"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 Yodeck

I enjoy how highly-customisable this platform is for existing Raspberry Pi setups. For example, if you want to display a web page which requires a user login, you can write an automation script which guides the device through the login pages.

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.

Yodeck reviews

I am extremely satisfied with Yodeck as both a digital signage and management platform.

- Lawrence W. Consultant

The deployment has been easy. The hardware is cheap. We've had much higher user adoption, and I've enjoyed administering it. It's been easy to experiment and make changes. My team has truly loved using YoDeck

- Jonathan L. Director of Classroom & Technology Solutions

Super easy interface with lots of features, but not at all complicated.

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."

Yodeck

Pros
We are happy to now not only be able to use the various possibilities ourselves, but also to have found an extremely interesting new product for our customers
You are able to display awesome menus, directions and sale items
This is same technologies used by major companies and best of all you can maintain your screens from the anywhere
It's powerful and has a ton of features that other software like this designed to run on the Raspberry Pi does not have
Amazing software that I've already recommended to a colleague."
Cons
Occasionally we get messages about the Yodeck losing connection, but that is likely due more to the Raspberry Pi than the software
The initial set up was a little confusing - linking the playlist to the layout didn't feel intiuitive
Sometimes getting the alignment of various media on the screen is frustrating and there are times that what is on your screen is not pushed onto the display in the exact same manner
Probably made some changes on schedules area
In some cases it may be misleading (at least with my experience)."
