      SimpleScan consists of a VisualForce page allowing you to send multiple Contacts an invite to a SFDC Event. We created a Presence object that can be displayed as a QR code, then put that QR code into an email template that can be sent as an invite for all the attendees. Then the iOS app scans the QR code, gets the Presence object, and allows the user to change their status from “Invited” to “Attended”

      Why? Inviting multiple people to an Event isn't a great UX when inviting hundreds or thousands of people to an Event. Some use-cases:
      * Ticketing (be your own TicketMaster™)
      * Conference Badging (invite a few thousand friends, know when they arrived)
      * Student Attendance (who showed up for the midterm exam?)
      * Meetings (know which employees attended)
      * Inventory Management (instead of relating Presence to Contacts, related it to inventory)
      * Experiential Marketing (track audience)
      * Permitted Access (Does my employee have access to the research department?)
