The best check-in apps for your next event
Product launches, fashion shows, gallery openings, open days and sales events are a great way to get current customers to try your recent launch products and new customers to see and feel your product before their first purchase, why not capture these details with a check in app.
If data is king then contacts are queen. And when it comes to running an event, the most important things to capture on the day are:
- Sales, who has and who will purchase your product because of the event
- Data about who attended
- Which guests are viewing and trying your products
- Data about their purchase behavior
- Their willingness to repurchase a product by your brand
- Capturing information about whether they are willing to refer your brand onto a friend.
One of the easiest ways to gather this data is directly after a product launch or sales event. We have tried and tested three of the best to help you gather contact information quickly so that your guests can return to trying and hopefully buying your products.
iCapture is used on multiple devices (iPad, iPhone, Android devices) and adds data to the same list. This is great for expos, trade shows or larger events where you have multiple sales people gathering contact information to add to your database.
iCapture works best for events where you don’t have an established or confirmed guest list. It’s a simple and quick way to gather contact information for any walk in customers and add them to your database you can customise questions or just add a name and email address for simple data collection.
COST: Annual Package range from $10 – $25 US Dollars.
This one is super simple to use and their video ensures you don’t waste time guessing how to best use the system. The system user interface is great looking and is worth your time.
Zkipster is best for events where you have an established guest list. This list is easily added by downloading Zkipsters CSV template, completing the fields and re-uploading into the system.

Event Farm is one of the first iPad check-in apps launched for the events industry. Event farms key selling point is that their landing page is brandable in conjunction to their check-in service app. We recommend the check-in app only and entering your guest’s list is as easy as downloading the CV template (or one you created yourself) and re-uploading the list into their system, alternatively, you can add all guests manually.
COST: Using the app for up to 100 guests is free of $75 per event for up to 3500 guests.
