Cvent to Release New Abstract Management Product

Meetings technology company Cvent plans to launch a new abstract management solution later this year, it announced this week.

Available either as a component of the Cvent Event Cloud or as a standalone product, the solution will be designed to streamline the content collection and review process for conference planners issuing a "call for proposals." Its key features will include the ability to:

• Customize workflows for a more streamlined submission and review processes
• Create custom grading scales and review criteria to match the needs of each project
• Automate email communication between submitters, reviewers, speakers, and organizers
• Match submissions to the most appropriate reviewer(s)
• Develop a complete program schedule from accepted submissions
• Publish sessions, speakers, and resources directly into an associated event agenda

"This product release is an exciting expansion of solutions we can offer to the meetings and event industry and was based on direct feedback we've received from our customers on having the ability to streamline workflows," said Brian Ludwig, senior vice president of sales at Cvent. "Our goal is to help them collect, organize, and manage these submissions in a more efficient way by leveraging existing frameworks we have in place for a seamless process."
