Collect instant feedback - the secret sauce of successful events


Collecting feedback is one of the most important steps in the lifecycle of a successful event. If you are not inviting participants to chime in, proving if an event was a hit or a miss can be too subjective to make any conclusions.

Lyyti developed the Experience Value Score (EVS) to be the industry standard for measuring events. We noticed that long surveys were usually left unanswered, and we needed the feedback from the participants to understand how our events landed.

After some thought, we came to the conclusion that the only thing we really needed to know was if the event was worth the participants time. The time investment a participant makes is the most precious item of an event to evaluate.

Leveling up

The Experience Value Score tool has expanded and you can now collect feedback in different ways depending on your needs. Pulse EVS is the latest addition to the tool and we thought it would be useful to imagine different use cases for the tool to showcase its versatility.

Pulse EVS will give you instant feedback whenever you use it. Pulse EVS doesn’t need to be connected to an event, so it can be used in any situation where you need to collect feedback whether you know the attendees or not. Users connect to your feedback survey via a QR code or an online link.
