"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.
PGSD's most used form is the Field Trip Form for our Transportation Department. Teachers are able to submit the form, then the form will route automatically to the various approval levels. This is very convenient for all approval levels and the Transportation Department.
PerfectForms is a feature-rich, web-based development environment - complete with pixel-perfect forms, workflow automation and powerful reporting capabilities - that lets you quickly build and deploy a wide variety of business applications, all without writing a single line of code. You can build engaging, visually rich forms, design simple or complex workflows, send automatic notifications and escalations, create impressive drill-down reports, and even integrate with external systems.
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.

My company had a lot of little workflows that couldn't be adequately captured in our core systems, so we had a lot workflows powered by passing an excel spreadsheet around, etc. PF is a solution that allows me to build a form and a workflow in just a few minutes to automate those processes. We use it for everything from reporting Safety incidents, to managing reservations for company properties, to approving IT new user access requests (access to our IT systems, which have to get approved by a LOT of people). It is used to manage some employee benefits that didn't fit our HR system. It manages customer complaints and resolutions. It manages an employee recognition system. In short, it fills a ton of gaps between our core systems, and allows us to do it in-house and quickly.

It's great. I am able to create the forms my school district needs, and PerfectForms support is always there when I need a little help.

Wished there was a better way of getting help on building a form or have a listing of various templates to use.

|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 the different levels of routing that PerfectForms can complete
|Teachers are able to submit the form, then the form will route automatically to the various approval levels
|This is very convenient for all approval levels and the Transportation Department
|Forms maintain a highly detailed audit trail of each change that occurs as they make their rounds which is very useful in terms of security
|But mostly what I like and why I went with perfectforms was for the ease of setting up and creating my database solution
|Both the forms and reports are easy to assemble and use."
|What more could you ask for
|And no they didn't pay me to write this!)
|Another limitation I came across with importing videos to be embed was limited to be under 10 minutes, however there are work around for this
|We also inspect every Fire department in the state of Mississippi and collect fire hydrant information around the state
|When I started at the company, we collected all of this information on paper
|I had previously given PerfectForms a less than stellar rating for some of those problems
|This new version seems to have solved them all, and is 100% HTML based, so no more problems with using Flash."
