Omnipress, a provider of conference content solutions and services for associations and other organizations for over 40 years, launched its newest abstract and speaker management system, CATALYST® in 2016. This year, CATALYST makes its premier debut at IAEE Expo! Expo, with even more updates and ehnacements designed to make the process of managing a call for papers as simple as possible for meeting planners.
Since the 1970's, Omnipress has been helping organizations better manage their call for papers process. While it was once a completely paper-based process, the company launched its first web-based abstract management system nearly 18 years ago. In August of 2016, Omnipress introduced CATALYST, their newest abstract management system, which is being showcased for the first time here at IAEE.
An Abstract Management System Built on Best Practices
CATALYST is more than a flexible, intuitive system designed to create a better experience for submitters, reviewers and administrators. It was built using the experience and knowledge of a company that has worked with thousands of organizations on tens-of-thousands conferences. We've seen it all, and know what works best, and what doesn't. With CATALYST, meeting planners can leverage that knowledge and experience, while working with a system that can be configured to meet your conference's needs.
Additionally, every customer is assigned a dedicated project manager that sets up your CATALYST site for you, while providing ideas, best practices and guidance every step of the way.
