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.

Jive

Jive is an amazing way to share weekly reports/updates. We post weekly Google Analytics Reports, social media engagement stats, and sales updates in a private group for our team. It's a nice way to share updates without clogging up email inboxes. More importantly, the whole team can comment and update the documents. It's also nice to be able to share larger files without worrying about size limits

Pros

  • One of the few things that Amazon Chime does well is scheduling calls with Gmail. It's pretty easy to do.
  • Another thing Amazon Chime does will is basic functions like muting and unmuting the mic and screensharing.

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.

  • Clutter can easily become an issue if there isn't an established governance strategy in place.
  • Search is unreliable - it can be a challenge to find content if you don't already have an idea of what group/space it's located in.
  • Communication about missing/desired features and bug fixes could be better.

It was very cumbersome to generate reports. Often I had to run several reports and then merge them offline to get what I needed.

Reporting granularity is also lacking

Uptime was OK. But there was one day that the system crashed for a whole day. Our company was unable to operate. And all the plugins to word/excel froze causing those systems to freeze.

Jive posted a statement to the media saying all customers were up, but we were not.

They did an OK job when I needed them. Except for the one day the system went down. Jive pointed the finger at the hosting company, and the hosting company pointed the finger at Jive. No reliable information came to us.

If I did this over, I would hire out the implementation. They know the best practices and could have guided us to make an easier to use setup.

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.

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.

  • Cannot speak for my company but it clearly had the same impact Facebook had on the outside world. It allowed everyone in all of the corners of the company to have a voice, to rate content and comment on existent content, to collaborate better with similar interest users and to develop professionally by better having visibility in what opportunities, classes, seminars are out there.
  • It is NOT SharePoint and SharePoint is NOT Jive! They are different and they should be! There are features that are on the wish list for Jive to mimic from SharePoint and that is fine but the difference is clear and SharePoint will never be Jive in terms of ease of built, usability or collaboration!
