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.

ContactOffice handles almost all data, all files like doc, pdf, mp3 etc. Task management. Worksection is an all-around project management app that gives users visibility and organization. ContactOffice is a contact management software that helps you to easily manage your data from any computer with a web browser. Worksection is Free: no charge. ContactOffice offers four plans for its Individual version. ContactOffice has more supported Integrations than Worksection.
