The Drawbacks Of Smartphone Voting

Smartphones – everyone has one these days. It may seem like common sense to encourage your event attendees to use these popular and useful cellular devices to interact with presenters during meetings and conferences. But before you risk your reputation on this “common-sense” solution, it’s important to understand all of the potential drawbacks of smartphone voting.

To be fair, there might be something to this smartphone craze – but only if your organization can afford to supply every attendee with the exact same type of device, and if your organization has the time to spend up to a year planning and training support personnel, and if your organization can afford the expense of on-site technological support. Oh, they’re great, too, if you don’t mind shelling out the extra expense for a secure, dedicated wireless network (or if you’re willing to take the chance that the cellular signals in your chosen venue will be consistent and strong enough to support all that extra network activity).

In reality, though, the drawbacks of smartphone voting remain daunting – and prohibitive to most organizations. Here are just a few of the arguments against using a smartphone-based audience polling devices:

Keep in mind, also, that when these and other things go wrong with smartphone ARS, the person they go to for answers is usually the person in charge of planning the event. In short – you. It’s just not a headache you want to deal with, which is why the smarter alternative to smartphones is the reliable, secure, efficient ARS service from Padgett Communications, the ARS provider that makes world-class client care a priority.

Competitive Team Building

Interactive audience response game shows can test a group on current and future products, company history, or important events. The game show format, while promoting team building, can also assess information retention and understanding.
Questions can each be assigned a specific point value to keep score. A countdown clock set to lively music will keep the flow of your game moving and audience members engaged as responses are collected. Track individual scores or create teams by table, department, or a demographic of your choice with our interactive audience response games.
An interactive game show format makes even the most mundane questions fun to answer - plus it seamlessly tracks all responses so you can document who knows what when. Padgett can design game board screens using your organization's colors and logos, and we can also create games based on popular television shows
