DigiReg is a digital registration platform, providing online registration for your users. There are a variety of use cases where DigiReg plays an important and integrated part.
DigiReg was originally designed to capture student attendance at classes, lectures, and seminars in higher education. This was aimed at providing support rather than taking punitive action against absentees.
DigiReg enables the university or college to identify students who are not attending sessions and who might be in need of extra support to prevent them dropping out or potentially developing mental health problems as a result of the pressures of a new environment and work patterns. By monitoring attendance, it is possible for student support staff to see an overall picture of a student’s academic journey, and therefore provide early intervention before the problem escalates.
A student dropping out also has a significant financial impact on both the student and the college or university. Just one student dropping out could potentially result in the loss of £27,000 in tuition fees. Joining the DigiReg platform is a small investment to prevent such an occurrence.
A class of 200 students can register in less than a minute, either by scanning a QR code, entering a unique session code into the website, or by SMS*. There are no hardware purchases required, as the codes can be shown on the projector, written on the board, printed out, or, for smaller classes, displayed on the presenter's tablet or smartphone. Students can also track their own attendance and inform their lecturer of any planned absence.
If a student is absent for a given number of sessions, the system logs this for follow-up with the student support coordinators. This allows emails to be sent, and replies to be automatically logged, so that any member of the student support team can monitor this correspondence.

DigiReg supports registration for conference seminars. If it is important, or even just interesting, to know who attended which seminar, DigiReg makes it a two click operation. It is that simple.
DigiReg can also work for trade shows where the exhibitors want to gather customer details. While getting people to fill out forms is doable, it is time consuming and frustrating for the user to keep passing details. There are systems where exhibitors scan a barcode from the user and retrieve their details at a later date, but this is frustrating as all exhibitors want to do is to try and scan visitors' barcode. They literally jump out and scan passes, often worn as ID cards around the neck, before visitors knew what was happening. With GDPR, it really should be a consent based approach. By giving the power to the visitors, they choose what codes they scan, or enter, or sms. At the end of the day, the exhibitors get a list of customers who have registered for their sessions.
It is quick, easy and most of all Complient with GDPR. Since the visitor has opted in, they are consenting to the exhibitor having and processing their data. They can also revoke that consent during the day if they change their mind.
