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 and environments, and there is a high learning curve for both participants and coughs, 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.
Univid is instead a simple 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 Univid session and quickly understand all the functionality!
Hopin has a limited number of functions to engage the audience, which primarily consists of polls functionality. The results 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! 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! With Univid, you can gather all interaction in one place, so the participants do not have to jump on. In Univid there is also the possibility to activate gamification with a leaderboard and interaction points!
Hopin is an American company and is thus according to the latest legislation within GDPR difficult for many companies within the EU to use, as all data is stored and managed in a third country.
Univid is a good alternative if you want to make sure you keep track of security and comply with the GDPR. With servers located in the Nordics and Swedish support, it can be a great security when it comes to GDPR and security issues.
Hopin is purely graphically a formal alternative, which does not offer as much creative freedom or opportunity to adapt their 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 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 .
