Integrating with Eventpedia

Eventpedia by Avodigy is an interactive mobile application for events of any size that enables attendees to access event information at their fingertips. It allows organizations to pull in their event related information and share it with the attendees. It helps organizations to mobilize their events; as well as keep participants engaged and up-to-date. See the Eventpedia website for more information on benefits and features of the app.

Aptify and Avodigy have worked together to provide a well-rounded solution to get the Event-related information to Eventpedia app, directly from Aptify, using Aptify's service layer. This integration enables you to upload or update Event information from Aptify to Avodigy's Mobile Content Manager (MCM), with a single click. Mobile Content Manager is a dynamic user portal that allows the organizations to manage their Eventpedia app. Data changes in Mobile Content Manager are reflected instantaneously on the app, on all platforms.
