I actually like to use this as training for onboarding new talent. The webinars are incredibly useful. But sometimes face-to-face training and coaching are more suitable for the healthcare environment we operate in.

Zoom Video Webinar

Some specific scenarios where Zoom Video Webinar is well suited would be for group training and presentation meetings.For group training, it allowing participants to ask questions and presenting content without any hiccups. You can gauge the participation level and share content like PDFs/slides/etc. You can also invite additional hosts and have multiple cameras if you have a Q&A style session. I even know of colleges that use Zoom to connect multiple classrooms in different cities together.For presentations with clients/companies - it just works! Any computer with access to a browser can get it to work - no messy configurations or long installs. I can share the zoom link with them and see them in the room within 2-3 minutes. Try that with Skype/GoToWebinar, and it'll take 10-15 minutes of installing, account creation, and other annoying setups. We can whiteboard, draw things out, share a screen with a Google Document... it's great.Zoom Video Webinar isn't a replacement for live training. No technology is.

Pros

BrightTALK

  • It expands our audience by allowing us to tap into their database of users.
  • It is easy to use and is reliable. We don't have any technical issues.
  • It has robust reporting that provides a lot of data on attendees.
Charles Rogel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoom Video Webinar

  • Zoom handles multiparticipant meetings very well through a centralized screen that allows you to see all participants, conduct group or individual chat sessions during the meeting and allows anyone to share documents in the meeting.
  • The chat feature in Zoom is very helpful during a meeting for discreetly reaching out to another colleague in the meeting when you want to share verify or validate something before announcing publicly in the meeting. It's great to have sideline conversations that are relevant to myself and another colleague in the meeting without disturbing the meeting.
  • The video features of Zoom are great! Since many of my meetings are conducted virtually, it's nice to see and talk with someone via Zoom's video feature to make our conversations more personal and meaningful

Cons

BrightTALK

  • The user interface can be a bit tricky at times, as you have to dig down to find certain information. However, it is a robust interface and the information is there.
  • Some features, like adding questions or resources, have cut-off windows, so you cannot make last-minute additions or changes.
  • The bridge occasionally drops speakers, and this can be disconcerting to presenters. However, it does not happen too often.

Zoom Video Webinar

  • The chat feature is by far the worst part of Zoom, you can't adjust text size or color or allow for multiple chat room within the same meeting (for groups or breakouts )
  • The Polling Feature could probably use more variety at this time. It def lags behind tools like Adobe Connect there. Also, the creation of Polls during a live session can generally be fairly cumbersome.
  • The 40 minute time limit for the basic account can be a pain point and it seems fairly pointless as a user can just restart the meeting immediately once the time expires. There is probably a more effective way to limit the Basic account for the PRO

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.

Alternatives Considered

BrightTALK

It is easy to use and very popular, yes, but a bit too mainstream for us in our industry. BrightTALK it's more sophisticated and it's content and feels more professional to us.

Zoom Video Webinar

I prefer Zoom Video Webinar over Skype for three main reasons 1) the user interface is intuitive and easy to use 2) video and audio quality are much better than Skype, and 3) the basic version is free. I find business meetings over Zoom much more enjoyable than those over Skype. The Skype interface changes frequently, and it always takes me a moment to figure out where the screen sharing button is or how to get to the messaging page. With Zoom, however, those features are much easier to find.

Return on Investment

BrightTALK

  • We have grown our audience by at least 50%
Charles Rogel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoom Video Webinar

  • We have met with and started relationships with many third party vendors via meetings with Zoom Video Webinar. These have all had a tremendous positive impact on our business.
  • All of our remote employees have used Zoom to stay in touch and basically "be present" at meetings for the last couple years. Everyone loves Zoom and realizes its value to our company.
  • Zoom also allows us to stay up to date with all of our other offices around the world. This goes hand in hand with my previous point about remote employees, but it also allows the heads of our offices to meet in person whenever necessary.
