Avenues, South Asia’s largest eCommerce company have chosen the prestigious World Malayalee Council Biennial Global Conference scheduled to take place in Kochi in the first week of August to globally launch of their latest Internet based software solution called EventAvenue.
The solution is specially designed for the Event Management industry and it empowers the event manager to handle all the details regarding managing the event from a single interface and helps him to reach out to his event exhibitors and attendees anywhere in the world. EventAvenue automates almost all the work processes involved with managing the event and eliminates the problems associated with the traditional manual process viz. increased errors, higher administrative costs and longer execution times.
Vishwas Patel, CEO of Avenues
, the company behind EventAvenue says, “To put it simply, just as the way the PC sent the typewriter to the junkyard, EventAvenue will soon drive obsolete the current manual methods of managing an event. We have automated almost all the work processes of the event manager and have built into a single window interface, a state-of-the-art solution that is easier, faster, cheaper and simply more efficient.”
Delegates intending to attend the WMC Biennial Global Conference in Kochi are spread all over the globe. Traditionally registration would have meant making numerous long distance calls, a flurried exchange of mails, grappling with the uncertainties of international money transfer and living with information that would more often than not be outdated. Now with EventAvenue, they can simply log into the World Malayalee Council website (http://www.worldmalayalee.org/
), read the latest happenings, register for the event and pay their registration fee at the website using their credit cards. Within a few seconds, the registration process is complete.
. Andrew Pappachen, Global Chairman, World Malayalee Council
says, “The mission of WMC is to create a global Malayalee community able to communicate and co-operate each other and continue the connection through generations thus maintaining the Malayalee identity for years to come. Since the community is spread across the globe, the ease of use of an internet based solution like EventAvenue will motivate members of the community to attend events and increase the bonding within the community.”
IndusInd Bank, the main sponsor of the event, was instrumental in bringing in EventAvenue to the table and in convincing Avenues to launch their software solution at this prestigious event. Mr. Varghese Thambi, Sr. Vice President and Head of Retail Banking
IndusInd Bank says, “IndusInd Bank has been at the forefront of deploying technology to improve the service levels for our customers. IndusInd Bank enjoys close ties with Avenues through their tie-up in the internet banking arena. This has been beneficial for our customers as they now use their IndusInd Bank Accounts to pay for the goods and services of over 4000 of Avenues' web merchants retailing millions of different types of products and services. Given our positive experience with Avenues, we felt that it would be mutually beneficial if a global organization like the World Malayalee Council and Avenues came together and used technology to make things better."
With EventAvenue, event organizers will find the event management process fast and accurate; there will be huge savings in time and in administrative costs and most importantly, an up-to-the-second update of the delegates’ status is available to them at the click of a mouse.
