Technology of the Future: Crowdshaping

Trade Shows have become outwardly data-centric, and they have to be. How would we build better shows in the future if we did not have data that supported and called for change? Technology is changing the way we use data and planning for our events by using innovative technology to harness crowdshaping.

Think of crowdshaping as reacting to data. Technology, social media and the use of GPS has given us the ability to know what people are doing, where they are and what they think about things, in any given situation. Reacting and making changes to the situation in real-time is crowdshaping.

The uses for this kind of technology in the trade show industry are endless. Our constant connection to our smartphones has made it possible for show organizers to have instant data that could simultaneously improve an attendee’s experience. Think shorter lunch lines, more seating in session rooms, the ability to ensure an attendee never had to wait for a shuttle.

This kind of data could provide a better experience for exhibitors too. Show mobile apps could control crowdshaping by allowing exhibitors access to preferences, location and influx of attendees. This could provide valuable ROI information before the attendee even arrives to their booth.

As crowdshaping technology improves, show organizers will have the ability to greatly improve the experience for all parties attending a show, making this real-time reactive data infinitely valuable.


CompuSystems Launches Charity Team to Help Local Communities

Team Donates Food and Clothing to Local Families in Need

Downers Grove Ill. – 4/19/17 – The start of 2017 was full of New Year resolutions for most people and CompuSystems was no different. Pioneered by one of our own employees, Sarah Musur rounded up a group of employees who shared Sarah’s passion and beliefs of helping those in need and formed the CompuSystems Charity Team. Since its creation the team has put together two different charity events to help the local community.

In late January the team’s first project was a coat drive with the goal of helping the less fortunate stay warm throughout the brutal Chicago winter. Employees were asked to donate new or lightly used coats to be donated to the Hesed House in Aurora, IL

Next up was a food drive that added a little friendly competition by breaking the office up into teams by department. As a whole the team collected over 900 items that were donated to the Downers Grove Area FISH Food Pantry. The pantry is an all-volunteer organization.

“On behalf of the volunteers in the FISH organization, I want to thank CompuSystems for the enormous amount of food they donated to us. We assist about 200 families a month and I can assure you that the generosity of those connected with CompuSystems will greatly help our neediest neighbors.” stated June Miller, Corresponding Secretary for the FISH Pantry.

These charitable examples demonstrate the passion CompuSystems’ employees have for both helping their clients, each other and their communities.

“I am incredibly proud of our Charity Team and the success they’ve had thus far. Our core company values include teamwork and caring for one another,” explained Chris Williams, President of CompuSystems. “Our Charity Team not only embodies that but is a perfect example of the amazing people we have here at CompuSystems. I look forward to future initiatives and building our relationship with the community.”.
