New upgrades to Constant Contact's EventSpot platform are making it easier for businesses to manage their events while on-the-go.

This is because the event management platform has introduced mobile features that help streamline the ticketing and check-in process. The new features include a mobile check-in application and an integration with Apple's Passbook.

The Event Check-In app allows event planners quickly and accurately check-in guests. This is because they can use the app to confirm registration by first name, last name and email address, as well as check-in attendees by name, ticket number or QR code. Moreover, EventSpot's integration with Passbook makes it easy for iOS6 users to download and access their tickets with the push of a button.

"Small businesses clearly recognize the opportunity that mobile offers. Last fall we released results of an EventSpot Customer Survey in which 81 percent said they expect to increase their use of mobile technology to market their events in the coming year," said Chris Litster, vice president and general manager of EventSpot from Constant Contact. "The savings, both time and money, that mobile technologies present to our customers are huge. With these mobile integrations, EventSpot is putting our small business and nonprofit customers at the forefront of mobile innovation in event management."
