"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 Panopto

I’m not used to having a company bend over backwards to make things work the way I need them to. Panopto has always been right there with us. For me, this is the kind of team I want to work with.

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.

- Craig B. Assistant Director

Panopto reviews

Panopto gives us a cost-effective tool to expand the way we do e-learning.

- Dana Sanderlin, Director of Product Management, Qualcomm

Using Panopto has made information sharing much more efficient and streamlined within our organization. What used to take two to four weeks to publish now takes less than one business day.

- Minette Chan, Director of Learning Solutions at Synaptics

Panopto is quite simply one of those learning tools that once you have it you can’t live without it.

- Corer Ray, Manager of Digital Media Solutions, Wichita State University

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."

Panopto

Pros
I appreciate it for what it is
I think it could be improved, but that won't stop me from using it
Overall I liked how easy it was to record and edit the tutorial video I created
Our success manager was responsive and helpful
I believe they refined some of their support protocols based on our conversations
The most useful features in Panopto revolve around the Web recording tool
It works just as well as a software application."
Cons
It could use a more modern look and feel
The software does give our end users some trouble - but not the service or website itself
This solved our problem that Zoom presented, which was that we couldn't as easily record
The only problem I had in the beginning was navigation and figuring out how to use each tool for editing videos
It is hard to set up a new sporadic recording and there is no option to have videocall at the same time because cameras are recording."
