It is a great resource for evaluating, refining, and combining abilities and essential experiences in the growth of the sales team training; It is productive and lucrative in terms of distance knowledge transfer, and it reduces employee training financing and expenditures. I really like the ability to collaborate as a group on a huge research project even when we are not in the same country.

Webex Meetings

Overall, Webex Meetings provides excellent options for all online conferencing needs whether it be an ad-hoc or day-to-day meeting, or a more formal large-scale event. The "service types" (meetings, training, events, and support) provide good options for a variety of teams and the needs they may have based on their roles and functions. The intuitive structure of the platform allows for a consistent host and user experience regardless of the "service type" being used making for easier adoption.

Webex Meetings

  • The different options that are now available within [Webex] Meetings solution [are] great things such as events, training, and breakout rooms. [These] are really useful in this world of remote collaboration.
  • The integration of Slido into [Webex] Meetings is a definite benefit as it increases engagement during a meeting.
  • I actively use my Personal Meeting Room and find having that space and dedicated meeting URL really useful for me.

Cons

Adobe Connect

  • The overall connection and lag sometimes are disruptive. This may not be due to the platform as a whole, connectivity, and strength of the signal is probably a factor but it can get glitchy sometimes.
  • More features for remote desktop options, whiteboarding, or screen sharing to actively resolve issues would be great while collaborating.
  • Online support or forums to help assist with issues aren't as prevalent as you think they'd be. More individual resources to assist with issues would be helpful.

Webex Meetings

  • Slow down feature releases, at least until fully ready (i.e. "New" Events)
  • Along the same lines, please avoid constant 'delayed' feature releases (if not fully ready for that month's release, maybe hold it for the following month's release?)
  • Offer more pre-recorded training options via the new 'golearn.webex.com' LMS site

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

Cisco Webex Meetings is a platform that consistently performs well and outperforms some of the other solutions that we have used, such as Zoom. It is user friendly and helps our organization accomplish the goal of connecting with external contacts to conduct meetings and share information

Usability

While Adobe Connect does work well, the user management features can be a bit cumbersome to use to their fullest extent. Furthermore, some technical issues like participants getting kicked out of a meeting or losing connection also affect its overall usability, as certain users might have worse experiences and miss parts of events.

Cisco Webex Meetings is a really easy-to-use solution. Cisco has a mentality linked to joining meetings: one button to push. There is always the same big green button that appears everywhere—on invitation emails, in the calendar, on videoconferencing devices, on the application in our phones and tablets. One button and the meeting is started. Anyone can start a meeting.The solution is therefore minimally demanding for IT teams, and even easy to set up and support for smaller environments where there simply isn't an IT team.

I gave it a 10 out of 10 rating for availability, because since the pandemic started, which means 17 months already give or take, I have never had a moment where I needed to use Cisco Webex Meetings and the service was unavailable. Only once did the Webex app happen to have some issues and be unavailable in the last 17 months, but that got resolved in 2-3 hours. So from my own experience, in one and a half years, I never had an issue with the availability of the products and I use it daily at work.

Cisco Webex Meetings' native app for Windows 10 OS consumes a lot of computer resources in terms of RAM usage and CPU usage, which makes it slower on your computer. It integrates with multiple applications and software and it does not tend to slow any software of application at all

The customer support of Adobe connect is professional and well-skilled for resolving our minor and major issues. Moreover, it has almost all the features that will provide you a secure connection, with people across the world. Education institutes can also implement this software. On the basis of its quality and technology, I will surely advise you to try it once.

The response time is very fast via email. Most of the time, they also follow-up with a call but I usually need my questions answered via email.I think their support emails are bit bland and impersonal. They may think it's a good idea to list all applicable managers in their emails but that's not really all the important to me. In fact seeing so many people listed makes me wonder if I'd have to contact someone else to get my question answered or problem resolved.

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

That we needed complex implementation that we didn't get tells me 2 things: 1) the product was not designed in a way that "just worked" like some of its peers (Zoom / BlueJeans) and 2) had our company defined actual user needs and validated / verified that they had bought something that matched those, we would have pursued features / designs more closely aligned with what the product actually does: screen share, sometimes video, definitely VOIP audio (always an option regardless of license), and easy recording and retrieval of meetings.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Connect

Actually, it was the other way around....we were using Adobe Connect, company-wide, then switched over to Zoom, mostly, I think, as a cost-cutting measure. But some Learning & Development folks campaigned to be allowed to retain some Adobe Connect licenses (for example, one L&D area had literally over 250 room layouts that their course facilitators could just jump into and use to deliver a course on short notice), which also allows some of us to continue to publish Presenter and Captivate modules to the Adobe server. (But, even those of us who still have Adobe Connect licenses use Zoom for most regular business meetings.)

Webex Meetings

Webex is a more mature product with integrations with Messaging and Calling all within the same suite of services. The audio and video call quality are top-notch. The Control Hub admin portal is user-friendly and comprehensive in terms of capabilities. The new training resources through GoLearn for new admins and end-users is really well done.

It has scaled without any problems, anyone in the organization and departments can use Cisco Webex Meetings easily. It helps us to provide regular communication between our customers and us.It is a very flexible and scalable software. In my organization all the employees are using the Cisco Webex Meetings with their own link of meeting[s] to connect with the team members. A really much needed product by CISCO.

Return on Investment

Adobe Connect

  • Save on time - our instructors and people that use the platform can teach more classes and more often than in-person training and time traveling.
  • We cut down on spending. When we offer training using Connect - we do not have to spend on meals, hard copy materials, and reserving a venue to deliver training.
  • We increase our training sales significantly but offering Connect as an alternative - any unforeseen cancellations to a public class can result in transferring to a remote online Connected class.
