Amazon Chime

For small business (5 people or less) AWS Chime is a great turn-key solution that is quick and easy to set up. For medium to large size businesses, you will need to find someone with AWS experience to set up customizations and develop with your AD. Detailed set-up can be cumbersome but not impossible.

Sococo

I think it's great for a team that does a lot of remote work that has to communicate a lot. It's easy to hop between calls/share screens, in a more smoother fashion than a traditional 'Skype' style of voice chat program. I've also found it to be smoother for hopping between shared screens than other options.

Pros

  • Easy to set up
  • Easy to use
No photo available
  • Good voice codex. Voices come across clearly and I've never had problems struggling to understand another person due to static.
  • Easy screen sharing. The screen sharing is intuitive and easy to use. In addition, it's easy for multiple people to be sharing a screen at the same time, and viewers can easily hop between the different shared screens.
  • Has a mobile phone application version, web browser version , and stand alone client.

Cons

  • Needs voicemail
  • Easier deployment for customers who need to include their AD

  • It would be great if it supported other major browsers. Not everyone has Chrome installed.
  • The ongoing subscription cost is difficult to justify. This is the only reason we stopped using it.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Chime is very comparable to Zoom meeting. Monthly costs are usually cheaper but are variable and can fluctuate. Reporting on AWS Chime is great but needs some additional back-end set-up that could be cumbersome. Overall... ease, quality, look and set-up is very easy. Equipment required, quality and cost is what makes this a great product.

Sococo lacks the power of Slack for storing and searching old messages but I think Dlack is overkill in most situations. When using instant messages ad an alternative to a quick phone call who needs a record?

Skype for Business is just awful for conference calls. You can't have ad-hoc meetings. Also people outside the organisation (contractors, etc.) won't have the client software.
