Why did you decide to use Weemss for the Creative Disruptors Awards?

We looked at quite a few awards management platforms, but we found Weemss to be the simplest to use in terms of two key benefits:

  1. Easy management of the awards for us as organizers;
  2. Simple and user-friendly interface for both the entrants and the judges;

How did Weemss Awards Management help with organizing the Awards?

We were able to get in contact via a live chat at any time when we had questions on the use of the platform by ourselves, the entrants and judges. The response was timely and the information provided was spot on.

Including internal training, how long did it take you to set-up the Awards with Weemss?

The set up for the Creative Disruptors Awards took us 2 hours in total!

What do you like most about Weemss?

We, as organizers, liked the appearance and ease of setting up the awards website. The entrants found all the information they needed on the website, while the judges found the judging process easy and time-saving.

Did you hear any feedback from the entrants, the judges?

All the entrants were happy with the platform, the judges found it incredibly easy to use and as a result judging was timely and seamless.

Would you recommend Weemss to other awards organizers, and why?

If awards organisers want an attractive awards website that is easy to configure and easy to interact with by the entrants and judges, then Weemss is the ultimate choice for their awards event.
