etouches Unveils eSelect
New Software Product Provides Event Organizers with Solution for Submission, Selection & Scheduling Processes
NORWALK, Conn., May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- etouches has announced the general availability of eSelect, its latest software product designed to automate the laborious collection and selection processes associated with events such as call for papers/abstracts, contests and award nominations. The announcement was made at the American Society of Association Executives' (ASAE) Annual Springtime Expo conference held in Washington, DC.
"We saw a growing need, especially within our association and non-profit client base, for a more robust application to handle abstracts and awards," explained Leonora Valvo, visionary founder and CEO of etouches. "Call for sessions, speakers, abstracts and awards involves a lot of heavy lifting for the administrator of the program. We saw a gap in the market for an integrated way to streamline these processes and eliminate redundant work. As with all of etouches' tools, eSelect is highly configurable, allowing the administrator to decide the workflow, design the selection criteria and slot chosen individuals and sessions directly into the agenda."
Nicola Rossetti, Vice President of Strategy at etouches, was a major contributor to the product design of eSelect. Prior to joining etouches, Rossetti was a member of the Colloquium Group, a large European professional conference organizer (PCO) that chose etouches as its event management platform. Colloquium was a key stakeholder in the design of eSelect and led by Rossetti. "The key requirement of the eSelect product was to ensure that selected speakers and sessions were deeply integrated into the scheduling process for the conference agenda. We lost hundreds of hours each year managing our clients on software tools that treated abstract management as a stand-alone process. eSelect's connection with the overall conference agenda is truly breakthrough."
The flexibility designed into eSelect also makes it an ideal tool to handle award submissions and selection processes. The International Special Events Society (ISES) New York City chapter chose etouches' eSelect to power its 2012 Big Apple Awards. Already an etouches enthusiast, ISES New York City added eSelect to its etouches Pro line being used to manage the event website, email marketing, and ticket sales for the awards gala.
The eSelect product is available through etouches' +Plus Program and can be used with the Quad or Pro product lines.
