Posted by on .

Once again, ATE Central and the American Association of Community Colleges are pleased to announce the release of this year’s ATE PI Conference mobile app! The 2017 app and companion website are designed to help attendees make the most of their conference experience. Conference participants can use their phone, tablet, or Internet browser to create a personal schedule, stay up-to-date with the agenda and speaker lineup, search the attendee directory, and more! The app is available for iPhone or iPad and Android devices. To download the app, search the app store for "ATE PI 2017" or simply follow the appropriate link from a mobile device.

Each year, ATE Central gathers feedback and usage data about the app through surveys and data collected by the app itself.  A review of last year’s data found that 59% of invited attendees downloaded the meeting app. This finding reflected an increase from the previous three years where 56%, 49%, and 47% downloaded the app in 2015, 2014, and 2013, respectively.  Interestingly, the primary reasons why individuals do not download the app has changed over time. In 2011 for example, 46% of individuals did not download the app because they did not have the supporting devices, whereas, in 2015 that number had dropped to 8%. Moreover, only 8% of individuals indicated that they did not download the app because of lack of awareness. While a sizable portion of the population indicated that they did not download the app because they prefer printed materials (46%) the increase usage of the app has reduced printing costs for the sponsors of the PI Conference. The app is well regarded by those who use it - 97% of those respondents who used the app deemed the quality to be good, very good, or excellent.

There’s a lot you can do with the app but we always look for ways to make it better. We’d love to get your feedback and we’re happy to answer any questions or help out if you’re having any problems logging in or using the app. Please don’t hesitate to contact staff at ATE Central at or stop by our booth (#002) at any one of the showcase sessions!
