Good quality video conferencing with a small group of people.

IBM B2B Cloud Services

We have just started to use IBM B2B Cloud Services within our department. We were looking for a cloud-based solution to manage all of our partner's B2B processes within a single interface. We did not want to have to go through the hassle of managing any sort of solution ourselves; thus, we came to the conclusion that a cloud-based solution would work best for our department. So far, we have found that the product has been reliable, and not having to worry about maintenance and patch cycles is always a good thing.

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.

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.

IBM has the better brand name and better customer support. But, one would expect a fine product from such a large organization. Although, it counts good on good customer support, nice sharing and transitioning services; it lacks feature capabilities and providing a strong foundation for large data sets. It has these points missing in it.
