New State-of-the-Art Service Using A Tablet to Check Guests Into Busy Events
CheckIn Tech, a New York based tech startup, has developed a state-of-the-art service using a tabletónot paperóto check guests into busy events. The guest check-in service is the brainchild of CheckIn Tech CEO Steve Feder, an event manager who came up with the concept while working on his MBA capstone project at The Zicklin School of Business. According to Mr. Feder, "I was waiting in line to check in at a friend's fundraiser at the Hilton. I noticed how excessively long it took to check in. Everyone waiting in line was getting frustrated with the process. As someone who had planned a variety of events in the political, entertainment, non-profit and corporate industries, I recognized that there must be a practical way to significantly improve the entire guest check-in process and eliminate the sense of frustration guests usually experience."

CheckIn's clients now range from small non-profits to large corporations all of whom enjoy the benefits of the CheckIn Tech service, which include shorter lines, the ability to make last minute changes to their guest lists, a clear idea of who did and who did not attend their event, and a built in defense mechanism against gate-crashers. CheckIn Tech's IPad Guest Registration Services have been used for events as versatile as galas, fundraisers, cocktail receptions, concerts, red carpet functions, corporate outings, upfronts, and movie premieres, to name a few.
CheckIn Tech charges a flat rate providing pricing packages rather than a per name fee. Each package includes an onsite manager for two hours so that clients can focus on their event while CheckIn Tech ensures all of the guests are properly checked in. CheckIn Tech's system is typically ten times faster than traditional, paper guest lists. This speed has almost guaranteed no lines at events where CheckIn Tech is present. Mr. Feder commented on the system's speed and efficiency, "CheckIn Tech recently processed 572 people in 21 minutes at the Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children's Center dedication ceremony at John Hopkins University. Our client had no lines within minutes of opening the doors for the event." Since its launch at the beginning of this year, CheckIn Tech has worked close to 100 events in 10 states and 4 countries and checked in over 50,000 guests.
