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.

WebEx Meetings

WebEx Meetings is well suited in an environment where you would want to meet with people in different states/countries and be able to fully immerse the team in a meeting (video chat, screen sharing, etc.). This platform is very robust and might not be necessary in an environment where you simply need to get on a call with people and discuss things.

Pros

  • Connecting via the computer - this easy and so simple, just a couple of clicks.
  • Using multiple technologies - Amazon Chime also allows you to use a phone for dial-in audio. I enjoy this as my computer microphone and speakers are not the best sometimes.
  • Scheduling meetings - this is such an easy function for one time meetings or recurring.

  • It is very easy to set up a webex meeting. This allows teams to quickly get together and on the same page during critical events
  • Webex is a robust platform offering a variety of options to connect. Whether you're travelling or in office there's a way to dial in and begin sharing
  • Webex is reliable. Along with the ease of use this platform never fails us and always delivers.

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.

  • Some of the products this platform is developed to work on can be a pain to get launched and connected at times. General use and setup is easy but some of the cisco integrations are a little tedious
  • the software itself is a little 'busy', unlike some of the other meeting platforms there are a large amount of options available, and while this is a benefit for some, some of the less frequent users might find it a bit difficult.

I did not implement it, only used it, so I can't really comment on how it was implemented.

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.

WebEx is simply more robust than GoToMeeting. There's more functionality just in general. The downside to this is GoToMeeting is very very simple to use and implement, while it doesnt have the numerous integrations, for general sharing and meeting it is a simpler platform. WebEx as mentioned is more robust, they both have their use cases and WebEx is a better platform for technical sharing and collaboration

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.

  • Ability for multiple countries to communicate in an efficient manner to accommodate business needs.
  • Ability to provide web training to staff working remotely or staff who are not able to travel can still participate in meetings which saves money on travel expenses.
  • Ability to provide clients with a clear, accurate presentation over a live web session which again saves money on travel expenses.
  • One minor impact is that some competitors are less costly.
