Intelsat Selects a2z Inc.'s Event Management Software for
Global Telecommunications Meeting 2002
Software Cuts Event Management Time by 50%
(Columbia, MD)— Intelsat, a leading satellite communications firm, has selected the web-based event software of a2z Inc. to help it manage and market its annual Global Telecommunications Meeting (GTM) where its customers and partners can network, make commercial arrangements, and discuss everything from next generation technology to the impact of the world economy on telecommunications services.
Designed specifically for events, a2z's software helps to automate and accelerate many of the time-consuming and redundant tasks that both attendees and event planners have had to do manually in the past. At the GTM 2002 website, for example, Intelsat event planners are using a2z's software to manage the exhibit hall, display-tables, and meeting rooms at the conference in less than half the time it used to take them. They can assign tables, meeting rooms, and exhibit space online, as well as merge and split booth space on the fly, without having to play phone tag or having to send time-consuming faxes.
Attendees also benefit from the online program, as they have the ability to network online and set appointments before the meeting. All changes are reflected in real-time on the GTM website so there are no delays in communications, thereby improving overall customer service and satisfaction.
