Overall Satisfaction with Attendify

Attendify started out being used by just my department, Enrollment Services, back in Fall 2020. Like many organizations, it came onto our radar when we were in the midst of pivoting all of our on-campus events to virtual experiences. This April, I will have used it for three (3) different events on six (6) separate occasions. I use it to deliver engaging content and provide an interactive experience for high school students and others considering a transfer to our institution. The Alumni and Parent Relations office at the university also decided to use it for their own virtual event when they had heard how successful it was for me. It helps us still reach prospective students (maybe even more now then before) to try to showcase the university from the comfort of their own home.
  • The Attendify platform provides a seamless user experience by utilizing a web-based and mobile app platform simultaneously. This creates a dual-screen experience, which is helpful since we already know people are on their smartphones anyways.
  • The ability to embed Zoom, YouTube or Vimeo videos is a huge win! It's clean and admin friendly.
  • The scheduled push notifications are very helpful to notify attendees on both mobile and the web-based portal of important info at strategic times.
  • It would be helpful for Attendify to provide more filter options in the attendees view of the admin portal. This would allow ease of filtering the various columns and also being able to export the list into a .xls or .csv would be great.
  • It would be neat if Attendify could create a feature for attendees that allowed them to be automatically redirected to the next scheduled session on the Event Schedule. This would be an opt in/out feature, but the benefits would be attendees feeling like it's more of a Netflix watch party.
  • I'd like to see the Push Notifications feature expanded to allow hyperlinks to either internal or external web pages.
  • If we didn't use Attendify, we'd have lame events only utilizing Zoom or Webex. Instead, we've been able to engage with thousands of prospective students and their families in less than six (6) months!
  • It's allowed us to continue to portray our brand as strong, industrious and professional.
Hopin's main benefit was a "keynote/livestream stage" that had a great feel, but the product was incredibly expensive. I also didn't like how they performed their product demos.

I used Guidebook for years. They're great! But their software is not as engaging and unless it's changed due to COVID-19, they used to not be able to feature live sessions. It was more of a platform to utilize while you were at the live conference/event. It's my understanding that this was also how Attendify used to look, but it seems that they reimagined their product and invested resources to make it into what it is today.

I already recommended Attendify to a colleague in another department and he ended up using it! I give a rating of a 9 because it's a stellar product, especially for the price. It's great that you can even start building your virtual experience before you even purchase it. This helps visual learners like myself to see what it could potentially be like, work out for the desired use, etc. Overall, the platform is great for combining pre-recorded videos with live sessions. It helps provide a robust experience for attendees.
