    Chanty

    Chanty is very good for networking messaging and low level collaboration between peers and colleagues. It's not great for video or voice calls or whiteboarding or file sharing.

    Vidyo

    I've had HR professionals ask about using it for interviews. Gone are the days where we have to spend hundreds of dollars to fly candidates in or limit ourselves to phone interviews. Vidyo with it's high reliability has saved the organization thousands in travel costs with candidate recruitment. Business meetings that can often be troubling to get leaders and executive all in one room, Vidyo has functioned extraordinarily well in bringing in people from home, on the road, or the airport. Mobile capabilities are easy and fast.Quick daily calls and chats in the office are probably best suited for the free options out there as Vidyo is not a free service like others. Better yet general phone calls will suffice.

    Pros

    Chanty

    • Notifications
    • App loading speed
    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Vidyo

    • I didn't have to sign up, I just need to log into the "room" I was supposed to, so unlike Skype or other instruments, I didn't need to spend time and create my own account.
    • To be honest, the largest online class I've attended had 10 people in it (besides the teacher), but it was a good quality connection.
    • I enjoyed the ability to ask questions or clarifications in the chat (without having to turn on my microphone, so that the teacher could answer the question when he/she finished the thought).

    Cons

    Chanty

    • Ability to call group members
    • Ability to video members
    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Vidyo

    • The design and the branding give little to be desired
    • Customer support is below average
    • The API must be rewritten and add more functions that are commonly requested.
    • Project codes are not well maintained and hard to find.

    Though not as widely used as Zoom or Google Hangouts, it is very competitive as far as features and usability

    I have been sent quite a few emails about functionality and support on a pretty regular basis, which is great. I have not had any need to contact support as the platform is pretty simple to use, it was easy to download and install and I have not encountered any bugs or other issues so far.

    We have an internal tech team dedicated to setup and troubleshooting of Vidyo. This makes it very easy, because we have access to our own employees for help. Rarely have I or anyone I work with had to escalate something to Vidyo themselves, and we're lucky to have the internal administrators that run the show. Almost like Vidyo is ours and ours alone.

    Alternatives Considered

    Chanty

    In terms of file sharing and speed of collaboration, I find that Slack is quicker and integration into Google Drive is very handy when it comes to working on documents, I have not seen Chanty do this. As for video Google Hangouts is as simple as it gets; again, I have not seen anything from Chanty in this area. I have also looked at and use https://guild.co/ which is much easier messaging and collaboration wise. The app and notification for Chanty is pretty good but it's loading time is slower compared to Slack and WhatsApp.
    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Vidyo

    Vidyo is better than the competitors for large meetings with many participants, due to ease of use for participants - everything in-browser has a very low threshold. Due to its lack of breakout rooms, it is less suited for smaller (or internal) meetings, where you can expect everyone to install a client.

    Return on Investment

    Chanty

    • Increased visibility
    • Increased opportunities
    Marc Duke | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Vidyo

    • It did help us reach the objective of education - after a while, everyone had a chance to connect and the quality of video/audio once you're in is great. It's just getting there that isn't up to par (but hopefully would be changed in next versions).
