"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.
Great experience. Smooth during the sales cycle. Connects well to other solutions, pulling in key data on prospects. Product roadmap is also exciting (i.e. prospect insights and intelligence improving over time with AI insights).
Enable your sales team with content that works. With Outreach Engage, leads are appropriately routed to reps and entered into personalized sequences that utilize proven playbooks & messaging. Help your reps more easily engage with potential buyers by orchestrating all key sales activities like email, phone calls, and social media touches.
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.

At first, Outreach can look a bit overwhelming, but once you get through some early training, it will become second nature and best friend for prospecting. We also use Outreach as our dialer. What I love most is the ability to make quality drip campaigns, email sequencing that can be combined with phone and LinkedIn messaging, along with integrating with SFDC. I'm also a big fan of using Snippets which is a great way to create short sentences or data that you want to include in emails, while not going overboard on boring templates.

Being able to prospect, contact prospects, and manage accounts and pipeline all in one solution. Having the integration with Salesforce allows for efficiency and seamless workflows within the sales organization.
- Jim H. Sales Operations Manager
Using this software cut our call volume in half, we had our WORST sales month in 2 years, we had so many problems getting set up, their software crashes, notes fail to save, hubspot integration is a joke, stand alone you lose features like deal pipeline, you can not sort by last time called, their throttles don't work as explained, cannot text, the list of cons goes on and on...

|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."
|I love how Outreach keeps me organized and I can stay on top of different email sequences while analyzing different open/respond rates
|Outreach is very simple to use and has everything you need and nothing more
|I'm interested to see how the platform transforms into a more robust solution in the future
|Of all of the different software's and products I've used while in the workforce, outreach is my favorite one
|It makes my life so much easier and helps me to be super productive every single day
|Connects well to other solutions, pulling in key data on prospects
|Product roadmap is also exciting (i.e
|prospect insights and intelligence improving over time with AI insights)."
|I have found though, that most of the time it is user error, but sometimes errors are not clear
|I don't know if its Gmail's API or on Outreach's side, but it needed a work around and was very frustrating
|Annoying to setup, difficult to train team to use extremely well, but the very WORSE part about it is how horrible their customer support and their Billing department is
|It's a tool that I'll look for in my next company or at least recommend
|If you have a large SDR and Inside Sales force, it's just silly not to invest in this technology."
