MaestroConference

This is best suited for webinars where you want increase participant engagement. Maestroconference has helped us avoid the type of webinar where the presenter has no idea if people are listening and participants often lose interest and end up checking email. The interaction level can become extremely high leading to increased engagement, satisfaction and buy-in.

Pros

  • Ease of use -- setting up a meeting is quick and simple, and so is presenting. PowerPoints can be pre-loaded into the system and displayed/controlled without screen-sharing. Questions and Answers are easily managed in a platform that allows you to view them in a single pane and dismiss them as you answer.
  • Customization of registration forms -- gather the information you need from your registrants.
  • Live Chat is always quick and helpful.
  • The webinar system is browser-based, even for presenters, so you can present from anywhere without needing to download an application.
  • Built-in time zone converter on our webinar registration pages is useful, as we invite companies worldwide to our webinars.

  • The breakout group technology is phenomenal. It allows a large webinar to feel much more intimate and allows instructors to 'listen in' to small group discussions
  • The ability to poll, have participants raise their hands for questions or comments, control the microphones, see who's talking make facilitating a large group virtual presentation very manageable and interactive. The participants' attention is retained, and did I mention the breakout groups are phenomenal!
  • the social conferencing, where you can see a webcam or still picture of participants is also really helpful for increasing engagement and active participation

Cons

  • Does not work on FIREFOX

  • The only challenge I found with Maestro conference is that sometimes the break out groups function didn't operate as smoothly as I needed it to. People wouldn't always find themselves in groups or they would be switched from one group to another without the host moving them.

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.

If I go back to having calls where I want to have break out groups then I would definitely consider using Maestro conference again. For now this is not a service I need so I have not renewed with Maestro.

Alternatives Considered

Easy to use interface. Easy to share the screen, give someone else the ability to share their screen.

Maestro has everything that GoToMeeting and WebEx has. The primary thing that sold us on Maestroconference was the ability to incorporate breakout groups for small group discussions and explorations. It also is very easy to access and does not require a type of download onto a users' computer for the interactive conference calls. The interface is very intuitive and easy to use and the call quality is high and access is reliable.

Return on Investment

  • AnyMeeting made it easier and faster for me and my team to set up online meetings and conference calls, thus saving quite a bit of time.
  • Due to some over runs of meetings, I have to have a back up service just in case.

  • The biggest positive impact I had with Maestro Conference was the ability for participants to engage with one another.
  • This made my group coaching calls much more engaging. Participants were able to talk with each other and be more actively involved in the calls.
  • Participants formed deeper relationships with one another because they could connect through smaller groups.
