Likelihood to Recommend

AnyMeeting

AnyMeeting is useful for presenting educational or training webinars to prospects, clients, and internal employees. It is also good for phone/web conferences with small groups where sharing a PowerPoint or screenshare would be useful.

Skype

It's well suited to help desk situations, office environments, collaborative situations and overall IRC type situations. One of the biggest reasons we like Skype is the fact it's easy to use, quick, and relatively easy to monitor. I don't believe Skype would do so well in a remote work situation, where a user works from home or from a remote location over a public network. I think Skype really shines in an isolated network where all users are on the same domain / building / geographic area. Our users are spread over 2 states; however, they're all on the same domain and connected by a long haul link directly.

  • It does video calling very well.
  • You can share files easily over the platform.
  • The chat / instant messaging feature was robust.
  • It's very accessible. Users on many platforms can use it.
  • It is reliable. I have not had issues with uptime or charshing.

Cons

  • Since it doesn't require a new scheduled meeting for every call, it doesn't have unique URLs or meeting rooms. This is a blessing and a curse, since if you have back to back meetings and one rund long, the person from a different meeting might accidentally log on to your previous one.
  • There are a few delays during a call for voice and data from time to time

  • I’ve definitely have had connection and picture issues with the software even when the internet was good.
  • I don’t like that some calls were dropped or interrupted at random.
  • If someone does have an Apple product, it is faster and easier to use Facetime, as no logging in is required.

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.

I think so far there is no reason not to renew the license. We have been using Skype for a long time and are very satisfied with it.

Alternatives Considered

Besides different user interfaces, for the most, all of these and AnyMeeting do the same things. The prices vary, but not by much.
Alex Dukhovny profile photo
We use Skype the most for the simplicity of the program, also, everyone is familiar with the program from all over the world due to the global reach and support from Microsoft.

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.
Alex Dukhovny profile photo
  • I really don't like giving out my personal cell phone number. So with Skype, I don't have too and I can still talk with potential customers via voice only or video and voice all for free. This alone, makes Skype a must have for any business period!
