Explain GmbH, founded in 2004, is a creative company based in Karlsruhe, Germany. They are Germany’s leading company for professional presentations adapting the EXPLAIN PRESENTORIC MODEL. They develop content, create presentation slide designs and empower speakers through coaching and training, as well as by providing event support and expertise.

The Challenge

EXPLAIN were looking for a polling tool to use in-house. As a creative company, EXPLAIN set a high standard for the right solution to meet. The prerequisites included an integration with Microsoft PowerPoint, web app functionality and a customisable visual look and feel to match EXPLAIN branding. In this specific instance EXPLAIN were looking for a polling solution to use for their own Christmas event to get feedback from employees about their favourite client projects from the year.

EXPLAIN were adamant that the solution they wanted would not force participants to download an app to participate. To make voting simple to understand for attendees and to maximise participation, EXPLAIN wanted the polling answers for each poll to be visible on the main audience display in the venue and on each participants mobile device.

The Solution

EXPLAIN trialled several different software options but chose Vevox as it was the only solution that could meet their exacting standards. Vevox’s native integration with Microsoft PowerPoint allowed EXPLAIN full control over the visual and functional design of their polling slides, understandably something that was of high importance, given their expertise in this field.

As Vevox is accessible via a web app, attendees to the Christmas event could participate with ease using the web browser on their own mobile devices, by simply entering a 9-digit id.

The Results

EXPLAIN had a quick turnaround time to find a solution for their event and found Vevox were immediately on hand to help, Beate Rosner, Executive Assistant at EXPLAIN says, “I called the number on the Vevox website and reached someone straightaway. The Vevox team were very friendly and quickly helped us to set up our account via email.”
EXPLAIN used Vevox with great success at their Christmas staff event.

Beate concludes, “Vevox is self-explanatory which was a great help for the set up of the event, it also really helped increase staff participation at the event. The PowerPoint Add-in gives us more flexibility with our slide designs when using polls which is a huge benefit, I would definitely recommend Vevox to others.”
