What is an audience response system?

An audience response system is an easy way to collect responses from groups of people instantly. Also known by its acronym ARS, as well as electronic voting system or interactive wireless voting, the system is a mix of hardware and software that allows users to submit votes on a handheld keypad. The results are compiled and then displayed instantly as well as being saved for analysis and reporting.

What can they be used for?

The Clikapad audience response system is perfect for a range of uses including adding interactivity to meetings and conferences. They can also be used to allow attendees to give feedback during staff trainingworkshops and risk assessments. Any time that you need to vote on an issue,  gather information from a large number of people or gauge the level of knowledge of a group an ARS is the perfect way to do it.

How do keypads work?

A wireless voting keypad around the size of credit card is given to each person in an audience or meeting. The pad communicates wirelessly with a connected computer via a simple USB receiver, capturing the responses to any questions with complete accuracy. This can be an extremely valuable way to gather feedback as it allows for entirely anonymous responses that are not led by the crowd. The results are also collated and displayed almost instantly – this is much faster than any manual method of voting or information gathering. The USB receiver collects the data directly from each keypad meaning that there is no need for a WiFi or internet connection

Benefits of audience response systems

The slides need to look clean and professional and you need instant access to the results. You want the audience to enjoy and engage with the process. Last but by no means least, the data must be safely stored, yet easily accessible.

More Information

CLiKAPAD systems are sold with a standard 2 year warranty which is upgradeable to 5 years. We offer online coaching that is tailored to your needs to get you up and running fast and help you make the most of your system. We also offer regular open online coaching on a range of popular topics.

If you have a problem with the system or need help with a particular function and you have an active support subscription, you can call us for advice and assistance; we can even remotely access your computer if necessary. We also offer a slide building service, whether you have a tight deadline to meet or you need new slides after a corporate rebrand, we’ll be happy to help.

CLiKAPAD is proudly manufactured in the UK and all software development is performed in house at our Hampshire office. The benefit to you is that we really do know the system inside out, which enables us to provide excellent support. By manufacturing here we are able to ensure that the highest grade component is used and that quality control is maintained which is why we are happy to offer up to a 5 year extended warranty on all CLiKAPAD hardware.

We have a range of three accessory keypads that can be used with all CLiKAPAD systems. Each can be ordered individually or you can buy them together when you purchase a system. Each accessory keypad is designed to help with the ease of operation at your event, enabling you to control your presentation remotely and safeguard your keypad inventory.

Presenter – remote control

This is a remote control for interactive presentations. Use the keypad to activate voting, jump to slides by number and even adjust your laptop volume. If more than one person is presenting, several Presenter keypads can be used.

Detector – find missing keypads

The CLiKAPAD Detector keypad helps you retrieve all keypads at the end of a meeting. Use the Detect capability to help you navigate closer to the missing keypads, using visual and audible signals to locate them, and do away with awkward searching among the debris left on the table.

Sentry – alarm your exits

The Sentry helps to guard your keypads and protect your inventory. It will alert you when a keypad is being removed from the room, by making the affected keypad beep as it passes by. For multiple exits to the meeting area, use multiple Sentries.

The CLiKAPAD plug-and-play USB is surprisingly powerful, given that it’s not much larger than a deck of cards. For larger meetings (300+ keypads) multiple receivers can be used to extend the overall range and coverage.

Each of our systems comes supplied in a high quality canvas carry case, with foam inserts to cushion and protect the equipment to prevent damage. Each case can hold up to 50 keypads plus the receiver. A carry case with a system of 50 keypads is less than 40cm long and weighs under 4kg.

Hardware

CLiKAPAD has always been proudly designed, developed and manufactured in the UK, from its very inception in 2003 and global product launch in 2004.
So convinced are we of the robust build quality of the finished CLiKAPAD that we have no hesitation in providing a standard 2 year warranty (upgradeable up to 5 years).
The keypads communicate over RF, meaning no WiFi or Internet connection is required.
