Glisser Product Update: May 2020

In the first of what will hopefully be regular product updates, I’d like to bring you up to date with what we’ve been working on and what we are planning to deliver in the next couple of months.

Andrew Walker, May 19, 2020

Before I dive into some of the details, I think it’s worth highlighting that underpinning everything we do are two underlying objectives.

  1. To provide a platform to support all your event needs now and in the future; whether virtual or, in the future, hybrid or live.
  2. To make organizing, running and attending an event as easy as possible. 

Let’s look at how we’ve been working to get closer to these objectives in the past couple of months.

Our focus recently has been on improving support for the larger number of events being held by larger companies across the globe and there are three specific features I’d like to mention. 

 

Translations 

As we increasingly support events across the globe, we are pleased to support presentations in Dutch, English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese and Spanish. We have also integrated with wordly.ai to enable subtitle and audio translation into 15 languages.

Whitelisting

As the events we support become larger, we’re pleased to announce support for event whitelisting. If you have a list of registered attendees then we can ensure that only those people enter the event. The initial version of this has to be setup by us so please contact your CS rep if you’d like to take advantage of this. 

CRM Integration

As events have become a more critical part of an organization’s customer experience, we’re pleased to announce our first integration with Salesforce - giving you the ability to transfer information such as participants and poll results into campaigns and leads. 

 

So what’s next?

There are a couple of exciting features I’d like to mention. The first is for event presenters and is the introduction of a Presenter Remote Control. This is part of an initiative to provide everything a person needs to run an event in one place -  the first version will provide key elements in one window and includes simple forward/backward buttons for slide control as well as one-click access to Q&A and other key tasks. The first release should be coming to Glisser in May.

The second is a combination of features that improve Event Navigation and smooth attendees transition from session to session. This includes the ability for you to present ‘related content’ to the audience, signpost attendees to useful content (e.g. to sponsor websites) and provide welcome event videos. All of these features should be rolling out in June and July 2020.

Beyond that, we are currently working on designs for lots more exciting features and I am looking forward to sharing those with you in future bulletins. 

Finally, If you have any suggestions on how we could improve the platform ( to support your events or make it easier) please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
