FoxDen (Discontinued)

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.

It's great for virtually meeting with people in other cities/countries. It's terrific how they provide so many international numbers for people to use!

Pros

FoxDen (Discontinued)

  • Easy to join meetings
  • Audio is fairly reliable
  • Moderately easy to host meetings

FreeConference.com

  • You can subscribe in a couple clicks and that gives you access, for free, to unlimited conference calls within the US and a selection of other countries (premium accounts give access to all countries - but the free service is already quite amazing).
  • The quality of the calls is a sure benefit. One might expect for it to be poor as I did specifically because of the cost.
  • You can use your numbers without setting up a new conference call every time.
  • You can also schedule a conference and get reminded.

Cons

FoxDen (Discontinued)

  • 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."

  • Early on (many years ago), I occasionally had some trouble getting everyone onto the same call. But that's only happened a couple of times many moons ago.

Alternatives Considered

FoxDen (Discontinued)

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.

FreeConference.com

I selected freeconferences.com at the time because I didn't have access to my webex account and I was crunched for time . I was a bit amazed/"Taken back" as i wondered why this wasn't protocol already. The platform is easy, free, a no-brainer.

Return on Investment

FoxDen (Discontinued)

  • 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.

FreeConference.com

  • BEST ROI ever! It's all free and has let me access people globally. Thanks!
