So what does a next generation business development platform look like?
PMBC first used our solution at Automobili-D, a section of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit focused on connecting the mobility startup community with major players in the automotive industry, enabling them to facilitate key connections that will lead to further innovation.
Connect Space enables PMBC to handle registrations, email communications and push notifications, and host all of their initiatives in one place. They’re able to keep all data around their events in one location leading to more consistent data across events and more efficient data management. With our event planning tools PMBC can manage their entire matchmaking program from creating registration to the day of one-on-one meetings.
Meetings based on data
By using Connect Space Forms PMBC gathers the necessary information to facilitate high-value meetings. Buyers input their needs and any additional decision criteria, Suppliers can select the needs from buyers they feel they can fulfill and explain why they’re the best solution all in an easy-to-digest interface. Both parties are clear on what they’re meeting about, leading to valuable interactions and excited attendees.
PMBC needed a solution that helped them roll with the punches. With Connect Space, buyers can rank suppliers that want to meet with them. Meeting time and space is limited at events, so it’s possible Buyers aren’t able to meet with every supplier that day. In case of a missed meeting PMBC can quickly reschedule onsite from a vetted list of alternates. Buyers receive the promised number of meetings while not sacrificing the meetings’ quality.
More business is done from phones than ever before so in order to have a truly next-generation business development platform PMBC needed a mobile component to the solution. Our mobile app is a powerful set of business development tools at attendees’ fingertips. PMBC can keep guests informed through the app with push notifications called Bulletins. Attendees can view an attendee list, send connection requests and contact them once a connection is made. We’ve already discussed the time and space constraints inherent in any matchmaking event, our mobile app is the solution: Attendees can send meeting requests to set up their own meetings.
Between our mobile and web apps, PMBC can facilitate a highly interactive experience where members can keep track of connections from previous events while staying updated on all upcoming events as well. With a full ecosystem at their disposal PMBC can provide value beyond the day of the event.
