Audience response systems (ARS) have been around for a long time, but were often out of reach for many event planners. It often involved renting devices that would allow attendees to ask questions, respond to polls and fill out evaluations via those devices. Today, options are available that eliminate the need for special devices.
Several companies are providing ARS that are accessible via your attendees’ mobile devices. This can significantly reduce the cost to the event organizer.
Q&A Link offers event organizers a text based system. No WiFi or internet connection is required for your attendees to access the system, and they can participate no matter what kind of mobile phone they use.
