doo wanted to help event organisers streamline, automate and personalise the end-to-end event attendee journey – from invitation management and marketing through to registration and live event tracking.
It had already created a platform demo with basic functionality but needed a trusted vendor to facilitate continuous capability improvements and help it evolve the platform to gain a competitive edge. So, in 2014, doo kicked off its long-term partnership with ELEKS.
ELEKS’ experts helped doo build a comprehensive modular SaaS platform for digitising corporate events, trade fairs and conferences. Marketed as a flexible white-label solution customised for enterprise clients of all kinds, it automates online registrations and attendee management, event marketing tasks and real-time analytics. What’s more, doo’s platform combines the functions of smart CRM, ticketing tool, website-building tool, and analytics and reporting functions in one intuitive solution.
The ELEKS team implemented the functionality of the platform for three user roles: platform admin, event organiser, and event attendee. This was achieved through a combination of custom-developed components and the embedding of third-party tools, including editors and report generators.
The comprehensive doo smart event automation platform comprises the following modules and functions:
Registration and ticketing
With adaptability in mind, our experts focused on the integration possibilities of doo’s platform, building it to slot seamlessly into a client’s existing system landscape – CRM, ERP, CMS and more. doo's agile interfaces also enable the integration of event-specific components, such as apps or event platforms, even at short notice.
ELEKS established an L2 support team for doo, which is responsible for ensuring the seamless operation of the platform. The team pays extra attention to peak periods when significant events with over 50,000 potential participants are taking place. Additionally, ELEKS support experts provide assistance to the client's integration team by managing the integration of third-party services using no-code/low-code solutions.
doo successfully launched its platform to market, winning more than 1600 customers, including leading German brands and multinational corporations. The platform has proven to help doo’s corporate clients meet the increased expectations of event formats and optimise their event ROI.
In 2021, doo was included in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 list, an award that honours the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in Germany.
The breadth of knowledge and understanding that ELEKS has within its walls allows us to leverage that expertise to make superior deliverables for our customers. When you work with ELEKS, you are working with the top 1% of the aptitude and engineering excellence of the whole country.
Right from the start, we really liked ELEKS’ commitment and engagement. They came to us with their best people to try to understand our context, our business idea, and developed the first prototype with us. They were very professional and very customer oriented. I think, without ELEKS it probably would not have been possible to have such a successful product in such a short period of time.
ELEKS has been involved in the development of a number of our consumer-facing websites and mobile applications that allow our customers to easily track their shipments, get the information they need as well as stay in touch with us. We’ve appreciated the level of ELEKS’ expertise, responsiveness and attention to details.
