Customer service made all the difference in the world

ViewStub enabled us to produce a professional conference, with the only hiccups being of our own doing. We are sufficiently impressed that we intend to use it again next year.

PROS

The platform offers solutions for every aspect of event production & management, and the level of customer service provided was exemplary (thanks, [SENSITIVE CONTENT]!)

CONS

We found the studio controls to be slightly less than intuitive, which made us stumble a few times during both practices and the actual event. Had we been more familiar with the system, it might've been less of an impact.

Reason for choosing ViewStub

from the features standpoint, the Studio was a very attractive feature. The flexibility of desired options was also attractive. Additionally, their monthly cost was a plus.

Rocky start leads to great improvement

Over all it was a bit of a rollercoster. Were now engaging View stub a second time for our 12 hour bulesque telethon and were happy to have a very warm welcome back. Were hopping we've both ( us and view stub) have learned from the previous experience enough that we won't have any of issues we had last time.

PROS

The ease of use in the product helped us deploy. I also appreciate its a hosting service and ticketing services all in one. The real gold star here is the support we got. Weekends and evenings we were given great help and treatment.

CONS

we are in Canada and being able to reach a global audience is important to us. But once we'd raised funds it was very difficult to the currency conversion and the funds sent to us properly. It has improved since then and View stub worked with us to get things corrected.

Reason for choosing ViewStub

We have very specific issues as we have Burlesque adult 18+ content, and were doing a 12 hour show. So we have content and bandwidth issues to deal with, international tickets and pricing and View stub and their great support for the price solves a lot of these problems for us.

Not reliable and a big let down

When we were going through the discussions to bring this on for the livestream and on demand portions of our annual PRIDE Festival. We were told that we would have an account manager that would set everything up for us to ensure successful live broadcast. This never happened. We ended up setting it up ourselves. Following the directions from our account manager. It was confusing and totally not worth it. Our entire second day of our festival did not stream. We had people complaining. With the finders fee they charge on top of the percentage, made this a very expensive registration software only. We will be moving to different platform for all 9f our remaining events this year and next year's PRIDE festival.

PROS

The white label feature. This integrated great with our website.

CONS

The livestream did not work....AT ALL on the second day of our PRIDE Festival.

Reason for choosing ViewStub

We were told that we could simply turn our event over to our account manager, and they would set up everything for us. We were also told it was simple and the livestream portion was easy to set up. I wish we would have went with something else. Our very first PRIDE Parade was completely lost. This was a very expensive experiment that turned out to be less than average registration software only. Very frustrating.

Vendor Response

Gretchen, thank you for your comment and continued partnership! After discussing the details of your experience with our success team, we wanted to leave some tips for your future events! As you discussed with our success team, your two-day event had some logistical errors that originated outside of ViewStub's control. We understand you hired two different A/V companies to stream Friday and Saturday individually. Friday's A/V team failed to click the "end stream" button, which resulted in no recording of the event that day, as it continued past the allowable time for the on-demand replay. Additionally, as suggested by your account manager, it is a best practice to record locally to your own storage as the event is streaming. On Saturday, your A/V company did not click "Start Stream" in ViewStub's Software which resulted in no stream transmitting to your attendees. As the third-party software provider, this is outside of our control. Thank you for understanding.

Highly recommended

Excellent

PROS

We use Viewstub currently to view on-demand webinars as well as setting content to launch at a predetermined time. Having a build-in Q and A as well as polls solve the problem of interactivity on prerecorded content (Speakers can enter when it launch and answer through the Q and A.). It can be white labelled as well and embedded onto your website. They are adding additional features regularly eg one on one networking. Very easy ticketing system. This product is going places, don't miss out

CONS

A "sponsor" feature has been added (thank you) but it can expand a bit more. Really nothing negative to report! Please add ZAR as currency!

Reason for choosing ViewStub

The easy registration process, embedding/whitelabel feature. Just a very positive experience

Reasons for switching to ViewStub

The registration process is complicated. With viewstub it's quick and easy.
