Examples

By using TomVote® you get a wholy new feeling of voting.

City council meeting

Not all members of the city council attended the meeting. Because there is an urgent need to vote on an important issue, all those absent must also be included. The clerk creates a vote and sends the generated link to all deputies by email. Those absent will be informed briefly by telephone and asked to vote using the link provided in the email. The result can be recorded in the protocol just a few minutes later. From time to time the city council uses the password function to categorically exclude repeated voting.

Hotel

While the guests' bill is being prepared, they are handed a tablet with which they can quickly and intuitively rate their stay in the hotel. As part of the hotel review, guests can answer questions about service, ambience, cleanliness, friendliness of the staff, variety of the breakfast buffet and the price-performance ratio simply by moving the slider. The comment function in the tool offers not only the rating but also the possibility of giving detailed feedback. The hotel uses the feedback and ratings for team meetings. According to the TomVote® evaluation, the distribution of tips can also lead to more motivation in the individual departments of the hotel with a quota.

Pitch

At the end of a pitch, the favorite should be voted on. In every question of the vote, the name of the company that is introducing itself is given. Using the slider, the relevant criteria are voted on as a percentage. 1. Appreciation of the idea, 2. future opportunities, 3. economic prospects. At the end of the event, the winner of the competition can be chosen. The comment function was used by some participants and provides the young startups with very valuable, anonymous feedback on the further development of the idea and the presentation of their company.

Press / online newspaper

A newspaper wants to attract more users to the website of its online publication and at the same time interact more with users. To do this, the publisher now uses TomVote polls. Users are asked to vote on a current topic by clicking on it and to contribute suggestions and remarks via the comment function. In another variant, the newspaper uses TomVote as an evaluation tool for events that are promoted in the newspaper. Readers can use the slider to give their opinion on the artists or athletes. For this type of voting, the newspaper uses an "embedded vote" that is carried out directly in the publisher's interface. The vote is designed in the corporate design of the newspaper, which guarantees a professional appearance.

Evaluation of proposed solutions

In the advanced phase of a mediation solution proposals are collected. When evaluating the proposals, it can be very helpful if the process is secret, especially with a high number of participants. TomVote® is a significant facilitator here, because voting is completely anonymous. The results are also clearly graphically processed and can be called up at any time. In this way, the situation is clearly presented for what it really is. A good basis for problem solving has thus been created.

Evaluation of various suggestions

During a workshop, the participants developed numerous ideas. On the basis of a short vote in which these ideas are integrated as graphics, an internal survey should now be used to determine which of them are most important to the participants and in which order they should be implemented. Based on the vote, the exact percentages for each idea are given. Thanks to the TomVote® evaluation, it is clear at a glance which ideas achieve the highest average approval and should therefore be implemented first. The joint decision also strengthened team cohesion among the employees. And because every idea received attention in this way, motivation was also increased.

Target group survey using social media

A global company wants to obtain customer feedback on several variants of a new product. Via social networks, it calls on its followers to take part in the TomVote® vote. The numerous followers have one week to weight their opinion on the product versions differently based on their answers. In this way, the company receives differentiated feedback and can determine even before the product launch which variant will be best received on the market and whether users can be won over for online voting. Since the company attaches great importance to its recognition, they have TomVote® integrated into their internal IT system as a Whitelabel-Version.

Internal elections

Elections of the board of directors are due in the association. With TomVote™, the creation of the election and the voting is very easy: A vote with one question per candidate is created. Each voter assigns a percentage value to the candidate and thus expresses his weighted yes / no. Several rounds of voting among members are thus carried out in a time-saving manner. Members who are absent can also vote online during the general meeting. They can access the vote in the browser on their devices. Each person entitled to vote is given a random password to ensure that they can vote securely. It may be requested from the election committee before the election. It will be given to all voters present during the meeting. The password can be used for several app votes, only once per vote.

Seminars – Evaluation

A training institute conducts numerous seminars and training courses during the year. So far, the questionnaires have been evaluated in the same way. With the voting tool TomVote®, the institute now conducts the survey of the participants much easier and faster. The evaluation of the results of the seminar is immediately available to the institute through the tool and has already been graphically processed - an invaluable added value. Each vote can also be revised and reused using the copy function. Thanks to TomVote, unnecessary paperwork is now avoided. The company saves a lot of time, both when creating votes and when evaluating the results.

Training company

A training company organizes numerous seminars and training courses. Each seminar participant receives access to voting via QR or link on the back of their seminar document. This contains the seminar title and date. With regard to the courses, the participant votes on, for example, practical relevance, the trainer's rhetorical ability, methodological competence, presentation and specialist knowledge. This evaluation is collected in Excel tables and can be used to improve the courses. Votes on the satisfaction regarding the training, hotel, seminar rooms, catering are mandatory.

Customer satisfaction in the service area

A restaurateur wants to show his guests that their opinion and satisfaction are important to him. The service in his restaurant is very important to him and he is always looking to optimize it and to obtain criticism and reviews. It's very easy with TomVote online voting. He creates a vote with questions about customer satisfaction and makes them available to his guests in the restaurant to answer. Customers love the intuitive way of expressing their opinions. In addition, the restaurateur shows that he is a self-confident entrepreneur who cares about the opinion of the guests and that he is not afraid of criticism. The expressed interest in their views makes his guests feel valued and included.

Support for HR – decisions

Several applicants are available for a position. For the interviews, TomVote is used to create a questionnaire, that should provide information about which applicant is best suited for the position to be filled. Instead of hours of discussion about the individual applications among the recruiters, each participant in the vote can now express his or her opinion easily and quickly using the exact percentage. This vote can be completed within a few minutes. The company saves time and resources when it comes to job interviews and receives a traceable and assessable voting result for each applicant.

Vote regardless of location

How do you bring several teams from different cities together in one meeting? The teams take part in a joint meeting via Teamviewer. They are in conversation and discussion with each other over the phone. After the topics to be decided on have been presented, everyone takes part in the online voting via TomVote. The initiator can limit the time window as required so that decisions can be made promptly. The results are available immediately after the end of the vote and can be shared and analyzed by the teams via email or social networks. This location-independent coordination makes it much easier for all employees to make important decisions together.

Evaluation of a kitchen studio

A kitchen studio receives around 100 customer ratings over the course of a six-month period - always with the same TomVote® survey. Every six months, an email with a link to a TomVote is sent to customers. Here, criteria such as advice, atmosphere, prices, friendliness and likelihood of recommendation are voted on. The questionnaire evaluation shows customer satisfaction and is made available to other customers on the company's website. The anonymity of voting helps participants to provide honest feedback. This allows the company to determine customer satisfaction over a long period of time without conducting an explicit customer survey or expensive market research.

Satisfaction in a free church

A church conducts quarterly votes on satisfaction regarding worship services and other events. Questions are asked about whether events were well-timed and well-organized. Guests and visitors are also invited to give feedback. In this way, the church and the organizers get an overview of necessary changes and at the same time experience motivation through praise. Further possibilities of a vote would be, for example, voting on planned changes in the management team, a request for approval on participation in a television service or the implementation of a radio service. It is also possible to vote in the management committee on subletting or to carry out confirmatory elections for senior employees.

Deciding on an outfit for celebrations

A woman would like to accompany her husband to an official, ceremonial appointment and needs a new outfit for the occasion. She conveniently orders a selection of dresses online and tries them on. She takes a photo of each look. She then creates a TomVote and adds the pictures of the fitting into the vote and sends them to her friends, sister and husband via a link and lets everyone vote on the different outfits. The comment function can be used to make decisions more meaningful and to give further tips on the style. So TomVote is also perfect as a tool for making private decisions.

Deciding on a design line

A company is planning to launch a new design line on the market, for which an internal departmental employee survey is to be carried out first. The images of the various design drafts can easily be included in the vote. After the person in charge has forwarded the TomVote® vote to the employees, they submit their assessment of each concept online via smartphone or tablet and thus make a quick and easy pre-selection. Drafts that were voted positively receive a fine assessment according to the TomVote® concept of percentage voting. If all drafts get an approval rate of more than fifty percent in the survey, this is a sign that so far no draft has clearly convinced the team.

Decision aid for consultants

A consultant is at an impasse advising his clients. Feedback and customer satisfaction are very important to him. He urgently needs help to get another perspective on the problem. He asks the participants of a workshop to what percentage they would decide in favor of the solution approaches that have been worked out. Within the vote, the persons in charge transmit exact percentages to him and thereby clarify in a simple but highly efficient way how much they stand behind the possible ways. In this way, they make a firmer and more conscious decision. This survey can also be repeated to see how opinions on the decisions have worsened or improved over the course of implementation.

Portal/blog survey

A company would like to carry out votes on different topics on a weekly basis. Instead of just being able to select „I like“ or „I don’t like“, the customer can respond in a much more differentiated manner by telling the provider his individual and percentage assessment. This information is immediately available to the company. If, for example, the question on customer satisfaction is answered with "Yes", this initially sounds like a success, but if you look at the percentage value for this statement, for example 60%, it becomes clear that there is even room for improvement here. The company has encountered a problem via TomVote that it would have missed  in a pure „yes/no questioning“.
