EventsAIR drives event management software further with its new release of OnAIR


Version 2 of the OnAIR virtual and hybrid event solution increases interactive engagement.

BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND  – The events industry landscape has transformed to an online environment overnight with event organizers looking at ways to retain business and engage with prospective clients to avoid cancellation or postponements of events. During this time, EventsAIR launched its OnAIR virtual and hybrid event solution in May 2020, which gave event organizers a way to curate content in an interactive environment. Since then, OnAIR has enabled a multitude of events by a range of clients to be presented virtually, fulfilling both the event objective and increasing the reach to more potential participants. Now in July, EventsAIR has released Version 2 of OnAIR, introducing more features to improve attendee engagement and avoid online fatigue.

The EventsAIR team has been working around the clock to assist event planners globally to deliver virtual events as well as looking at ways that OnAIR could be enhanced. With over forty thousand (and rapidly climbing) attendees having used OnAIR, it is set to be an essential tool on the road to business recovery for event organizers.

Version 2 of OnAIR includes a list of new features to engage, educate and motivate virtual attendees. These include:

– Gamification where attendees can earn points based on online behaviors
– Full Custom Branding and White Labelling to personalize the event brand
– Instant Live Polling that is controlled by the presenter (or moderator) in real time
– Analytics Dashboard to measure attendance, origin, and a range of statistics
– Poster Gallery that is an addition to ePoster, allowing for a large number of interactive
presentations to be filtered and searched
– Discussion Forums to encourage attendee interaction and to get the conversation started during
sessions
– Pre-scheduled meetings with attendees, sponsors or exhibitors throughout the event

“OnAIR just keeps on getting better at delivering new and exciting events. It is great to see the range of different styles of virtual events coming to life in place of meetings, conference, and trade shows that would have been cancelled if not for OnAIR”, says Joe Ciliberto, Global Director Sales and Marketing EventsAIR.

Trevor Gardiner, CEO of EventsAIR, says, “The feedback from our clients on how OnAIR has given them a real solution to run great interactive virtual events as opposed to webinar-style meetings, has been encouraging. The roadmap for EventsAIR and OnAIR will continue to improve the ways of enhancing the attendee experience in all event environments, whether they be virtual, hybrid or live.

As hybrid events become more common, the OnAIR solution combined with the EventsAIR platform will deliver a seamless experience for blended live and virtual events, connecting live and virtual audiences. The range of different collaborative and interactive tools such as live Q&A, meeting hub, gamification, live polling and exhibitor marketplace enrich the virtual engagement experience while expanding the reach to audiences around the world.

J&M Murdoch drives business growth with PODFather


J&M Murdoch, the transportation, waste management and skip hire specialist, is seeing the benefit of implementing PODFather’s delivery tracking and proof of delivery system into the transportation division of its 70-vehicle strong operation. Murdoch’s vehicles run 24 hours a day, 363 days of the year and the team needed a software solution to automate and streamline several business-critical tasks. PODFather was selected as the supplier of choice for Murdoch’s haulage division and is now relied upon to automate vehicle checks, schedule and communicate job instructions with drivers, track vehicle movements, provide electronic proof of delivery and manage invoicing. As a direct result of implementing PODFather technology, Murdoch’s has seen invoicing turnaround time slashed from seven days to just 24 hours.

PODFather’s delivery tracking and proof of delivery system is used daily to manage a range of tasks across Murdoch’s heavy haulage division. “Technology is a key driver in moving our business forward in terms of service and profitability”, comments Leigh Colville, Account Manager at Murdoch’s. “With PODFather we have streamlined our processes to such an extent that we are now able to organise, issue and monitor jobs much more easily. Ultimately, we can now invoice jobs within 24 hours of completion, with minimal paperwork. It’s so much quicker; the process used to take up to seven days. This has had a huge impact on the financial efficiency of our organisation.

In addition, the PODFather solution is used by the transport team to handle the allocation and sharing of job details with the fleet. “The PODFather system makes it easier for me to do my job, especially as it’s cloud based,” adds John Allan, Operations Manager. “I used to have to physically be onsite to deal with issues, or make schedule changes, but now I can do that anywhere, from any device.”

As a result of introducing the PODFather system to their operation, Murdoch’s now has better visibility of overall fleet performance and revenue generated by its fleet. “We can now see what revenue is being generated by which parts of our fleet. This information is hugely important when making strategic business decisions regarding utilisation,” adds Leigh Colville.

J&M Murdoch has been a familiar site on UK roads since 1965. Still a family-run outfit, Murdoch’s operate a fleet of 70 vehicles, with locations in the West and East of Scotland. With an impressive array of vehicles delivering such a wide variety of items, the Murdoch team prides itself on offering an unparalleled service that treats efficiency as a number one priority.

“Good service sits at the heart of our operation,” comments Drew Murdoch, Managing Director. “Last year saw us recognised by the London Stock Exchange as one of the 1,000 companies to inspire Britain. Our staff have always been a USP for our business but in recent years we are seeing technology playing a more important role in both the development of our service offering and the future growth of our company.”
