On the phone
Camera phones arenít just for taking pictures anymore. Some providers of lead-retrieval technology have created software that turns the devices into scanners.
The key-chain scanner
Aside from offering a little keychain scanner for collecting encoded badge information, the ScanEvent system from event marketing/management company Global Executive (www.globalexec.com) uses advanced Optical Intelligence technology, created by Scanbuy, which allows exhibitors to use their camera phones to capture lead data.
"The show producer pays to license the software; exhibitors download the free application to their cameras," says Leonora Valvo, president of Global Executive.
