Cisco Webex Board Series

The Cisco Webex board is designed not only for audio/video meetings with sharing needs, but to make collaboration meetings impeccable. Mixed with Webex Meetings and/or Webex App (formerly Webex Teams), you'll get the ultimate collaboration experience. You can keep tracking of all docs/whiteboards you worked on and share it easily across the team. Unfortunately, it is a high end product, so may not fit in all budgets.

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

Cisco Webex Board Series

  • Proximity connection is great, anyone can share to the board easily.
  • The whiteboard feature is great, and being able to save and go back is a great feature.
  • Dialing into meetings with face to face contact brings the participants together.

  • 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

Cisco Webex Board Series

  • If you are not a Webex Teams user there could be an easier way to save the whiteboards. They autosave into Teams but if you don't have that it's a clunky process to email the whiteboard to yourself. Not terrible, but not easy either.
  • They could make a mobile cart for these as you have to do to a third party to get a mobile cart and I would like to see a Cisco version of this.

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

As with all Cisco Support, there is no problem to say. Sometimes its longer but generally in 24 hours, the case is resolved. We never did any RMA for this type of device. We recommended the Cisco support for the Cisco Webex Board. Also, in case of a problem, you have a good Cisco community.

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

Cisco Webex Board Series

Cisco Webex is best integrated between all apps and devices. The Webex boards are specially designed to work with Webex. Other vendors often have apps on not best suited devices and that causes many issues.

Vidyo

Vidyo gives all of the competitors a run for their money. Since it works seamlessly, is easy to use, and has a clean UI. Screenshare could benefit from some work, like the ability to share multiple screens from different users at the same time. The search function could be improved, but overall, it's a great software.

Return on Investment

Cisco Webex Board Series

  • Hard to say...! To be honest, this a toy for big kids!
  • Price is high, so you must have collaboration needs, not only meetings needs to pay for that plus value.

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).
