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.

Zoom

Zoom is perfectly equipped to handle internal and external meetings. The settings that they have built-in make it so simple to adjust and have exactly the type of meeting you'd like to have. The video feature is incredible where you can interact as well as the screen-share feature. We have only run into a few problems with Zoom on the recording aspect of it so maybe consider have a separate recording running.

Pros

  • Easy to set up a meeting.
  • Easy to record a call for reference by members who could not make the meeting live.
  • Easy to host a meeting.
  • The reminders that are automatically sent are wonderful to make sure everyone arrives on time to a call/meeting.
  • The reminders have sufficient and easy to follow directions to attend a meeting, even for a first time user.

  • Record sessions
  • You can record your calls on your computer or in the cloud.
  • You can have multiple people talking on a call.

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

  • User experience in scheduling - Every time I go to export to a Google calendar, it makes me re-auth my account then opens the wrong calendar as I'm logged into multiple Google accounts.
  • Recording editing - Could use some more robust tools for editing a recorded video/audio before export.
  • Air time recording - Does not automatically cut out muted segments with only one participant in recordings.

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.

Zoom is the most intuitive and useable platform we've yet encountered. I was not onboard with my current company for very long before we picked Zoom, but the difference in support calls I had to take before and after we switched to Zoom was astounding. People seem to get Zoom very quickly.

There have been less than a handful of outages during our two years with Zoom, and whenever there was one, an email informing us of the outage went out immediately, and they had the issue resolved shortly thereafter.

Zoom has among the best performance of any video conference platform, as I've mentioned several times. Besides that, their Chat platform works great, and their back end always runs smooth. It's unfortunate that reporting can now only be done by one month at a time, but nonetheless, it only takes a second to run any kind of Zoom report, whether it's an attendee report, Poll results, a user report, a list of meetings from the past month, etc.

Zoom's support is truly world class. And I'm not sure if that's because my company was an early adopter, but nonetheless, they're very helpful. If we encounter some kind of bug (a rare event), it's not long before the engineering team gets back to me with a fix. If I want to submit a feature request, a rep gets back to me instantly saying that it's now on their scope (and then it gets added to the product shortly after). If I have a question about some feature, Zoom support always has a speedy answer.They're very good at giving detailed release notes any time there's an update, and their documentation is always great.

If you receive any pushback from higher ups, point to any of the various positive reviews like this one. Or show Zoom's excellent Gartner report, or articles describing Zoom's partnership with Sequoia capital. It's not difficult to show how Zoom is a trustworthy industry leader with best-in-class technology.

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
Zoom blew all the others (GoToMeeting, Skype, Google Hangouts, UberConference) out of the water. Free consumer solutions didn't have the reliability, scheduling, privacy, recording, or headcount capabilities that Zoom boasts. GoToMeeting and Webex are old and clunky to use, though everyone already has the software installed it seems. UberConference was SUPER flaky. It had terrible connections whenever we did calls outside of NA, especially to Israel. Buffering, audio cut outs, etc. Zoom was everything we wanted at a great price point.

Because the Basic licenses are completely free, and because it's very easy to configure and install Zoom, and because anyone can join Zoom from a link without needing an account, scaling is a Breeze. There are absolutely no roadblocks. My company keeps adding more Zoom Pro license every week since it's so in demand. We were able to convert users from several different platforms onto Zoom with no trouble at all.

Return on Investment

  • We've acquired hundreds of new leads through our webinar platform, which is made easy by AnyMeeting.
Kimberly Stabenow profile photo
  • Our staff is 100% remotely based, so if it was not for Zoom, we would never be able to see our clients face-to-face. In so many ways it's helpful to be able to put a face to a name, and to see all of the non-verbal communication that our clients are giving us. Many times they need to see that we're human too, not just bots, and that greatly enhances our relationships. I would say that it allows us to know our client's personalities better, which results in us being able to serve them more completely.
  • Training new staff in a remote environment is difficult, but Zoom's screen sharing abilities greatly helps with that! Since it's so easy to switch the screen share back and forth, I can have a 1-on-1 meeting with a staff person, show them something on my computer, and then switch it to them so that they can show me what they learned on their computer. It's great that it's real time and easy to do. The staff's retention is better, which ultimately means our bottom line is increased.
