The next item on our list of “stuff to complete” has been a Delegate module, to enable those of our clients who are doing conference content to manage the people attending them. The brief was fairly complex; the system had to cope with both paid delegates and those getting in free, it had to seamlessly integrate with the delegate ticket purchasing, it had to be able to send out a block of invites to a single recipient who could then pass them out to others, and all these names and details had to be managed, communicated with and, ultimately, appear in a searchable Delegate Directory.
Oh, and security is paramount, with checks required for both paid and invited Delegates, systems in place to make sure that the right people were accessing the right content and yet still maintaining the ability for the system users to control, change and edit how the system works and what content it was gathering.
We’d like to think that what we’ve done is elegant, straightforward and, hopefully, reduces a very complex process into easily understood steps. It’s already in use and, although there’s still a few loose ends to tidy up, we’re pretty happy with how it’s turned out.
Again, we’ve got a fully working model that we can show you around. Please get in touch over here; we’d love to hear from you.
