Good quality video conferencing with a small group of people.

I think it is well-suited for populations who value social media and being connected in this manner at work. If the population does not value this type of open interaction, it will be underutilized. Many of our baby-boomer generation staff have a hard time seeing the relevancy of a site such as this.

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.

  • I think it helps people crowd source an organization for information and resources that may not be easily found.
  • The subjects feature is a great place to develop communities of practice where links, files and communication can be shared.
  • As long as the search engine is optimized / working effectively, it can be a powerful way to access sites and resources across the organization.

Cons

  • Feature-wise, none that I can think of.
Hernán Silva profile photo
  • The profile finder is glitchy and rarely comes up with solid results.
  • The site sometimes has glitches, such as subject pages not loading and complete content not appearing on the screen until you refresh or give it an abnormal amount of time to load.
  • The "USAID Search" option should appear first for the search results. It is not intuitive that it is the last search option to select. Often users don't even clearly recognize that they need to select types of search results.

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.

Return on Investment

  • It helped us to connect our team across continents in a very affordable way.
Hernán Silva profile photo
  • I feel that it has connected colleagues who would have never met in our global organization.
  • I has created a division in the organization between the users and those who oppose its existence.
  • It has been a great place for communication-oriented departments to get their messages out, advertise events, etc.
