  • A full range of services, for meetings large and small, simple and complex
  • Functionality that includes online collection, multiple levels of review, conference planning and task delegation, notification, copy-editing, personal scheduler, exhibits, post-acceptance data collection, and output to print, Web, and CD
  • Appearance and behavior customized for each client and application.
  • Extremely flexible data collection forms with automatic validation
  • A very easy user experience. Our systems are used by doctors and nurses, editors and engineers, security specialists and social workers, gym teachers and geologists, and people in nearly every country on the planet
  • A hierarchical approach to password-protection that enables the delegation of selected programming tasks to volunteers
