Bing Pulse is a real-time viewer polling platform which allows broadcasters, organizers and other organizations to enable the conversation and allow their viewers and customers to be heard. Bing Pulse was used to manage over managing 35 million votes for events since its launch last year. Today, Microsoft announced the launch of Bing Pulse 2.0 beta.
Bing Pulse 2.0 beta includes an easy-to-use, self-service version of this voting technology to event planners, producers and participants of any size gathering. It will be available for free during initial phase.
Bing Pulse 2.0 beta features a highly flexible producer dashboard that puts the organizer in control of the experience by allowing them to easily set up, customize and control a Bing Pulse. This includes allowing their audience to provide real-time feedback throughout the event, pushing poll questions to the audience at any time, and customizing the look-and-feel of a Bing Pulse, including integration of social media handles or hashtags, to map back to their brand. The producer also has the ability to immediately view results in easy-to-digest graphics, and to share these results in real-time by displaying them live on in-room or on-air screens, integrating them into video feeds, and embedding them on their web site. Alternatively, organizers may choose to analyze insights and share them later.
