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.

LoopUp

LoopUp works well as a cheaper option than WebEx and GoToMeeting. It may not have all the same functions as the competitors, but allows large groups to collaborate and do work for small/mid sized companies. One of the large advantages is you can pay per use rather than having to pay out a subscription.

Pros

  • Connecting via the computer - this easy and so simple, just a couple of clicks.
  • Using multiple technologies - Amazon Chime also allows you to use a phone for dial-in audio. I enjoy this as my computer microphone and speakers are not the best sometimes.
  • Scheduling meetings - this is such an easy function for one time meetings or recurring.

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.

  • Screen sharing hangs from time to time
  • Didn't work as well on Apple Products
  • Relies on specific network configuration for optimal performance

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Chime is great for call and video quality. It's pretty comparable to Zoom both in cost and capabilities. It's definitely superior to UberConference and Join.me, both of which are not particularly reliable. I have had call quality and the screen shares freeze up. Also, neither UberConference or Join.me have a video conferencing ability.

Loopup is a cheaper alternative than GoToMeeting. You do sacrifice some of the features, but for most staff requiring a dial in and screen sharing it does the job. If cost reduction is at the forefront, you may want to look more seriously at LoopUp as a screen sharing tool.

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.

  • The product was quick and easy to setup, so large integration and roll out was not required.
  • Had a great overall cost.
  • Looked at Skype for Business for additional functionality and overall cost savings over a 3 year period.
