Adobe Connect

Adobe is a solid platform for a one-way presentation with one presenter sharing information to many others. There is an option for computer audio, or dial in by phone--a feature that I have used repeatedly when I was ON THE GO but needed to attend a meeting. Adobe has a recording function which is perfect for archiving minutes or discussions or saving training sessions that we redistribute later.

LogMeIn Pro

While LogMeIn is well suited to technicians who need to remotely access client systems. The change in the pricing has caused a lot of people in my industry to look for alternatives. Most of us want access to remote computers and don't need cloud storage, etc.

Pros

  • Provides a recorded archive of meetings and training webinars. This fact is important as we need a record of the events and redistribute archived training.
  • Allows many participants to attend the Live Webinars or meetings without issue. As the number of participants is not the same each time, having the ability to invite as many as possible is a real plus.
  • Provides a log in the email with a link and connection information for people to join the meeting or webinar. This step is important as without it, people could not actually enjoy the benefits of the meeting or webinar.

  • Initial setup is user friendly and intuitive. Just follow the steps.
  • Setting up user accounts and applicable access restrictions is very simple. Reviewing these at a glance is just as clear.
  • Once you're in, you're in! You are able to work on the remote destination without issue, all the way up to linking to network printers and local printers.
  • You can always see who is logged into which destination, audit their activity and, if needed, end or monitor their session.
  • You can set the security features in LogMeIn Pro up to notify the Admin user of an array of events, including login attempts (both successful and unsuccessful) and login attempted using invalid credentials. Very secure.

Cons

  • Although it is a necessity to have the login email information shared with participants, we have had occasions when the link did not work properly or--more often--the Meeting ID did not allow the participant to enter the meeting room. As this is an issue that is only discovered at the meeting time (you cannot "try it" before the meeting time), it is problematic when it does not work.
  • Adobe Connect does not have the ability to SHARE SCREENS. There is one presenter who can put up documents for the participants to view, but there is no ability to change the Presenter so that multiple screens could be shared. In a roundtable discussion, it would be helpful if different people could share or trade control during the same meeting.
  • There is no ability to see the participants. Although I am sometimes in my lounge clothes when I attend an Adobe Connect meeting, face-to-face contact is helpful for engaging with an audience or for nonverbal communication. Although I think each participant should have control over the ability to use or not use video, I think it should be an option.

  • LogMeIn Pro allows only one user to control the remote destination at a time. If more than one user needs to access/control the same destination, they can share the session (visibility to both parties), or will need to wait till the prior user is logged out for a more secure session. Being able to log in and use the same destination at the same time, initiating unique sessions would be ideal. (Similar to VPN.)
  • Ability to override or default session settings for security, for example blanking the remote monitor (or not), recording a session, or changing access while the user is in-session. This would allow an administrator or manager to more closely audit activity.
  • Provide a one-click logout+disconnect. Right now, users must disconnect their session before exiting LogMeIn Pro. If their session is not first disconnected and the user simply exits or logs out of LogMeIn Pro, the session may remain active, without disconnecting. This would show as an active session, even if the user is technically no longer using the remote destination.
  • More detailed audit information. What application did the user access while connected to the remote destination? Was the session shared with anyone else?

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

Implementation

Adobe Connect7.9
Based on 4 answers
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

When evaluating the Adobe Connect Software, we actually wanted to switch to Webcast Studio, but did not have enough time to set up the software before our next web conference. Adobe Connect's pricing was also better and ultimately our evaluation team lead decided that because of timing and pricing we would stick with Adobe Connect for another year. As can be seen, I do think there are many other Web conference platforms that are better which include Webcast Studio and WebEx Meetings.

Cisco SSL VPN is great for a large corporation with the resources to invest in a more customization system. LogMeIn Pro remains accessible to the small, or single owner businesses looking for a remote access alternative with a very small financial footprint.

Return on Investment

  • Adobe Connect has improved the way we communicate inside and outside the company, both with employees as suppliers and external customers.
  • Adobe Connect has improved the way to share information to my collaborators, has a wide acceptance of formats or files.
  • To have an excellent performance in the use of Adobe Connect, the company must have robust and good quality computing equipment to maximize the experience and comfort offered by this application, which generates a costly investment in the IT area.

  • Affordable financial investment for a huge return: remote user access. Much more financially accessible for a smaller company, in comparison to more traditional VPN services.
