"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.

Simple and efficient tool for teams administration and project portfolio management What do you like best? ResourceGuru is simple but powerful, it works for project portfolio scheduling, resources scheduling and management, and resources capacity planning, it is easy to learn and use, and it gives a clear visual view of the use of resources classifying Projects, Clients and Booker by colors, it has booking and time off management (holidays, personal and sick leaves), it can manage Clients, Projects and Resources, it integrates automatically with calendars, it has powerful reports and it has good integrations through zapier so you can incorporate it in many business case scenarios avoiding the needed to do manual data entries and decreasing the probability of errors, it gets new features constantly, it shows very interesting and motivational phrases when you use it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com. What do you dislike? All teams can see the bookings from each other (it would be great to be able to limit visibility depending on each resource or at least limit it to busy/available and not to show all the details), the price is very good but you have to pay an additional to get the reports and excel exporting capability, it has a trial but not a free plan, it could have an addon for Outlook/extension for GMAIL, it could add more customization options for example for new fields and information in booking, projects or customers, it doesn't have any translations for other languages except English.

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.

|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."
|Like the ease of colour coding everything
|Like that you can archive things
|The daily/weekly tracker is very useful and the ability to plan ahead is a godsend
|All features itry was effective and useful, I do appreciate."
|As soon as no more resources are available, the time table becomes confusing
|If someone else books your work, they have to delete or change it
|If my schedule changes and the booker is not available to change it then it causes problems on my end
|I think I'm missing the possibility to attach documents to tasks."
