Alerting & Customized Apps
- Alerts can be set up to notify event planners when their internet connection is reaching the maximum number of users or bandwidth.
- The Diplomat Beach Resort uses Kipsu to direct message its guests. The resort’s front office team can communicate with their group attendees via text message to include details such as reminders for their gala location, check-in or check-out time and more!
- Many groups are also developing their own apps for their conventions, which can include anything from featuring full program agendas to image sharing and live polling as a way to further increase engagement during their events.
Internet Status Website
- A custom website can be set up for event planners to see the status of the internet configuration for their event.
