FoxDen tended to work slightly better for very small video conferences. The audio was typically reliable, so it would be ok to use for audio conferencing. It is definitely not ready for prime time: it cannot handle very large conferences. It didn't seem ready to be used on mobile either. I also think it's better suited for a smaller company.

FreeConference.com is best suited when the big-name video conferencing brands are simply not working. It offers an alternative when compatibility seems to be an issue when attempting to video conference. It is less appropriate for first invitations since most people are not familiar with the brand.

  • I love the ability to make long distance calls without charge.
  • I was delighted when they added the ability to screen share and show my slides to my customers.
  • I also love that FreeConference.com immediately provides replays of your meetings - in case somebody wasn't able to attend live.

Cons
PGi (Premiere Global Services, Inc.)
  • Horrible video quality. It basically never worked, and we stopped using the video feature.
  • Buggy behavior all the time. Dropped calls, loss of screen sharing, rendered unusable most of the time.
  • Poor response by the vendor to issues. The answer was basically "we know it's unusable, and we're trying to figure that out. There's nothing we can do right now."

  • Not being able to use 800 number (toll free).
  • The website interface could be spruced up a bit.

Alternatives Considered
PGi (Premiere Global Services, Inc.)
I believe they selected FoxDen because we use ReadyTalk for voice conferencing and FoxDen represented a cost savings compared to our previous Skype for Business investment. However, in the end, most of our company has abandoned ever using FoxDen and, instead, still uses all of the products listed above (Skype for Business, Google Hangouts, Slack) or just plain ReadyTalk voice conferencing.

Call quality is very similar to the above products. However, most of our community partners and collaborators are not aware of FreeConference and are thus less able to utilize it without prompting and sometimes assistance from us.

Return on Investment
PGi (Premiere Global Services, Inc.)
  • Increased the length of our meetings due to copious amounts of time spent trying to fix the video and screen sharing.
  • Added frustration for everyone who attempted to use it.
  • Ultimately resulted in a lot of money lost on video equipment that everyone stopped using in favor of voice-only conferencing due to the faulty video.
