Thorn Technologies assists Experient in revamp of Engage

Experient launched its Engage event mobile application, the mobile front-end to their event and trade show management platform EventXL, for Android and iOS. Thorn Technologies helped by integrating with Experient’s software development team to resolve critical issues and enhance the application on both the Android and iOS platforms.

The Engage mobile application is a single platform that provides users with access to multiple events and trade shows Engage front pagedownloaded from within the app. Engage is part of Experient’s deep ecosystem of applications, which includes EventXL, SWAP, and EDGE. This allows for a seamless attendee and exhibitor experience from registration to onsite at the event and beyond, giving the Experient a huge advantage over its competitors.

The Engage app is resilient in environments with poor wireless connectivity and provides important features such as:

  • Personal profile and agenda
  • Registration and housing
  • Event schedule
  • Exhibitor, attendee, and speaker profiles
  • Session and exhibitor handouts
  • Sponsorship opportunities
  • Social media integration with Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Yelp
  • Push notifications
  • Interactive maps
  • Location-based services
  • QR code scanning integration

Thorn Technologies helped vastly improve the apps in a very short timeframe by fully integrating software engineers into Experient’s software development team and process.
