Unlike most existing event management and ticketing solutions, GruupMeet’s booking product is designed to help fast-paced teams execute more productive and customized experiences in a few clicks. With GruupMeet, HTML and editors are no longer required. The tool automatically resizes, formats, and displays content so there are no event registration themes to create, build, or rebuild.
GruupMeet’s Co-Founder and CEO, Russell Wyman, says, “There are a ton of moving pieces involved in executing in-person and virtual events, many existing solutions that may or may not be a fit for every specific event, and many other important considerations.” Besides being created and designed from industry experience, GruupMeet has focused on collaborating closely with customers so that clients help drive product innovation. In today’s busy mobile business environment where “meeting participants are armed with mobile apps and real-time information across a multitude of sources and devices,” GruupMeet’s loyal clientele base has continued to experience success leveraging GruupMeet’s “super-simplified” and “beautifully designed” software.
Russell Wyman says, “We created GruupMeet to help simplify tedious processes related to managing meetings, and we wanted to ensure that our super-simplified approach based on client feedback and experience helped drive our approach to virtual solutions.” While the competitive range and options for event management technologies have increased since GruupMeet was founded in 2014, the GruupMeet team continues to believe flexibility and ease of use for everyone are important. GruupMeet has learned from working closely with customers about the challenges for leveraging and deploying event technologies, including the number of providers or solutions that are typically used to execute meetings.
Besides the new features and video integration with the booking tool, GruupMeet’s virtual events solution seeks to provide professional, secure, and powerful features to enhance a corporation’s online events. From the start, the mission of GruupMeet has been to streamline the critical logistics and events communications that impact the overall experience. Thus, features include GruupMeet’s automated email notifications and 2-way text messaging. Unlike “push notifications” that require guests to install or download an app, or to learn how to use a new interface, GruupMeet brings the entire team together on one platform – allowing enterprises to collaborate and work together no matter where team members are located, or what device they are using. Likewise, the GruupMeet solution is not intended to replace existing live conferencing or video streaming tools. Instead, organizers will be able to manage and enhance all their online event experiences with the GruupMeet system while leveraging existing tools with built-in API integrations. Live streaming and video integrations currently include YouTube and Vimeo’s products.
The GruupMeet team believes the best event experiences often come from leveraging solutions guests already use. Russell Wyman, CEO, says, “Today’s event participants seek “instant” solutions that save them time and eliminate distractions. Attendees may only use event apps when the typical way they already work fails them.”
GruupMeet’s white-labeled platform includes hosting and support services to ensure SSL certificates are encrypted and verified. Built-in security and data protection features are also included with GruupMeet. To help the manual processes associated with attendee badges; and to make managing sign-on details and passwords easier for guests, updates also include GruupMeet’s Virtual Badge and Secure Sign-on “beta” iOS wallet pass product.
As companies begin to resume business travel, GruupMeet suggests, “Successful meeting experiences will hinge on effectively implementing event technology solutions that seamlessly fit into the mix by providing convenience, flexibility, privacy, and security for both organizers AND attendees.”
