Bartizan Introduces iLeads Mobile App for iPhone and iPod Touch

World’s first lead retrieval app eliminates exhibitors need to rent expensive equipment at tradeshows.

Dec. 7, 2009 – YONKERS, N.Y. — YONKERS, New York — Bartizan Connects is pleased to announce the upcoming availability of its new, first-of-its-kind iPhone App for tradeshow lead retrieval.

With features such as voice and written notes, surveys and qualifiers, along with the ability to integrate with Salesforce.com and tracking the number of leads gathered throughout the show, the application is expected to be available for free download in April 1, 2010.

“With iLeads the emphasis is no longer on the hardware and all of the headaches related to equipment rental, now it’s all about providing exhibitor’s access to detailed lead information that brings buyers and sellers together. There will be no shipping costs, staffing costs will be reduced and maintenance costs are eliminated,” said Lew Hoff, president, Bartizan Connects.

With this ground-breaking app, exhibitors can capture, qualify and manage tradeshow leads anywhere. They can also attach a photo, voice note and a written note to leads. With the iPhone or iPod Touch exhibitors can follow up instantly with tradeshow leads gathered with a text, email or phone call and send updates right from the tradeshow floor to headquarters, customers and prospects. Exhibitors can also check out lead profiles on Google, LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.

Bartizan will debut this app at the premier conference for event professionals, Expo! Expo! Conference, at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Ga., on Wednesday, December 9, 2009 from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The event attracts an average audience of 2,500 exhibition and event managers from around the world. Bartizan will be giving product demonstrations of the iLeads app at Bartizan’s booth 1130.

“Trade show organizers, attendees and exhibitors across a range of industries and show profiles, plus our focus groups, have made it clear: exhibitors like lead retrieval but dislike having to rent high-priced lead retrieval equipment,” said Elizabeth Mazei, executive vice president & COO, Bartizan Connects. “They do not have sufficient time to learn how to use the features of a rented lead retrieval device. With the introduction of this app, we have made lead retrieval more cost effective, easier to use…even fun.”

To download iLeads iPhone App when it is available in April, iPhone and iTouch users may go to the Apple App Store within iTunes and search for ‘iLeads’.
