How is an Audience Keypad System Better than Smart Phones?

Audience Keypad System Smart PhonesWhile smart phones are an incredibly convenient way to stay connected without having to stay in one place, they are not necessarily best for gathering audience feedback and encouraging interaction during a meeting or event. A Padgett Communications audience keypad system provides a convenient, secure, cost-certain solution that even today’s wonderfully advanced smart phones simply can’t match.

Whereas smart phones and similar devices are only as useful as the associated wireless signal, the audience keypad system from Padgett operates on a secure, dedicated radiofrequency. All of the apparent convenience of using smart phones as an audience response system (ARS) can be wiped away in an instant if a Wi-Fi connection goes bad. And who hasn’t experienced spotty wireless signals in public settings, or even semi-private settings like closed meetings? Here are just a few potential problems that can plague a smart phone system:

  • Poor Internet connectivity
  • Incompatible operating systems from phone to phone
  • Varied price packages for text messaging
  • Potential for security breaches and incorrect login code entry by attendees
  • Delayed results because of a lagging or overloaded signal
  • Unreliable cellular signals
  • Attendees might be distracted by emails and smart phone apps
