IntelliEvent’s cloud-based solution, Lightning, strikes event industry
InfoComm Las Vegas, NV Booth #C9251 – June 11, 2012- IntelliEvent Lightning has experienced much success with its recent implementations of companies across the production and event industry resulting in a positive impact on their operations. Along with this impact, each organization has benefited uniquely from the ever-growing capabilities of this cloud-based solution.
IntelliEvent has offered the event rental industry an operations management solution for the past 15 years. Express was the first program available to customers and it has been the software solution for hundreds of businesses for many years. Lightning is an evolution of this previous standalone system, and IntelliEvent’s offering of more resources to its clients. Many businesses are growing with IntelliEvent Express and switching to Lightning as they continue to develop this new technology. Mi Media Productions of Irvine, CA will be one of these organizations.
“We’ve been with IntelliEvent for almost five years now and we couldn’t be happier, while the Express module is great, we’re looking forward to the transition over to Lightning. Being able to access our database from anywhere in the world will be a huge benefit and we can already sense that the program is very user friendly,” Mike Ivey, President, Mi Media Productions.
One of the defining features of IntelliEvent’s Lighting software is that it is accessible anywhere with an internet connection. Since all records are stored in the cloud, users can access their accounts from a variety of devices. A View West has taken full advantage of this capability and now operates completely on tablets. After the successful implementation of Lightning, all of their employees use tablets to manage their events and can coordinate orders while mobile.
“A View West operates solely on iPads with IntelliEvent Lightning on them. The portability and real time inventory status is what allows my company to function properly. This makes it so that everyone on the team can be in different places, but still be on the same page” said Brandi Goldapp, Owner, A View West.
Outside of the cloud accessibility, Lightning has also incorporated other features to make the life of the user simpler. One of these integrations is with the Google calendar program. This allows events in IntelliEvent Lightning to be transferred over to the user’s calendar, seamlessly into their Google account. Automating such a process removes another step in daily operations of a business.
“Words do not describe how great the Google calendar feature is. It is the best thing ever when you are busy. I didn’t even have to re-enter everything to my calendar, it just happened, thank you so very much for that,” Manny Peregrina, Total Tournament Solutions.
For many who have chosen IntelliEvent Lightning the implementation process has been a quick and painless one. With the ability to do data file transfers, IntelliEvent has the capability to move data stored from previous software into Lightning.
“The set-up and implementation of IntelliEvent Lightning was one of the fastest and easiest of any program that I have used. Very user friendly! The fact that IntelliEvent Lightning is web-based is what is most appealing. We are constantly out on site or on the road, so the fact that it is mobile and can be easily accessed from any computer or mobile device, including my phone, is fantastic! We also enjoy the fact that it syncs all of our jobs to our Google calendar – keeping our schedule always at our fingertips,” Shane Myers, Swag Décor.
Development of IntelliEvent Lightning is ongoing in an effort to reach its full capabilities. IntelliEvent will be at InfoComm at booth #C9251 to demonstrate the latest version of Lightning.
