Amazon Chime

Amazon Chime is a superior alternative to other free video conference/conference call programs. The call and video quality are great, and you can have multiple participants on both video and call. It's well suited for an organization that wants an affordable option for video and conference calls, but may not be appropriate for organizations with limited budgets or those who do very little conferencing.

Pros

  • Audio and video quality is very good
  • Easy to sign on and start conversations, other tools I've used sometimes can be confusing or don't always work properly.

  • Easy to use: The app is very, very easy to use. Literally just create a chat room (input a name) and access it to chat.
  • Call/video quality: I've experienced better call quality on appear.in than in almost all other chat and video conferencing services out there.

Cons

  • Sometimes people are confused because they don't necessarily know or understand what Amazon Chime is because they haven't heard of it. However, they trust the "Amazon" brand, so once they click and sign in, things are fine.

  • Feature-wise, none that I can think of.

We are using a larger tool suite that already includes video conferencing instead of our older approach of using different apps from different vendors.appear.in has a simple but great set of features but its pricing scheme is not as scalable as we really need in a 500+ employee company.

Very easy to use, technical and non-technical colleagues have used it with no instructions needed. That says all about the app and services.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Chime is very comparable to Zoom meeting. Monthly costs are usually cheaper but are variable and can fluctuate. Reporting on AWS Chime is great but needs some additional back-end set-up that could be cumbersome. Overall... ease, quality, look and set-up is very easy. Equipment required, quality and cost is what makes this a great product.

appear.in was the least expensive alternative at the time my company used it. It included the right set of features for what we needed.

Return on Investment

  • Amazon Chime has negatively impacted our ability to perform demos and calls. Some prospects are late to calls because Chime isn't working, or they give up and don't join the call at all.
  • Amazon Chime also makes us look unprofessional when we have to ask them to download a conferencing software for screenshare meeting, when many other alternatives are web-based.

  • It helped us to connect our team across continents in a very affordable way.
