Boston startup Attend­ware, which offers soft­ware for event check-​​in and auto-​​generated name tag printing, on Tuesday said it has raised a $1 mil­lion Series A round from .406 Ven­tures of Boston.

Attendware’s product was ini­tially devel­oped at North­eastern Uni­ver­sity last August. That’s where co-​​founder Greg Skloot headed the uni­ver­sity Entre­pre­neurs Club — and found short­com­ings in cur­rent event man­age­ment software.

Attendware’s product “enables event orga­nizers to effort­lessly cap­ture atten­dance data and easily report on key met­rics to mea­sure event suc­cess,” according to a news release. Attend­ware also auto­mates name tag printing and other time-​​­consuming aspects of events, the com­pany says.

The soft­ware “turns any laptop or tablet into a check-​​­in kiosk” that’s used to take atten­dance, auto-​​generate name tags, send text alerts for VIP arrivals and manage real-​​­time attendee data, Attend­ware says.

The startup reports having 10 cus­tomers — with North­eastern Uni­ver­sity among them — who have used the soft­ware to auto­print name tags for tens of thou­sands of atten­dees at events.
