PSAV, an industry heavyweight in audiovisual and event technology services, is expanding its event offerings with the acquisition of Concise, an interactive live event software application developer.

Concise has served the live event industry for more than 20 years and has developed a proprietary advanced software platform that enables event planners to deliver more engaging experiences and capture actionable event intelligence. Its primary product, Chime, is a “second-screen event application” with broad functionality to help planners and companies stage interactive, engaging events. Additional capabilities include note-taking, polling, surveying, Q&A, dynamic personalized agendas, collaboration tools and a document library.

Concise’s Chime Check-In solution provides event planners with an on-site check-in app.

“We’re thrilled to partner with industry veterans who have developed incredible event application products with strong customer loyalty,” said Mike McIlwain, president and CEO for PSAV.

“Concise will help us address our customers’ continued desire to leverage technology to improve audience engagement and event execution with a clear return on investment,” he added.

Concise is headquartered in London, U.K. and serves clients globally from six offices on four continents. Phil O’Brien, Simon Mannes and James Shepheard-Walwyn will continue to lead Concise’s team of more than 60 project managers, software engineers, designers, sales managers and technicians.
