AnyMeeting

Honestly, the best webinar platform we've used. We tested at least 6 different webinar platforms before landing on AnyMeeting. It's cost-effective, so easy to use, and the attendees never have an issue.Our presenters have commented that although they had never heard of AnyMeeting, they were impressed once jumping on the platform.

GoToWebinar

GoToWebinar is perfect for businesses who have teachable content. Marketing firms, Real Estate, Education focused businesses, etc. would benefit from using GoToWebinar. Any type of work that people enjoy learning about. It would also be great for college professors to use for online classes. It isn't really suited for a personal use. I would only recommend it to those who work in a corporate setting or in education.

Pros

  • Easy for the audience to log on and participate via chat
  • Automatically records the session, in case you forget
  • Ability to upload slides and pre-load audience polls

  • The quality and clarity of the recordings in GoToWebinar are good. Clients tend to like the sound and visual when they receive the link to watch.
  • GoToWebinar is also really quick with saving and providing a link to watch the webinar almost immediately once the recording is finished. This is great because we are able to quickly push the content out to the rest of the company and our clients.
  • Another thing we enjoy about GoToWebinar is the overall layout of the toolbar during a recording. It is easy to maneuver and even a first time person recording content is able to quickly learn the functions without having to completely walk through it with someone more experienced.

Cons

  • Allowing for slides with animation, but not a big deal.
Kimberly Stabenow profile photo
  • While recording is conveniently streamlined, it can sometimes be too much so. For example, new users may be confused as to where files are being recorded to on the harddrive. That the software saves both the raw and converted file to your HDD without you explicitly picking a folder location is a bit annoying.
  • The software has a harder than expected time reconnecting itself after a temporary drop in connectivity. Too often the affected user will need to close out the applet and rejoin, which can have a negative impact on recordings.
  • We have had trouble installing the software on Macs in the past, and have had to contact customer support. This only happened once, but was quite a hassle.

It works well, and does what it needs to, but there are a few flaws like the sound isn't great. There are fancier, prettier more expensive products that one could use, but this one does the job almost as well. Good value for the money.

Our largest issue with GoTo have been the limitations on recording and using recordings to host a webinar, and the biggest of those is the ability to record. We have had most of our webinars recorded successfully, but when it failed to save, it failed in a big way. Their customer service team was there to help, but they were unable to truly fix the problem.There are, of course, other providers, but as we are still seeing where hosted webinars fit in our marketing strategy, cost is an important factor. Since our company already uses GoToMeeting, it makes more sense for us to stay with the entire suite of products, especially while we are testing the strategy as a whole.

It is very easy to set up and run webinars. Also the training videos that Citrix provides on their website get you up and running in no time. Even if you are not good with computers.

Alternatives Considered

They are actually really similar in functionality and features. If I were looking for an ad-free option for remote conferencing with high definition video I would choose GoToMeeting. But for my team where it isn't necessary to remove the ads, or have video available AnyMeeting meets our needs better than anything else

I think GoToWebinar is more user friendly than Adobe. GoToWebinar is easy to access, and the menus are readily available and easy to understand. I would recommend this program over Adobe any day. I also feel that it is easier for participants to use as well.

Return on Investment

  • Within our unit, we don't actually need to have remote conferences with clients or company big-wigs which would be the only reason we would need to purchase a more professional conferencing service. AnyMeetings' ad-supported services free up money for our team that we are then able to allocate to other software suites that are crucial to us.

  • It has allowed us to provide refresher training to clients without the need to travel to their locations.
  • It allows us to introduce new features quickly to a large number of clients at once.
