Mentimeter is known for its polling features and it also offers some Q&A abilities. However, it is still an expensive option for a tool that only supports polling and audience questions. SlideLizard, on the other hand, is an all-in-one package which also includes live slide sharing, audience feedback and sharing of additional documents as well as the speaker's contact info.
Moreover, it's natively built for PowerPoint and therefore offers a seamless workflow for preparing and giving interactive presentations. For example, SlideLizard extends the PowerPoint presenter view (this is the window shown on your second screen to control the presentation) to show incoming audience questions and to let the speaker get a glimpse on the poll results before everyone else.GDPR compliant alternative
You may be wondering, "Is Mentimeter GDPR compliant?". While Mentimeter is a European company, it operates its technical infrastructure almost exclusively in the US. Facebook, Google and Amazon, among many other American companies, are named as data processors in the data processing statement
. So personal data of presentation participants may leave the EU and therefore pose challenges in terms of data protection. So, if you use Mentimeter, you as the presenter would need to explicitly obtain consent from your participants beforehand, in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR.
As an Austrian company, SlideLizard puts data protection first, therefore:
- your polling data will not be used for marketing purposes
- your polling data will only be stored in the EU
- your polling data will not be shared with other companies
- no IP addresses of participants are stored
