What customers love about Stagetimer

In an effort to find a timing solution for remote guests, I tried multiple softwares, but stagetimer.io offers the exact feature set and ability to control that I was looking for. Have used it to manage virtual speakers in Venice, Italy, and Orlando, USA, for example, and it worked flawlessly.

We have used stagetimer.io for the candidate forums and it has worked great. The timer was very easy and intuitive to use. The learning curve for first-time clock operators was literally less than a minute. It has been very useful for us and made the timing aspect of our events very professional.

We are a marketing material and content production company and primarily use the in-built production clock in vMix, but the timer and ease of access on Stagetimer is a lot better for our presenters.
