Skykit Feature Reviews

SkyKit Review

2018-12-21

It seems to be a bit harder to troubleshoot and manage, with a lot of maintenance having to be done on the SkyKit side, and not as much management and control on the administration side as a customer.

Pros

The best thing about the software is its scalability as well as its ease of use.

Cons

The SkyKit Content however I feel can be expanded with extra features that can help with organization of displays, better content management within the console, as well as better overall performance improvements with content getting updated.

Easy to Communicate

2018-12-21

Super easy to use and control content. Look slick.

Pros

We used them to promote things like holiday parties, visitors, open enrollment, contests etc. it’s one part of our comprehensive communication channels. We create all our documents in power point on our branded templates and then convert to pdf to ensure formatting stays intact.

Cons

We couldn’t figure out how to run videos with subtitles. That’s ok.

Skykit is a Great Product and a Great Value

2017-03-21

We have been using Skykit for displaying slides and video content since October of 2016 in all of our pizza shops (22) and recently added a display to our coffee shop.

Pros

Clean, simple interface.

Cons

Could use some improvement in sorting and filtering of content elements.

Used to be better

2018-12-21

It was a great way to showcase content to our office and keep them informed on updates.

Pros

It's fairly intuitive and the UI is nicely designed.

Cons

Only then would the system register the updates and publish with the new content. The other con is the playlist functionality is quite klugy.

Great for managing multiple displays

2018-12-27

Skykit has helped up keep our marketing messages current and fresh.

Pros

It's web-based, support for HTML5 content, generally intuitive user interface, and has a lot of features.

Cons

Can't view what's currently playing (limited to screenshots), documentation could be better and more complete.

Skykit Platform Review

2018-12-27

Our experiences in schools and small businesses has been overall very satisfying.

Pros

The integration between Google accounts and their CMS portal is great.

Cons

Relying on what the "content" is titled and visual checking of screens is a bit annoying.

Great Media Broadcast System - with steep learning curve

2018-12-28

We do find that our audience takes notice of the media feeds and really like the ability for multiple users to manage content.

Pros

One of the biggest pluses of the software is ease of access from any web-enabled device (and by multiple users). This allows for updates on the fly from just about anywhere and the speed with which programs update is impressive.

Cons

While there are good "help" resources on the site, understanding the differences between programs, content, etc. isn't as obvious and organizing material is a bit clunky.

Skykit was an answer to prayers...affordable, easy to use and great interface with Google Slides.

2017-08-03

Easy to convey information on church events to 2000 worshipers each week.

Pros

After a very short time they learn how to publish content to the displays.

Cons

A little tricky to format for a portrait display. Google Slides is default for landscape. Images are difficult to proportion.

Best user interface of any CMS. Easy to use with powerful features.

2018-02-14

An easy solution for our customers

Pros

Completely responsive design that can be controlled from a smartphone as easy as a laptop.

Cons

A little pricey for the market but when you add in all of the news and weather feeds the price balances out. It would be good to offer a cheaper version without the feeds for users that don't need them.

Skykit is ok.

2018-12-27

Their customer service is pretty good, the only complaint is the user interface. Huge learning curve, video tutorials would benefit new users.

Pros

It works and does what it is designed to do.

Cons

The user interface is not user friendly at all

A Promising and Powerful Piece of Software

2017-03-27

We are very pleased with the pricing and the ease of use of the interface of SkyKit.

Pros

The user interface is simple to understand and use.

Cons

For our particular usage, scheduling date-specific content out for the entire week is a cumbersome process.

I love Skykit!

2018-12-21

Some of our locations don’t have time so I’m able to manage for them quite easily.

Pros

Ease of use, ability to display individualized content along with common material.

Cons

The only con, which is not a big deal, in my opinion is that the automatic update doesn’t work for us. It could be our set up (lots of restrictions)

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

Works seamlessly with Google Suite. Makes it drop dead simple to get end users up to speed. It costs about 1/5 as much as other solutions. Can be up and running in an hour or so.

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.
