Here’s a quick interview with Jane Harnad, Manager of Events, about her experience with using Dryfta event platform for Borderless Cybersecurity Conference

What do you like best about Dryfta?

In reviewing the options, we found Dryfta to be the best solution for us. It offers all the aspects we needed, plus more. Dryfta is also very functional and easy to use. It enabled us to not only build the event website content–but allowed us to effectively communicate with attendees/prospects, offer a CfP, and coordinate registration.

Now in our third event using the Dryfta platform, we’re looking forward to using more Dryfta components, such as the Dryfta app and badging.

Quick shout-out to the Dryfta Team! Their costumer service is OUTSTANDING! They responded promptly and effectively to my questions and/or requests, which allowed me to provide the best service to our event participants.

What do you dislike, and if you have any feature requests?

A couple things that we’re still working through with the Dryfta team is gathering clean download reports via excel or other. The call for presentation downloads for example still include strange characters in places — which involve some additional manual clean efforts. In addition, streamlining the auto response email process would be helpful. They have made some efforts in this area, but more could be done.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

My organization switched over to Dryfta last year. (We just completed our first event using their platform in June.) The change was mostly due to the lack of flexibility and customization offered through our old system. We needed to find a platform that would help our event thrive, not lock it into a box.
