"Smooth, Intuitive , Responsive"

Pros: Intuitive to use, smooth transitions through sections and easy to manage administration. The customer service response for questions is a great tool.

Cons: I think provided Firebird continue to evolve to and work with suppliers and users to improve the product they will be a industry leader.

"Superb submission system"

Comments: I managed to change the way we accept presentations for our call for paper conferences by using Firebird rather than manually collecting them. This made the whole process quicker and easier for my colleagues and saved time.

Pros: I didn't need any formal training when using this software, I just logged in and clicked around for a while to get to know my way around and found it very easy and simple to use. Anytime I did come across something that I didn't know how to do or struggled with the live support chat was so helpful it meant that the problem was resolved quickly and I was able to carry on with what I was doing. It's great being able to customize pages so easily to get them on brand and simple for the submitter or reviewer to use. The Firebird team are great at taking on board any feedback we give and implementing where they can.

Cons: The Firebird team are constantly working to improve the software which is great but does sometimes mean that switches or settings are moved from where they normally are but it doesn't take long to find them.

"Firebird"

Comments: Overall I am happy with firebird. It helps me with my events and I can always go back to it if I have lost my downloaded copy.

Pros: I like that you can easily locate all of the papers that have been submitted easily.

Cons: I did not like that I cant assign papers to authors by typing in the paper reference number.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for the review!

You can assign papers to authors by using the advanced filter in the assignment screen to enter the paper reference numbers.

Please contact our support team for more help.

"Firebird Review"

Comments: Overall it was a very positive experience and we wouldn't definitely revisit firebird in the future when we have a few more events that would need to use a system like this.

Pros: One thing that we really loved about the software was the team, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] were available whenever we needed anything and anytime we had an issue they were able to solve it and clearly show me where I was going wrong. It is a great system and is already able to do so much and by the looks of it, it is continually growing and adapting to users needs everyday. It is not rigid in its development in the way some other systems we have used have been.

Cons: Although a fantastic system sometime it did seem that the steps to do things were more complicated than they needed to be. This is likely because the way it was set up then allowed you to do 50 other things as well but sometimes this meant I couldn't easily see what to do and have to reach out to the team.

"Unique full-grown content review system"

Comments: Stunning support, always on and fully involved with the customers' objectives. This made the difference in comparison with many other event tech companies I have seen.

Pros: The fact that it exists: not many systems can do real content review as Firebird does while keeping it simple for all involved. The system is easy-to-use for all involved in the review process and has a useful dashboard.
The flexibility of it: the system was fully configured to review close to 2000 content items for 12 international events submitted by 500 different companies.

Cons: The interface could be more intuitive, I learned that this is underway. Automated emails to alert submitters for rework or validation would also be useful.
