The CDS API Bridge and our custom integrations with the most popular membership and CRM software keep your information aligned in real-time.

CDS X•Press Check-In is the fastest way to get attendees through registration and into your event.
In addition to the traditional scanning of an email or web page printout at check-in kiosks, advance registrants can now cruise through check-in by scanning their QR code directly from their smart phone. CDS’ X•Press Check-In also provides Wallet support.
Attendees have the option to enter their badge ID sent to them with their confirmation, or to look themselves up in the registration system using their contact information. Regardless of what technology your attendees prefer, CDS has an X•Press Check-In solution.
- Smart Phones & Tablets – QR codes sent via email or in the mobile registration website
- Wallet/PassWallet – Access QR codes with event info through Apple Wallet or PassWallet by Android
- Email confirmations include both the attendee’s QR code and badge ID
- Hard copy printouts with QR codes can be scanned at check-in stations
- Attendees can look themselves up on the registration website using their contact info
The most tangible part of registration is the badge.
Badges are the accessory worn by all attendees. Configurations, styles and possibilities with CDS badges are nearly unlimited. Badges can be mailed or printed onsite using pre-printed stock or high quality color printers. Green alternatives for stock and printer cartridges are available.

The Tracker smartphone app provides session tracking, access control, and validation all in one integrated package. Online or offline, Tracker keeps your event moving smoothly.
Select a session from the live event list and start checking-in attendees—it’s that easy. A simple scan of the badge QR code uploads the attendee information to the event database and updates session reporting.
Validate registered attendees as they check-in to sessions with Tracker Access Control. Using the live session roster, attendees are quickly confirmed as being eligible or not as they enter sessions. Validation accurately tracks attendance for sessions that were purchased individually or as part of a bundle.
- Live sync and counts
- Easy setup
- Rosters and validation
- Detailed reporting
- Carrier, wifi and offline modes
