About Akkroo

Akkroo (an Integrate company) is a vibrant and fast paced technology scale-up, addressing the broken methods around collecting and processing leads from events. We are the forerunners of Event Lead Capture, offering a quality solution that connects events, sales and marketing for businesses across the UK, US and Europe.

Our heavily customisable app and web-based software helps businesses collect and process leads at any event you might have used paper forms at in the past.

Akkroo works on tablets, mobile and the web, online and offline. We strip away old, inefficient and non-accountable paper-based processes, replacing them with reliable, enjoyable, modern lead collection software.
