Launching and executing a webinar is easy and takes literally five seconds. The entire user experience is virtually seamless, with a platform that's loaded with detailed statistics. You even have access to live online support that will assist you instantly (from your webinar room).

Well suited scenario: Helping my graduates who aren't very "platform knowledgeable" to effectively download and navigate the app with only verbal directions....and not having to be there in person to do a "hand-over-hand" approach. less appropriate scenario: getting frequent notifications for conversations that I wasn't following or a part of. It would have been nice to delete those discussions so I wouldn't have to scroll through.

Pros

ClickMeeting

  • Professional Live Interface - One of the reasons we chose ClickMeeting was how professional it looked from the viewer's experience. Our client is very small, but the interface makes them look like a top-notch firm to viewers.
  • Customization - Our client didn't have to forego their brand for a service, they were able to make it work for them. Also ties in with my point above.
  • Easy Event Creation - Takes no time at all to plan/schedule an event or meeting.

  • The app keeps everyone up-to-date with real-time notifications of how participants are viewing presentations, promotions and notices
  • It enables exhibitors to view participants, including competitors, before going live in order to ensure equal opportunity and better understanding of how best to operate
  • The meeting forums, such as integrated Zoom, were robust enough technology for those with cutting-edge gear as well as those less tech-savvy who might have older components as they worked for all types of hardware.
  • The app seemed to capture the "Community" feeling one gets when attending a live show with personal messages, public and private message groups, introductory procedures and an all-inclusive design suitable for any user

Cons

ClickMeeting

  • As with most new software, ClickMeeting did create a learning curve for many of the employees - thus training was necessary.
  • Our company is contracted by the Federal Government, thus a lot of our information needs to be kept private. Some of our high-level management have noticed that ClickMeeting only provides 128-bit AES encryption, which we feel can be improved upon.
  • Some of our remote users have found that ClickMeeting has some lag-time when using it on their android devices.

  • Missing functionality: cannot automatically issue CE certificates.
  • Missing functionality: must generate a large report and filter out to see who has viewed which sessions and for how long. Also, the attendees themselves cannot see what they have or haven't viewed so they are continuously requesting this report, which we have to filter each and every time.
  • I worry about the accuracy of the report and when I expressed my issues I was told someone would get back to me, but they never did. I had several attendees who viewed sessions that did not show up on the report.
  • Whova has an "Organizer" app where meeting organizers can ask questions and give each other advice. Once I entered the above info, I was immediately blocked from the organizer app and no longer had any access whatsoever.
  • Also, we have to create a separate CE certificate for each and every attendee. Very time consuming and we are unsure of the attendance report accuracy. Makes us look incompetent.
  • Overall I like Whova but this is currently not a great fit for companies that need to track for continuing education. It is missing key features. We would use it again if we didn't have to track attendees' time and attendance. It falls short on those features and therefore becomes very time consuming. Also, we could not be assured that Whova is working in the direction to have these features in the future.

It has extremely limited customization; it is buggy; it sends stray emails you do not know are being sent and that are not customized, leaving your clients/speakers/moderators confused. The Exhibitor and Sponsor sections are considered separate functions but are similarly set up and have different sub charges. Exhibitors can set up their own pages but Sponsors cannot. Neither can see what their page looks like unless you do it for them. There is no need for these areas to be separate--it's not like my sales team has a different sales rep for sponsor banners and exhibits. These areas need to be combined and they need to have a way to preview their setup. Having the Exhibitor be able to set up their own page is a HUGE benefit, but it's only half-baked in its implementation. It is a HUGE disappointment once you figure out the limitations eliminate the benefit.

It was a great experience. A last minute change for our organization that has a conference every other year. I was disappointed that the conference was not going to happen this year. Then didn't expect much when it was changed to an online conference. What a surprise. It was great! So much more than I expected.

Alternatives Considered

ClickMeeting

Vimeo is the closest competitor to our organization. Vimeo hosts our online video library and luckily, it communicates with ClickMeeting well. If the demand for live webinars no longer existed, Vimeo would be next in line. However, at this time ClickMeeting remains our #1 due to integration, ease of access and design.

Buzz is difficult. I wish we could use Whova for teaching because it is so simple and mobile! I can't even get my classes uploaded easily on the Buzz platform. Can Whova increase its usages to include online teaching for the K-12 levels? That would be amazing!

Return on Investment

ClickMeeting

  • It was an affordable software for what it delivered. We would have kept using it if the webinars had worked to drive business, or if we'd been able to drive more people to the webinars. Not ClickMeeting's fault. Great return on the investment in my mind.

  • I didn't pay to use the technology; was a recipient as a result of attending a conference. HIGH ROI for me as a made a number of new contacts even though I spent the first full day listening to presentations. Having the app allowed me to do the networking I came to do without having to be seated next to the person I wanted to meet.
