Software and Hardware

ARS hardware consists of keypads that are the individual units given to your audience. These keypads allow them to place their selection or vote. They can be as simple as 5 answer choices or as complex as multi-digit and free-form text. Some even have LCD displays and touch screens.

ARS software captures the selections from your audience. It is typically either a PowerPoint Add-in or standalone package. The software can be more specialized for specific industries such as, educations, corporation training, and game shows. Also, it is the connection between the presenter, audience, and the ARS voting system.
