Likelihood to Recommend

appear.in

It is well suited in videoconferences with few participants. It is less appropriate in videoconferences with more than four participants or webinars. In that case, I would recommend software with more functions. In our company, we use appear.in as a second option. We have a more robust software, but it does not allow simultaneous meetings. In that case, we use appear.in.

Blizz

Blizz would be useful for any meeting requiring people to join from different sites using different devices and platforms. The connectivity is as seamless as I have seen in any conferencing software. The secured connection means that Blizz is ideal for any meeting involving sensitive data (probably the majority of meetings). When some participants are not particularly tech-oriented, the intuitive interface makes it easy for them to use all the key features.

Pros

  • Very easy to use.
  • Very easy to create an account.
  • It has the same basic features as other robust programs.
Leonardo Barbosa Corrêa profile photo
  • Very effective linking of different devices. Easy to join from anywhere/any device by just entering the meeting ID.
  • Minimal, intuitive interface that takes very little getting used to. I skipped the help section and still figured everything out within a couple of minutes.
  • Pairs with Outlook so you can view all your existing contacts from within Blizz. Really saves time and stops anyone being missed out.
  • Can support up to 300 participants.
  • Reasonable pricing structure. Free for personal use and still good value for the higher-level packages. You can also add local numbers for free.
  • Live text chat for use during a meeting if you have something to say but don’t want to interrupt the presenter.
  • A secured connection so there are no issues sending sensitive documents etc.
  • The audio and video quality has always been excellent (although I’ve come to expect this from any conferencing software nowadays).

Cons

  • Allow more participants online in the videoconference.

We are using a larger tool suite that already includes video conferencing instead of our older approach of using different apps from different vendors.appear.in has a simple but great set of features but its pricing scheme is not as scalable as we really need in a 500+ employee company.

Usability

Very easy to use, technical and non-technical colleagues have used it with no instructions needed. That says all about the app and services.

Alternatives Considered

It is a very simple tool. It can be accessed by all very fast. Sometimes we do more than one videoconference simultaneously and appear.in helps a lot as a second option, especially with few participants.

We used Skype before, but find Blizz a better all-round experience with many additional functions.

Return on Investment

  • Sometimes we do more than one videoconference simultaneously. Appear In helps a lot as a second option, especially with few participants.
  • When our main system failed, we used appear.in so that the meeting could be held.

  • Blizz ensures that my service quality rating is not compromised due to bad connectivity. Return on investment is 100%.
  • Blizz has a modern and simple design. This makes it easy for the user to get started as there is no learning curve.
  • Remote screen share is slick and the Blizz controls on-screen take up minimal space, taking nothing away from the user experience.
