Awesome for group meetings

Overall, I'm extremely impressed with RTW, and plan to use it for years to come.

Pros

Very impressed with this software. I was using Airmeet, which is great as well, but wasn't perfect. I needed to find something that was flawless for my atendees, and I felt Run the World met those expectations slightly better than Airmeet.

Cons

I've heard they blast my attendees with marketing emails. I'd love to be able to at least throttle that down a bit. But overall, very impressed with the user experience.

I wish there could be a more collaborative option for multiple users working together.

Feedback for Run the World

As mentioned, our organizations was using the platform for specific events. I would have liked to use it more often, but the formatting just did not fit our needs. I appreciated the support team very much, they have always been there to help with any questions and were very patience with needs.

Pros

I loved the different social interactions available. I liked the event page that gets created once you complete your event. I liked that recordings are available for the team after the event. The app connections you can have as people sign up for the platform. It is visually pleasing and highlights the speakers effectively.

Cons

The sign up process for attendees is not intuitive and it is confusing once people "RSVP'ed" for the event. The constant emails send reminders but it is not clear for attendees that they have to complete an account. As for speakers, the process to get them on the platform is also very confusing, we had to walk each speaker step by step to ensure that they knew how to sign up and enter the event. I also wish there was opportunities for subtitles to be added as speakers are presenting for accessibility purposes. The "booth" format is also difficult to implement because you need to attach a "sponsor" but you can't just make a speaker lead that room. Overall, the platform is great, but more details and support that walks people step by step will be helpful. I also wish the materials were available in other languages. We did not use the platform every month, instead we used it for bigger events, so I do think the more people use it the more intuitive it will become.

Reasons for Choosing Run The World

The team was very personable and supportive. We felt that they heard our needs and were helpful throughout the whole process.

Solid Virtual Event Platform with Room to Grow

Generally a good experience with RTW in spite of the various issues. I'm pretty sure they have solved some of these problems. The customer support was helpful, however there were certain product limitations that could not be overcome.

Pros

RTW was an affordable virtual event platform that allowed for added fun features. The learning curve was low, and customer service was responsive and somewhat helpful. One of the best features is the Groupfie.

Cons

RTW could make it easier to add video content to an event especially short (1-3mins). The only option we had was to upload videos to YouTube and screen share from a link. This was cumbersome, even with a dedicated tech producer. It's much more streamlined to upload the videos to RTW and simply click to play. Another feature we used was the 1:1 networking. This was fun, but ideally the match ups would be between our team members and our guests. There was no way to filter who met who, consequently I was matched with other members of my team, vs. potential customers. We also had multiple hosts, and switching between various combinations of hosts and guests could be more streamlined. I would say StreamYard had this down (as well as the video sharing). Grab the mic feature did not always work, and this was likely due to user browser choice and/or internet issues.

Reasons for Choosing Run The World

RTW was recommended by a trusted digital expert. Hopin was still very new.

Connection For the New Normal

Overall, run the world has been great to connect our organization together during a time we cannot be in person. It closely mirrors and in person experience and allows you to do this without having someone to match each person for the chat afterwards.

Pros

Run the World has allowed us to host our meetings that we would typically have in person. Due to the pandemic, we could not have our typical meetings. The software has allowed us all to connect, listen to a keynote speaker, and have social hour afterwards to mimic the feel of an in person gathering.

Cons

Sometimes the algorithm pairs you with the same person after a short period. Perhaps it should recognize you have paired with somebody already and allow you to pair with somebody new.

Reasons for Switching to Run The World

We were interested in exploring another platform that offers us different options for meeting.
