Boston, MA — March 17th, 2014 —
Attendware, the innovator of
software solutions, today announced it is changing its name to Attend.com effective today. The new name more accurately reflects company evolution and rapid growth. In the past three months the company has garnered over 300 new customers worldwide, strengthened its leadership team and expanded its solution and market presence. "The product has grown into a complete platform for successful events," said Drew D'Agostino, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder. "Attend.com more accurately communicates our broad, disruptive vision for this business as we continue to expand our market presence."
"Events mean business and the company's strong growth necessitates this change," said Greg Skloot, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Attend.com. "Events are making a comeback into the marketing mix as organizations lose face time with prospects and customers as more of the sales process moves online. Companies are looking for tools that keep their event operational costs down and have embedded analytics that are able to measure ROI and enable systematic testing and improvement for events. This is our vision and it is better captured by the Attend.com name."
