We love it when customers find ways to push the envelope with our products and Microsoft Dynamics CRM. In this case, David Conroy,┬áDirector of Information Technology for the Massachusetts Association of REALTORS┬«, wanted to create an easier way to register attendees at their events. As a RAMCO customer, David was using the Cobalt Meetings & Events module to manage MAR’s events. He decided to hook up a USB barcode scanner to CRM to check registrants in when they arrive at the event. Please watch David’s YouTube video to see how he quickly and easily built a solution to streamline the check-in process.

Update – Dave has updated the solution described above to use server side code and short URLs to dynamically build check-in pages for each meeting. Check out Dave’s Prezi and his project on GitHub for more information.
