Overall Satisfaction with Whova

Red Forum is an all-day event. This is an annual event that features professional development and engagement with all staff in the workplace. Strategic plan information and relevant topics for staff to explore with a rich diversity of presenters. I had the honor to present this year as well as last year. I like the mobile app option along with the PC version.

Pros

  • Connection with senior admin
  • Connections with different department staff
  • Opportunities to enjoy the events together as a large team and exchange ideas
  • Encouragement

Cons

  • I was a presenter and had difficulty seeing speaker notes on my presentation slides at the same time as viewing the chat/polls
  • Navigating the main page using the computer is a bit different than the mobile app - I found the mobile app easier to navigate
  • The platform shows the agenda like a menu
  • Ice breakers are a good way to get to know people and their interests
  • I like the photo competition
Each person who had a role in helping me prepare my presentation was knowledgeable about this app. I have not dealt personally with anyone from the customer support team but all questions were answered and troubleshooting completed as we planned for the event. High-quality performance was evident throughout this Red Forum event.
I found Whova to be similar to many social media apps that I already use. It was easy to navigate. This was my second experience using Whova in my presenter role. I liked the icebreaker section to connect with other participants before the event started. I look forward to next year’s event.

Do you think Whova delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Whova's feature set?

Yes

Did Whova live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Whova go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Whova again?

Yes

Whova is a great alternative to in-person conferences. I can see how it may be useful for hybrid events - go to a live conference and also have sessions that are virtual. I think the college made a good choice in using Whova. I have presented twice using Whova and had great responses.
