Dryfta

I can't provide a scenario where Dryfta could be well suited. I guess it's a matter of delivering what has been promised on time, and without having to invest thousands of hours in extra work, as it was in our case. If it worked properly it could be a good tool for any conference.

Omnify

Omnify is a great product as a PLM, We were able to integrate it with the ERP system that was best suited for our business. This switch from paper based DHF to electronic has made so many improvements to efficiency it cannot be understated. Just the amount of paper we no longer use each year is hard to believe.

Pros

Dryfta

  • It has a lot of functionalities (website and administration) all included in the same platform. If it worked properly, it allows you to organise a conference paper-free.
  • Help desk responds quite quickly
  • They consider making improvements when asked for.
  • It’s not too expensive.

Cons

Dryfta

  • Multilingual issues. Although it is advertised as multilingual, it didn’t really work as such. The many issues that popped up throughout the conference preparation were fixed little by little at a cost in time, from help desk emails and to struggles with the unfriendly UX.
  • Admin pages reloaded every time you clicked on a button (their developers seem to ignore Ajax technologies). It was time-consuming and required constant page searches.
  • Inflexibility in many of the supposed functionalities it offers.
  • Certificates were not modifiable nor custom when we had to send them (it was solved months after the conference finished when we were surprisingly contacted by the help desk).
  • Problems with the size of images to be displayed on the site, very small fonts and limited options to display content. We had to hire a professional developer in order to get a graphically consistent and presentable website.
  • Very poor mobile version. Too big margins, unreadable text, endless text blocks and lists, distorted pictures, etc.
  • Issues with the ordering of the authors’ names for different proposals (authorship being so important in research).
  • Fixed, inflexible fields in the contact sheets, speakers info, and so on.
  • Special character issues (due to Latin characters and other types used in linguistic research).
  • Not being able to include links in the HTML editor due to Dryfta's inadvertent decisions to block them.
  • Only one Superadmin user allowed to access the full functionalities of the platform, so we had to share it (consequently not knowing who did each action).
  • Problems with the generation of reports and the high complexity of their interface.
  • Some issues on the mandatory anonymity. The double-blind review process not fully respected due to unclear user info and options, with other issues coming up on the go such as unwanted info in automated notifications and messages in the Welcome dashboard.
  • Not being able to use the other payment methods on the platform because they were incompatible with the conference country.
  • Missing information and time wasted when creating events for sessions with info that already existed in the server that randomly failed to be selected. These issues were reported even with video proofs (help desk didn’t believe us), and were never solved. We had to repeat the same processes again and again, never knowing what was going on

Omnify

  • Inbox is flooded with "action items" that are not actually for me
  • I find the search tools can be a little cumbersome
  • I wish more items could be pinned to the home screen/ personal dashboard

It was quick, that's all we can say. Quite a few times they sorted out the problems and issues. But, sadly, sometimes their answers were useless and irritating (not addressing the problem or simply ignoring it, "passing the buck"). In some cases, they pretended the problem didn't exist and we had to send them videos as proof. No response to that.

I know we have had an issue with Omnify working on Google Chrome for almost a year, and there still has not been a resolution to the problem. I do believe this has been escalated to get a resolution with Omnify, but a solution has not been presented to us yet. It just makes utilization of links a little frustrating when Chrome is my default browser.

Omnify

One of my customers utilizes Arena Solutions as their PLM, and I find Omnify to be better. That may just because we utilize more aspects and features of Omnify than they do in Arena. They are a smaller company than we are, so I am not sure how their IT group is structured to implement widespread Business System management.

Return on Investment

Dryfta

  • The overall performance was okay in the end, but it was due to our team's commitment and effort. Without that extra work, the results would have been awful.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Omnify

  • As with many big changes in Business systems, the learning curve was steep.
  • Omnify significantly reduced the amount of paper purchased each month by the company.
  • It created many efficiencies in processing change orders.
  • We were not able integrate our electronic manufacturing execution system with our PLM and ERP.
