Glisser overview

What is Glisser?

Glisser is an enterprise Software-as-a-Service solution that engages audiences and gathers valuable data from live and virtual events and meetings. It does this by sharing presentation slides to audience smart-devices, and allowing them to participate and feedback electronically. It enables organisations to connect their face-to-face communication efforts into their marketing and management databases.

It incorporates live presentation slide sharing to audience devices, audience response systems, live polling, Twitter feeds and other audience interaction. It can be used by both individual speakers, as well as event organisers, to make presentations more engaging and collect valuable data.

The Glisser platform takes regular PowerPoint or Keynote slide decks and pushes them out live to audience mobile devices, slide-by-slide, as they are presented. It then enables members of the audience to interact with the presenter or each other, and collects their feedback. Attendees can also electronically mark-up the slides with notes, and keep them for future reference.

Glisser integrates slide-by-slide ‘like’ voting, live audience questions, Twitter feeds, as well as polling and feedback slides integrated seamlessly within the original deck. There is no need for a second monitor or technical support to switch screen feeds, as Glisser can be operated by a lone presenter from a single device. It’s that simple.

Audience members can access slides via their web browser – a solution that works across all major devices including Windows Phone and BlackBerry, without any download required.

Presenters can set up presentations in a few minutes by uploading their files at the glisser.com website, switching on the social features they want to include, and dragging-and-dropping in audience polls. They then get a unique code to send to their audiences, to use in-app or via their web browser.

Glisser was an integral part of a lively conference presentation to a room of about 100 people

Review Source: Capterra

I was able to deliver a much more engaging presentation at the software conference I was invited to speak at. I feel that Glisser made my presentation much more memorable and had helped me build my image and brand in the market I operate in.

Pros
I loved the way Glisser integrated easily with my Powerpoint presentation. I hate talks with large wordy slide decks and was looking for ways to engage my audience. I used very few slides with large print and interesting graphics. Glisser's modern look and ability to customize the view made their product look like it fit naturally into deck. I used the live audience poll feature to present interesting questions to the attendees which drew them into the content and held their focus. I received many positive comments and stayed for almost 2 hours afterward to answer questions! The folks at Glisser are very accommodating and were happy to help me make the most of my presentation. They contacted me quickly after I signed up for the trial and showed interest in what I was doing. They answered my questions by email within hours and attentively followed up afterward. I've had great success using Glisser at one conference. I will use it again at a second conference and I've already had a request for a third smaller and private presentation. I hope to be able to use it again for future engagements.

Cons
I compared Glisser to half a dozen competing products and found that some were easier to use and some were more difficult. I had to get used to the web interface which is intuitive enough but still a bit different than using a desktop program like PowerPoint. An add-on must be installed into PowerPoint which proved to be tricky. The slide deck must also be uploaded to the Glisser site and kept in sync before a presentation can be made. During the presentation, the live slides must be toggled to in a browser window. The Glisser plug in makes this relatively painless but it is still an extra step to remember in the middle of your presentation. I occasionally found the uploaded poll slides appeared in a different order than in my deck - and I still haven't figured that out why. Instead, I used generic local slides and website slide with the actual poll questions.

The software is clunky but acceptable for participant feedback.

Used weekly for 6-12 months

Pros
Participant feedback is important and this is the only redeeming quality. I do enjoy knowing how people are receiving the information I am sharing with them.

Cons
The design, the lack of intuition, the constant asking for my password/making me re-register. All of these things are so frustrating!

Thanks for your comments and apologies it didn't work out for you.

I looks like you've mainly been testing the PowerPoint add-in - this is best used in conjunction with the platform where you can see all the participant interactions being made, slide downloads, etc. The add-in alone won't show you this. We've checked you're account and it's all there!

Data protection is really important to our clients, so that does mean our password process has to be strong. In particular, where PowerPoints may contain sensitive data and could get left open on AV laptops, we do need to enforce log-outs, etc.

Thanks for taking the time to trial.

Difficult to use

Pros
Initial set up was easy - there was a lot of personalisation available and I was able to incorporate lots of interaction styles. It is unique, and definitely worth paying for IF you can afford it.

Cons
It was really difficult using this with children. They didn't understand the format of it the way they did with Kahoot. This would, however, be perfect for an adult audience.
