Santa Rosa, Calif. – March 23, 2012 ATIV Software today released the ACC.12 eMeeting Planner app, built on the dynamic EventPilot conference app platform, for Cardiology professionals attending ACC.12 in Chicago. EventPilot is designed to provide efficient and offline access to the thousands of medical abstracts, ensuring Wi-Fi independence for organizers and attendees to instantly review the latest cardiology research. Making all conference materials available for attendees on their personal mobile devices has simplified the accessibility and navigation of medical abstracts, allowing for greater depth of learning at this annual gathering of Cardiology professionals.
“ACC’s 61st Annual Scientific Session & Expo continues our organization’s commitment to education and is a great step towards becoming a paperless event.” said Cathy Riedel, Director of the Project Management Office for ACC. “We are excited to provide our attendees the ability to review conference materials, research abstracts and get up to date conference changes in just seconds on their phones and mobile devices.”
Native EventPilot conference apps provide convenient access to all medical meeting related information from a personal schedule to session materials and exhibitor booth locations. Conference attendees have full offline and online access to pertinent event information and contacts before, during and after the event so that the learning and engagement continues well beyond the end of the meeting.
The EventPilot mobile conference app features include:
Native Mobile Event App with True Offline Functionality

Attendees can easily search and filter all scientific abstracts directly on their device. Abstracts are displayed in context as part of the session detail information and provide information as needed during the event.
Sharing and Networking
The Facebook and LinkedIn integration enables attendees to share interesting sessions with their peers and extend the reach for presenters and event organizers. Unique presentation slide tweeting to share key insights with others and integration of Twitter technology to allow easy networking.
Real-Time Updates and Reminders
