The event industry has changed drastically over the last few months and although it has been a particularly challenging shift, we have seen marked improvements in efficiency and scale due to the new reliance on technology and the virtual space.
Flock is no stranger to developing and executing online events. Since 2013, we have been creating seamless Event Tech experiences in more than 36 countries and have covered a myriad of events from virtual conferences to online awards ceremonies. Flock aims to optimize user engagement for every type of event we manage — whether live, virtual or hybrid.
Flock’s newly updated mobile app promises to provide its users with seamless event management for both virtual and hybrid events with a centralized digital platform. Flock Events Platform’s management app ensures businesses maintain full and efficient control over every aspect of their events – from the planning stages to the execution and finally the event ROI reporting stage.
The Flock Mobile App
Our CEO and Founder, Mike Lysko, explains the decision behind the recent Flock update, “We have been doing consistent updates to version 1 of the Flock app and decided at the beginning of the year that we needed to bring in a completely new app design to make it even easier to use and navigate.”
Flock’s mobile app has over 20 integrated features that allow attendees to access all the information about an event, without the hassle of printed documents or missing out on important information. It’s an easy way to organize and digitize the way attendees RSVP and engage with the event’s materials. Everything they need — from programmes to dress codes — is right at their fingertips. Moving to mobile event management will organize and distribute event information quickly and effectively as well as increase engagement among event guests. Not only will they have immediate access to all important aspects of the event; they will also be able to engage directly with the event’s social media platforms and provide useful feedback and data that will help the event and company run more efficiently. Allowing you, the event manager, to manage the entire event from the palm of your hand, our event management platform makes sure all boxes are ticked from one easy-to-use space.
The Flock app equips you with everything you need to run a successful and seamless event. Using grid-view and quick responsive design, the app provides you with access to:
- Programmes with personalized scheduling.
- Event info including dress codes, times and important contact information.
- Speaker profiles and rating systems.
- Social feeds to which you can publish photos and videos from the event.
- Attendee lists with search functionality.
- Important event documents and speaker presentations.
- Lists of sponsors with links to websites and contact information.
- Floor plans and Maps.
- News Feed with an RSS feed link from your website.
- FAQs for general questions and enquiries.
- Push notifications for instant updates.
- Polls, Surveys, Live Stream and Q&A sessions.
- All digital media from the event.
Flock is very excited to release our new and improved mobile app with innovative, highly requested features and a brand-new user interface. Our updated messaging feature allows you to personally message and set up group chats with like-minded people at the event. Networking with other attendees becomes a breeze! Guests can set up personal profiles with their important work information allowing people to connect, grow and create new opportunities. Our aim is to make networking as safe, easy and enjoyable as possible by providing you with the choice of in-person or virtual communication. Just because many of us are working from home doesn’t mean we can’t build connections and network efficiently.
“Attendees will benefit from an improved and slicker looking User Interface (UI), we have refreshed the look, feel and flow of the app to be more intuitive and have a modern design,” explains Lysko.
Flock aims to be unique and business-focused in their approach.
“It is important to us that our customers and their attendees experience with our app is seamless and unforgettable for all the right reasons. We designed the app with this in mind, we wanted it to be really intuitive and easy to use, apps should be simple to navigate and not complex,” Lysko emphasizes.
