Good quality video conferencing with a small group of people.

Chatter

If you are using Salesforce then Chatter increases the benefits of Salesforce. It leads to improved communication between team members. It is also useful for understanding the background of customers and business for new employees. Users can also get regular updates on Opportunities or Accounts or Cases they are interested in without logging into Salesforce. As an example, if you are heading Sales in California, you can get updates on opportunities in your region in your inbox at the beginning of your day.

Pros

  • Easy to use: The app is very, very easy to use. Literally just create a chat room (input a name) and access it to chat.
  • Call/video quality: I've experienced better call quality on appear.in than in almost all other chat and video conferencing services out there.

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.

Chatter can fulfill at least 85-90% of our business requirements in an easy-to-use platform. Usability is a key requirement and we have had our share of bad usability experiences. In our experience, even the most novice users were able to pick up Chatter in a relatively short amount of time with little/no assistance.

Usability

Based on 1 answer
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

appear.in was the least expensive alternative at the time my company used it. It included the right set of features for what we needed.

We did not consider an alternative for Chatter. It's so embedded and does the job great, so there was no need to consider an alternative

Return on Investment

  • It helped us to connect our team across continents in a very affordable way.
Hernán Silva profile photo
  • Because we already have SalesForce, Chatter was a no-brainer. It's streamlined and entirely integrated into SalesForce enterprise, which is something my organization uses every day.
