Univid vs. Hopin: What is right for me?

Great question! We obviously think Univid is pretty awesome, but let us give you a honest answer:

User interface and complexity

Hopin focuses on larger and more complicated events, which is reflected in the software, which becomes relatively large and complex for a user who wants to be able to set up an event himself. It is important to keep track of all the different scenes, tracks and environments in Hopin, and it is a high learning curve for both participants and hosts to understand how the flows and where the event takes place. Event organizers say that it is easy for participants not to find the various network meetings or scenes, and need to learn the tool first. Event organizers also feel that they need a dedicated support person present to help with the event and make people understand the Hopin platform, which requires the event to be large enough to have a budget for such assistance.

Univid is instead an easy but powerful alternative. In Univid, your event is centered in a session, where all interaction, networking and action takes place! In Univid, as an event organizer, you can make all the adjustments to the graphic appearance yourself, create polls, quizzes and decide which functions you want to include in your session. As a host, you can easily set up a session and get started in less than 60 seconds, which would take significantly longer in Hopin. The user-friendliness is also reflected for the participants, who can just as easily enter the session and quickly understand all the functionality! It's perfect when you want a easy and clear alternative for the majority of your events and broadcasts, which can be set up quickly, without compromising on functionality for interaction and graphical appearance.

Interactivity - how to engage the audience

Hopin has a limited number of features to engage the audience, which primarily consists of polls functionality. The results in Hopin are presented in a formal format that does not stand out, and many event organizers therefore interact via a third-party application such as Mentimeter.

Univid has instead gathered all the best interactivity in a number of powerful, qualitative and fun functions, which you as a host can easily activate, adapt and work in completely yourself. In Univid you can even create a poll in the middle of the event, or in peace and quiet prepare a quiz that is prepared in your session before the event starts! Interaction with Univid can thus be created quickly and easily, and is also graphically appealing and looks really good! You can choose between different types of graphs and ways to visualize the response statistics, and choose between beautiful word clouds, cake charts or bar charts. With reactions and statistics that will impress your audience, you can be confident in using Univid's selection of the market's absolute best features to engage your events, meetings or webinar participants!

Security and GDPR at event

Under the latest GDPR legislation, it is difficult for many EU companies to use international services, with data storage and cross-border transmission.

Univid is a good alternative if you want to make sure you keep track of security and comply with the GDPR. It can be a great security for many players when it comes to GDPR and security issues to have servers and data storage located in Sweden and the Nordic countries. As an event organizer, it is also nice that all video communication is encrypted with the latest technology.

You also have different settings for who can join the meeting or watch the broadcast, where you can, for example, limit event participants to a predefined list of email addresses that can create an account, or run a more open mode where everyone can create accounts , or even just participate directly with a nickname. So you have full control over who checks and what level of security you want at your specific event.

Support that responds quickly and helps you - locally in Sweden

One problem many customers experience with Hopin is customer support that is not available, takes responsibility, or responds on time. When you have an event, you are often in need of quick help and do not have time to wait in a telephone queue or to chat with a response time of up to 24 hours. The fact that the support for Hopin is also on the other side of the world and in another language can make it difficult to get help when it is needed most.

At Univid there is a dedicated team of skilled and fast employees locally in Sweden. The support team is involved and can answer your questions via a live chat or directly by phone. You can get help directly, without waiting time, and have the opportunity to get help on site in the studio at a first event - a great security for you who arrange events.

Graphic experience and design of events

Hopin is graphically a formal alternative, which does not offer much creative freedom or the opportunity to adapt your event. You can upload your logo but not customize the experience much more than that - which means you have to work more with the content to give the audience a wow feeling. If you are not interested in customizing your event so much, but are happy with a slightly more formal and generic look - you can try both Hopin and Univid and see which one suits you best!

Univid is built instead to easily design beautiful digital events. Thus, there are a variety of templates, templates and options to help you quickly customize and customize your event. In Univid you can, among other things, choose the color of the header, choose your own background image, decide the text color and upload your own logo in the event. In addition, you can easily activate the most powerful and intuitive features gathered in one session. You can always see in real time what your event looks like, without first having to go through a lot of complex menus where you do not understand where your change takes effect. So no more consulting hours or complex menus! Feel free to try Univid yourself by creating an account at: app.univid.io .
