Tips for Using Voting Systems in Events

Any event owes its success to meaningful audience engagement. To keep the audience attentive and
evoke responses from them, there are software technologies available. They are the audience response systems which are interactive devices that come be used with your PowerPoint presentations. Getting a feedback from the audience is important as the presenter gets to know what their views.

The traditional method to know the feedback of the audience is by way of showing their hands or raising their hands. But with technological advancement, we have audience response systems which use devices that come in a keypad form. They come with many interactive features like:

  •  Audience can answer questions digitally
  • Audience can also use it audibly through means of a built-in microphone in the keypad
  • They can also convey ideas by way of sending as text or messages to the presenter 

Voting Systems in Events

While conducting an event, the presenter would like to know the response of the group by conducting a vote. By using electronic voting systems, the presenter can get the responses from the audience. By
asking a series of questions through PowerPoint slides, the audience can respond by clicking a button on their keypad.

It is the best way to gauge the opinions of the group. Be it a business, academic, corporate or marketing group event, you can collect responses effectively through use of voting devices available for rent or purchase.

For effective polling that enables the delegates in business or corporate to cast votes, voting devices
come in the form of handy credit card sized keypads. Audience can cast votes quickly by pressing the buttons on it. The responses correspond to the questions asked and these responses quickly reach the
receiver device. The responses are collated and presented immediately in the form of a chart or graph
on the PowerPoint screen.

This helps in saving time and decisions are made fast while casting votes this way. It paves way to
express honest views in a democratic manner. Audience opinions are sorted out efficiently and analyzed quickly.

In corporate training sessions, trainees are engaged through audience response system by giving
feedback on questions raised or asked by the trainer. It helps improve the training atmosphere by
engaging the trainees in an interesting way rather than making it a tedious process.

Versatility of electronic voting systems

These systems can be used in any kind of environment. This helps to gather opinions and also to know how much the audiences have understood your message. The wireless audience response systems with electronic voting systems are easy to set up in events when compared to wired products. Polling speeds are fast and accurate.

Mobile devices as voting system

Of late, the audience response industry has come up with developments, where internet enabled
devices like laptops, tablets, and smartphones can be used as voting solutions.

Events that require voting systems

o Shareholder and delegate meetings

o Group scenarios

o Conferences, seminars

o Political polling

o Employee and customer surveys

o Training sessions

o Market research

o Classroom activities

o Risk assessment workshops

o Exhibitions

o T.V game shows

Yet another free service for Android developers

Google Cloud Messaging is a great way for developers to manage legitimate applications - but the service has proved to be an unwitting accomplice to cybercrime. Kaspersky Lab has detected several popular malicious programmes which use GCM as a cheap and easy communication channel with the crooks which created them, says a company statement.Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) allows application developers to communicate with programs installed on the users’ smartphones and tablet. They can send a range of information, from ordinary notifications to commands for the applications themselves. The service is used for locating stolen phones, remotely configuring phone settings, mailing messages about new game levels or goods and more.This service was developed to make it easier for Android-based app developers to support programs downloaded and installed on users’ devices. Thanks to Google Cloud Messaging (GCM), the authors of the programs do not need to build their own IT infrastructure to do this. However, GCM has its attractions for cybercriminals, who have started to use it to replace Command and Control servers. This makes it quicker and cheaper to manage infected Android devices, simply by registering on the Google service.
Kaspersky Lab specialists have detected several samples of dangerous malware targeting Android owners which use GCM to receive commands from the fraudsters. For example, Trojan-SMS.AndroidOS.FakeInst.a can send text messages to premium numbers and delete incoming messages, or create shortcuts to malicious sites and show notifications containing adverts of other malicious programs that are distributed in the guise of useful applications or games. Trojan-SMS.AndroidOS.OpFake.a, in addition to sending text messages to premium numbers, can steal messages and contacts, delete incoming messages and commit a host of other crimes.Roman Unuchek, Senior Malware Analyst at Kaspersky Lab is not surprised by the appearance of malicious programs that use the Google service. He said: “It would be strange if virus writers were not taking advantage of the opportunities offered by this service. At present, there is not much mobile malware using GCM, but some of the programs are already quite popular. They are widespread in some parts of Western Europe, the CIS and Asia. The only way to block these channels of communication between the virus writers and their malware is to block the accounts of those developers whose IDs are used when registering malicious programme. We have informed Google about the detected GCM-ID which are used in malware".

Kaspersky Lab is the world’s largest privately held vendor of endpoint protection solutions. The company is ranked among the world’s top four vendors of security solutions for endpoint users*. Throughout its more than 15-year history Kaspersky Lab has remained an innovator in IT security and provides effective digital security solutions for large enterprises, SMBs and consumers. Kaspersky Lab, with its holding company registered in the United Kingdom, currently operates in almost 200 countries and territories across the globe, providing protection for over 300 million users worldwide.
