Good quality video conferencing with a small group of people.

ClickMeeting

Webinars - We used these for brand awareness, content creation, and lead generation. All three crucial aspects of growing a business. Meetings - Especially if someone is remote, this was an easy solution to feeling like everyone was in the same room.Training - Similar to webinars, delivering information at once to an audience. Less suited for meetings where everyone is physically present, it's less of a method of shifting through PowerPoint slides and more of a collaborative environment.

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.

  • It worked very well for holding the webinars. We never had any outage issues or bugs. The chat worked well and was easy to customize in times where we were hiding the chat vs opening it up for everyone.
  • The UI was very straight forward as well and didn't require people to download a whole application to watch.
  • The presentation capabilities were numerous, you could show a slide deck from Google, a PowerPoint doc, or a video seamlessly.

Cons

  • Feature-wise, none that I can think of.
Hernán Silva profile photo
  • If you were using multiple monitors, you had to run the meeting off of the your primary one, or you wouldn't be able to see the mouse move around in the presentation, which was a problem for our online demoes. I use a laptop and larger monitor, so running the demo off the small laptop screen wasn't ideal.

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.

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.
Hernán Silva profile photo
ClickMeeting offers the most comprehensive feature set with the most affordable price, every time. It's robust, allows for custom branding, and - most importantly - is routinely stable. Other platforms require bulky downloads, allow little in the way of branding, and can sometimes be spotty.

Return on Investment

  • It helped us to connect our team across continents in a very affordable way.
Hernán Silva profile photo
  • It was an affordable software for what it delivered. We would have kept using it if the webinars had worked to drive business, or if we'd been able to drive more people to the webinars. Not ClickMeeting's fault. Great return on the investment in my mind.
