Well, with achy feet and tired eyes, we came to the end of three very busy days at the Facilities Show. And what a brilliant, bustling show it was!
This was our first time exhibiting WorkMobile at the Facilities Show, which is held at the NEC in Birmingham, and it was well worth the trip down from our offices in Salford, Manchester.
As the show is organised in association with the British Institute of Facilities Management, it is the perfect place to be for all involved in this sector. From Facilities Managers to Health & Safety Managers, Operations Directors to Sales Co-ordinators, the event is designed to give the opportunity to meet varied, yet relevant people and find out.
It was great to be able to showcase WorkMobile in a face-to-face environment and increase product awareness. We managed to get the attention of lots of visitors with our unusual Japanese origami theme. We decided to go for something a little bit different at the event, and our fabulous Marketing team came up with a great ideato show people that we do not need paper forms anymore so we turn them into origami!
We created origami cranes that had a QR code on the wing which contained more information about WorkMobile to give out to everybody at the show. We also decorated our stand with lots of colourful origami cranes, butterflies, crabs, fish, flowers… and our lovely ladies kindly got themselves dressed up in geisha outfits. See all the photos on our WorkMobile Facebook page.
On our stand we were performing live demos of the product by showing interested people how to build forms on the website and access those forms on a mobile device. We were using a variety of devices to present the WorkMobile App on such as an iPhone, an iPad and a HTC Android phone, and we also showed off the new WorkMobile Desktop version on a ruggedized device.
Continuing with the theme of ‘eliminating paper’, instead of using pen and paper we ensured we used a WorkMobile form to capture visitor details! This enables us to follow up our leads quickly and accurately.
The Facilities Show was a great event which was superbly run and well organised. With a wide variety of exhibitors, we saw birds, an owl, bed bug dogs, a racing car and even Jimmy White!
A big thank you to all our team members that were involved in the three days for all their hard work and huge thanks to everybody that visited our stand to say hello!
