I found the Smartsettle Infinity experience to be very exciting. As a newcomer, I felt challenged and amazed with the power of the program. The ODR technology in Smartsettle is awesome.

Participating in the eNegotiation tournament showed me the benefits of automated negotiation in terms of convenience, efficiency and satisfaction. I would use Smartsettle in a real negotiation if the need arose.

"It was a very interesting process. Ours was a bit abbreviated because of a compacted course scheduled. Using the software really made you think about the impact of one negotiation point on the others. Not having gone through the process before it was a little difficult with the waiting for a response, but it gave time to really consider all the options in making a proposal. The automated proposal generating was fascinating." - Patricia

Smartsettle is a unique, effective tool in the often complicated negotiation setting. The ability to manipulate and observe the effects on the various divisible interests involved in this negotiation allowed me to visualize where I could afford to \"give and take.\"

This eNegotiaion tournament is a great experience for me to participate the online negotiation. I learned a lot from the entire negotiation process. Smartsettle is an effective tool to establish my negotiation plan and help me to go through the negotiation process.

I value the opportunity to experience the potential for sophisticated negotiation tools, and to see what is possible for ODR in the future.

"A strength of the Smartsettle program was the ability to negotiate in contractual situations by assigning numerical satisfaction ratings to the proposals and packages. These ratings allowed the parties to have an understanding of their own interests and determine whether or not they had reached an acceptable agreement. The asynchronous nature of the system, along with the 'changes waiting' prompt, was very convenient and responsive."

"With technology moving quickly and the need to settle disputes in a more efficient manner, eNegotiaion leads the way in ODR methods. Smartsettle's eNegotiaion uses practical and effective tools to help parties come to mutual decisions. This was a great learning experience as parties from all over the world participate in negotiations without ever meeting face to face. I would recommend that companies, businesses and private parties consider utilizing eNegotiation to settle disputes."

Smartsettle is far beyond the competitors. There is no value left on the table at all with Smartsettle. This eNegotiation system is my favorite, it is systematic, graphic, rational based and has a good intuitive interface. The more issues there are, the more powerful it is. My favorite features are: Even Swaps, Suggestions, Tuning with Satisfaction Graphs, and the package deal. I enjoyed the competition. I am looking forward to using this system in multiparty negotiations.

The tournament was a great opportunity to practice negotiations and to learn about the benefits of negotiation support systems. Though I was sceptical about the usfullness of the suggestions and improvements automatically generated by Smartsettle in the beginning, I figured out that these functions facilitate negotiation and improve the negotiated solution considerably. They help you to consider options and trade-offs formerly unconsidered and to be responsive to your opponents needs.

At the beginning we had some technical problems with the software but also with understanding the meanings of suggestions, proposals etc. During the negotiation we got used to it. We enjoyed the Smartsettle option for writing comments and discussion. The graphic view was helpful for visualize the stage of the different discussion points. The negotiation ran very fair and always in time. It was a pleasure to deal with our partner.

The negotiation tournament has been a great experience. The training, the tournament and Smartsettle gave me a new insight in negotiations. Getting to a mutually satisfying agreement without ever meeting or even talking to one another is definitely one of the strong sides of Smartsettle and shows the potential of ENS.

I found the competition to be a tremendous learning experience. I have used other ODR sites and none of them offers the power of Smartsettle. With power goes complexity and the relatively steep learning curve for Smartsettle is well worth the effort. The competition helped my learning process immensely.

The eNegotiations competition has given me a chance to experiment with an excellent negotiations tool, Smartsettle. The competition and the Smartsettle tool highlighted that a critical aspect of negotiations is the inter-dependencies between negotiations issues, not just the issues by themselves. The competition has been an entirely enjoyable and stimulating experience.

It took a bit of experimenting to understand how to manipulate he formulae initially. Then it became very easy. I like the way the system allows you to analyze the issues according to the client's priorities.

The eNegotiation was fun...Smartsettle is a powerful, fast, and efficient tool. Smartsettle is an economic no-brainer for my business; it's like having a calculator while others are left counting on their fingers.
