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.

We are a pretty unique business because we deal with bookkeeping, marketing, and HR and across all 3 departments, we have been able to successfully use the tool. Other software we have tried usually caters to one industry at a time.

Pros

  • Great call quality! The conference line is crystal clear.
  • Strong video quality. We've never had problems with the video conference feed cutting out.
  • The app is pretty user friendly and easy to use.
  • Easy to send invites and to give teammates the ability to schedule calls/video conferences on behalf of another account.

  • Project Management - Creating projects and tasks is really easy
  • Timesheets - Logging time is super quick and simple.

Cons

  • Amazon Chime can be invasive as it pops up on your computer one minute or so before your meeting time.
  • Screen sharing - this isn't a real con as the screen sharing is great, it's at times just really small and hard to view when there are a handful of people on the call.
  • Log in - this can sometimes be a challenge but [it's] not too bad.

  • Recurring Projects - Right now you can create recurring tasks with a project, but if you have a project that recurs monthly with a client, as we do, you have to manually create it. Ideally, we want to be able to have this happen automatically.
  • Xero Integration - If you create an invoice based on hours, you aren't able to adjust the inventory type. Also, for the integration, you are not able to have endless inventory types mapped to GL accounts in Xero. You can only have one catch-all if you are creating invoices from timesheets.
  • Stripe/ACH Integration - Since it already integrates with Stripe to accept payments, it would be great if the user can choose ACH through Stripe instead of just Credit Card. The functionality already exists on the Stripe end, but it has not been integrated with Avaza, yet! Recurring payment options would be great as well.
  • Estimates - It would be awesome if invoices worked more like Quotes or Proposals where the client can choose an option, accept and provide a signature.

They are always available and open to doing a call or a shared screen to walk through the issues.

Alternatives Considered

Chime and Biba are interchangeable to me, both accomplish the same task. We have transitioned to Chime as it was created by Amazon and we support Amazon, so it was an easy decision for us. I do enjoy Chime more as it just seems to work effortlessly. I would recommend it to all.

This is miles ahead of ActiveCollab. It has more features, the interface is easier to use and the invoicing is easier to use. Across the board better. We migrated from ActiveCollab, but that was just essentially a Fancier Wunderlist. If you just need one project and a few tasks it works, but for company use, it is overly complex, yet missing a lot of features as well.

Return on Investment

  • Positive - easy communication with the chat room feature for all teams (15+) throughout our campus.
  • Positive - user-friendly and easy to navigate so we weren't hindered with the transition.
  • Positive - Amazon Chime allows you to call in via the phone if a computer is not available. We are always on the go and phones are all that are available.

  • It has streamlined a lot of our work.
  • It keeps us, as admins, in the know with all the projects for our team.
