Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon Chime

Because of the consistent and unending inconveniences and difficulties we have had with Amazon Chime, I am not likely at all to ever recommend this solution. Having a call/meeting software solution is essential to our sales cycle because most of our meetings have to happen through a computer, and if this solution is weak then it negatively effects everything. Our prospects have had a lot of difficulty connecting to calls and some meetings have been canceled altogether because of this.

Google Drive is great for teams on the move, who might now be able to sit down with one another in the same room and look over a document together. It saves versions so that even if you make a mistake, there is always a past version saved for you. Just keep in mind that the larger your team, the more people will be editing the same document, which can get messy if you’re not careful.

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.

  • Notify who and when makes updates
  • It helps to work in groups since we all are working under the same updated document
  • Google Drive has all the tools you used to find in classic Microsoft

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.

  • Google Drive's capabilities typically function very well, unless there is a somewhat shoddy internet connection. If there is an unstable internet connection then it can take a while for changes made in the document to be saved. This may make it hard for certain individuals working remotely in areas with an occasionally unstable internet connection to be able to make or see any changes themselves.

It's the cheapest, most effective platform we've found to store files in the cloud.

How I have Google Drive installed to my system back up occurs instantly and in the background, if I update a document Google Drive immediately ask if I want to save the updated document and overwrite what I previously stored. This occurs without any prompt from me and that a 10 for me, however, there are times when it does lag a bit however this may be a fault of my Internet service provider and not the Google Drive service.

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.

The advantage of Google Drive is that it provides 15 GB free of charge. In addition, with Drive it is not necessary to save documents, since the connection is updated frequently. In addition, Google Drive works on almost all smartphones regardless of the operating system, so switching devices is really convenient.

  • It has allowed for much easier collaboration over documents and much less confusion over document versions, saving time and preventing mistakes that used to occur often
  • The tight integration with GSuite reduces the friction for making changes to files
