Startup Week: Scheduit creates 1st AI assisted networking app for event engagement
As Startup Week continues, we are happy to announce the launch of new AI assisted features to the Scheduit platform that include polling and social media sharing with other event attendees.
Networking can help professionals find new opportunities; build valuable relationships; seek advice and assistance, and be positively influenced by new – and more experienced – mentors. In an increasingly digital world, networking still retains value for businesses of all shapes and sizes, with conferences and events offering an excellent opportunity for networking.
Scheduit is an app that connects professionals together and helps them to network efficiently, organize meetings and build business opportunities. Users ‘announce their presence’ to show when they are available to network, and the app intelligently alerts only compatible users that are nearby. Through the ‘Schedumeter’ users can see if the compatibility is high, in which case they can request a meeting.
By incorporating new features for business events, Scheduit is taking advantage of the increasing demand for event management software, which is expected to grow to $9.3 billion by 2020.
“At Scheduit, we want to solve the predicament of not being connected with the right people,” says founder and machine learning expert Dr Abdalla Kablan. “Our mission is to use A.I. to help connect compatible people who are ready to work with each other. When such synergies are built, new values are created and great things happen.”
Scheduit’s new features make it the first Artificial Intelligence assisted networking app with event engagement features. At an event, users can flip through profiles of fellow attendees, message them and arrange meetings ahead of time. Attendees can also use the app to download materials from exhibitors, vote on polls related to sessions, and share the event on social media. Both users and the event must be registered with Scheduit beforehand.
“At Scheduit, we believe a meeting can change your life,” added Kablan. “Traditional social networks are made for cementing the relationships you have; Scheduit helps you build the ones that you need.”
