"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."

Most popular feedback for Localist

Our previous website calendar system consisted of our staff manually entering events when the public would email them to us. Even with copy/pasting each field, it would take up some time to process a lot of requests. Now, we can approve or deny events with the click of a button and the public takes the time to format the events themselves. This also allows for required fields so we don't receive events with missing information.

Most popular feedback for Mediasite

My favorite things about the Mediasite video platform are the split-screen viewers where presentation can be on a 2nd panel (with the ability to select focus) as well as the internal video editor.

Localist reviews

We looked at many different event software solutions before deciding on Localist. It's a great product, and the customer service is unparalleled.

- Nicky E. Associate Director of Digital Media

I'm very familiar with Localist after having used it for a few years so I'm reluctant to change to a different email merge system but I do find it to be user-friendly and easy to introduce people to.

- Raymond R. Web Designer

In our particular application, there just isn't very much traffic. The idea of a dedicated event calendar can feel like too much when everyone already uses their own CRM or email lists to communicate about events. More flexible integrations would be a nice feature, like if Localist could pull in events automatically from third-party CRMs. Customizeable reminder messages and follow-up messaging would also add value.

Mediasite reviews

My first task in my original position was to migrate content from mediasite to our new server, it took about 2 weeks to learn how to find "hidden" names in order to sort and rename the videos for the upload. If they have made major changes to the platform, I would be interested in hearing what they've done as the quality was good for the time

- Paul Q. Assistant Manager of Educational Technology

Once this software is set up it is really problem free. It isn't a hassle to use it and it gets the job done.

- Sasheena D. Communications officer

My overall experience has been extremely favorable.

- Paul J. Program Director

Pros & cons

Localist

Pros
The solution is very flexible to our needs and the branding capabilities are impressive
The ease of use and empowerment of users to submit events
Localist is very easy to setup and administer and is a very powerful calendar platform to help manage and promote our many events on campus
Administrators love the ease of setup, reporting and the configuration flexibility."
Cons
The webinar on Channels was so confusing that it took me months to figure out what they were talking about
Again, lots of learn-by-doing
We also found an issue with users being able to create their own avatar, in some cases the avatar could be offensive and there is no way to easily "report" that to the calendar admins
Support has been generally terrible
Anything outside of the basic functionality is simply not supported and they have been unwilling to implement ANY requests that we've made
On several occasions the answers provided by support have been blatantly wrong and only through our own channels have we been able to fix problems that the vendor created."

Mediasite

Pros
The platform is easy to use and provides a simple way to produce recorded presentations without having to have a full video crew.Easy to use
Customer support is amazing! Always answer the phone and go out of their way to help.Capture cart in the classroom was nice, but clunky in the debate of cloud/on-site storage the on-site means you have full control of data
Cons
I have no complaints about this softwarePrice is very expensive
But you get what you pay for
You are really paying for the mediasite experience and the customer support
The recorders themselves are just customized windows PC's.automatic names were so difficult to navigate that it seemed like they were designed to make switching away more difficult
