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.

Slack

It is well suited at any small or mid size organization that has multiple ongoing projects with employees working across projects. It allows for improved organization in such companies because you can have the whole team on a project channel so everyone can remain in the loop on any and all progressions—gone are the days of people being able to claim ignorance for not getting something done. Yet, you can still message one or a couple of people at anytime with questions or thoughts that don't apply to the whole project team. I am sure it could work within larger organizations but I have not seen it done.

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.

Slack sitll lacks in functionality. It's better than Skype for Business in many ways, but it is still another chat/message board app. It has limits in free version and paid versions. Also Windows app has errors that bother me, for example, I see number on one of my team's icons. It suggests that one of channels has unread messages; I check all channels - no unread messages, but that "1" still appears

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.

The system does seem to hang quite a bit, completely unrelated to my internet connection, which can get a little annoying when you are in the middle of a conversation and cannot respond and the conversation moves on without you or creates a lull in the discussion that gets everyone off topic.

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.

The only tool I have used for the same purpose is email (Outlook). Slack is much better for management of users because it organizes the conversations in channels, helping to catch up with different tasks in small groups or even to organize meetings with a large number of people. It is an efficient tool to have parallel discussions.

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.

  • Save time due to the notification tool which lets me know when someone is updating something
  • Save time on catching up on specific tasks because of the organization in channels
  • The negative impact I have experienced is when I try to search files that were shared some time ago and I could not find them
