The Tampa Bay Business Journal and Tampa Bay Technology Forum have recognized Haneke Design, a leading interactive design and development firm, as a finalist in the Innovation of the Year Category for the 2012 BizTech Innovation Summit Awards & Expo. Finalists and winners will be recognized at the March 17 event, which will take place at the Tampa Convention Center.
“It’s an honor for Haneke Design to be chosen as a finalist in this highly competitive category,” said Jody Haneke, president of Haneke Design. “It’s very exciting to have our first product, CaptureTab, recognized and supported by our local business and tech industry peers.”
The second annual BizTech, hosted by the Tampa Bay Business Journal and the Tampa Bay Technology Forum, will bring together local area businesses and technology vendors. The summit will kick off with an expo featuring exhibitors providing products and/or services covering areas such as software, hardware, consulting, information technology, telecommunications, web services, mobile applications, and much more. The expo will be followed by an awards luncheon honoring Tampa Bay area businesses for their innovation and leadership.
CaptureTab is an iPad survey application that allows companies to better engage prospects, collect valuable contact information and get immediate feedback at trade shows and conferences. The application was designed to help clients accomplish the four goals for trade show success: driving traffic, attracting attention, securing and providing information, and leaving a memorable impression on prospects. CaptureTab achieves these goals by offering an exciting and fun way for companies to showcase their product and service offerings to potential prospects, while obtaining leads and other data from them. CaptureTab is customizable, and offers customers the option to incentivize survey participation with things like giveaways, rewards, discounts, and other prizes.
Additionally, CaptureTab features an integrated QR code scanning feature, where trade show participants can scan a customized QR code given to them before the show, have their contact data automatically entered into the app, and send an alert to the booth owner when their most important clients arrive, all in real-time. And thanks to the iPad’s total portability, company representatives can also leverage the device to interact with people in their booth, at a café table, or in a breakout session.
The BizTech Innovation Summit Awards & Expo will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on March 17. For additional information and registration, visit tbtf.org or click here.
