How would you like to identify your conference delegates via a quick swipe of a card over a handset?
No need to slot the card in and remember to take it out afterwards, this uses the same technology as Transport for London's Oyster Card, allowing quick and easy access to a Messenger handset.
The use of these with our audience response systems increases the power and potential of your events, opening up whole new ways to interact with your audiences.
If you already know a lot about the people making up your audience, then you may not need to ask the demographic questions before you start. In this case, you can just ask the audience to enter a PIN into their handset to identify themselves and the system will assign all the correct demographics for you. This system also allows users to pick up a different handset (say, after lunch), type in their PIN and continue. This facility ensures a clear audit trail is maintained in those situations that require it.
From Silent Auctions to Shareholder AGMs, there is now an instant and flexible way to ensure correct and secure usage of the handset.
The RFID cards can be used as 'Smart Badges' as part of our Attendance Management System. Find out more here.
When using Group Dynamics' Classic Audience Response System, PIN numbers are a useful way of allowing delegates to log into a handset.
Much more than just a voting system, the Messenger can display logos or information during a session. These can be changed as often as necessary throughout the course of the day, and we can even create them for you there and then.
Presenters can even use them to show key points for every single slide in their presentation if they want to!
The RFID cards compatible with the Messenger Audience Response System can be printed with any logo and can even be used as your delegates' ID badges for the event.
Our powerful and flexible software package, PowerQ, allows us to use a whole range of great countdown movies in our interactive presentations. Whether our clients would like standard countdowns or themed ones, most of the time we can supply these as part of the package. On those occasions where our clients require something specific (for example containing their company or product logo) we can, of course, make custom movies to the same high quality as our library ones. Contact us for more information.
This is the ideal tool to examine candidates using a multiple choice paper, but a handset is used instead of a pen.
Candidates just use the LCD on their handset to work their way around. People can answer simple multiple choice questions, select pictures, or answer mathematical or currency questions.
Once the time allocated is over, the handsets will not allow further responses. All data is downloaded for marking and grading. The Module is quick to set up, data is secure (it can be password encrypted) and marking for 100 Students would only take about 30 seconds.
The Research Module allows you to survey a large number of people over a short period of time. Like the Assessment Module, the handsets do not have to stay within range of the base station. So, you could go out into the street and survey passers-by. People can either be asked questions - or they can read them - and their responses are entered into the handset by pressing the appropriate numbered key or keys. Once again, there's no manual marking to be done and the handset's LCD is used to navigate around the questions.
Questions can be answered in any order and answers can be changed if someone changes their mind. Also, each response can be weighted or qualified according to your requirements.
Once the responses have been collected, they can be downloaded immediately, as long as you are back in range of the base station. The system sends the data automatically to a spreadsheet so continuous analysis can take place.
The Opinion Monitor was created to see how an audience reacts to a presentation in real time. It can be of great interest to monitor audience responses while a presentation is actually going on.
Each member of the audience is given a handset. Then they are asked to vote on an opening question, usually some sort of demographic (age, gender, department etc), in order to see how the audience breaks down into different groups. Once the audience has identified themselves with a particular group in this way, they use the handsets as the presentation progresses to express any change in their opinion.
A live line graph is generated, with each group shown in a different colour, to demonstrate how people are reacting. Voting is constant and people can press a key at any time to express a change in opinion.
