DataKeys monitor 25 unique attendee interactions over the course of an event’s full life cycle. This digital trail is rich in detailed data including sessions attended, exhibitors visited, check-in’s at sponsor events, social shares, and 1-to-1 interactions. The purchase of DataKeys is conducted in the mobile event app. The DataKeys can then be leveraged immediately in a booth or stand on the event floor for onsite meeting/session note taking, lead qualification and real-time prospect commentary. Leads can also be directly exported into CRM, SFA and marketing automation applications for immediate use in sales activity and campaigns.
