IML Interactive can offer you the following audience response services:
An alphanumeric keypad that includes email symbols and decimal points
enables delegates to provide quantitative and qualitative feedback. Similar to
the text function on a mobile phone, the Communicator allows delegates to
respond with one text message per question of up to 127 characters.
> MESSAGE MANAGER
Similar to Texting, the Message Manager software allows the facilitator to decide
which comments to display to the audience, thus ensuring that the session
remains focused and constructive. Multiple text response messages sent via the
keypad are received by a central computer where they can be reviewed, filtered
and prioritised instantly before they are displayed on screen. The facilitator can
also send multiple messages to the audience via the Communicator.
> STORED RESPONSE
Stored Response is a unique keypad feature that gives individual participants
the freedom to vote at their own convenience and location. Responses are then
collected and downloaded into a central database for further analysis. This is a
highly cost-effective, flexible and efficient way of gathering information from a
large number of people that cannot meet together all at the same time.
Each Communicator keypad features a telephone-quality microphone that is
ideal for Q&A sessions. Audience members wishing to speak simply press the
activation button on their Communicator and speak into it in the same way as
they do with a mobile phone.
> SPEAKER MANAGER
This software identifies members of the audience wanting to speak and places
them in an automated queuing system. The presenter is therefore in greater
control of a more focused and structured debate.
The Communicator keypad can also accommodate a smartcard that can store
pre-programmed personal information (biographies, pictures and more) of each
individual delegate. Through this functionality individual member's responses
can be identified and users can fast track pre-registration and share
> TOUCH & VOTE
Add variety to your presentation by superimposing multiple-choice question
options over images during live voting sessions. Questions can even be placed
over live video footage and web images.
Companies or sponsors can maximize their exposure by displaying their logo or
promotional message on keypad screens, smartcards, wrist straps attached to
the keypads or projector screens.
This laptop-messaging solution combines messaging and voting to facilitate
real-time, interactive communication between individuals and groups. enotes is
a powerful tool for generating qualitative and quantitative feedback from your
audience which in essence works like an electronic flipchart.
> SILENT AUCTION
This function enables guests to instantly bid on items via the keypad, either
anonymously or identified, whilst staying seated. Participants are continuously
updated on the status of the bid, promoting more bidding activity and effectively
generating more funds. Allow unsuccessful bidders to donate money through
the pledge functionality.
> RISK ASSESSMENT
Keypad voting technology provides a quick and effective means to assess
impact and likelihood comparisons and immediately projects results on a risk
assessment XY matrix.
> ELECTRONIC ANNUAL GENERAL MEETINGS (AGMs)
In conjunction with Computershare's "Electronic Meeting Management
System (eMMS)" IML delivered the first electronic AGM in Africa. Through this
electronic voting system each shareholder is given an individualised smartcard
that can be inserted into a keypad to cast a vote. At the close of voting, the
system calculates all live and proxy votes in seconds, and the results are
displayed on screen immediately at the AGM. Electronic voting at AGMs is a
rising international trend.
Interactive quizzes can be created by programming a range of questions and
challenging the audience to compete against each other individually or within
teams, operating on a "fastest-finger-on-the-button" principal. The scoreboard
functionality allows responses to be calculated immediately and revealed live.
A buzzer sound can also be added.
