Vevox does what you need for a better price

I use Vevox to assess student learning outcomes in University classes.

PROS

Vevox is just the right mix of features and value. It isn't the do-everything Poll Everywhere, but it definitely isn't bare-bones, and I find that the pricing makes it a much better value than more expensive options. There are many options for polling question types and I find many of them useful. For my senior level undergraduate classes it helps me quickly assess learning outcomes as well as keep students engaged. The branding features are great and make the product almost look like a white label solution with our university graphics and colors integrated into every poll. Vevox staff are also highly responsive when I have questions or need help with the product, and the development team is clearly still adding features to improve the product. This gives me assurance that the product will be supported for a long time to come, which is important when I invest time into a new software product.

CONS

Sometimes the polling sessions for students would disconnect, but I have a feeling this was on the user end as they were often using smartphones. It was easy enough for them to reconnect and join the session.

Reason for choosing Vevox

Poll Everywhere has many more features, but most were superfluous. Vevox nails the important stuff at much lower cost.

Excellent Tool for Improving Employee Engagement

Having had such a positive experience on the first organisation-wide event using Vevox, we plan to use it going forward in regular team meetings, town halls, training sessions internally, as well as customer-facing events and forums.

PROS

This tool is so easy to use - super intuitive to work it out for yourself but also comes with a wealth of guides, videos, webinars etc. as well as access to a really helpful customer success team. We used it for our first all-staff away day and it was a great success that went beyond my expectations. The Q&A feature enabled our employees to post their questions for senior managers anonymously and we saw a huge increase in the number of questions asked using Vevox compared to previous events. We also used the Poll feature to enable everyone to vote on ideas generated during the day. All of which made the event more interactive and enjoyable. In the event evaluation survey, Vevox was mentioned in several responses as a highlight of the event and was rated as 4 or 5 stars by over 95% of respondents. Many employees fed back that they felt more involved and enjoyed the ease of participation using Vevox.

CONS

Might be nice to be able to see results coming in live on things like Word Clouds and so on, rather than having to stop the survey / poll before it shows up. Other than that, we're new users still so haven't yet made use of the integrations with PowerPoint and/or MS Teams so waiting to see how that will go.

Reason for choosing Vevox

Vevox edged it with a more cost-effective pricing package and their customer support offer.

Vendor Response

Hi Gillian, Thank you for your review. It is great to hear that you had a positive experience using Vevox for the first time, so much so that you plan to use it going forward regularly in your organisation. It is fantastic also to hear that using our anonymous Q&A saw an increase in your interaction, and that Vevox was mentioned as a highlight of the event. I'm pleased to share with you that you are able to see polling results coming in live, here is a useful link to one of our short YouTube videos on this. The video is a word cloud video, and shows how to display live results through the navigation bar at 20secs in. This is something you will be able to do with all polling types: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYWo6BtINyc If you need any assistance with this or have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via our website. Many thanks, Kristina - Community Engagement Manager

A professional, useful polling app

Vevox is great for allowing accurate results from debates in meetings to be collected, with the ease of joining polls and a very usable app, i think its great. As mentioned earlier, if a simplified / kahoot! styled 'mode' was added, i think this would appeal to more events and younger audiences.

PROS

One of my favourite features is its integration with PowerPoint. Another point would be the aesthetic of the app is very professional The app itself is also very usable

CONS

I personally have always felt it lacks the certain engagement power of services such as kahoot!, which i know is more of a game styled polling service, but for simpler purposes, this would be favoured for a lot of people i know due to its simplicity and engagement. Otherwise i feel compared to other polling services, vevox has great competitive advantages.

Vendor Response

Vevox to increase engagement in the classroom

PROS

User friendly interface. Easy and fast to create a quiz or a survey, and easy to start/manage in the classroom. Allows time to stop and discuss the issues with the class, as the responses are anonymous (even if the emails are collected, they are not shown on the screen, so , it makes it possible to discuss the answers as a classroom peer-review but anonymous activity, which is excellent for shy students). Secondly, you can create a quick AI generated quiz in a short break, or integrate an AI generated quiz into your quiz. Several features you can combine or select from depending on the purpose: word cloud, multiple choice, open space/text. Many participants are allowed simultaneously.

CONS

AI quiz is predictable. The correct answer is always fist. Often it is also the longest, therefore, it is very easy to guess it. Students understand the 1st one is correct after the 2nd/3rd question. Also, AI quiz is limited to 5 questions.

Reasons for switching to Vevox

My employer has licensed Vevox so it is easy to use the tool witch is accessible.

Vendor Response

HI Halyna, Thanks so much for taking the time to review Vevox, we really the feedback and glad to hear it has been such a positive experience for you. Thanks also for the feedback on our AI quiz question generation. With regards to all correct answers being in the first position, this is not something that should happen and we have not been able to recreate it in testing here. If this is something you are still experiencing please contact us so we can investigate further. Also the limit to 5 questions is only per query so you can generate as many as you like per quiz/session, just only five at at time. Hope this helps. Thanks again for taking the time to review Vevox. All the best, The Vevox team
