Event Tech of the Week: @Meetooapp
Today, we’re talking about: Meetoo
Company/Tool Name: Meetoo, Powered by Lumi
We spoke to Shelley Brown, Head of Sales, Meeting Solutions
What is the “problem” that your tool seeks to solve?
Meetoo addresses the problem of employee and audience disengagement. A lack of enthusiasm, attention or commitment from individuals in meetings is an increasingly significant problem as our collective patience and attention spans shorten. Meetoo does this while also documenting meeting activities and recording the interactions taking place. Meetoo makes it easy to prove meeting ROI and document outcomes.
What is the best audience for this tool? Corporate events? Social? Other? Large? Small?
Our solution is not limited to one sector of our industry and is designed to serve everyone easily and equally. If you are hosting a meeting of any size and purpose, there is a place for Meetoo. We hate to skirt the question though so let us narrow it down just a little bit. If you’re tired of boring meetings, didactic presentations, and loss of efficiency in your programs, then Meetoo will serve you well.
What does your tool help event planners do better?
Meetoo allows planners to modernize the traditional meeting setting by helping their presenters involve the audience in the conversation. Where before you may have had 1 presenter and 100 participants, now you have 101 people having a real conversation – using mobile technology as a conduit. For planners who have been tasked with increasing active engagement in their content-based sessions, Meetoo provides an affordable and easy-to-implement solution.
How is your tool different from/better than the competition?
Traditional audience response methods existed long before mobile devices, but as our industry (and our cultures) become increasingly mobile, it is clear that focusing the audience response experience to be more mobile-friendly is a crucial step for growth. Meetoo is unique among mobile audience response platforms because we are able to combine what we feel are the most necessary features of a truly effective tool.
- Real-time Mobile Polling – Truly instant, synchronous polling whereby the user does not need to do a thing! Other than select an option of course.
- Real-time Mobile Messaging – Meetoo allows presenters to enhance Q&A and collect open ended feedback from everyone in the room using the message board with likes and moderation.
- Free PowerPoint Integration – The PowerPoint add-on with Meetoo allows presenters to create and run their questions without ever having to leave PowerPoint. It is one of the first of its kind and offers true PowerPoint integration like never before.
- Meetoo is also produced by Lumi, a global company that has been leader the audience response technology since 1991. Experience counts for a lot and Lumi has it in spades!
What is the single coolest feature of your product?
To reference the above, I really believe the true PowerPoint integration with Meetoo is the biggest game changer. It’s unique among the competition in that questions, results, and charts are completely customizable in the PowerPoint platform offering a new level of “ease of use” for new users and ensuring that this is not the type of tool that requires users to completely turn their presentation styles upside down. Simply put, with the PowerPoint integration, users just simply incorporate the interaction into what they’re already doing.
Anything else we need to know?
Did you know: QuickMobile, the global leader in enterprise mobile event apps, recently incorporated Meetoo’s functionality as “Live Insights” and integrated it into their mobile event app offering? David Smith, CEO of QuickMobile had this to say: “It’s the first of its kind to increase attendee engagement in a mobile event app. It even enables people in different locations to feel as if they are a part of the same meeting, allowing everyone to get involved in a way that is easily manageable for organizers. It’s a great way to change a group dynamic, promote meeting collaboration, and action outcomes.”
Using Meetoo doesn’t have to start and end with the Meetoo app. We’ve made it possible for clients and technology partner to integrate Meetoo into other platforms as well. Allowing planners to streamline the attendee experience and limit the number of apps or solutions they need to access at any given event.
This weekly series spotlights a new tech tool that is designed to help make planning events much more seamless. Whether it’s using event software to track every detail from start to finish or mobile apps that deliver content to attendees’ fingertips, these technologies allow planners to divert their stress to more critical issues like deciding which napkin color looks best.
