Smartsettle provided me with an excellent insight into enegotiation methods. I hope to use it in real life cases in the future!

Smartsettle is a very effective tool to efficiently settle simple disputes online. I look forward to seeing Smartsettle used more commonly among people who want to negotiate without delay.

As an adjunct professor of ADR and a professional mediator and arbitrator (but definitely not a digital native!), I found Cyberweek extremely helpful and enlightening.

I thought Smartsettle was an effective and fuss-free method of settling disputes that centralised around the settlement amount, and the message function further facilitated communication between parties.

This year's Smartsettle One Competition was a great opportunity for anyone in the ADR or Mediation areas of law to gain a glimpse into the endless possibilities of Smartsettle. The way in which this program has been set up will be valuable for mediators, arbitrators, and participants alike. Smartsettle has proven to be a powerful, efficient, and reliable way to settle complex litigations, small claims, or multi-party cases. Smartsettle maximizes each participant's time, energy, and money in settlement situations. I especially thought that the hidden acceptance and visibile acceptance was a great way of going about the mediation; parties walk away with an agreement resulting from a zero-pressure, comfortable environment.

I enjoyed trying out Smartsettle - it's easy for the end user to navigate and understand.

"I am honored to participate in Cyberweek 2011. Smartsettle provided a unique platform with which to practice electronic negotiations. I am very impressed by Smartsettle’s dampened pendulum arbitration, a creative method of arbitration guaranteeing a collaborative outcome. The dampened pendulum arbitration encourages fair concessions. If negotiators have agreed to arbitration in case of no agreement at the end of negotiation, the Smartsettle platform uses an expert neutral’s decision to favor the negotiator whose last offer was closest to fair. During the negotiations at Cyberweek, I was bargaining aggressively, but fair concession was my guideline. I highly recommend the Smartsettle platform. eNegotiation is gaining popularity, not only because it can save time and money, but it can also encourage generosity and fairness. I believe that eNegotiation will be widely used. I will share my great experience with everyone."

"Smartsettle provided us with an excellent electronic platform during an international eNegotiation competition. The electronic platform resembles Goddess of Justice, who has been often portrayed as wearing a blindfold. The blindfold represents blind justice, regardless of who you are, where are you from… Like Goddess of Justice, The electronic platform is “blind”. It keeps negotiators’ confidential information secret. When negotiating parties do not reach an agreement, the platform acts as a neutral arbitrator making a fair decision without impartiality. As a result, the students in China could overcome language and cultural barriers to perform well during the eNegotiation competition. Thus, I highly recommend eNegotiation." - Yaxi Feng

"I want to thank Smartsettle for giving us the chance to participate at the International eNegotiation Exhibition. For me, it was not only a special learning experience but also something to be proud of because I joined the competition not only for myself but also on behalf of Nanchang University. Before Cyberweek 2011, there was no record of any Chinese university taking part in any eNegotiation competition. During Cyberweek, the students at Nanchang University enthusiastically negotiated with students in other countries through the eNegotiation platform and are very pleased with their achievement. Now, we are so excited to see our bright national flag and our university website in the Participant Gallery!" - Weiting Gong

"It was my pleasure to take part in the eNegotiation competition sponsored by Smartsettle. Smartsettle provided us with the electronic platform to negotiate with many students from various countries. I learned so much from this competition. First, I have built up my confidence. I can do it! During the competition, I tried my best, but I did not believe I could be among top ten! Second, I improved my English not only by reading the rules of competition, original cases and click-wrap agreement in English but also by using English to communicate with my counterparts. Finally, I discovered that to some extent, eNegotiation is more convenient and more efficient than face-to-face negotiation. I am looking forward to participating in Smartsettle Infinity, the advanced eNegotiation system. I would like to thank Dr. Ernest Thiessen, Derek Barber and other Smartsettle team members for a superb job."

"International electronic negotiation can not only improve efficiency, save time and reduce cost but also eliminate corruption. I think eNegotiation is a simple and convenient method and has far-reaching effect on the electronic government and electronic democracy, etc. In addition, I was glad to communicate with foreign friends during Cyberweek 2011 through the Smartsettle platform. My dear foreign friend, you are welcome to visit our beautiful campushttp://www.at0086.com/NCU/" - Jing He

国际商务谈判心得: As one of the students of Class 08 (法学08级) at Nanchang University 南昌大学, I participated in the online negotiation. Although I was among top standings, I found that my classmates did not learn less than I did during Cyberweek. We were learning by playing and enjoying edutainment provided by the Smartsettle platform. Smartsettle has introduced “alternative dispute resolution” (ADR) through an electronic platform. ADR originated in ancient China, Confucius’ hometown, and now is warmly welcome to come home! The Smartsettle platform transforms traditional ADR into a new form. Although the optimization algorithms powering Smartsettle are sophisticated, the ADR method is simple for the user. Also, we trust the electronic mediator or arbitrator with our confidential information. This unbiased E-mediation or E-arbitration minimizes the need for human intervention. E-ADR, you awarded our students at Nanchang U. with top 10, we give you high 5! Thanks!谢谢! Xie Xie sound like 'she-ay, she-ay' 杜明靖

I really enjoyed participating in the competition. While I've never negotiated in this type of medium before, I found the both the overall exercise and the strategy required rather interesting.

It was a pleasure taking part in the Smartsettle Competition, and a great opportunity to try my hand at e-negotiation. I found the process very efficient and user-friendly, and would be interested to see how this technology is used in real negotiations.

Malvika Singh

The experience was novel but I am unsure if I'd use such a technology in the future primarily because for me a face to face negotiation trumps any other kind of negotiation. However, this is definitely a faster way of reaching a settlement and for those pressed for time, this is definitely the quickest way to negotiate.

While I don't know that I greatly improved my practical negotiation skills, it was an interesting exercise in strategy; striking a balance between finding the settlement range and conceding too much forces you to attempt to predict your opponent's strategy and moves and respond accordingly.
