Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon Chime

I would LOVE to be able to recommend Amazon Chime but as an enterprise solution is simply is not there. It is perfect for small business or office settings who do not rely on conferencing as a major function of their business. If your organization is constantly relying on conferencing there are other market leaders. Amazon is a leader in so many ways, [with] conferencing they are still playing catch up, but they will get there.

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

  • The one thing Amazon Chime has going for it is it is backed by its top tier web services platform. Amazon Chime may not have the market share yet, but it has the visibility and commitment from its development teams to be a mainstay in conferencing for the foreseeable future.
  • Amazon Chime offered a very easy to use interface that is friendly not only through the desktop application but the web and mobile interfaces.
  • Amazon Chime offers a variety of ways to allow first-time users to join meetings. Either through standard invites and meeting ID's etc. It is easy to get new people, customers or first time/one time users involved, collaborating and contributing.

Alternatives Considered

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.

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.
