What truly sets Padgett apart is that, unlike many vendors, we never use freelance contractors to implement our ARS at an event. Our staff includes full-time project managers who travel to event sites to oversee every aspect of ARS implementation and execution, including equipment installation and testing, software programming, pre-event rehearsal, and facilitation of Q&A sessions after presentations.

Our service is built around engaging audience members using advanced handheld keypad systems. To suit nearly any application, we offer four state-of-the-art options, including:

  • The small and easy-to-use Padgett Mini
  • The popular Padgett Worldwide
  • The Versatile Padgett Plus

Our devices operate on secure radio frequencies, eliminating concerns about signal loss and unsecured data. In addition to a variety of keypad choices, Padgett offers many options for audience interaction, including game show formats, question-and-answer formats, secure voting formats, and more. We also provide an array of creative and entertaining display options, and all data is instantly archived and securely stored for easy access later.
