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.

It's great for virtually meeting with people in other cities/countries. It's terrific how they provide so many international numbers for people to use!

Pros

Amazon Chime

  • The screen sharing aspect of Chime is very useful when attempting to demonstrate functionality to our remote users.
  • Using Chime as an instant messaging app between our workforce is extremely helpful.
  • It is quite simple to send an invite and have Outlook manage the appointment. Then Chime automatically calls you when the appointment is about to start.

FreeConference.com

  • You can subscribe in a couple clicks and that gives you access, for free, to unlimited conference calls within the US and a selection of other countries (premium accounts give access to all countries - but the free service is already quite amazing).
  • The quality of the calls is a sure benefit. One might expect for it to be poor as I did specifically because of the cost.
  • You can use your numbers without setting up a new conference call every time.
  • You can also schedule a conference and get reminded.

Cons

Amazon Chime

  • Sometimes it's a little too basic and simple
  • I've come across multiple times where notifications won't go away even after viewing all unread messages
  • Requires a lot of updates

  • Early on (many years ago), I occasionally had some trouble getting everyone onto the same call. But that's only happened a couple of times many moons ago.

Some customer service reps are great, but I find the majority are not really giving you service, they are not solving the problems and issues can go on for weeks. It is very frustrating and has made me question my decision to stay with them. Once again, there are some great ones that actually follow up when they say they will and have concrete answers, even if they say they are still researching, at least I know someone is on it.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Chime

Amazon Chime WILL become an industry leader. Amazon is still behind WebEx and is gaining ground on Microsoft. The advantage Microsoft will have is the ability to embed in organizations through Office, and have that advantage over WebEx as well. We selected Amazon Chime as another platform because it aided in our support from the AWS Web Services Support Team.

I selected freeconferences.com at the time because I didn't have access to my webex account and I was crunched for time . I was a bit amazed/"Taken back" as i wondered why this wasn't protocol already. The platform is easy, free, a no-brainer.
