Oxford is a great option for Meeting Management

This has been a great relationship over the years. They have continually upgraded their system, and they keep making changes to the system.

Pros

We have used Oxford Abstracts for many years, and have been very pleased. They have continually upgraded the program over the years and is now very user-friendly. We looked at other software companies and found that they were much more expensive, and everything we needed was available on Oxford. Their customer service is great. We usually hear back from them within just a matter of hours.

Cons

For our needs, there isn't really anything we don't like.

Reasons for Choosing Oxford Abstracts

For the money Oxford had the best services available.

Good software for handling virtual conference

Superb customer support when we unexpectedly had to convert our conference to virtual.

Pros

Holds all the information you need in one place. Easy to look up what you need. Great feedback from reviewers of abstracts saying it was easy to use. Options to download specific reports such as sumamrising presenters by country helpful.

Cons

Anything we didn't like we fed back and they created functions for us that made it work, such as displaying different time zones or being able to comment on a presentation. It would have been useful to store the videos within OA rather than having to upload to youtube and manual insert links for each presentation. Some registrants got confused that you had to register for oxford abstracts and then register again for the actual conference. The ability to link the delegate email lists with different types of registrations would be helpful as we had to manually de-select emails for people who were only registered for some parts of the conference so that they didnt get emails about other parts of the conference that they had not signed up for.

Oxford Usage

It has been terrific after learning the ins and outs of the program. Has been great for our membership, committee, etc. to view and access the abstract information.

Pros

The ease of finding and accessing the abstracts and information. Ease of use for viewing!

Cons

It is hard to sort finding specific abstracts in PDF form without getting every single one of them. The submissions items to sort from have more information (column items) than the Decisions items to sort from. The column items should be the same - so you can find certain items using the Decisions information.

Oxford Abstracts

I have been using Oxford Abstracts since 2006 when we first started doing online abstract submissions. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and his team have always gone above and beyond to help me when I have had challenges. I stepped away from programme management for a couple of years and then had to pick it up again. There were quite big changes and the system was further developed but again [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] stepped up and gave me a full run through of all the features and how to use them.

Pros

Support is amazing, there is nothing they won't help with. Easy to use once you have had a run through with them. All in one system with easy switch between submission stages. Customizable questions which is handy because not all events use the same processes. Love the blind-review function.

Cons

I honestly cannot think of one thing I don't like.
