MeetApp is an event platform that has primarily focused on physical and hybrid events. Thus, the platform centers around a mobile app. The mobile app has a schedule and program, the opportunity to ask questions and answer polls, etc. Today, MeetApp also offers an application in the browser, and also works with digital events, but it is easily perceived as a complex system that focuses on everything except the broadcast itself. As a participant, it is important to succeed in navigating between the different event rooms, the schedule and find the functions to interact!
In Univid, the event experience is instead centered around the live broadcast and the video - it is clear, nice and simple. Univid is thus a simple but powerful alternative for you who are not a technician or simply want something quick to work on to set up an event, webinar or professional meeting. In Univid, as an event organizer, you can quickly make all adjustments to the graphic appearance, create polls, quizzes and decide which functions you want to include in your session. 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!
MeetApp requires a bit of work and work to adapt to make your event look good, in a somewhat outdated user interface it is difficult to create a modern and fresh feeling that impresses your audience.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 clearly defined session which everything is focused around. This session contains the broadcast, the interaction and the whole experience for the participants. You can easily connect different live sessions or events, and get an overview of them in a discover feed, which has been used by customers such as the Almedalen Week - one of the largest political fairs in the world.
You 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 some events you can run a stripped-down cinema mode with emojis and reactions, hold smaller video meetings with breakouts, or create immersive event 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.
MeetApp's biggest focus is the mobile application that must be downloaded by all participants in the event. A participant who only goes to one event a year, and wants to participate on their phone, must download the app to be able to participate on the mobile.
Today, mobile devices are so powerful that they can easily run all functionality directly in the browser. Therefore, Univid is instead completely web-based and everything is available to all event participants with just one link - so nothing to download for either participants or hosts! Univid is a powerful tool and offers all the functionality for interaction, chat opportunities, video meetings and breakouts imaginable. Customers such as Almedalen Week, which used Univid for over 700 events over 4 days, saw a big advantage in how accessible Univid is. The platform is automatically adapted to all formats for mobile devices and computers!
MeetApp has 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 relatively complex user interface that can involve both the mobile and the computer, with many different views for the leaderboard, mentometer questions, evaluations, etc. In addition, the types of polls are set, how the statistics are displayed to the participants, and it can be difficult to get an overview of the chat at the same time as the leaderboard and the broadcast.
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 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 good. 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. At the touch of a button, gamification can be easily enabled or disabled in your Univid session!
In MeetApp, the chat is mainly a private chat between different participants, or a so-called private social network. The chat is easily perceived as difficult to read with a small font, which affects the accessibility of the event.
In Univid, chatting 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 MeetApp 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 .
