BuzzCast is great for large, complex online events - especially during the pandemic when it's been hard or impossible to gather folks in person.If you only need a smaller group of 5 or 10 people, BuzzCast is probably overkill. Once you have lots of people / multiple sessions, or want to capture and save presentations for later, you'll want to start looking at BuzzCast.

Webex Events

Cisco Webex Events is well suited for internal meetings or all-staff presentations. I would not recommend it be used for client-facing or stakeholder presentations, education seminars or any particular event where a branding opportunity would be valuable (since this is unavailable in Webex Events)

Pros

BuzzCast

  • The BuzzCast platform was excellent in every way.
  • The platform is sleek and easy to use, both the backend and the UX.
  • The entire team at BuzzCast is supportive and works hard to make your event a complete success.
  • Building and deploying the conference was made easy by the expertise and hard-working BuzzCast staff.
Oz Weaver | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webex Events

  • Training - trusted platform for training purposes
  • Real-time - remote participants can provide real-time feedback via voice or chat
  • Interface - the interface is fairly simple and easy to understand for someone who has never used the platform before. The barrier to entry is relatively low.

Cons

BuzzCast

  • Within the platform it would be great to have direct access to make edits changes (I believe this functionality is in process)
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webex Events

  • WebEx lacks some capability and functionality compared to other products available (i.e. Adobe Connect).
  • The video output that WebEx produces are in a format that is not universal (.arf). This means that editing the video can be somewhat troublesome.
  • WebEx sometimes has issues loading with certain browsers.

Now it is a very reliable tool that we need, and we have to buy it as most of the organization uses it nowadays.

Cisco Webex Events allows us to connect with internal and external users. Cisco Webex Events is easy to use and set up. It has great video and audio quality. It has always been available for our scheduled events. And COVID-19, has allowed us to continue conducting our panel discussions and focus groups to keep new product development moving forward at a rapid pace.

WebEx is available 24/7, as long as the user has a reliable internet connection and the WebEx servers are up (they are typically up when we need it).

The support I received was not that great. I've never spoken to a live person before, instead, I've only used their support portal. It answers a few FAQs but for the most part, it's lacking lots of potential information. This section titled "Popular Topics" could be improved upon and would help users to self-correct versus reaching out to someone at Webex with their issues.

Alternatives Considered

BuzzCast

BuzzCast platform has the most amount of features that our events require (public chat/private chat, breakouts, auto-scrolling agenda). The entire platform is built and designed so that it's intuitive for our viewers and they are shown exactly how to operate the platform in under a minute. The quality of the stream is superior. The BuzzCast team is great to work with and are true partners who are all solution-oriented.

Our company tried RingCentral before switching over to Webex Events. Both are very similar when it comes to providing a platform to allow people to communicate with one another. Overall, Webex provided us with a much simpler interface to navigate. Webex also presented us with close to no technical issues whereas RingCentral gave us constant issues during meetings and events.

Return on Investment

BuzzCast

  • BuzzCast enabled one of my clients to deliver an investors' meeting that resulted in a $10 billion increase in market cap
Mitch Kirsch | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webex Events

  • We are currently only using Webex Events for webinars with external clients or stakeholders, since it is too cost prohibitive to use it internally.
  • Webex Events is cost prohibitive even for use with only external users, given that there are similar tools with similar functionality at lower price points.
  • Webex Events has enabled us to reach users far and wide, but is not unique in its ability to do this.
