“Glisser is better than a regular video platform as it’s a branded platform with a custom look and feel so people don’t feel like they are in just another zoom meeting.
It’s helped us to impress our judges whilst also reducing the cost per judge attending by more than 80%.
Glisser is a really nice platform and is an essential part of our Awards event tech stack.”
“Glisser helps position us as a level above other similar organizations and gives a more official feel than a standard platform like Zoom or Teams.
20-40% of our judges engage with a judging session by voting, posting a comment, liking a session or downloading content.
The support they provides is excellent so I highly recommend them and look forward to working with Glisser far into the future. ”
