Attendware Changes Name to Attend.com to Reflect Rapid Growth

In Q1 Company Adds Over 300 Customers, Expands Leadership Team With Seasoned Executives and Delivers New Product Solutions

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/17/14 -- Attendware, the innovator of event management software solutions, today announced it is changing its name to Attend.com effective today. The new name more accurately reflects company evolution and rapid growth. In the past three months the company has garnered over 300 new customers worldwide, strengthened its leadership team and expanded its solution and market presence.

"The product has grown into a complete platform for successful events," said Drew D'Agostino, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder. "Attend.com more accurately communicates our broad, disruptive vision for this business as we continue to expand our market presence."

"Events mean business and the company's strong growth necessitates this change," said Greg Skloot, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Attend.com. "Events are making a comeback into the marketing mix as organizations lose face time with prospects and customers as more of the sales process moves online. Companies are looking for tools that keep their event operational costs down and have embedded analytics that are able to measure ROI and enable systematic testing and improvement for events. This is our vision and it is better captured by the Attend.com name."

Growth highlights include:

  • Over 300 New Customers - Use of Attend.com's solution has escalated throughout Q1 2014. BMW Melbourne, National Aquarium, Sony Ericsson, General Motors' Chevrolet and the University of Virginia all use Attend.com's solution to manage events.

  • Expanded Corporate Leadership - To accelerate its growth, the company recently added two experienced executives to its leadership team, including John Donnelly III as Chief Revenue Officer and Jim McDonough as Vice President of Sales.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.
