN's BCARD Platform
Jifflenow, a leading provider of secure, cloud-based enterprise meeting scheduling solutions for business-to-business (B2B) events, today announced a partnership with ITN International, the world leader in mobile near-field communication (NFC), Bluetooth low energy (BLE), and cloud-based event solutions.
Jifflenow will integrate its meeting scheduling software with ITN's BCARD Platform and roll out its meeting scheduling software to exhibitors at the trade shows and events that ITN serves, such as the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and Mobile World Congress.
Near-field communication (NFC) is the short-range wireless technology behind "touch-based" lead retrieval, access control, session scanning and other fundamental applications used at large tradeshows, conferences and corporate events. By integrating this technology with meeting scheduling, Jifflenow customers will be able to speed up check-ins of meeting attendees, and provide a consistent set of technology for event managers and booth staff to use at all tradeshows and events.
"Our customers make significant investments to exhibit at tradeshows and rely on two key metrics to measure the value of that investment: leads scanned and the value of meetings held. By being able to have a consistent, high quality set of meeting scheduling and lead scanning technologies to travel with from show to show all over the world, they can reduce setup time, limit chaos in the booth, session and meeting areas, and realize a greater return on investment," explained Hari Shetty, CEO of Jifflenow. "We are excited to be partnering with ITN and responding to the market demand for top-notch badge scanning technology with our product."
Ivan Lazarev, President and CEO of ITN, expressed his aim for the partnership, "Jifflenow provides a new and unique tool for exhibitors at B2B tradeshows that perfectly complements our badge scanning technology and BCARD Platform. You can think of ITN as a full-service data management provider for events. By partnering with Jifflenow we introduce a new category of event technology to exhibitors and enable them to not only gather new leads, but deepen relationships with existing customers and prospects by meeting with them face-to-face at live events. This will interest our customers who use our lead retrieval products and services, as well as the broad range of exhibitors at shows we service such as International CES and Mobile World Congress who hold meetings at these shows with customers, prospects, press and analysts."
Jifflenow is sold as a software-as-a-service and is available directly from Jifflenow. BCARD Platform is a subscription-based solution that is available directly from ITN.
