Amazon Chime

Amazon Chime works so well in our office environment because everyone is on the go all of the time and it allows us to connect to our meeting in just a couple clicks of the mouse. It can at times be distracting, especially if meetings run over any amount of time, but it also helps us stay on track for all meetings throughout the day.

ReadyTalk

Think about your needs as an organization and whether you will be using primarily audio only or audio plus web. If audio only then ReadyTalk will certainly meet your need. If web, then shop around for functionality, support, and price. I am fairly "neutral" on ReadyTalk - neither a huge cheerleader nor a huge detractor.

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.

  • The basic conference line functionality provided by ReadyTalk is useful to convene meetings with folks in different geographical areas. I like that I can provide them with the phone number and code, and anyone can join from various remote corners of the world.
  • I like that you can set an automated reminder to go out to invitees in advance of calls.
  • When the functionality is working, I like the integration with Google calendar.

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.

  • The ReadyTalk system defaults to sending out the toll-free number which ReadyTalk changes extra for using. We have to have multiple calls with ReadyTalk to set it up where it defaults to sending the 303 conference line out.
  • We use Readytalk with Hubspot (which they have an integration with), but it is a very complicated integration and confusing to use.

ReadyTalk is easy to use, but I did find the initial integration to Outlook a bit cumbersome. I couldn't tell you how to do it now - someone else had to walk me through it when I started at the company. We also have a lot of issues with people trying to use their computers for audio; often, it stops working entirely mid-meeting

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.

ReadyTalk seems comparable to GoToMeeting and seems to have very similar feature sets and integrations. We currently use ReadyTalk because of the ease of use when setting up a conference call, whereas we've had some difficulties calling in to various GoToMeeting conferences and using the correct invitation codes / website links.

Return on Investment

  • Amazon Chime has been an incredibly cost effective way to add video and conference line services (with screen sharing) to our day to day operations because we have an account for free for being Vonage customers.
  • A pro account only costs $15 a month, and you only need one pro account for a small office. If others in your organization need to join, all you need is a basic account to join. You need a pro account in order to launch and administer meetings.

  • ReadyTalk has definitely had a positive impact on our ROI purely because it helps us generate sales and close on larger accounts that may have not closed had we not had a screenshare tool.
