Make Your iPad a Guest List Manager with zkipster
One of the most unanticipated uses of the iPad is guests check-in at events. Let me introduce you to zkipster a powerful iPad guest list app.
I am quite sure Apple did not think about the iPad as a guest list management device for events. Nonetheless guest list management apps are flourishing.
Just today Eventbrite (disclaimer: they sponsor this blog – although the following link is my initiative) announced a revolutionary iPad powered credit card payment system for tickets.
The iPad is becoming an invaluable tool for meeting and event planners and I wanted to introduce you to a new startup with quite an impressive portfolio, zkipster.
Essentially the app is similar to those we have covered in the past but has some nice little features such as unlimited devices synch via a wise use of the cloud.
I had the pleasure to have a chat with David asking him how zkipster was different, this is what he had to say:
“We figured we should listen to the needs of people running the guest lists on a daily basis. Coming from nightlife where chaos at the door is part of the game we understood that in professional event management fast, organized check-in is key. Unlike other apps, zkipster offers guest list overview and guest details on one screen. An average search query, including check-in, takes three seconds. We also found an elegant way to integrate No RSVP’s into the guest list while keeping the stats accurate.“
David also showed me a nice video about the app, which pretty much sums up all the main features:
Well because of the reasons I mentioned above but also because of an impressive portfolio that includes AOL, the Office of the Mayor of New York City (as learned from their FB page) and Hugo Boss USA.
I also liked their pricing structure which starts at a very accessible $50 per event with very cool features such as seating maps and reports.
I believe zkipster is worth your time and I invite you to play around with it and download their free offline demo version. I think it is worth to give it a shot.
