    Product(s): Unison

    Technically solid and easy to implement but beware the cultural barriers to uptake

    Overall Comment

    This is a sollid product to use within an HE environment and is currently gaining significant market share. Their SaaS implementation and straighforward licensing make the technical side of implementation relatively straightforwads (although be prepared for the work required to ensure internal processes and culture are ready for adoption!) Functionality is solid with new features being added regularly and the UI is generally easy. It can be used in a number of different ways so it may be worth ensuring appropriate training if you want to mandate a particular workflow.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Ensure that this is a business-led not a technology-led initiative. Ensure users understand their copyright obligations when using third party content. If you're deploying on premise, beware the risks of exponential growth and the corresponding need to invest in storage.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Ease of deployment and scalability.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Sometimes new features can confuse users.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Be more aware of local sensitivities around data location

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Agree and document usage pattterns and workflows ahead of implementation

    Product(s): Panopto video content management system (VCMS), Unison

    Panopto is still at the top of the capture game!

    Overall Comment

    Great customer service. Adaptation of the new software system. New versions are slow to roll out. Different looks for different platforms/operating systems. System-wide bugs appear and aren't addressed immediately.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Use the system and customer service to the maximum. They are there to assist. Push the system and discover alternate uses for the product.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    It works. The final product can be used multiple times and archived.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Not able to edit sessions once they are archived or downloaded.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Have the same look and operations for the different operating systems. Allow editing of the archived material.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Implement more installations. Negotiate a better and longer multi-year contract.

    Integration & Deployment - Overall comment

    easy to integrate with other sources to make a complete production.
