We have used it for the last five years and will use it for this coming year. The Core-Apps team is second to none. They have come through for us even when we had a near disaster last year when our content provider could not provide Core-Apps with our event data electronically. This meant that the technical team at Core-apps had to juggle personal commitments with our schedule to get us live in time for the event kick off. So although this review is supposed to be about the app, it is the support behind the app that matters. The app itself is rock-solid and there is not much to say about it except it works (well).

Pros
Ease of use. The end users at our conference rarely come to us at the event to ask us how to use the app. For me that is simple proof of its intuitiveness.

Cons
I work on getting the content to the app. Typically we have a third party that provides the information and when the integration between the two systems works it works very well. Last year though we had an issue that was not Core-Apps problem but both Core-Apps and I had to struggle to manipulate the data manually. Not fun! In fact somewhat of a near disaster though, again, this was not due to Core-Apps. So what I like least about the software is that there is no work-around to manipulating data. Working from spreadsheets is ok prior to going live. Editing information in many spots is laborious and can be mind boggling.

Response from Core-apps


Thank you for the kind words! The data manipulation issues are real, we have over the last couple months created some ability to make your life easier next go around. Make sure you talk to your project manager for details.

Able to solve complex event structure issues while delivery exemplary customer service to our event organizer clients. Always feel that Core-apps has our backs and that any challenge can be mastered - or at least, dealt with.

Pros
Very stable, very configurable. Handles complex integrations well and allows for inevitable inconsistencies in source data.

Cons
Could improve metrics portal, but we understand that desired metrics are a moving target... Admin areas could also use some improvement.

Response from Core-apps


Thank you for the feedback Steve! It is always great to hear about positive experiences with our technology. We continue to improve our features and functionality and appreciate that you recognize our ability to solve complex problems.

Pros
Easy way to navigate a conference, and becoming the environmentally friendly choice

Cons
Too many reminders/notifications, time slots and actual session times differed, not enough customization

Response from Core-apps


Sorry to hear there was not enough customization and the session times were off. We strive for continuous improvement and client communication is an important part of that process.

Core-apps for Trade Association

Used occasionally for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

We stopped printing an on-site guide now that we use a mobile event app. There was very little grumbling from the attendees with this switch. We also needed to provide technology that attendees are used to when attending other conferences. We have a small team and rely heavily on the Core-apps team to be the technology arm for our conference.

Pros
This app is easy for attendees to use. The functions seems intuitive for my members as I rarely received questions on how/where to navigate. So far as I know, the app performed as it should for each of the conferences we used it for. On the operations/logistics side: the Core-apps teams makes setting things up absolutely a breeze. They are fun to work with while being efficient and helpful. I can't recommended them enough.

Cons
I feel we get good value for what we pay for yet I have wondered why apps are as expensive as they are. I realize everyone need/wants to make money. It would be lovely if the pricing would be bit less. For a small trade association, it's a big price tag.

Response from Core-apps


Sounds like we need to get you a sponsor through our Amplify offering!

Great customer service

Used occasionally for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2018-12-07
Review Source: Capterra

Overall we appreciated the great customer service and high functionality of the app.

Pros
Though more expensive than the other bids we got for our academic conference, this app has the benefit of an API that pulls the information directly from our All Academic database. This meant that changes to the core system, therefore, are automatically populated in the app, saving us significant staff time. Speaker, schedule, and room updates are generated automatically in the app. The app included the full text of abstracts, lists of authors, and allowed the user to search and sort presentations by theme and type. It also featured My Schedule and My Favorites functions, which allowed participants to plan which sessions to attend in advance.

Cons
Searching for names on the app was not truly global. Some of our speakers found that their events did not all show in the search results. If we wanted their names to be searchable with the global search functionality feature we can support it here but it would slow down the app.

Response from Core-apps


Over the past year we have worked to speed up search and provide greater coverage for speakers that are in the author blocks.

Benefits

Creating an on-brand theme is easy with Core-apps. You can either send us your images and preference of colors and we set up your theme, or you can use the DIY dashboard. With Core-apps your event app is truly YOUR app!

Data Integration:
Our services include seamless integration with the event industry’s top CRMs and databases. We specialize in taking your complex data and make it simple to display and have more experience than any other provider in the industry at handling posters and abstracts.

Quick List:

Interactive Maps:
Our interactive maps are the best to date in the trade show and conference industry! Our maps be themed and customized, they also can be updated on the fly. Attendees can get best path routing from booth to booth, even if the booth they’re trying to get to is in another building. They can even get routing to and from session rooms.

Social Networking:
Attendees love networking with other attendees. We help facilitate that with our self-published attendee list. Privacy is a major concern, so attendees opt-in and if they don’t, their information isn’t accessible to anyone else using the app.

My Schedule:
Managing what sessions or meetings you have on your agenda shouldn’t be hard, and we make it as easy as it can get. We can allow users to import their agenda from many online providers, or they can build it quickly and easily inside of the app.

Beacon Solutions:
We offer alerting and event analytics including real-time traffic measurements using cutting-edge technology. From the exhibit hall to education session rooms, our analytics provide reporting with heat maps, graphs, and charts.

Targeted Alerts:
Not only does our app provide an alerting system to keep your attendees informed, we also allow targeting alerts to demographics from their profiles. If you want to send an alert to only exhibitors or buyers, you can! We also provide alerts as attendees approach an area on the show floor using iBeacons!

Live Polling:
Speakers are able to interact with users of your app via our comprehensive Audience Response System. Speakers can poll attendees for feedback or to quiz them to ensure what they’re explaining was understood. They can also accept questions from audience members, all from within the app, it's one of the most comprehensive solutions in the marketplace!

Session Check-In:
We offer an easy to use system that allows users to confirm their attendance to a session and automate the collection of their information, to issue credits to the attendees.

Gamification:
We love providing fun ways to engage attendees and create a healthy competition that incentivizes your attendees! Let's create a customized game for your show!

Sponsorships:
We have an extensive list of ways that the app can be sponsored to help offset the cost of the mobile app. Many of our customers grow their revenue through selling sponsorships for their app.
