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.

ContactOffice

A little costly, but it gives a lot of features that help day to day work problems. It will help you get your documents, notes, etc. from anywhere if you are in a meeting. Gives you a free trial so that you can check whether it is a perfect product for you. It will connect you with your group, and help you share ideas, manage meetings, and take notes

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

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.

It stacks up with other software in terms of bugs and requirements. It is a well developed product which helps solve real life problems of connecting with people and sharing documents. Can access from anywhere in the world, just need a browser and internet. The problem with it is just that it doesn't have a mobile app, which is a requirement nowadays.
