I mentioned that during the last two years, a lot of the training we do at my business was impacted, just like a lot of companies. My biggest thing was getting everyone on the same page, and I feel some software does that better than others. With Cloudshare, It allowed me especially to see an accurate snapshot of what was going on with the learning portion of the work that we do by making it easy to digest what was going on in my workplace.

If you need to communicate through multiple apps e.g. Gmail, Slack, Whats App, and you want everything in one place - Firework is definitely your thing. Also perfect for people who have to track the time they spend on certain tasks. Firework would be useless for people who don't care about productivity and getting things done as fast as possible.

  • You have to pay for the most useful features
  • Lack of extensions (there are basic things like ad-block, but if you need something specific you'll have a hard time)
  • It's not clear how and where exactly the passwords are stored

I just felt that Azure had little to no help on the base tiers, whereas with Cloudshare, I felt a fuller "user experience" as it pertains to getting help when I and when my team needed it. I think that was the biggest and main thing in my opinion. In this software space, sometimes the little things can be the difference in picking one software over the other, and that basically was it for us!

Return on Investment
CloudShare
  • We save time as we can keep virtual classrooms always ready.
  • It may vary according to the usage scenario, but the user interface is comfortable. When you go into a little detail, you may not need counseling for initial use.
  • You can manage the jobs that you would do multiple times on other platforms at once from here.
  • All of these actually give you a profit. Time wasted, less application usage, less resource consumption, etc.
