Likelihood to Recommend

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.

  1. How fast can I implement it fully for an organisation?
  2. How many hours must I invest to get it up and running?
  3. How does it compare to the competitors similar software?
  4. Once up and running how much time and money will it cost me?
From the point of how it looks I would like to use it. As it is part of the Novell suite I would like to use it as I have already paid for it. So in conclusion with the help of Novell I might be able to implement it the way I want it but without extra cost.

Cons

  • Allow more participants online in the videoconference.
Leonardo Barbosa Corrêa profile photo
  • The app needs some enhancements (i.e. phone numbers aren't touch-and-call)
  • There can only be one global landing page. Meaning you can't have users go directly to their department page. Our work-around was putting links to their pages on the global landing page.
  • The Photo Album capability is cumbersome.
  • Blogs seemed to be the only way to successfully set up a landing page as it offered the most flexibility.

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.

It works and we have invested quite a bit of time in customizing the product. Most other products would incur quite a jump in expenses.

Usability

Very easy to use, technical and non-technical colleagues have used it with no instructions needed. That says all about the app and services.

At this moment it still looks you need to do a lot to be able to use it and to be honest that time should be used for work not for configuring a communication tool for the business. Yes I understand that it takes time to learn something to use in the organisation , but with this tool I see the help desk having to answer a lot of questions on how to use it or once someone has done something how to undo it.

The implementation was good, it is the follow up that we need to do ourselves that takes time and effort.

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.

We are a mixed shop (Microsoft and Novell). We had the entire Novell suite and realized Novell Vibe was included. After meeting with Novell and learning what Vibe had to offer for collaboration and application integration, and since we wouldn't incur have any additional costs, we decided to try it before looking at other solutions. We are happy with our decision.

Return on Investment

  • Sometimes we do more than one videoconference simultaneously. Appear In helps a lot as a second option, especially with few participants.
  • When our main system failed, we used appear.in so that the meeting could be held.

  • It has improved communication. Before often people who needed to know certain things weren't getting the information, now it is delivered automatically.
  • Made forms more efficient.
