"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."

Most popular feedback for Sched

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.

Most popular feedback for Wistia

great video platform for businesses. I have been using it for years now and the video display customization, the integrations into CMS tools and the quick customer service makes it a no-brainer for companies that want to use video for marketing, landing page designs and more. What makes Wistia such a great tool is its ease of integration in landing pages and the ability to swap in updated versions of videos while maintaining the same URL. The channel feature also makes it easy to pull in categories of videos as a way to display them in an attractive and easy to view way. We also embed those channel page designs into our website which makes it so much easier to swap in videos, organize them and create an overall beautiful presentation.

Sched reviews

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!

- Heather B. Producer, Lit Crawl Portland

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.

- James C. Technical Evangelist

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.

Wistia reviews

Wistia is exceptionally simple to use. It has helped us organize our video content, which was a huge mess before we used Wistia. The analytics on Wistia is second to none. It even tracks the company names of people who view videos and other exceptional data. Embedding it on your website is simple and enriches the page with highly beneficial SEO.

- Jesse F. Digital Marketing Manager

I like Wistia because of its range of content support. I love the analytics, the ability to replace media and build upon its stats and it makes sharing video content easy. There are plenty of new things to learn that I am not even fully immersed in all of the features and things that I know its capable of. I love their resources as well and their self-produced content.

- Gabriela E. Video Editor

As a Creative Producer, I love using Wistia to send videos to my clients. The interface looks slick, and I can use the replace function to keep on top of versions.

Pros & cons

Sched

Pros
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."
Cons
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."

Wistia

Pros
There are many things to love about Wistia
Some of the key things that I liked most are
The ability to replace a video without having to update all the locations it exists
This option is awesome because you have the choice to keep the statistics or start fresh
I like that we can use Wistia to share videos not only internally, but with our external customers as well
I also like the playback functions for the videos
Wistia was a great piece of software that let us store our videos for easy sharing with external parties."
Cons
Video organization and seo setup can be confusing
I don't like how you have to pay for integration
It makes it hard to tell how it will integrate with other software before we pony up money for it
The limited file size can be irksome, as we always record our videos in RAW
So, we always have to convert and compress our footage before we can put it on Wistia
No options to edit or filter video recordings."
