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

Splashtop does the job, quite simply. At times, I have had extremely compliance heavy clients that the "powers that be" have disabled remote access to. Splashtop is the only software that can consistently work and provide secure remote access. I can back this software as it has the same features as its competitors.

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.

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.

LogMeIn is the "gold standard" for remote access software. That comes at a steep premium in the current day. ScreenConnect is an amazing tool that is very quick and effective. TeamViewer is one of the only remaining "free" holdouts (for non-business purposes). Kaseya's VSA remote access tool leaves a lot to be desired. Splashtop is firming in the middle as it holds it's own with performance and features, whereas price is much better than LogMeIn.

  • Splashtop is a great asset for the compliance heavy clients especially. Even if this isn't the "primary" remote access tool, it needs to be ready to employ.
  • Depending on the tier of software, all of the features needed are available and at your disposal.
