We used Ex Ordo to manage paper submissions & review, and the online conference programme for the 14th International Open & User Innovation Conference held in Boston 1-3 August 2016. The platforms multifaceted functions made it an essential tool for the conference. We found the communication center and conference management tools especially helpful. Looking forward to using it again in 2018!
Submission process is pretty fast. Admin dashboard is user-friendly. The support is excellent. They take you very seriously. We loved working with them for our summit.
The Ex Ordo system is intuitive and easy to access, which on its own saved us time in planning out event. However the fantastic support team also made the process quick and enjoyable. In the end we saved many hours in abstract handling and program generation
I found working with Ex Ordo putting together my first big international conference to be extremely helpful and could not have done it without the software and the extremely helpful support staff.
I just wanted to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to you, Jelena and the team. As you know, this was the first time that we had used an online abstract submission and review process. With your support, it was a really enjoyable experience and we were delighted to receive over 50% more abstracts than for our last conference in 2014! The software is user friendly and easy to navigate considering the complexity of the information and processes involved.
Above all, what has made this experience stand out as a positive one is the customer support that has always been on hand from you and the team. The training phone calls were really well timed, informative and made a brand new process feel approachable and achievable. The ongoing support via email has always been so useful - you and Jelena have always been quick to respond, friendly, and really well informed about our exact questions and needs.
It's been a really good first experience with Ex Ordo, and I hope we'll have the opportunity to work together again in the future.
Ex Ordo has been an amazingly useful tool for our conference, both for abstract submission and the reviewing process, as well as for sending out group mailings to authors. Ex Ordo has a really user-friendly, intuitive interface which is very important as many of our presenters have disabilities. The support is fantastic - you get to speak to a small, friendly team of real people and they always reply quickly and do all they can to help. We particularly like the fact that the team consider our issues when making updates and changes. We couldn’t ask for better service - thank you!
Ex Ordo helped us take our student-led conference to the next level, by streamlining the registration process and implementing a transparent and fair abstract submission and review process. All of this was achieved thanks to the easy to use and professional looking Ex Ordo online platform.
We were extremely happy with Ex Ordo and as first-time conference organizers we profited enormously from the user-friendly system and the experience of the Ex Ordo support team. Whenever we had a question or a problem, everyone at Ex Ordo went out of their way to help us in a very quick and professional way. The whole conference would have been much less of a success without Ex Ordo.
We had an extraordinary success with our EUSARF Conference 2016 in Oviedo (Spain) with more than 550 delegates and more than 430 papers. Thanks to the Ex Ordo system we could manage everything very easily and I would remark the support of the Ex Ordo staff, very clear information and very fast in their answers and advices. In my opinion it is an excellent system allowing the management of submissions and reviewers, but also the design of the program and even the book of abstracts. A very efficient and friendly-use system. They really were an important part of our success!.
We used Ex Ordo for our international conference and were very happy with the product. All users were able to register and submit without any difficulties and it made the reviewing process and managing the abstracts very simple. I found the level of personal communication from Ex Ordo to be excellent, and they were readily available to deal with any queries immediately. I will use Ex Ordo again and recommend it to anyone hosting an event.
We had a very short time to bring the conference together and had advisory board members from four different countries. Ex Ordo's system saved us hundreds of hours.
Thank you to all of you for your hard work. We couldn't have done it without you! Our meeting was a great success! I, for one, found the system easy to navigate and was impressed with the features. So again, thank you!
The Ex Ordo tool made the conference organisation so much simpler with respect to calls for papers, reviewing, acceptance, registration and programme creation. In addition the wonderful support and gentle reminders from ex ordo staff were just as important and I always got timely replies from start to finish. I highly recommend to anyone.
Thanks to Ex Ordo, we could use our energy on the content of the conference and developing our theme rather than do this tedious (but necessary) work of answering emails and making sure the ball hasn’t dropped
Ex Ordo provided a flexible and effective platform to acquire our abstract submissions, evaluate them, and organize them into a great program. The support team was extremely responsive to all of our needs. I would definitely use their product again.
Ex Ordo’s system is a remarkable productivity tool that allows conference organizers to spend more time on the program and significantly less time administering. One of my favorite features was the printed program book option. I wouldn’t dream of organizing another large conference without this incredible abstract management system.
I chose the Ex Ordo system due to its broad functionality, intuitive interface, and high level of support. As an academic without much experience running conferences, I knew that ongoing support would be a critical factor. And the Ex Ordo team exceeded my expectations, working with me to meet my needs and help make the conference a success.
CASI had a great experience with Ex Ordo and were very happy with the outcome. The system made handling abstracts, papers and emailing authors so much easier and our Chairs were especially impressed. The best part was the customer service and how fast the response time was - almost instantaneous. Will definitely consider Ex Ordo again in the future. Thanks for everything!
As a first time conference chair... Choosing the Ex Ordo platform for conference general website, paper management (submission, review, decision, and notification) and conference registration was an excellent personal choice. The tools and reports proved extremely valuable and easy to manage, and the support staff was phenomenal and always ready to assist. A big part of the conference success is credited to Ex Ordo.
We found the system straightforward to set up, and, together with our submitters and reviewers, found it easy to use, saving everyone lots of time and energy! The service from the people at Ex Ordo was second to none, they were quick at getting back to us and extremely helpful with whatever we asked of them.
Ex Ordo has helped us stay on top of things and allowed the organisation committee to concentrate on the technical work related to the conference rather than on the organisational details. The tool presents a minimalistic set of available options to simplify our life, while all the non-standard options are still available in the background. The support team is simply fantastic, always helping to reduce our workload.
We could not have been happier with using Ex Ordo in our abstract submission and reviewing process…. They were also extremely responsive in answering any questions that rose along the way. We received positive feedback from our reviewers in their experience using the system. Terrific customer service and personal attention to our project made us feel valued as customers.
Using the system as administrator, author and reviewer, I found uploading and reviewing the papers as well as managing the whole process very efficient; communicating with authors was excellent using very elegant fonts and layout. Fantastic service and platform, highly recommended.
Ex Ordo provides a great interface and a handy and complete management tool for abstract submissions. Reviewing papers is easy and very efficient.
Ex Ordo has been a huge help. I can greatly recommend the support where all replies have been nearly instantaneous, and the experienced Ex Ordo team provided invaluable advice.
Ex Ordo provides the best user interface, communication tools and complete conference management from recruiting reviewers to downloading presentation files during the conference that I've experienced.
Ex Ordo made the creation of the timetable feel like ‘a walk in the park’ and the wonderful help from the excellent Support Team made conference-organising much easier.
The experience of organising this conference through Ex Ordo was worth every penny we paid for the service. The team provided expert support throughout the process, which makes the decision to adopt the platform much less of a ‘shot in the dark’ than other platforms you might be considering. Trust me, you’ll be happy you went with this platform.
The Ex Ordo platform delivered just what we expected: a simple, effective way to manage the workflow of an academic conference. In addition, support was top class. Overall, Ex Ordo saved us lots of time and effort. Highly recommended.
Ex Ordo have created a very comprehensive system that includes all the necessary functions to run the conference very efficiently. The system is very easy to use and can be adapted to a particular conference’s requirements. It’s being constantly improved in order to cover more conference organiser’s needs.
We studied several academic conference management systems, ... Ex Ordo offered the best combination of features, functionality and ease of use. Support is outstanding, as are the slick interface and fluid design.
Ex Ordo’s platform is elegant, efficient and intuitive! The Ex Ordo team has provided us with an amazing customer support, despite the time difference their response has been always prompt and effective.
We use Ex Ordo on all our research conferences. It means we can now provide the organiser with a complete end-to-end solution for their entire conference. Having control on the entire conference process means we have fewer surprises, which helps the event runs smoothly. The support team at Ex Ordo are quick to respond and always eager to help me deliver the best experience for my clients.
A very user friendly system which allows for the efficient management of a high volume of activity and abstracts. ... The fast response rate to my queries and requests was priceless.
As a contributor and reviewer, Ex Ordo ticks all the boxes ... functionality, usability, and robustness. Obviously very well designed both in terms of backend and frontend ... the overall experience is refreshingly simple
The guys at Ex Ordo really are knowledgeable and intuitive, adding value to their service. They offer a creative approach with real attention to detail on logistics and best of all, is their can do attitude.
