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.

Splashtop Business Access

It is a great application when you have to give support and you are not in the same office. You can grow with Splashtop because the number of computers that you add not affect the price.

Pros

  • One of the few things that Amazon Chime does well is scheduling calls with Gmail. It's pretty easy to do.
  • Another thing Amazon Chime does will is basic functions like muting and unmuting the mic and screensharing.

  • We can connect to computers with Mac, Linux and Windows (include the old versions and servers) from any device.
  • Have a great performance.
  • The price is excellent, and you can add any computer without affecting the price.
  • They have a nice support team.

Cons

  • Amazon Chime is not user friendly. People who we have meetings with who have never used Amazon Chime regularly have difficulty connecting to the call, especially if the call is international.
  • You have to download Amazon Chime to share your screen. When we need our prospects to share their screen for a product training, asking them to download a meeting software is awkward and not smooth.

  • At this momment I'm ok with the software.

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.

Splashtop for Business offers similar features at a greater value. However, it does lack simultaneous dual monitor support and seamless printer mapping.

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.

  • Lowers Cost of remote access
  • Provides remote screen sharing where we would otherwise not have that capability deployed for seldomly used systems or occasional access systems
  • Saves on travel and commuting time and costs
  • Redundant remote access on some systems whom require a third party for remote access
