Demo Wizards review

Overall, I really like using this technology. As a Brand Ambassador specialist, it makes monitoring and managing demos simple.

Pros

Among my favorite features, is the ability to SUBMIT AVAILABILITY and to accept new demo requests, all through the portal. Also, ONLINE REPORTING, is great. I love entering photos, comments, receipts, sales and expenses, all in one place. Finally, Demo Wizards has a practical and efficient way of sharing information. THE LIBRARY is easily accessible to Brand Ambassadors and Customers. It is easy for Customers to load information and trainings about their products and it is simple for Brand Ambassadors to find documents and extra information about customers.

Cons

However, I wish that the different areas of online reporting could be done at separate times. For example, it would be great to load photos and comments, but then go back later to add sales, receipts, or make changes to comments, all without having to “submit” the report. Like just simply ‘saving’ each section separately, but not actually ‘submitting’ the report until all sections are fully ready for submission.

Response from Demo Wizard

Thank you for the kind words. We did implement staged reporting, similar to what you describe, last week. However, the image attachment step is currently a last one. We are working on independent attachment of images directly from your phone, to make it even better.

Demo Wizard Review

It would be great to be able to customize the report that has to be filled out each day to meet our specific goals and objectives. Then be able to download each persons reports for the week to review without having to go to each individual assignment.

Pros

The software is simple. I feel check in and check out are easy to use and easy to track. It would be great if there was a way to have them verify check in throughout the day, especially since assignments are 8 hour days. Overall, I feel the software meets the needs of our big picture objective.

Cons

It would be nice to have the availability to assign one reps assignments for the week all at once and not have to do day by day. As stated above, it would be great to have "check points" throughout the day to verify they are still on location.

Reasons for choosing Demo Wizard

We were fortunate to come across Demo Wizard right away and chose to use them right off the get go.

Response from Demo Wizard

Thank you for your review Matthew. You can customize the report now to add fields for your special goals and objectives. We'll reach out to you to show how to do it and to discuss summary reporting for management as well as additional check in requirements.

Demo Wizard

Pros

Neutral on its capabilities. Would be nice for it to all be a mobile app so everything can be done with the phone during /after the demo.

Cons

1. Mapping often not accurate. It has happened that I check-in/check-out at the same spot but the map would come up different. 2. Inconvenient to have to resize images in order to upload, better if able to take demo photos directly within the app during demo.

Response from Demo Wizard

Hello Margaret, Thank you for your review. Please check locations settings on your phone to improve mapping accuracy. We'll look into the image upload problem.

Demo Wizard cuts administrative time so you grow your business

Scheduling of Brand Ambassadors used to involve many calls and many changes back and forth between stores. Now I see exactly who is available for a store and time my clients want and can set the demo with a few clicks. Reporting is online, standardized and streamlined with all the info and pictures my clients want. Invoicing is now done effortlessly as all the receipts and expenses are in the reports.

Pros

I no longer need to make multiple calls that can span days to set a demo Once the demos are set, everyone involved can access all relevant info Online Reporting is simpler for the BA's and is treasured by the clients for the concise, relevant and actionable information. Invoicing and Payroll used to take me a full day, now it literally takes less that 30 min.

Cons

Not enough stores have it. Setting demos for the ones that do, spoils me for the stores that it takes me days to contact and coordinate a demo with. It would be great if they could provide insight into what days and times are best at each store.

Demos made easy

It has helped me to better organize my time. The calendar feature is wonderful.

Pros

Everything needed to schedule my availability, commit to and confirm a demo, complete and report the demo and view the payments afterwards is at my fingertips in a very organized straightforward manner.

Cons

Sometimes I have problems with the reports. I have had trouble trying to save and then go back to finish. I ended up starting over.

Response from Demo Wizard

Hello Michelle, Thank you for bringing up the problems with reports. Our engineering team will investigate possible cause and fix it as soon as they can.
