Cvent Upgrades Planner Experience with New User Interface for Event Management
LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--
(NYSE: CVT), a leading cloud-based enterprise event management platform,
today unveiled a completely redesigned user interface - the Blue Release
- at its annual Corporate Meetings Summit in Las Vegas.�The new
interface for Cvent's (News - Alert) event management platform provides streamlined
navigation and a greatly enhanced workflow for building and managing
events.�The Blue Release will be made available to all Cvent users in
the third quarter of 2014.
"Cvent has become the event management technology leader by listening to
planners' needs," said Brian
Ludwig, senior vice president of Sales for Cvent. "We have built a
robust platform with deep and varied capabilities over the past 15
years. This platform facelift brings a new simplicity and elegance to
the user interface while maintaining the same rich functionality. We've
already received great feedback from clients who've tested the Blue
Release, and we believe all Cvent clients will be very pleased with it."
The Blue Release adds elements like drag-and-drop editing, interactive
charts and live updating to empower users to complete tasks with fewer
clicks. The more responsive interface runs faster and also offers

substantial development effort focused on advancing design and usability
standards and marks an important milestone in the ongoing evolution of
