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.

Join.me

When you have more than two parties that need to be on a call or screen share, Join.me facilitates a place where everyone can easily call in and view the presentation. When there are multiple parties that are unknown to each other, it allows each party to introduce themselves before getting onto the actual call.

Pros

Amazon Chime

  • Very simple custom URL for easy sharing. No long dial in, participant codes, international numbers.
  • No software to download for either party, probably the best reason to switch. People hate when you invite them to a meeting and then you first have to download the software. Many companies block their employees from downloading outside software.
  • Manage Team. It is very easy to manage the users on your account, add, delete. This is a huge time saver.

Join.me

  • Quick launch - start your meeting with your custom URL at a moments notice
  • Good audio - join using your computer audio to be 'in the meeting' quickly with clear tones
  • Quick join - join.me saves your most frequently joined meetings in the modal, so you can type in a colleagues name to jump on their meeting right away.

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

  • We use Join.me in conjunction with DocSend- this integration is very poor and only works 2/3rds of the time. When I am using DocSend and I push the button to switch to the Join.me screenshare the load time is very slow and it's always and awkward waiting time on a call for the screen to switch.
  • Oftentimes when I switch my screen the attendee says all they see is the loading screen, not what I'm sharing. We then have to spend 5 min troubleshooting and trying to get it to work.
  • The audio conferencing will occasionally drop people randomly, though I wouldn't say this happens any more so than any other conferencing vendor.

Join.me is one of the more basic/simple collaboration tools. Its usability for general users is good. It's simple, and fairly intuitive. For more advanced users however, it is rather basic, with not a lot of expandability. It has its set uses, and that's pretty much it. It's essentially a what you see is what you get platform.

We have not yet needed to use support, the system is so easy and self-explanatory. But, just to let you know, they do have live chat available on the bottom of the page for your convenience. Or if you would rather call in, the 800 number is readily available as well. So it is there if you need it.

This is a fairly simple product which doesn't require much "implementation" work for our use cases.

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.

Join.me

Compared to Adobe Connect, Join.me is very easy to install and rollout across the organization. Companies of any size can adopt this application for easy and effective conference calls, impromptu meetings and recording sessions. Cost-wise, it was easy to justify the purchase as well. Would like to see more branding options.

Return on Investment

Amazon Chime

  • We use the free version, and we benefit from better access to discussions with prospective hires which can lead to increase win percentage.

  • From a sales perspective it's not good to do mass webinars because users don't need to identify themselves when they log in. They can just be "user 7". In a one-to-one meeting that's fine and our company has found ways around the webinar situation but you really don't know which users attended the meeting or not unless they enter their real name.
