"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."Sir Richard Branson
My first experience with Sched was as a speaker on a conference event being organized by our foreign collaborators. As my first foreign speaking engagement, I was naturally extremely nervous, but Sched made collaborating with the organizers so easy and that I felt very much at ease and ended up delivering an exceptional session. After that experience, I recommended trying Sched for our own subsequent conference events.

Sharefile is a cloud-hosted file server at its most basic level that replaces the need to host one within a workplace or business. It also allows you to offer download links to consumers to upload or download specific files, provided you have the proper rights. Because it is hosted offshore, it has the advantage of not requiring the office to operate servers or an Infrastructure rack.
Take productivity to the next level with ShareFile. Securely send, share, get feedback, approvals and even e-signatures on any file, fast. Business-class file sharing meets real-time collaboration to accelerate productivity with automated workflows you customize and control. Give real-time feedback, request approvals, co-edit-even get legally binding e-signatures seamlessly-on any device. Plus, with real-time tracking, you always know exactly where things stand.

Communication is the main problem that Sched solves. It's an at-a-glance snapshot of an entire evening that easily drills down into specifics. It invites interaction, so that's another communication problem solved/helped. I couldn't be more thrilled to have Sched working on my event's behalf. Thank you!

We used to publish our own website with conference info; it had the basic info, but it was hard to keep the pieces consistent. Now we link to the Sched site from our event page and attendees find everything there. Speakers can post their pix and handouts and complete/update their profiles and send e-mail blasts to all who signed up for their workshop. We got good reporting and from it (and Google Analytics) see a high engagement rate (not just page views; over half set up accounts and created a personal schedule). This is all from their lowest service level/tier; higher levels integrate more with registration/payment etc., but we already have an online store and used it for front-end registration.

It wasn't too difficult to get everything set up, but we needed a human to help us select the right package to purchase. It was way too difficult reaching someone and we were actually told that no one could assist us for at least another week because that department was going to a conference.

Overall I liked it as it solves the purpose and all my documents are secure.

Well, after around 10 years of using Sharefile without any issues and only using customer support about 2-3 times we were told that the charges would be basically multiplying by ten times the amount and if we didn't like it, TOO BAD!!!! No negotiation, no warning period (don't consider a 30-60 window after being told you're screwed to quit service or pay a valid warning), no understanding, just "do this or else... don't like it, we don't care.... see ya later scrub." Very unprofessional and in my opinion can and maybe will break your company. With a marketing plan/ploy like that where you corner customers and then on top of that don't care about them in the slightest sense you are heading for disaster.

Easy to navigate UI. ShareFile has an add-on that integrates into standard Outlook email platform. The add-on allows you to email large files using a secure third party FTP, where sensitive documents can only be accessed by permitted parties. It's easy to set permissions if you allow the document to be shared with others. Works well for cloud sharing documents and files where collaboration is needed. You can set a time duration for files to automatically delete themselves, so that makes managing storage capacity easier.

|Love the easiness of selecting which sessions I wanted to attend
|It then stored it and made it super easy for me to know exactly where to go
|My district uses Sched to schedule our entire district professional training
|This is fabulous I love that it emails me my schedule and I can access it all day as I attend trainings
|I also love the ability to email attendees from the platform and how they also get a daily reminder
|It is also wonderful how we can personalize the system with our own branding and images
|This was a perfect option for our needs this year, and now that we know more about how it can be used, it will be used more often for our future conference needs."
|We have received many complaints within 24 hours of launching the service
|The lack of Spanish interface, because we are in Peru
|It is difficult to find your meeting sometimes
|There are so many meetings scheduled
|Small landing/home page with limited customization."
|It is nice how you can see who has opened the attachments and when they opened them
|It is also nice that the links expire for security purposes
|I like that you can share documents and choose who has access to them
|I like how easy it is to upload, move and share files
|I also like how I can grant permissions to people to see some files but not others in the same folders
|The encryption that they add to each files that are sent out giving peace of mind for anyone that using their service, because we know, it will be safe and secure."
|Difficulty getting the branding loaded
|It's DEFINATELY a coding problem and it took 3 different tech people to finally get it right, but this was a minor annoyance comp[ared to others
|I dislike the outlook extension for Sharefile
|Sometimes the transferring takes lot of time
|It is boring to wait until the transferring is complete
|Sometimes documents that were intact were showing up as corrupted and had to be forced to reload
|Similar issues on the desktop app but nothing insurmountable."
