Amazon Chime

Amazon Chime is well suited for any online meeting or presentation, as it's easy to use and works well with great video/audio. It may be less appropriate if you are talking to a prospect that has strong feelings against Amazon, or one that is more wary of technology.

ReadyTalk is a great sales and marketing tool, and is even better for product demonstrations. We haven't yet used ReadyTalk for internal uses, but I feel that it would also be effective for employee trainings, etc. We primarily use ReadyTalk when we have a larger prospective client who is interested in a more detailed presentation after an initial call has already been made.

Pros

Amazon Chime

  • 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.

  • Working with an operator is extremely helpful, especially for new people who are just starting to use the tool.
  • Running the software is very simple from my viewpoint. I download the software once and it just runs after that.
  • Creating an event is very simple. I love how they allow you to easily adjust the time zones so you know when exactly you are creating the event.

Cons

Amazon Chime

  • Amazon Chime is not user friendly. People who we have meetings with who have never used Amazon Chime regularly have difficulty connecting to the call, especially if the call is international.
  • You have to download Amazon Chime to share your screen. When we need our prospects to share their screen for a product training, asking them to download a meeting software is awkward and not smooth.

GlobalMeet Webinar

  • Not a robust enough editing tool for recordings. Can be a very tedious and long process.
  • No social media integration.
  • Better phone sound quality.
  • Less instances of audio dropping or recordings not syncing up with original live webinar.
  • Event manager should stay on until end of webinar.

ReadyTalk is easy to use, but I did find the initial integration to Outlook a bit cumbersome. I couldn't tell you how to do it now - someone else had to walk me through it when I started at the company. We also have a lot of issues with people trying to use their computers for audio; often, it stops working entirely mid-meeting

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Chime

I have used GoToMeeting, which is a major competitor to Amazon Chime, and I can confidently say that GoToMeeting is literally ten times better. We rarely have any of the issues with GoToMeeting that we do with Amazon Chime. I highly recommend GoToMeeting over Amazon Chime because your meetings and demos will go much smoother and the user interface is much cleaner.

I didn't personally select ReadyTalk, my organization did because it costs less than what we were currently using (ON24). ON24 allowed attendees the opportunity to download slides during the live webcast, and the opportunity to download a CPE certificate if they qualified after the webcast. ON24 did not allow you to move around slides or polling questions once the tool was live. I find post event reporting to be easier on ReadyTalk. The sound quality with ON24 was probably a bit better

Return on Investment

Amazon Chime

  • Amazon Chime has been an incredibly cost effective way to add video and conference line services (with screen sharing) to our day to day operations because we have an account for free for being Vonage customers.
  • A pro account only costs $15 a month, and you only need one pro account for a small office. If others in your organization need to join, all you need is a basic account to join. You need a pro account in order to launch and administer meetings.

  • I can't say. I don't handle financials in my organization. But I would say the sound quality and the inability to download slides and CPE certificates has probably caused us to lose some of our audience.
