"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 Sched

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.

Most popular feedback for Hibox

Originally, our team was trying to "collaborate" digitally by communicating and sharing documents via email and Outlook but this was a disaster. We then tried a couple of other popular project management tools suggested to us such as Trello and Wrike. Trello was disconnected and unintuitive for us. It didn't make much sense for our specific processes to create 'boards'. Also, the inability to chat made the collaboration process feel disconnected. We might as well have been using email without real-time communication. Hibox allowed us to divvy up our team into focused streams for different parts of the project and then assign tasks right in the chat streams without having to leave the stream or platform. It's easy to make chat actionable. We previously tried Slack as well, but it felt like a constantly crowded stream with no clear goal rather than a project management tool. It was easy to lose information and difficult to figure out exactly what everyone was assigned to. It's so clear in Hitbox. Each stream has its own task list where we can get a quick look at what's due for each of our projects and who is assigned to it. There is also a master task list and task calendar view that make deadlines and assignments clear. One of our favorite features for managing tasks for projects is subtasks. We use subtasks for any long term team tasks that multiple people will be working on. Each person gets assigned to different subtasks with separate due dates and times as needed and we can keep track of where we're all at with the different parts for a project. A huge perk is the ability to instantly video chat with our team right from the platform if we need to ditch chat and have a live discussion. You wouldn't believe the time not having to open three different platforms to work together saves! If you're going to implement a digital platform for better productivity, it should be everything you need and nothing you don't - Hitbox is just that!

Sched reviews

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.

- James C. Technical Evangelist

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.

Hibox reviews

I use Hibox most of the time to set up virtual meetings whit my colleagues. It is useful because we have all the Docs and reports in the same platform.

- Walid P.

We are solving the business problem of a distributed team with similar goals, we can all connect and communicate in one large platform, and we can store information on the platform for later use.

- Peter D.

It's very ease of use, the features&functionality is all that my company needs but we faced a lot of problems in many browsers, the best browser to use is Opera (And I don't like it so much). Some problems that we faced: delay to delivery the messages, the system is a little bit slow then some competitors, the layout of the emoticons isn't so nice than competitors.To my team that had a previous experience with software, using Hibox was a lit bit frustrating. We are planning the change again.

Pros & cons

Pros
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."
Cons
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."

Hibox

Pros
It was almost "fun" and a game-like to create tasks and then complete them
What was also surprising was the search function was blazing fast, felt like it's a pretty underrated feature of Hibox
It's great how easy it is to communicate online about the topic of the day and to progress tasks that lead to the success of our overall business objectives
What we like most about Hibox is the speed of communication."
Cons
Also, the inability to chat made the collaboration process feel disconnected
We might as well have been using email without real-time communication
Originally, our team was trying to "collaborate" digitally by communicating and sharing documents via email and Outlook but this was a disaster
The right colum in the task board could be wider, or adjustable by user
Sometimes it's hard to read the information when we have too much text on the details of the task."
