Star Alliance GmbH
The German Web Agency mp group GmbH developed an Event Management Tool for Star Alliance.
Star Alliance needed an easy to use web-application for flexible and effective planning, organisation and management of worldwide events and meetings. Through a smart, responsive, web based interface, event organizers are able to create and manage events, invite guests, manage schedules and more. For invitees, the tool provides them with all essential information such as the agenda, information about their hotel, their flight details and where the group will meet for dinner. Another interesting challenge was to make the tool available offline.
To ensure the product was as flexible as possible, mp group chose TYPO3 Flow as a foundation. Every event is different and has a different pictorial theme. One event can have multiple meetings. A meeting has an agenda and documents. mp group also had to consider different user levels: Event organizers, invitees, participants and guests.
Event administrators have their own interface while a second frontend was created so that invitees and participants can look up their event specific information. This responsive frontend has been built using Twitter Bootstrap.
Star Alliance is a decentralized organization. Bringing people together for meetings is essential, but also causes a big administrative overhead. Star Alliance now has this custom solution to organize events on a global scale. Participants receive invitations, updates and travel information instantly. This is especially important if there are schedule changes or important information has to be distributed to participants. Even better, having this tool available for external guests gives a great impression to the invitee.
