Overall Satisfaction with ClearSlide

I use Clearslide to facilitate both in person and remote slide deck presentations and demonstrations of our product. We also use Clearslide for conference calls and other presentations. I spend an equal amount of time in the office as well as selling in the field and use the Clearslide remote control app on my phone to run through slide decks in person with prospective clients.
  • I find Clearslide very easy to connect remote users. Very little firewall/ other IT hurdles to overcome
  • Uploading content and reviewing multiple presentations is very easy
  • The remote control phone app makes moving between slides mid presentation very easy
  • Screen share is also very easy to utilize which I did not find to be the case with competing systems
  • The conference call lines, especially international are not as reliable as I would like
  • Converting powerpoint animations could be easier so they present in the same way on Clearslide
  • The engagement metrics for viewers of a presentation is confusing in terms of what and how it measures the engagement of the viewers
  • While in the field it is a cost-effective way to connect multiple parties for presentations across multiple locations including the conference calls
  • I've had little to no presentations that couldn't go through as a result of viewers unable to connect
  • The mobile app support also means I don't have to bring additional tools like slide clickers to move through presentations
I find Clearslide to be much more user-friendly and the login process for the viewers to be very very intuitive. Other products make the login process and access code entry difficult. It was about 50/50 if all the viewers would be able to even get connected with other products. Clearslide has made connectivity a breeze.
The most compelling feature for me was the lack of software the viewer has to install on their side to join a presentation. Alternative systems like Go To Meeting and Webex seem to be hit and miss if the firewalls and IT policies on the viewer's side would allow them to connect. Clearslide also makes recording and cataloging meetings for after the fact review easy.
