"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.
The flexible schedule manager for your unique event. Build, customize, and manage your event schedule in one organized place. Teams can collaborate and work together remotely and in real-time. Engage your attendees and empower your speakers with an interactive experience and tools. Market and grow your event via our web and native apps, or embed it directly in your own website.
The Outlook integration is phenomenal! Not only the integration with the groupware itself, but also that it integrates into the infrastructure we already have in place. Another plus is that the program doesn't force you to adopt a formal project framework. It lets you use just the features you need, and you can work in a way that adjust to existing processes. I found their staff particularly helpful. The consultants really listen to their clients and provide hands on support as needed.
InLoox now! Web App is the online project management platform designed for personal task management as well as collaborative project management. It features classical project management capabilities like Gantt chart planning, resource allocation & workload management, time tracking and budgeting, and document management, and pairs them with flexible task management in Kanban boards. InLoox now! Web App facilitates collaboration among teams with the InLoox Chat, the project notes function, the project history, and email notifications. This helps keeping everyone on the team up to date and prevents missing due dates or changes in the project. For temporary project team members, the role of contributor is ideal. Otherwise, user-based and role-based permissions ensure clearly defined responsibilities and prevent unauthorized access to sensitive date.
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.

Out of all the PM solutions we tested, InLoox was the most stable and easy to use. Also, the seamless Outlook integration really makes switching to InLoox easy. Pros: - great value for money - ideal for teams that are already using Outlook and use email to communicate - we really like that you can attach emails and files to tasks/projects and that is then indicated in the email - you never lose track of documents - our developers like the Gantt chart, the marketing guys like the mind mapping feature - easy implementation and regular updates - super friendly and helpful support team Cons: - The list of functions needs to be improved - We'd love to see risk management implemented - More help/tutorial videos would be great, though customer support is really excellent

InLoox PM is a project management software that offers a lot of features, but is still easy to use. The Outlook integretation has been mentioned a lot in other reviews, and it really is one of it's strongest point. Our company has been using Outlook ever since, which is why InLoox was immediately familar to the team.

We had been working with a different tool before but weren't happy with it. We were looking for a project tool that would fit into the software infrastructure we were already using, that included features that cover the entire project cycle and is still easy to use. After testing quite a few options we chose InLoox because it integrates perfectly with Outlook and for its user-friendly interface. Instead of training my team on how to use the software they were able to work with the tool immediately.

|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."
|Ease of setup
|Ease of use

|Lots of functions that take a while to get familar with
|No real risk management feature
|The list of functions needs to be improved.
