Capira Technologies partners with NYLA to create a customized mobile application for its 2017 and 2018 annual library conferences
Medford, New York., May 21, 2017 – The New York Library Association (NYLA) has partnered with Capira Technologies to create a customized mobile application for its 2017 and 2018 annual library conferences. Previously Capira Technologies had created a mobile app for the NYLA Sustainability Initiative for Libraries, and will now work with conference staff to create an enhanced edition with features not available in the previous conference app.
“NYLA is excited to be partnering with Capira Technologies for the development of our 2017 Mobile Conference App.” said Jeremy Johannesen, Director of New York Library Association. “The NYLA conference app is going to be the best ever, and Capira Technologies is a New York based company to boot!”
The new conference application will allow attendees to view and manage a list of sessions they wish to attend, see nearby restaurants and activities, exhibitor hall layout, and much more. Conference managers will also have the ability to send push notifications direct to devices, allowing them to quickly notify attendees of rescheduled sessions, sponsorships from vendors, and other items of note such as special and networking events.
“Our goal is to provide an experience for conference attendees which has all the features they would expect from a modern app, making it easier for them to manage their conference plans instead of relying on printed brochures and listings.” said Michael Berse, Lead Software Engineer for Capira Technologies.
The mobile app will be available for all 800+ NYLA conference attendees on the Apple iOS and Google Android operating systems in early October 2017. Capira Technologies will be on-site exhibiting at the NYLA annual conference from November 8th to November 11th in Saratoga Springs, NY.
