"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 stages in the workflow and the ability to create rules too move tasks forward are really spectacular! If you establish a workflow taking them in account, you're going to love it. Pros Runrun.it uses the Kanban methodology as the base for its organization, being easy to understand and get used to. It allows customizing a lot of its features for your needs. Cons Our team deals with many small tasks, so the need to click a lot to create tasks, get things done, end up using too much time we could be using to work. This leads us not to input every task into the system, specially the smallest/quickest ones, and this is not good.

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.

Overall: I really love the runrun, it makes everything so much smoother in the production, i just dont know how i managed to keep tracking of such much stuff without it before. Pros: The time tracking is fenomenal, the user interface and the organisation are without a doubt the best. Some features are still chunky, but my overall expeience is really good Cons: It is really hard to maintain track of who is with each task, the calendar interface is really awkward and hard. The lack of audio feedback when playing, pausing or delivering a task is something that bothers me personally (After effects would be a good reference) because sometimes you click a task and it didnt play and you forgot to check out. A notification (5m) when you are logged but without a playing task would be good too

Overall: Runrun.it changed the way I ran my business. Now costs and staff are always a click away. Pros: Runrun.it is the ultimate tool for you to manage your company from end to end. I would say the simple and responsive interface is the biggest pro of them all. Registering users is easy, and once your company adapts to the Kanban model, everything becomes more fluid. Cons: Honestly, I've never had serious problems with the program, and the development team always brings news, such as the dark mode.

We've been using Runrun.it since 2013 here at OCTO coletivo. At that time, some alternatives were starting to show up, and the options already at the market seemed to be too heavy for our company, both finnancially and structurally. Runrun.it came with a light and new approach. I like to see the constant improvements and updates, the really good support they offer and the learning opportunities we can have through the webinars and the blog feed.

|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 really like the interactivity in real time inside the software
|It works like a corporate Facebook where everyone can keep up with what the coworker is doing
|I like to see the constant improvements and updates, the really good support they offer and the learning opportunities we can have through the webinars and the blog feed
|What I most like about Runrun.it are the many options and tools to manage all the tasks inside the software."
|Sometimes the plugins or features don't work properly
|Timer counter stops unexpectedly
|It is really hard to maintain track of who is with each task, the calendar interface is really awkward and hard
|The bad part about runrun.it is that you have to spend sometime watching the tutorials before actually use the software."
