There's no app to install. Populy is based in the cloud, so your judges just have to click a link in their email to start voting right away.
Rather than write out ballots and coordinate scoring, let Populy do all of work. Group Judges and Competitors based on their expertise, assign specific judging criteria to some or all of the competitors, and share feedback with competitors when the event is over with just one click.
Watch as the scores roll in.
“I've been pleased with Populy's ease of use for first-timers, its simplicity to set up, and its continual evolution to include new features based on customer feedback. I look forward to the chance to use it again!”Craig Forest, Georgia Tech
“Since adopting this online balloting system, the feedback from our judges and organizing committee has been overwhelmingly positive. The system is intuitive and simple, and notably, it works well even for large-scale sessions where WiFi and network coverage can be spotty or intermittent!”Eric Kennedy, SB3C
“Using the Populy poster judging platform made organizing, evaluating, and providing feedback during our poster symposium effortless and fun! Populy makes it easy for organizers to actually enjoy the sessions themselves.”Elizabeth Bowman, Vanderbilt

“Populy makes my job easier by instantly calculating the winners and helping to decide finalists. I highly recommend Populy for judging needs for your events. You cannot go wrong and they are always on hand when needed.”Allyson Tant, Georgia Tech
“Populy was a breeze to use. It eliminates the waste, inconvenience, and confusion of interpreting paper ballots. The results were unanimous from all of the judges: Populy is the way to go.”Amelia Nestler, American Chemical Society
