5 Great Uses for Badges

Name badges are more than a “Hello” sticker with a name written in magic marker.

Here are five great uses for RegOnline badges:

1) Add a bar code or QR code to your badges.

A bar code is useful for onsite check-in.  It is also helpful for both event organizers and attendees to scan bar codes in order to exchange virtual business cards.

A QR code is an excellent tool for attendees to learn more about an event. It stores additional information without taking up space, and can be scanned easily from any smartphone through downloadable apps such as Red Laser (iphone) and QRDroid (Android). You can configure a QR code through the RegOnline badge tool.

2) Unique Indentifier

Use a badge as a unique identifier for attendees ! Incorporate attendee ID numbers on a badge for VIP or regular sessions, auctions and more.

3) Badges are a Time Saver

In recent releases, we made enhancements to our badge printing process. Now badges print faster, allowing an event organizer to spend less time printing and more time on other important things.

4) Badges Can be More

Use the custom fields enabled for badges to create certificates, or use the same information as a ticket to get into an event.

5) Lead Retrieval

RegOnline, through a partnership with Swiftium, provides scanning services for lead retrieval. If organizing a large event with exhibitors, provide them the option of renting a Blackberry scanning device to get attendee information. The scanned info is stored in a secure database and is accessible after the event. This service is perfect for getting quality leads from an event. *
