Glisser

Virtual and hybrid events platform with engagement features

About Glisser

Glisser is an enterprise Software-as-a-Service solution that engages audiences and gathers valuable data from live and virtual events and meetings. It does this by sharing presentation slides to audience smart-devices, and allowing them to participate and feedback electronically. It enables organisations to connect their face-to-face communication efforts into their marketing and management databases.

It incorporates live presentation slide sharing to audience devices, audience response systems, live polling, Twitter feeds and other audience interaction. It can be used by both individual speakers, as well as event organisers, to make presentations more engaging and collect valuable data.

The Glisser platform takes regular PowerPoint or Keynote slide decks and pushes them out live to audience mobile devices, slide-by-slide, as they are presented. It then enables members of the audience to interact with the presenter or each other, and collects their feedback. Attendees can also electronically mark-up the slides with notes, and keep them for future reference.

Glisser integrates slide-by-slide ‘like’ voting, live audience questions, Twitter feeds, as well as polling and feedback slides integrated seamlessly within the original deck. There is no need for a second monitor or technical support to switch screen feeds, as Glisser can be operated by a lone presenter from a single device. It’s that simple.

Audience members can access slides via their web browser – a solution that works across all major devices including Windows Phone and BlackBerry, without any download required.

Presenters can set up presentations in a few minutes by uploading their files at the glisser.com website, switching on the social features they want to include, and dragging-and-dropping in audience polls. They then get a unique code to send to their audiences, to use in-app or via their web browser.

Glisser was an integral part of a lively conference presentation to a room of about 100 people

Reviewed on 18/11/2017

I was able to deliver a much more engaging presentation at the software conference I was invited to speak at. I feel that Glisser made my presentation much more memorable and had helped me build my image and brand in the market I operate in.

Pros

I loved the way Glisser integrated easily with my Powerpoint presentation. I hate talks with large wordy slide decks and was looking for ways to engage my audience. I used very few slides with large print and interesting graphics. Glisser's modern look and ability to customize the view made their product look like it fit naturally into deck. I used the live audience poll feature to present interesting questions to the attendees which drew them into the content and held their focus. I received many positive comments and stayed for almost 2 hours afterward to answer questions!

The folks at Glisser are very accommodating and were happy to help me make the most of my presentation. They contacted me quickly after I signed up for the trial and showed interest in what I was doing. They answered my questions by email within hours and attentively followed up afterward.

I've had great success using Glisser at one conference. I will use it again at a second conference and I've already had a request for a third smaller and private presentation. I hope to be able to use it again for future engagements.

Cons

I compared Glisser to half a dozen competing products and found that some were easier to use and some were more difficult. I had to get used to the web interface which is intuitive enough but still a bit different than using a desktop program like PowerPoint. An add-on must be installed into PowerPoint which proved to be tricky. The slide deck must also be uploaded to the Glisser site and kept in sync before a presentation can be made.

During the presentation, the live slides must be toggled to in a browser window. The Glisser plug in makes this relatively painless but it is still an extra step to remember in the middle of your presentation. I occasionally found the uploaded poll slides appeared in a different order than in my deck - and I still haven't figured that out why. Instead, I used generic local slides and website slide with the actual poll questions.

Difficult to use

Reviewed on 21/02/2020

Pros

Initial set up was easy - there was a lot of personalisation available and I was able to incorporate lots of interaction styles. It is unique, and definitely worth paying for IF you can afford it.

Cons

It was really difficult using this with children. They didn't understand the format of it the way they did with Kahoot. This would, however, be perfect for an adult audience.

The software is clunky but acceptable for participant feedback.

Reviewed on 13/12/2017

Pros

Participant feedback is important and this is the only redeeming quality. I do enjoy knowing how people are receiving the information I am sharing with them.

Cons

The design, the lack of intuition, the constant asking for my password/making me re-register. All of these things are so frustrating!

Response from Glisser

Kyle

Thanks for your comments and apologies it didn't work out for you.

I looks like you've mainly been testing the PowerPoint add-in - this is best used in conjunction with the platform where you can see all the participant interactions being made, slide downloads, etc. The add-in alone won't show you this. We've checked you're account and it's all there!

Data protection is really important to our clients, so that does mean our password process has to be strong. In particular, where PowerPoints may contain sensitive data and could get left open on AV laptops, we do need to enforce log-outs, etc.

Thanks for taking the time to trial.

Pros

The look of the populated graphs, ease of use with cell phone, back-end data that could be pulled into client reports

Cons

That the presentation had to be shown via the browser in the Glisser system (as opposed to a PPT)

Glisser helps to take our events, whether in person or online or both, to the next level. We have seen a noticeable improvement in our understanding of how an event went thanks to Glisser.

Pros

I've been a Glisser user for some time now, and it really saved me in the switch to virtual events during COVID-19. It quickly takes events to the next level, especially virtually, to keep the audience engaged, while also helping my team collect important metrics about the event.

Cons

Getting a hang of the interface can take a second, but the customer support team is really wonderful which helped to alleviate the initial onboarding bump!
