eTouches seems to be well positioned to serve those needing event registration for small groups up to large conventions. Events with multiple sessions are very well organized and allows the planners to monitor registration and attendance with ease. One issue we have run into is the ability to give a discount to a specific registrant who signs up a group of individuals. We continue to work for a solution to this.

Slido is great to use for live meetings, whether in person or via video conference; we mostly use this for Zoom meetings. You can use the different features at different times in your meeting: I love to start our All Hands meetings with a word cloud or a poll of some kind, and as people are joining via zoom it gets people feeling excited and connected even before we've started. It also gives us something fun to talk about while we're waiting for everyone to arrive and for the meeting to start. You can do a poll halfway through to keep people engaged, and then a poll at the end to see how you did, or maybe use the Q&A to see what questions come up without having the awkward zoom silence when you ask if anyone has any questions. I don't think this is helpful in smaller meetings, where people likely feel more comfortable interacting directly and asking questions verbally.

Pros
Aventri (formerly etouches)
  • Manages class size limits very well.
  • Provides information for hotel booking and transfers so that all this information is in one record.
  • Unlimited number of pages for the website is invaluable - we looked at other programs with only 4 pages for the website and that just isn't enough for our clients.

  • Its integration with various Webex apps like Webex Meetings and Webex Webinars and leading softwares like Zoom and Google Slides
  • Its simple user interface and eye-catching graphics
  • The detailed analytics it provides of the polls and surveys conducted and the ability of exporting them
  • The ability of integrating live video into Slido so participants dont have to switch tabs
  • Participants can ask questions anonymously or with their names without having to unmute themselves and disturbing the flow of the meeting

Cons
Aventri (formerly etouches)

  • Sometimes the code would break and take a while to fix (adding images, extra text)
  • Not intuitive for users

  • Pricing Model - free version is quite limited and the package prices can be more attractive for SME companies
  • User Interface Complexity - the UX in the backend is good, but sometimes I am confused to find a specific function
  • Real time translation would be great in terms of accessibility

Slido has one of the most intuitive Dashboards I've ever seen. It's easy to use and easy to manage. I've extensively used Polls and Quizzes and it works like a charm, every time.

Support Rating
Aventri (formerly etouches)
I had a few issues while onsite (over the weekend). The support information given to me was incorrect and I had a hard time tracking down how to get assistance while onsite (on a weekend). When you are onsite, issues are usually heightened and need an immediate response, and I didn't get that.

The communication I've had directly from Slido was very professional and sets an excellent impression for the tone of the company.

We loved CVENT and DoubleDutch, but it was much easier to have all the modules we needed in one platform, which happened to be Aventri.

It's as simple as just Microsoft Word Visual Basic. We used to use that. Just a lot more cumbersome with the program and setup. Can be buggy depending on the browser operating system that you're running it on. Nothing specific for surveys. This was the first one we got that's officially for a survey that I know of. I've been there for about five years.
