Swiss startup entrepreneurs David Becker and Daniel Dessauges are placing their own stamp on the event marketing industry with Zkipster. Designed specifically for PR leaders and event planners, Zkipster creates a cloud based check-in portal for guest list management.
The iOS enabled software makes welcoming guests easier and more efficient, while having already been used by the likes of AOL, Hugo Boss, NY Fashion Week, HBO and a host of other well-known outlets. Working out of New York in a co-working space via Vitra, the Swiss startup-guys are helping guest list organizers move away from paper and go mobile. While Canadian company EventMobi have been helping the industry for some time, Zkipster is making great waves with their slick and easy to use interface.
Zkipster lets users store all their guest data in the cloud but unlike the other’s it is not focused on ticket sales. By focusing on an ease-of-use approach the software keeps teams on multiple devices alert on total check-ins, VIP’s, and provides the opportunity to add new guests in real-time – which is bound to happen at an event.
After an event the system can export data such as times guests arrived and metrics to help curate an even more successful event next time. Pricing to use the app can be acquired by event for $75, $165 per month annually, or $740 during a four-month billing cycle.
