Sunnyvale, CA – June 12, 2014 – Jifflenow, a leading provider of secure, cloud-based enterprise meeting scheduling solutions for business-to-business (B2B) events, today announced a partnership with Global Experience Specialists (GES), a leading global provider of exhibition, event and entertainment experiences. GES and Jifflenow sales and customer service teams will work together to provide Jifflenow solutions to joint customers. This partnership will offer clients a powerful combination of industry-leading event technology through Expresso®, GES’ premier online management tool for exhibitors, and Jifflenow’s expertise in meeting scheduling.
“We’ve identified Jifflenow as a unique tool in the marketplace, and one that will deliver considerable value to both show organizers and exhibitors,” said GES Vice President of Digital Product Development & Client Solutions, Steve Gebhart. “Exhibitors are asking for ways to continually increase their return-on-investment from exhibiting at shows, and by holding more meetings with executives, prospects and customers they will be able to shorten sales cycles and deliver greater results.”
With industry-leading tools such as Expresso and a global organization of 3,000 employees, GES delivers unparalleled service and consistent execution of breakthrough experiences to customers worldwide. Exhibitors at shows that GES produces, will be able to learn about Jifflenow’s powerful yet simple meeting scheduling solution and the best ways to improve meeting scheduling, tracking and analysis of events.
“GES is recognized as an industry leader, and we’re excited to collaborate for the benefit of our joint customers,” said Hari Shetty, CEO of Jifflenow. “In the past, event marketers and event management professionals had to spend a significant amount of time and labor to manually update Excel spreadsheets and Outlook to schedule meetings at large events. Our customers report they have been able to book 40% more meetings using Jifflenow, and save up to 85% of the time required using traditional methods. We expect exhibitors will be eager to use Jifflenow to save time, money and increase event ROI.”
