Glisser Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Glisser's features:

Julia V.

Easy to use and engaging.

2017-09-12

Pros

Glisser makes creating an interactive presentation seamless and it is a great way to obtain answers and feedback.

Cons

I think that the program should have a way to integrate into a learning management system with regards to data.

Glisser is very useful for the learning environment and helps keeps the audience engaged and highlights areas of knowledge that need to be addressed.

Pros

- immediate feedback from audience - adding polls and documents is very easy - interactive learning helps others test their knowledge of the content

Cons

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

2017-11-18

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 will use it again at a second conference and I've already had a request for a third smaller and private presentation.

Cons

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.

This is by far the best presentation software out there.

2017-12-04

All the tools in one application!

Pros

Oh and the mobile device usage is awesome.

Cons

In a world that has all these features separately for free, the cost is the only draw back. There is great value in this software, greater value if it were more cost effective.

I used Glisser for the first time very last minute as we had a large audience to interact.

2017-11-02

Pros

Despite very little time to learn the program, I found it incredibly easy to use.

Cons

Being exposed to the metrics and additional data capture in real use is more convincing than just reading about it as a feature.

Adding interaction to library sessions

2018-09-20

Overall v positive, has assisted me in injecting some more activity in formal settings.

Pros

The ability to package together learning objects and build interaction into sessions - especially in a lecture theatre format.

Cons

Not having the opportunity to link through from URL's included in presentation slides - this makes it a little disjointed (having to open another browser with pre-loaded content), not insurmountable though.

Fairly simple and easy to use, with real time results

2017-10-25

Simple audience participation

Pros

It is simple to upload your presentation and add in your interactive slides. The mobile interface for the audience works well.

Cons

All audience members are asked to enter their email address when using the app for the first time. It would be nice to have themes matching those of Powerpoint for the interactive slides.

Bringing events to life

2020-03-19

Pros

Using Glisser is a great way to engage with our audience and our delegates really like that they can download slides instantly.

Cons

Sadly it isn't optimised for use on mobile phones so that can be tricky sometimes.

The software is clunky but acceptable for participant feedback.

2017-12-13

Pros

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.

Kyle

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.

Best ever received feedback from audience - I'm a Speaker for more than 10 year

2016-02-02

As first interactivity I choosed a closed question regarding the audience field of activity and this pointed out in real time the exact demographics in the audience (in percentage 34%, 21% 37%, 8%).

I'd recommend

2020-04-02

Pros

The look of the populated graphs, ease of use with cell phone, back-end data that could be pulled into client reports

Cons

That the presentation had to be shown via the browser in the Glisser system (as opposed to a PPT)

Great way to make events interactive

2020-02-13

We used Glisser to manage the Q&A portion after each speaker session during one of our live events. The tool worked without flaw and attendees have said they have never seen an app of this type work so seamlessly and actually bring value to the conversation.

Pros

I liked how easy and seamless it was to display Q&A questions following our speaker sessions during a live event

Cons

We would love to see the Twitter Wall feature be developed further and become available as we used a different solution to display social media discussions during our event.

Review (:

2018-10-19

We use this program in the classroom to promote in-class participation and it works great. All you have to do is put in the url and you are right in the program following the professor's presentation.

Pros

You can download the presentation at the end with whatever notes you made.

Cons

It's difficult to go back to previous slides, you have to go through all of the ones in between. You are not able to change your question answer once clicked.

To go back and find a selected slide, tap the '4 squares' icon in the centre at the bottom, then you can pick your slide.

Happy Glissering...

Great product but too expensive for our need

Worked well. Better would be something like a QR code for the website, for quick audience access.

2017-10-02

Interactivity

Pros

Functionality. Integrated slides & polling. I don't know about customer support or value- I didn't use support, and I didn't pay for it. And the pricing wasn't on the website, so who knows? I did forward info to our IT/audiovisual guy, but I'm not calling to find out the price.

Cons

Took too long for audience to access the website.

We've looked at QR codes, but found most attendees (outside of Asia) don't have a QR reader downloaded on their phone, so haven't prioritised this. With Apple looking like it might reignite the role of QR, maybe we'll change that soon...

As you used our free product I hope you got good value! Pricing varies significantly depending on the level of support you require, so we always like to discuss that with our clients rather than just be a software company selling a generic tool.

Good luck with your next presentation!
