“Skild allows me to manage the Cade Museum Prize with ease- the customization tools are extremely intuitive and data analytics are flawless. After having experienced several other competition platforms, never before have I been able to pull such a personalized set of statistics and data. Both participants and judges regularly comment to me on how well designed and easy it is to participate in the Cade Museum Prize using Skild, which is always a priority when managing a prize competition. The crowning stroke is that Skild team takes client relations to the highest level, and they are always eager to work with me to actualize new ideas.”

Alexandra Rhoton - Program Manager
Cade Museum Prize for Innovation

The Skild platform enabled us to run a contest where customers submitted entries that were judged by a panel of employees. The back end was user-friendly and easy to maintain, while the front end was very professional looking and easy for customers to use. The Skild support team was helpful in getting us up and running on a tight deadline.”

My business is being a speaker at events. I knew nothing about planning my own awards conference. Skild was easy to set up and execute. The best part was that their support was outstanding and help us with all our questions as soon as they came up. I never want to do an event without them!

Barry Moltz - Small Business Expert & Co-creator of
The Rule Breaker Awards

“I chose Skild for my organization's annual contest because the previous platform I used made it hard to get the information I needed and to make content changes quickly. With Skild, I have been able to run reports and to easily make tweaks and changes both before and during the contest. Skild lets me focus on what matters most: increasing participation and reducing the time I spend on the back-end.”

Jonathan Streeter - University Communications Manager

“The Skild platform was instrumental in organizing and evaluating over 100 applications for our first ever recognition award event in education. The platform is intuitive and easy to set up with a clean interface. The Skild team was also very proactive in offering ways to improve the experience and helping to troubleshoot issues.”
