More than meets the eye

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Overall Conferences IO has been a great experience. The products work as advertised, are simple to use and come with surprising flexibilities. Features like Social Q&A have revolutionized they way we collect and address feedback. Employee, customer, and supplier events have become more efficient and productive.

Pros:

From a brand and messaging perspective what I like most is the flexibility to control every aspect of the interface's look and feel. Don't like the way something looks or is worded then change it! Don't know how? Support will show you or do it for you! By the way, Conference IO's support has been outstanding, like having your own virtual team on call. From an administrative perspective what I like that it's fast and easy to configure for different customer needs and the interactivity like Social Q&A and word cloud polling provides a level of virtual interaction that is a perk with participants.

Cons:

What I like least is the same CSS file that allows the wonderful brand flexibility in the product is also tied to the administrative backend. Make a poor choice in the code and it could create an unfortunate consequence in the administrator interface. Luckily if that happens it is recoverable, but ideally the user and administrative interfaces should be independently managed.

Hi Cole, Thanks for the review! We really appreciate it and are thrilled to hear that things are going well with the product. In regards to your comments, we are working on a more intuitive, user friendly, way to customize colors within the application (without requiring CSS code) and expect it to be available pretty soon. I'm not sure exactly what types of customizations you're referring to but the new improvement will hopefully be helpful so please let us know your feedback once it's released... or of course if you need anything else in the meantime.

Easy and efficient option for engaging learners

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Using Conferences i/o has helped us to better engage our learners in large conference sessions. We've seen steady increases in the numbers of attendees responding to polls, submitting questions to speakers, and evaluating the sessions each year. It's given us better data to assess the outcomes of our programs.

Pros:

It's a very cost-effective option for building in audience polling and question & answer functionality into our live educational offerings. Staff can manage the setup and operation of the system because it's simple to use. The question and answer function is very user friendly for attendees and faculty.

Cons:

Programming the polls into presentations can be labor intensive. When we use the system for session evaluations there's a limited amount of customization that can be incorporated from session to session in our larger conferences.

Review for AONL

4.0 3 years ago

Comments: Overall, we are happy with conference i/o and continue to use them even though our costs have increased.

Pros:

Our biggest pro in using conferences i/o is the ease of use from the attendee's perspective. Attendees and presenters are always impressed at how easy it is to use and how the results display.

Cons:

Our biggest con is that we feel the need to hard-wire the presenter's laptop when using the platform, especially in settings where the attendee number is large (100+). With wifi strengths varying in conference centers and hotels, we find it necessary to use a hard wire to ensure the software works properly and in a timely fashion for presenters. This has added a significant cost for us to use the platform.

Software that is easy to set up, easy to use and fun!

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Currently, we are integrating the software with our LMS and the company is so very helpful at making sure we understand everything the software can do for us and helping us work through the pain points in our processes (which aren't issues with the software). They really go above and beyond! Highly recommend the product and the company!

Pros:

This product was designed so anyone can set it up and anyone can use it! The software is relatively simple and intuitive. As someone who designs live courses, I also really like using polling, Team Battle and Social Q&A as it makes the course more engaging and the participants have fun while learning! It also is very reasonably priced!

Cons:

I honestly can't think of a con for the product.

Great addition to my workshop

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I was looking for a way to increase engagement between attendees and speakers, and even more importantly, minimize the ability of attendees to monopolize question and answer times during sessions. The customized meeting website from Conferences i/o delivered - attendees told me they loved it because they would not be comfortable standing in front of a mic and asking questions, but loved being able to submit questions anonymously. Speakers loved it because it kept individuals from monopolizing conversations - they were able to control the questions that got asked and answered.

Pros:

I've never used an audience response system for my workshop before and was worried it would be complicated to set up and administer. This system is a breeze to set up, administer and change on the fly.

Cons:

In the mac application, it was difficult to tell if the add in was successfully downloaded for some of my presenters. I think some of that was user error/unfamiliarity with utilizing this type of software.
