Pros: The dashboard is intuitive and the export process is easy and painless. Very conveinent for sharing data and tracking my team's progress! We have a great account manager who is responsive and attentive. Whether it is just experiential feedback or finding a solution to make the program run smoother, Clare always is willing to hop on a call!

Cons: At times the app freezes with high volume use. Can be limited by the number of iPads available if an event is very busy, but its not really an issue.

Overall: Simple file of all captured leads for each event, 100% accurate and therefore so easy to use, follow up and track.

Pros: Simple to use. User friendly. Support.

Cons: The only thing we would like to be able to do is to access the date live at events through the device.

Overall: The software is simple, effective and easy to use. Exactly what we wanted from Akkroo. Since buying the software we have had regular contact and check in emails from our Customer Success Manager which have been helpful and reassuring, they are always on hand to support whenever needed even with our colleagues overseas in different time zones. New features have been added since we started using the software which shows Akkroo is constantly improving.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would highly recommend this software as a great lead generation tool, we have made huge improvements on how we collect and analyse our leads and opportunities.

Pros: Dashboard easy to use
Team is always very helpful and responsive
Everything is stored in one place

Cons: There is no real time calculation of volumes so I end up sometimes having more customers booked for an event than I can accommodate.

There are a few limitations in terms of design (adding more images or backgrounds) but this is secondary

Overall: Using Akkroo has been great, it helped me deliver better customer experience and saved me lots of hours of manual work (adding data on a spread sheet from an inbox). The team has been brilliant and are there every time I contact them with my mental requests. The dashboard is very easy to use.

Recommendations to other buyers: thank you all for your help guys!

Pros: The surveys are easy to set on the dashboard.
Setting templates and replicating existing ones is very helpful when handling multiple surveys for the same country.
I like the option of hidden fields with default values, also the simple integration with Salesforce.

Cons: I feel it's missing some basic features, like the possibility to manage your own 10 devices (delete option only available through support).
I also don't like that there is no admin dashboard included in the initial price package and additional/account access has to be handled through support.

Pros: The app is simple and easy to use! I was really please with how easy it was to export the data once we arrived back from a show. It was great that we could edit the look of the form to represent our brand. The customisable features were ideal.

Cons: I am unsure as to whether it was my own error or an app error, however, I did experience one issue with the app not working when there was no WiFi. However, the support team were very quick to help, so it was barely an issue.

Much better than anything we have used in the past

Pros: simple to use and can be used offline

Cons: only can be used on iPad... we have lots of tablets we would have liked to use it with. Also, you have to sync the device every time you make a small change

Overall: Big improvement on the use of other lead capture methods. We are still getting used to it and understanding its full capabilities but seems to offer everything we need. The only negative at this point is that it struggles to sync without a top notch internet connection so we were unable to sync most our devices till we made it back to the office (this meant lots of people will have received their follow up email rather late!). The team kept to their word and had someone onsite for our first event which was a god send as we had some trouble with initial use. Good response rate on emails although some of the online instructions offered to resolve problems could be clearer.

Looking forward to continue using it!

Akkroo gives us the flexibility we need to capture leads efficiently and the support is great.

Pros: easy to use
possible to fully customize
flexibility to change per event
overwork which is done
full integration with pardot/SFDC

Cons: not possible to see on which lead you make a comment (work in progressp)
structure of uploading PDF (work in progress)
link to a central database (ex box folder) would be nice so we don't have to upload each time and you always have the updated PFD
time consuming to synchronize PDF folders

Pros: Ease of use and exporting of data. Better now that we can go back and add notes after we have registered someone.

Cons: Sometimes it takes a long time to sync the data or it has to be done multiply times.

Overall: We have been using the system for about 18 months for exhibitions in the UK and makes data capture easier

Recommendations to other buyers: Previously when asked for feedback this has been taken on board and for a team based in France it was nice to meet some of the Akkroo team at The France Show in January Please note that we are a property management and real estate, kitchen and planning company but I can't tick more than one box, which is something I can do on Akkroo! We use it 5 times a year.

Superb support and great software!

Pros: The flow and logic of the tool help us be more organized, thorough and responsive. A plus that I can build out the forms and email responses myself (well, with a helpful nudge and coaching from my amazing Akkroo Team)!

Cons: As soon as the full feature set can be used on Android devices my rating will go to 5 stars. We invested today because we understand and see value in the solution as is and the product roadmap. I appreciate the lock down of the event form once the event is live and in use. But, it does make for challenging times if you have not tested properly. I guess that could be a pro as well, test early and often so you are not sidelined by mistakes and last minute fixes.

Pros: How it's so easy to build a custom form. Really self-explanatory.

Cons: The way the data exports when you've used the business card transcription. Kind of doubles the data which leaves you with some manual work.

Overall: I love working with a young dynamic team like the Akkroo-team. They're brilliant and they definitely put user (and customer) experience above all. Absolutely no complaints.

We enjoy using Akkroo and are excited to receive the newest release

Pros: I love the way that we have the flexibility to construct fields. We can design our own layout and add listings. Delighted with the software and its made my job a lot easier. Still sad though that I have to purchase and extra license should I wish to upload to Salesforce. This should be in the package.

Overall: Quick, easy and good collection of business leads data

Experience has been great so far!

Pros: The ease of use for this app is the most favourable thing about it. we have implemented it across the whole of our business.

Cons: Security updates and having to update it regularly. Trying to pass this information across 48 sites and over 300 staff gets quite difficult.

Has removed an enormous amount of hassle and manual work from our event lead capture process.

- Akkroo team have been very open to feedback from our team, and have actively implemented feature suggestions where appropriate.

Cons: - Sales teams complain it's not as easy as scanning a badge
- Customer facing interface is not as attractive (out of the box) as perhaps it could be
- Guestlist feature is useful, but still clunky

Excellent, the support team is very helpful and accommodating.

Pros: It's very intuitive. That you can take pictures, it would also be great if you could upload pictures from your phone gallery.

Cons: The camera and scanning functionality that is not available on Android would be helpful.

It can be difficult to manage events/forms within the app when you have 150 users in the field but we have identified some workarounds and options.

Pros: Its easy to use and navigate the system. New developments and new functionality is added to the system regularly.

Cons: There is nothing that I particularly don't like about the system. It would be good if there were some best practice guidelines that help us to create emails and options for the form to get the most out of the system.

Pros: The software is very simple to use. Feedback from the sales team found preference to the business card capture facility within the app made exhibition data capture so much easier.

Cons: Its sometimes frustrating when you have a template set up and through user error this disappears and you have to then start a fresh.

Overall: The easy data caputre means we are able to distribute leads to the sales team promptly so they could respond within 48 hours of us attending an event.

I find Akroo really simple to use from form creation through to exporting.

Thank you for leaving us a review , it's great to hear you are enjoying Akkroo and how customisable our lead capture forms are. In regards to the layout of the form builder, you do have the ability to move the questions closer together and also to match the colours of the form to your branding. Your customer success manager will be in touch to discuss this further with you!

Pros: Statistics and search data functionality

The ability to search any data captured, across all events for us was important. Our sales team constantly ask for data as soon as it's captured. Search makes it easy.

Cons: Lack of text/colour customization, no Android app. Android is a massive part of our business, and we're limited to iOS, for now.

Overall: Ease of use, great portal and functionality

Great customer service, and a ver useful app;.

Pros: Akkroo is very quick and easy to use, which makes it popular with our sales teams. The marketing team find it easy to customise for each event, which has made it much more effective as a lead capture tool. It's also easy to allocate and track leads back at the office.

Cons: It has been more expensive to implement than our previous solution

Pros: The system is intuitive and ease of use and the gathering of prospects information at an event is awesome. The downloading of the names to an excel spreadsheet makes it easy to send out marketing materials and follow-up emails.

Cons: We have had issues with our own internal fire walls and downloading the information from Akkroo, but we will use the software outside of the office and then have no issues.

For corporate reasons, we have been asked to use Akkroo.

Pros: My favorite thing about the software is how easy it is to set up forms and then change. Before I used to have to send my changes to a third-party and hope they followed through properly the first time. Now, I have the ability to this myself so there is no more confusion.

Cons: The only thing is that a few employees like Android and only being able to do manual entries for the time being is not their favorite thing.
