Why should I use Qrowdplot?

Using Qrowdplot is optional. You can still collect business cards or bring a sign-up sheet where people write in long-hand. But why would you?

Exhibitors: With Qrowdplot you can store accurate contact information, save time by skipping the data entry step, and download all your scans in a CSV spreadsheet compatible with Excel. It's easy, fast and already organized for you.

Attendees: With Qrowdplot you can exchange contact information quicker than ever before without having to spell out your email address or phone number. You will also have access to the event's app features like the Live Chat stream to stay connected with event goers and staff.

Staff: Qrowdplot comes with features and analytics for event planners right out of the box. Event staff has access to real-time event data to track how the event is flowing. You can graph which speakers launch the most conversations, find out how many people actually attended a given lecture or quickly see how many seats are left in a conference hall. Plus you'll be able to stay in touch with all event goers with the Live Chat and Reminders features.

What are the features for exhibitors?

Exhibitors only

You'll notice that after your first scan you will be logged in as an exhibitor and given access to the following features available only for Exhibitors:

  • Store your scans for download later - At any moment throughout the event you'll be able to download all your scans on a spreadsheet like Excel. It's already organized for you.
  • Send the person your contact information - When you scan a badge you immediately have that person's info, but sometimes it makes sense to send them your contact information as well. Qrowdplot allows you to do that right in the moment so the ball is always in your court.
  • See your most recent scans - In case you need to remember the name of the person you met a couple of scans ago.
  • Access the Event Live Chat Stream - Promote your product to all event goers directly by posting in the Event Live Chat Stream from your smartphone.
  • Logout - If you're sharing devices it would be a good idea to log out first so the person using your device does not gain access to your scans.
