eTouches seems to be well positioned to serve those needing event registration for small groups up to large conventions. Events with multiple sessions are very well organized and allows the planners to monitor registration and attendance with ease. One issue we have run into is the ability to give a discount to a specific registrant who signs up a group of individuals. We continue to work for a solution to this.

I've used Zoom Webinars for meetings and webinars from two people to 500 people. It has worked well and reliably in each scenario! I especially appreciate that viewers can turn on closed captions if they need them or can have the language translated. That makes this very helpful for our teammates that need that type of assistance.

Pros
Aventri (formerly etouches)
  • Manages class size limits very well.
  • Provides information for hotel booking and transfers so that all this information is in one record.
  • Unlimited number of pages for the website is invaluable - we looked at other programs with only 4 pages for the website and that just isn't enough for our clients.

  • Simple user experience--very intuitive for attendees to join, interact with Q&A
  • Adaptable and feature rich--very easy to set up Webinars for different use cases with features like registration, Q&A, practice session, HQ video, branding and virtual backgrounds, polls/quizzes, post-surveys, breakouts, resources, production studio, FB/YT Live, captions/translation, etc
  • Aesthetically pleasing--new branding options (such as webinar wallpaper, custom backgrounds, and name tags), plus the recent addition of the Production Studio feature, means it's easier than ever to produce beautiful and appealing webinars.
  • Panelists, practice session, and backstage--Zoom makes it easy to set up webinar panelists ahead of time, and get them into the room early for a practice session. The new backstage option is even more powerful than the practice session feature.
  • The bleeding edge--Zoom is continually adding powerful new features for Webinar rooms, where other programs leave you with the same ol' stagnant feature set.

  • Not intuitive for users

  • Limitation for BASIC User : Zoom currently have 100 participants limit and 45 minute meeting limit for Basic users but I think it must have to be increased in order to have a more brief look over its working
  • Cloud Storage For Basic User : Zoom doesn't provide any cloud storage for your recordings for Basic Users, while MS Teams does, and I think that where zoom can make improvements.
  • Video Presentation : Zoom lacks performance at the time of video presentation. Video lags at the time of presentation.

We will be renewing with Zoom as long as it continues to meet our needs for client and lead outreach needs in a robust manner. With little error and an easy to use interface, Zoom has met our needs and exceeded our expectations. The cost is right and with a short learning curve, Zoom has been an easy decision to make and maintain.

This is one of the strongest point i choose Zoom because it is easy to use and someone who is not used to technology can also operate it at hand. i interacted with many startups throughout my tenure of working on Zoom they easily adopted it usability functions and were satisfied by its performance.

Support Rating
Aventri (formerly etouches)
I had a few issues while onsite (over the weekend). The support information given to me was incorrect and I had a hard time tracking down how to get assistance while onsite (on a weekend). When you are onsite, issues are usually heightened and need an immediate response, and I didn't get that.

We loved CVENT and DoubleDutch, but it was much easier to have all the modules we needed in one platform, which happened to be Aventri.

Go To Webinar has been the standard in webinar technology for years. But it's a terrible experience from an administrator's perspective. You start the program, and 15 windows pop-up, giving you all sorts of configuration choices. In order to operate a webinar smoothly, we needed 4 members on the team (1 speaker, 1 moderator, 2 people managing any tech unknowns and set things up.) Zoom Webinar can be done with a single person because of how easy the options are. Also, put GoToWebinar in front of somebody new - and watch them fumble for 15 minutes trying to figure out how to present. Zoom, there's not much to explain. Everything is clearly laid out with a clean UX design.

Return on Investment
Aventri (formerly etouches)
  • Much more thorough reporting than previous provider.
  • The ability for long term goal creation based on the objectives evaluated post conference.

  • I am a user of Zoom, not an administrator, so I can't speak to it's ROI outside of how it effectively allows me to conduct presentations with groups of people I wouldn't normally have in the same room.
  • Zoom has a very positive impact on keeping me connected with my colleagues in a more human way through the use of video and audio when we are conducting meetings. This helps strengthen work relationships so there are less misunderstandings from email or text only systems.
  • Zoom has allowed my company with remote employees all over the place, in addition to multiple physical office locations, conduct quarterly meetings with our CEO that make everyone feel involved.
