Event Marketing Industry Embraces eshotsâ New Android-Based Lead Capture Device
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 4, 2010
The event marketing industryâs leading single-source provider of technology solutions, eshots, inc., is showcasing the second version of its handheld lead capture device at this weekâs Event Marketing Summit. QuickCapture has been rapidly adopted as the event marketing industryâs lead capture device of choice due, in part, to eshotsâ decision to build it on Googleâs Android platform.
Craig Steensma, eshots president, said, âWhen we set out to build the industryâs best handheld lead capture solution, we first looked at Appleâs mobile products. We found that, while Apple’s devices are fun and slick, they lack key features fundamental to capturing data at events. The hardware offers neither interchangeable batteries nor standard ports. The application development and deployment processes lack flexibility. The onscreen touch keyboard makes it difficult to enter accurate information efficiently. These problems vanished when we turned to Googleâs Android platform.â
QuickCapture makes it simple for brand representatives to collect information from consumers. Interchangeable batteries mean events can be managed with less units and less interruptions. The flexible operational design combines a touch screen, an external physical keyboard and a barcode scanner, which all work together to facilitate fast new-user training and easy, accurate data entry. Lastly, the Android platformâs ability to run background processes allows for efficient and seamless consumer interactions.
QuickCaptureâs integrated reference application, which puts vital product details at the fingertips of brand representatives, is one example of Android’s multitasking ability. Chrysler Brand Event Shows Manager Bo Puffer said, âOur product specialists love QuickCapture. The availability of all vehicle product and trim information at the tap of a button, while the lead capture app is running at the same time makes their job easier than ever.â
QuickCapture will be demonstrated at the eshots booth during the Event Marketing Summit taking place at the Hyatt Regency Chicago May 3-5, 2010.
