The best meetings organisation platform as of 06/2018

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: Great meetings organisation platform

Pros:

I have worked with dozens of meetings organisation platforms since 2012 and must say that Converve is the best solution if you need something unique and highly customizable for your event. In addition the developers are very attentive and available. I hope that Converve team will be able to keep the things rolling and we will see the perfect platform quite soon.

Cons:

The possibility of having a template that you can apply to the same type of events during the year is missing. As of now, I need to spend a lot of time to fine tune the settings every time I would like to launch the new event.

Vladimir, Thanks your review! To balance between software tailored for a specific event and a standard solution is always a challenge. We are working on a template solution you can reuse for event series.

This tool is amazing, just like the Converve team!

5.0 7 years ago

Comments: This software compiled all our needs in a user friendly tool

Pros:

This online B2B tool has been customized to our methodology and requirements. It is user friendly and includes all the functionalities we currently need to successfully organize a B2B event (application of companies, selection of companies, registration, B2B, reporting, communication and marketing functionalities are all included). The team is solution oriented, flexible and delivers on commitments.

Cons:

We have not yet tested the tool in the least developed countries or places with unreliable Wifi access, but I am certain that the Converve team could help finding a plan B if this occurs.

Probably OK for one-to-one networking, but not for team matchmaking

2.0 4 years ago

Comments: Overall, it's a quite basic platform... with a lot of UX improvement needed and more integrations (didn't find google calendar integration).

Pros:

Quite basic features but still ok to network

Cons:

UX is quite bad: You see your agenda, but then you can't click on each item. You need to go to your whole agenda view, choose the day, then scroll down to find the meeting you planned. The time is always in one timezone and doesn't adapt to each users (I missed some calls because the other person didn't realize it wasn't her timezone in the website) When you are a team, if a team member sends a message to someone, when this person replies, the replies are sent to the "team leader" only and not to the person who initiated the discussion. Which is really bad when you want to dispatch the tasks within a team...

Unfortunately the reviewer has decided to keep their contact information hidden, so we can only guess in which event they were participating. Regarding the feedback: - It is possible to see the time zone and relative time for your meeting partner when requesting a meeting and also in your calendar. - It is the organizer's decision whether messaging is allowed between all users, or only specific users. In this case, each company had an 'admin' who was responsible for all communication with users from that company. We are sorry that this experience was frustrating, but this was not a result of the software, but rather the configuration for this particular event. Please also understand that messaging is subject to GDPR-regulations. - Accessing meetings directly off the dashboard is also possible. We haven't been made aware of issues with regards to navigating personal schedules in the past, but we appreciate this feedback as we are always looking to improve.

Great platform for B2B meetings

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Our experience has been hugely positive. We found Converve to be flexible and extremely helpful and the software delivery is first class.

Pros:

The flexibility that the platform offers, giving delegates the option to choose and block their appointment slots. The layout is clean, attractive, professional and easy to use with the options of building different tabs if required. The profile matching system works really well and all our delegates have been delighted with the events we have conducted with Converve.

Cons:

The online meeting software does not work efficiently with delegates form China?

Well run, easy to customize and user-friendly software

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: We found the staff very helpful and available. They were eager to help us and respond to our needs. The Hosted Buyer program we ran included hundreds of participants from dozens of product categories over a 3-day event, and the software had no trouble finding matches, arranging meetings and changing schedules. Thank you very much!

Pros:

The interface was very simple and took little time to learn for participants. The communication tools were clear, and most importantly, the quality of B2B matches was so high it was remarked on by numerous participants.

Cons:

It did require some time to learn for the moderator, and since the software is so customizable, they can't really do a one-size-fits-all instruction manual. This meant a lot of training at the beginning.
