Classy

Classy is a great product overall. I gave it only a rating of 7/10 because its utility will vary depending on what your needs are and what kind of org you are. Also, depends on the CRM it integrates to if it does integrate. They have many different integrations. We have the Salesforce integration for Classy which has several issues. I would say their Salesforce integration is not fully matured yet.
If you do not have any integrations to worry about I would give Classy 10/10.

Poll Everywhere

The reasons to use Poll Everywhere:1. Get rid of those clickers! They eat batteries, need constant maintenance, and ofter walk off at a monetary loss. 2. The pricing model is really easy to manage, the campus/company license will pay for itself even if you only have 5-10 active users.3. Stop fighting mobile devices in your classroom and start leveraging them. Students can't mess around on social media, texting etc if they are in the PE app.Then situations where Poll Everywhere wouldn't work as well:1. Not great for multiple part, asynchronous polling, or data collection2. Areas where there is a limited or absent internet connection.3. Situations where an audience would lack basic technology such as a cell phone or laptop.

Pros

Classy

  • The Classy platform is easy to use, both for the staff and our volunteer fundraisers
  • It's easy to build a great looking fundraising page
  • Classy support (particularly chat and phone) are attentive and responsive. Every one there is smart and nice!

Poll Everywhere

  • It's deceptively simple to use. Showing how to use the features, create & modify questions, and viewing polling data, is much easier than it first seems.
  • There are a surprising amount of alternate ways to poll users and present questions in more ways than just "Question and 2-4 possible answers." It's pretty easy to customize.
  • It's very, very, very easy to use as an attendee. There's not anything complex or invasive in order to sign in and vote in polls.

Cons

Classy

  • The simplicity of Classy's campaign design editor also means it isn't as customizable as I'd like it to be. There are times when I wish I could change something that is embedded in the template.
  • Like all online platforms, there are occasional glitches that occur with Classy. For example, there have been times when our Salesforce connector pushes data in incorrectly or is missing. This is usually addressed fairly quickly.
  • One feature that is especially difficult for our organization to manage is that we always provide our donors the ability to mail in their credit card information for us to process. This only becomes an issue when we do not have an email address for the donor because Classy and Salesforce use a donors email address to distinguish users. Therefore, when we use a generic email from our organization for that donor sometimes records get crossed or edited automatically.

Poll Everywhere

  • SSO integration could be a little smoother
  • LMS grade integration requires many steps, sometimes frustrates faculty
  • New quiz/gaming feature is still not as good as Kahoot - some technical issues in presentations

Usability

Classy

Classy 9.0
Based on 1 answer
VERY easy to use, but lacks flexibility. But very easy to learn and master, even for someone with technical skills. They offer live chat which is a great help for on-demand support. At higher call volumes, you may wait 10 minutes, but I’ve never waited for more than that and the support if 90% of the time very helpful.

Classy's team was very helpful as we transitioned over, and helped us get everything set up quite easily. The few times we've had issues or questions, their online chat feature has been a quick way to get answers. On Giving Tuesday last year, the site went down, but Classy was quick with communication to its clients and had the problem resolved in about an hour. I know that if we have any problems or questions, the company and its team will be responsive and helpful. That makes a difference to me and our small team. We don't have time to troubleshoot or stay on hold for a long time waiting for support.

Alternatives Considered

Classy

We chose to go with Classy because we needed something simple to set up for peer to peer fundraising without an upfront investment fee. We didn't need customization or bells and whistles and we were able to get the fundraising site set up and running in about a week. Ultimately the hope is that we grow such that we can look at investing in a larger platform that allows for more customization and is more of a CRM database, but for now, Classy was perfect to get us off the ground.

Poll Everywhere

Other than Google Forms (which I utilize heavily, but for different reasons and during different areas) I find Poll Everywhere to be the best at what it offers and does. Options to lock questions, hide or show responses, varying questions/response types, and the ability to let users respond via text message on their phone or through the website/app increase the functionality of the program. The is also the ability to be creative and change poll/question backgrounds, colors and layouts as well as attach/embed images.

Return on Investment

Classy

  • Over the past 2 years our organization, events, and programming has grown roughly 135%. Using Classy daily helped us to achieve that.
  • The platform has helped us identify ongoing or sporadic supporters that we can engage further with to turn into top supporters.
Mark Hackett | TrustRadius Reviewer

Poll Everywhere

  • So far, the ROI is high because we utilize it frequently as an innovative way to engage students.
