CTS unveils remote registration system

CTS has unveiled its standalone EZ Badge Online registration product which does away with any requirement to use the company’s hardware or staff on-site. The system is a remote access software solution that organisers can take with them to events on their laptops, which then links via a local internet connection to CTS’ secure servers from anywhere worldwide, giving real-time access to pre-reg data.

On the ground, organiser’s own staff and/or locally sourced assistants gain direct access to the data recording and badge printing software allowing them to manage the event registration process on the day. New, on-site registration data is automatically transferred and integrated into the secure database maintaining a sole unique master list.

IIR Exhibition’s TOC Americas held in Panama trialled the system in November 2007. The Terminal Operations Conference and Exhibition showcased over 60 international port and terminal service providers, suppliers and operators and attracted more than 600 participants.

TOC Events Worldwide, senior marketing manager, Louise O'Mahony, said: “As a satellite show, EZ Badge Online was the ideal solution for TOC Americas. It gave us the security, pre-event, of CTS’ regular registration system with the ability to tap into it from half-way round the world, without the cost of shipping masses of equipment and flying specialist staff over to cover the event. The system worked effectively and following recommendations from our feedback, we are set to use an updated version at TOC Asia later in the year.”

CTS, managing director, David Edwards added: “EZ Badge Online was developed as a result of organiser feedback. An older system relied on clients taking a lot of heavy kit with them, but EZ Badge Online does away with all of that. It is really easy to use and hugely cost effective, with back-up systems too just in case the organiser’s on-site internet connection goes down. It’s an ideal solution for smaller events and those being held in more remote, possibly less well served markets.”
