CommSoft, a software company in Northeast NY, utilized the Eventzee program for a Scavenger Hunt as part of their yearly Users’ Conference. CommSoft has users from all over the country and once a year they host a 3 day conference filled with classes, networking and extracurricular events. One such evening event was an Eventzee Scavenger Hunt in Boulder, Colorado which included the establishments on and near the Pearl Street Marketplace. They had 14 teams comprised of CommSoft personnel and conference attendees as well as a “command center” back at the conference hotel where they approved photos and had the leaderboard posted.
“Having the Eventzee software for both our participants and for me as the admin back at the command center was essential to the success of this event. Both the app and admin portal were easy to configure and utilize. I only had limited time to get my CommSoft personnel up to speed on using the app due to our scheduling (approximately an hour…) and they picked it up immediately. The folks who stayed back at the command center loved watching the pictures coming in and tracking the action via the leaderboard.
We ran a scavenger hunt at a previous conference but did it all “by hand”. We handed out paper lists of the hunt items and had the teams text the photos to one person at the command center as they went along. The pictures arrived in a crazy frenzy and we had no good way to go through them and segment them by team etc. In the end we were really unable to track it all..it was a mess. Using Eventzee was like night and day from our previous experience. It made it so easy to track that I actually had time to enjoy the photos as they were coming in rather than just trying to track them. And it made it so much easier to tally the results as it was all within the system itself. No need to keep track of points manually. Finally, it gave us more of a “high tech” look than handing out a bunch of papers and pens. We are a software company too after all. The Eventzee team was so easy to work with from start to finish and even including the evening of our event. They were there for us if we needed them (though we didn’t) which was a great comfort.”
