The 8x8 app is great and very user friendly and straightforward. Team Members can adjust their own setting as needed.

It works really well in a one on one settings when teachers are coordinating with individual trainers or workshops. It can be helpful as well during a team setting Q&A for follow up training. However, it is a struggle to use in large group settings when one presenter is speaking to a large group of people for trainings.

  • Learning how to work through multiple documents or presentations in a call can be tricky.
  • Our rural setting does not allow for consistent internet connection, video is not always clear.
  • Audio can be limited to a large room setting in workshops.

If you get less than 4 phones you fall into the online only customer service. There were a couple of times that I could have used more assistance but figuring it out online was a bit of a hassle.

Haven’t had a chance to need to connect with the service staff as we haven’t had to deal with any large issues beyond internet bandwidth restrictions. However, we feel like support would be very quick and efficient if we were to need it. The observations of setting up our doc cams and getting connected with workshop presenters has been smooth so far.

8x8 has a much lower cost that avaya for the same features. 8x8 is a bit more user friendly than some other larger well established brands. It still uses industry standards in terminology and call flows to for anyone with voip experience its a pain free switch to make over.

GoToRoom does a great job of video conferencing with multiple users, similar to Zoom, but has easier access to documents similar to Google Classroom or Google Hangouts. It’s a nice blend of these three pieces of software.
