From sales demo onto onboarding to configuration. They held our hands the entire process.

2017-08-05

School based users, instead of District level admin can update their messages daily while still maintaining a common brand across the district.

Pros

Makes it drop dead simple to get end users up to speed.

Cons

Have not found any issues yet as we are just starting to use it. The user permissions leveling needs approvals and some workflow escalation process.

Skykit is a great way to manage content across geographically dispersed organization's

2017-03-21

Being spread across different time zones and continents, it can be hard to get information out quickly and efficently.

Pros

Easy to use, integrated with the G-Suite.

Cons

Things can be a bit slow to update at times, also have been experiencing memory issues with the Skykit chromeboxes themselves.

Overall great product

2017-03-24

This can be a bit time consuming to edit since we have to edit multiple instances of the same document to make it consistent throughout the program.

Pros

Great way to keep our company updated about current events going on in our organization.

Cons

It can be confusing to navigate through sometimes, I never remember off the top of my head the difference between playlists and programs. I have to click on each one to see if it takes me to where I am wanting to go.

Great product that does the job well. A little tricky to use at first but once you get to using it on a consistent basis it flows well.

Napa Valley College went from a complex system to a very easy to use and user friendly.

2017-08-18

Pros

Napa Valley College like the most of skykit is how easy the system is to use. the end user who use the system didn't have to have IT back ground to use skykit.

Cons

After using skykit, Napa Valley College would like to see a couple of more option added to the system. the ability to have video streaming, would be a great option to have because different departments could stream classes, show, guest speakers through out the campus.
