Adobe Connect

If you're looking for just a basic meeting tool, there are cheaper ones (like Zoom) that will do the trick just fine. Where Adobe Connect shines is when you're looking for a virtual training tool, because of its more robust feature set and the fact that you can set up room layouts ahead of time and reuse them and because of the available add-ons, which can help make learning more engaging. (In fact, on that engagement front, I believe you can also present learners with interactive quizzes, etc., if you create them in another Adobe tool, like Presenter or Captivate.)

Google Meet

Meet is great for internal, small, and casual conversations. It is a great substitute for a quick swing by someones desk or a quick morning check-in. Meet is not great for large meetings. Meet is also not great for meetings that require a lot of collaboration and brain storming, since it is hard to capture within Meet.

Pros

Adobe Connect

  • The ability to customize your screen layouts. making each classroom unique.
  • Bandwidth and connectivity. Many other webinar platforms have limitations of how many users can attend with cameras. Adobe has no limit on how many users can join a meeting and stream live an HD quality camera. This feature makes the platform a true virtual classroom.
  • Low cost. The pricing for a license is surprisingly affordable. Adobe has demonstrated great customer support as well. they offer other services - like having a tech expert available to assist with new users having any type of issues.

  • Love the ability to switch different screen views and all the settings you can choose.
  • Entry screen that gives you a preview of your video before joining the meeting.
  • Settings are easy to access. I know where to go to mute, share screen, leave call, etc.

Cons

Adobe Connect

  • For some add-ins the functionality was limited - had problem with the PowerPoint slideshow feature. It did not always display properly as you progressed in slides.
  • Some of the features were not compatible with phones. For example, Some participants were using phones to participate in class and the features were not compatible. There was no way to test the feature compatibility with different platforms. You create something beautiful for your trainees and you are unable to use.
  • The price points were not very flexible. I had limited needs and I was paying a higher price tag than I should for what I needed. They should be more flexible with pricing based on features needed.
  • Downloading recordings was a HUGE pain in the neck. Most of the training conducted lasted 3 hours or more. I felt like I was being punished to have to play back the entire presentation to download the recording.

Google Meet

  • The tiled view has a glitch in which it occasionally does not work.
  • Options to “raise a hand” virtually to get the attention of a teacher if used in an education setting
  • The ability to mute particular members of the call

The longer you use Adobe Connect, the longer you are likely to use it. Because you can build more and more resources over time, creating rooms that you re-use, recorded content you can repurpose, and tools that form the basis of ever increasing productivity, the more you use Connect, the more productive you become. Unlike competing products where, with every meeting you essentially start over -- setting up your resources for each meeting -- in my Connect rooms, I have highly tuned tools to accomplish my knowledge transfer goals. When I want to conduct another session - I send a link out to the appropriate room and instantly we are all focusing on getting a job done together. This ability of Adobe Connect to make you productive at an ever quickening rate is a competitive advantage

As sophisticated a product as Adobe Connect, the ease of use is outstanding. In my experience, even a user with very little knowledge of Adobe Connect can begin using and even leading sessions with very little training to get started with the basic features. Additional training is needed to become comfortable with the number of available features, but learning curve even for those is no steeper than would normally be expected from similar software.

We are using it for 4-5 years now. We had many team members, partners, customers using in during this process and we never had any bigger issues with Google Hangouts Meet. We still use it today and we plan to keep on using it. It has great UX. Also people with less technical knowledge got use to it

When using Hangouts Meet at a company level, support is handled internally and any issues that need to be handled externally by Google have to be canalized through the IT department which can become tedious at times. Since there are not many issues when using the tool, this might not be as important

The ability to have most of the functionality of a full LMS at a fraction of the cost is huge. I can create manage and deploy both synchronous and asynchronous training based on the situation and all of my training is tracked through a series of easily created reports

Prices do not seem to vary much among resellers of the Adobe Connect hosted license; the only price variation you're likely to find are among the audio providers. When implementing, you may also wish to look into expanding the amount of storage you are allowed on the server to avoid any problems later on as your library of files starts to build up

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Connect

I prefer Adobe Connect's slide sharing and recording/playback features to either Zoom or GoToMeeting(GTM). GTM is good for meetings where the majority of the group is onsite and needs to conference in only a few remote participants, and Zoom is great for video chats. It's really a case of knowing your products and audience, and Adobe Connect has worked great for the majority of our team's needs.

Zoom has an advantage over Google, as it has better audio and video quality. The host has more authority over attendees. Zoom also has an advantage that it can used in any web browser while Google Meet can only be used in Chrome browsers. When it comes to the free version, Google Meet can be used for 60 mins as opposed to Zoom's 40 mins. The pricing also works in favor of Google Meet. However, Google Meet is restricted to Google users while Zoom can be used by anyone who has a valid email account, including Google Mail. In terms of other features, both stack up relatively well and there are no advantages or disadvantages one possesses over the other.

Return on Investment

Adobe Connect

  • On a positive note, I believe this has increased the scores of agents in a way that is influential and it shows. Getting immediate answers for problems plaguing our agents is first and foremost in making sure that we are not only addressing the vendors needs, but the customer's as well. We have used other platforms in the past. This has a far better impact on our overall numbers, I believe, as well as employee success and confidence.
  • Negative impacts by employees and affecting overall numbers in the company may be attributed to the lag or "boot" when agents are removed from the room without warning. This can cause confidence of agents to plummet and leave them without any support.

  • My organisation's services were halted due to the pandemic but using Google Hangouts Meet we were able to resume our services form home and the cash flow has been improving since then.
  • My teaching job has also been resumed thanks to Google meet.
  • It has helped me earn money again but this time by sitting at home.
