Very Happy with Canapii

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: It was very good overall experience. I was able to get tech support, resources and personalized service from my contact [SENSITIVE CONTENT]. She provided exceptional service and guidance to help me get my event set up to perfection.

Pros:

Working from the back end and seeing the beautiful we page that showcased the company. It had so many features, chats, videos, messaging.

Cons:

It could have been something wrong with the software or my network but for one hour I could not log into my event. I tried using Chime and I tried using Teams to start a live session but neither worked. Some of my attendees said they had trouble logging in a they didn't know how to get on. But for the most part I knew how to navigate and was able to guide them.

Comments: The support and team behind it is great, helpful and always found solutions!

Engaging Virtual Event Platform.

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Canapii helps me network with colleagues and have productive conversations with my industry leaders through virtual events and webinars. It's a distraction-free platform that makes it easy to create, manage, and access my previously attended events, all within one simple dashboard.

Pros:

I like The main dashboard (Master Console) because it has a simple design and allows me to manage and see all the events I'm attending or hosting in one place. Also, the fixed header menu of the event page has the most needed tools and features that both attendees and hosts need to manage their profiles, find information, interact and have a successful event.

Cons:

The android mobile application needs more enhancement to deliver a better User Experience.

Tod’s review

Comments: I have used Canapii as both an attendee and an organizer. Both experiences went great!

Pros:

Canalys is an intuitive platform whereby users can navigate easily through the content and networking elements it has to offer.

Cons:

It’s always difficult to try and replicate a physical event into a virtual one. I would have loved to have some event templates to help me throughout my event planning journey.

Una experiencia satisfactoria para la interacción a distancia

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Como mencionaba más arriba, la plataforma es excelente para lograr unificar puntos de contacto con colegas y marcas, a fin de establecer mejores y estrechar lazos. Además es una excelente herramienta para lograr participar de eventos donde grandes referentes de mi industria comparten charlas, novedades, etc. Asimismo, también me ha permitido conocer nuevas marcas, nuevos proveedores, conocer tendencias del mercado y comprender mejor cómo se desarrollan los negocios en otras partes del mundo.

Pros:

La posibilidad de interactuar directamente con los participantes, la posibilidad de utilizar grupos de mensajería instantánea para compartir ideas, novedades, realizar consultas, etc. Asimismo, es bastante amigable la plataforma para lograr agendar reuniones y acceder a las mismas. Otro punto a favor es el envío de las citas una vez aceptada una reunión, lo que permite mantener una agenda ordenada.

Cons:

La pantalla principal con el listado de todas las sesiones no me parece ordenada y fácil de identificar, hubiese preferido una sección específica para esta parte, dividida por marcas o temáticas y con un listado en modo grilla calendario. Algo que podría haber mejorado la experiencia de uso como de portabilidad, hubiese sido contar con una app para dispositivos móviles que también permitiese la interacción como sucede en el sitio web.
