Benefits:

Being able to access the backend ourselves and create the pages and content we need without asking CrowdComms to do every little thing and having to wait on it. It all updates almost instantly so you can make any changes you need to- even if last minute! It also means you can do something and check it and if you don't like it, play around with it until you do - it's like having freedom! The page formats are also flexible in that if there is something you want to do but it doesn't seem to be an option, it is likely you can actually use one of the page types in a less obvious way to get what you want to achieve.

Drawbacks:

Sometimes the backend options are not obvious as to what they are or it is not clear where you should change something but a quick chat/training with CrowdComms and you are good to go!

In sum:

We ran a great awards night for one of our clients who thought it was brilliant, and there were comments from the audience that they thought it looked great on the night! It is great that your audience can engage and interact in multiple ways on the platform, and they are always surprised at this because they don't expect it for a virtual awards evening. You have the freedom to have as many pages as you wish, which many virtual platforms don't allow - they often just show a stream and a chat box. It worked so well that we are using the platform for another one of our clients awards evenings! They have been great in turnaround of the platform quickly when we have confirmed with just a couple of weeks to go before the event - it is not ideal but luckily the platform is easy enough for us to navigate that once it is up and running we can go in and add all of our pages and content in not much time at all! They are great with doing briefings and run throughs where necessary so our clients feel at ease about how it is all going to work and that it is all under control. I am certain that we will continue using it for our clients where relevant.

Benefits:

The backend CMS system was really easy to use and it was great how you could use your own designs within the platform. The gameification component was excellent and really engaged our audience.

Drawbacks:

It would be great if the polling feature could be expanded to include free text responses and in turn word clouds, but overall I have no complaints.

In sum:

Rather than postpone or cancel our annual business conference and awards event, we were able to hold both events virtually which allowed for some added extra benefits like being able to invite more people to attend and participate in our conference as well as our awards event. The ability to be able to use breakout groups allowed the attendees to network and work through tasks with colleagues (as they would in person) rather than individually which was a big bonus.

Benefits:

The software was exceptionally easy to pick up both front and back end. The people from CrowdComms who I was involved with on this project were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and responsive.

Drawbacks:

Some of the graphics need a bit of a refresh ( you can do some of this yourself), this is very minor.

Benefits:

This virtual events platform had a range of options and features that we required to run our virtual Awards night. We especially liked the networking/chat function, area for our sponsors, program guide and main event section. It was easy to use and brand. The team supporting the product were excellent and really helped to make the Awards night what we wanted in a short amount of time.

Drawbacks:

I cannot find any faults with the platform

In sum:

A great experience with VirtualCrowd who helped to deliver our virtual Awards night on their platform. Really good feedback from attendees and sponsors. Would highly recommend and would use them again for other events including conferences.

Benefits:

The backend CMS to set up the platform was very easy to use, it allows us to intuitively select the most appropriate modules to be used based on the contents we have to showcase.

Drawbacks:

In terms of data analytics, would definitely be great to collect more in-depth data such as login/log-out timings and timestamp of when attendees view the stream for us to better access accurately measure the KPI of attendance for the programmes respectively(especially so for back-to-back programmes which uses a single stream throughout).

In sum:

It was a very pleasant experience working with both [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] who was there to support and attend to queries we had during the initial stages of setting up the platform. Their instructions were clear and easy to understand and they were also very responsive even after working hours(in view of the time difference). Our first experience with using CrowdComms were very much pleasant and seamless with their help.

Benefits:

The team at VirtualCrowd was the most enjoyable part of the entire process. Having an available, flexible and knowledgeable team ready to bounce ideas off of and push the limits of the software was invaluable to my experience.

Drawbacks:

Probably the limitations of the template, I think moving forward I would be super interested in seeing how WIX or a similar web development platform can be worked into the crowdcomms set up to allow for modern and design focussed exclusive web pages.

In sum:

Extremely positive, whenever we encountered minor hiccups every method of communication was open and transparent and issues were solved in an effective and efficient manner. Will definitely be working with the team again.

Benefits:

Fast implementation, flexible platform, local Australian team with great customer service and support.

Drawbacks:

Nothing really, in the last couple of months it is evident that they have invested in added features to support virtual events.

In sum:

Thank you to the Crowdcomms team for being an awesome partner where we utilised their online event platform to host our July virtual event. The site made for a highly engaging attendee experience through the use of the Q&A functionality, live polling, push notifications and the event feed to extend the life of the event with pre and post communications. Looking forward to working with the team again on our next project!
