“When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight”, it wasn’t.
FedEx almost always comes through for us, but nobody is perfect. Our client’s event was in Hawaii. This was their first experience using Bartizan’s session tracking app, iSessions. The conference was about to begin, but the Apple iPod touch mobile devices that would be running iSessions had not been delivered.
A disaster? Hardly. Several conference staffers simply downloaded iSessions to their iPhones and proceeded to scan in session attendees (the iPods arrived later in the day). Had dedicated scanning devices been required, the delayed delivery would have been a major problem, but with iSessions…no problem.
There are a number of good reasons to use iSessions, but this highlights one of the best.
