A glimpse of what ShowBiz can do for YOUR show …
Below are just a few of the benefits you can gain from running your show on ShowBiz …
ShowBiz allows you sell online entries, online tradestands, online tickets, online memberships and online sponsorships. Online directories, online results and social media integration help you recruit, reward and retain new exhibitors, standholders, visitors, members and sponsors. And it’s all maintained and managed in your own integrated, powerful contact management system.
ShowBiz provides numerous ways to help you and your users make the best use of your time. Multiple processes run at the same time on multiple tabs; global search quickly finds things anywhere in the system, judges and officials can manage their commitments online. Send emails, messages and letters to some or all of your contacts at the click of a button.
Your customers increasingly want to buy everything on a mobile device. By capturing your schedule, entries and every other show item digitally, ShowBiz is steadily creating creating the online catalogue your show needs to meet this need, survive and grow in the years ahead.
Automating processes, embedding checks, adding product rules and encouraging online entry all significantly reduce the scope for error. Copying schedule and other show data from year to year not only saves vast amounts of time but reduces mistakes too.
ShowBiz captures and copies many show processes to make your show less reliant on one person. This is really useful in smaller shows sharing work among part-time employees and volunteers. The ShowBiz tasks feature allows bigger shows to manage and share work among team members too.
Increased online sales – especially e-tickets – helps your show get money in early, and irrespective of show weather later. And because you have full shopping basket visibility, you can cross-sell, up-sell and encourage users to buy early with ‘early bird’ discounts too.
A choice of dashboard widgets allows you to manage all your show activities any place, any time and on any device. Sales profiles provide an instant visual indicator of contact importance. Flexible grid views allow you to define exactly what you want to see in all the app managers.
Both show users and end users can tailor their own dashboard widgets to match their precise needs. There are nearly twenty of these already. Show users can build, save and share grid views to meet their unique reporting needs.
You can already configure ShowBiz to match your show web colours and styles and embed our software in your web site using iframes. We’re now working with web providers to develop APIs to make ShowBiz invisible to end users. It’s not about us; it’s about you and your show.
ShowBiz complies with relevant compliance standards such as GDPR. Every user action is logged to ensure compliance. Encouraging end users to enter online reduces mistakes (and disputes) over online entry and deadlines.
