InvitePeople is an event platform focused at conferences, events, meetings and congresses at a distance. Invite People is customizable and you can adjust your events for different scenarios, but it quickly becomes complex to use and it is easy to drown in the amount of features. Also as a participant, it is important to have some technical skills to navigate the various event rooms, schedule and interaction!
Univid is instead the simple but powerful option for you who are not a technician or simply want something an easy tool to set up your own conference, event, or series of events and meetings - which you can set up and customize yourself in no time! In Univid, as an event organizer, you can thus quickly make all adjustments to the graphic appearance, create polls, quizzes and decide which functions you want to include in your session. In Univid, as a host, you can easily set up a session and get started in less than 60 seconds. The user-friendliness is also reflected for the participants, who can just as easily enter the session and quickly understand all the functionality! Through a simple discover feed where participants can discover the various events and sessions, which for example has been used by Almedalen Week - one of the largest political fairs in the world, you make your event accessible and clear!
InvitePeople requires a bit of work and work to adapt to make your event look good, in a slightly outdated user interface it is difficult to get a modern and fresh feeling that impresses your audience. With a lot happening on each page, it can be a bit of a messy experience, and the broadcast easily falls out of focus.
In Univid you have a clear feed and schedule with all your events and sessions. This flow is graphically nice, easy to see, and has been choosen because of that by customers such as Almedalen Week. You also have a clear layout that all your sessions and events follow, which allows participants to easily navigate the platform. You can then enable and disable features depending on the interaction and look you want, but everything follows the same layout. For example, in a few sessions you can run a stripped-down cinema mode with emojis and reactions, smaller video meetings, or create immersive experiences with live broadcast, chat, gamification, quizzes and polls! You can also easily design and customize the look in under 60 seconds, with your own logos, colors and wallpapers.
In InvitePeople there is support to have a schedule of the events that take place during the conference or the various seminar tracks. This is good when you have a number of different events that you want to overview and schedule for the participants. As a participant, you can choose between a list view or schedule view.
In Univid, just like InvitePeople, there is support for both different tracks or parallel sessions, with a clear flow of all events. The flow is sorted by time and always shows the relevant events first. In a visually attractive way, the various events are presented, which, among other things. customers that Almedalen Week used for one of the world's largest political gatherings, with over 700 events over 4 days.
InvitePeople has simple functionality to engage the audience via e.g. polls and simpler gamification, but for the participants it is important to keep track of where the interaction takes place in a rather complex user interface, where chat and quiz end up in the same flow. In addition, it is limited what types of polls are set, how the statistics are shown to the participants and it can be difficult to get an overview of chat at the same time as the leaderboard.
Univid has instead gathered all the best interactivity in a series of powerful, qualitative and fun features, which you as a host can easily activate, customize and work on all by 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 nice. Participants can easily answer polls and quizzes, which pop up on the screen above the video so they can easily see what they should answer and when! With a real-time response flow and statistics that you can choose the look of - e.g. if you want pie charts or nice bar charts - you can give your participants a beautiful and fun experience! In Univid, gamification is easily linked to all interaction with points and an integrated leaderboard. With the push of a button, gamification can be easily activated or deactivated in your Univid session!
In InvitePeople, chat is a somewhat complex experience where votes, surveys and chat messages are mixed in one and the same flow. Every time you as a host send a chat message, you get a popup that covers the screen where you can write your message, which makes it more like sending a traditional email. In addition, there are a number of settings when you as a host send a message in the chat - where you e.g. can pin posts, hide them and notify participants about the chat message, which is recommended by InvitePeople themselves not to do as it can create confusion for participants who have hidden the chat. So little of a complex experience where it's easy to make mistakes.
In Univid, chat is a simple, graphically beautiful, and fun experience. In Univid's chat, you can have profile pictures, link your LinkedIn profile for networking, have discussion threads where participants respond to messages and react in a fast-paced flow with a variety of emojis on each post! In addition, you can activate gamification and get points in a leaderboard based on how active the participants are in chat and interaction! In Univid, polls, polls and quizzes are clearly separated from the chat so that participants have as simple an experience as possible.
In InvitePeople you can make minor adjustments to the look, such as adjusting the logo and colors, but it is difficult to navigate and understand where the graphic elements will be visible or how the experience will be.
Univid is instead built to easily design beautiful digital events all by yourself. 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 .
