We love it when customers find ways to push the envelope with our products and Microsoft Dynamics CRM. In this case, David Conroy, Director 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.
