Live Voting Support & Audience Response Rentals


Do-It-Yourself ARS rentals are simple and affordable. A blue box (or more) arrives on site with everything you need:

  • ARS clickers (with backup)
  • Receivers (with backup)
  • USB cables and extension cords
  • Return label

All you have to do is download the software and perhaps signup for a bit of training, if you feel you don’t have the time to explore everything by yourself. Check out the contents of the box below.

iPad Rentals

To engage your audience with our mobile polling/texting app, CloudVOTE, it’s best if you user our dedicated iPads because we can:

  • Ensure full battery
  • Limit distracting apps
  • Force a specific Wi-Fi connection
  • Allow for a consistent experience

We can make sure that they are always charged, have backups for the unexpected, and limit the activity on them to your business and not games, email, or football-watching.

CloudVOTE DYI Mobile Polling

Our CloudVOTE mobile polling service streams your slides directly to the audience and offers single-vote, multi-vote, and free-form text answers. You have an option to do the polling anonymously, or with two kinds of participant lists – free-form, optional entry, or restrictive, secure list where only those who need to sign in are allowed to vote.
The instructions for the audience to join a session couldn’t be easier: “Go to, click on Join Session, and enter the Join Code”

Audience Response Software

Prepare and Test Before the Event

Download for Free

Our EZ-VOTE Connect Suite comes with multiple apps that suit your style and can integrate with PowerPoint, or Prezi, let you play a Jeopardy-like game, or do town hall-style voting quickly and efficiently. Download it for free and test the functionality. You can even request a demo kit to test the hardware – that’s free, as well!

Request Demo/Training

Live voting events are fluid. Be prepared! See how the software works – schedule a demo with us and we’ll walk you through it. That way, you know what you’re getting into. You’ll see how easy the software is, but if DIY isn’t for you, we can still send our staff to your event and make sure everything integrates into your event production smoothly.

Qualifications & Capabilities

Live Surgery with Polling

Every year in January, a group of surgeons escapes to beautiful, warm Miami for some R&R and educational session where live surgery streamed to the screen is supplemented by a display of real-time polling and results of questions from the panel of experts.

National Sales Meeting

One of the Big 4 (accounting firms) hired us to do their worldwide partner meeting in Orlando. The questions answered at the meeting literally helped save the company $1,000,000 when they decided on cutting certain costs over the next 4 years.

International Elections

During this annual event, we travel to the next location of a major worldwide charity, where we provide live voting support in electing the top-ranking officers. We process thousands of votes in a matter of seconds to deliver accurate election results, as well as impromptu amendments (and amendments to amendments) with ease. Accuracy is verified by a review panel and submitted in near-real-time to the election board. It doesn’t hurt that the client saved $40,000 by cutting the meeting by one day due to speedy electronic election process.

Remote-Controlled Multisite Training

A major east-coast bank hired us to provide a multi-city audience response solution for their sales meeting. Our representative in each location set up and connected the audience response system to the dedicated internet lines for a flawless presentation with competitive questions, where teams were playing against each other as part of a team-building exercise.
