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.

GoTo meeting is great for quick and painless virtual meetings. I have used it many times to quickly organize projects and staff into a simple meeting. Generally speaking, we have been able to share screens, cameras, and collaborate on important projects. Where it starts to fall short is in the presentation or training area. It is difficult for students to interact with things like reactions, taking control of a screen, or letting the presenter know they have a question.

Pros
iotum
  • 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.

  • Not being able to use 800 number (toll free).

  • Audio - many of my customers cannot use PC audio because their microphones are not recognized
  • When I send out a meeting invite from Outlook, the message includes a default link to Teams, so there is much confusion at the time the meeting starts. Most users end up in Teams while I wait in GTM
  • The screen share options are quite confusing for my customers. They never know what to share or how to share

While we have found GoTo Meeting to be very useful and a part of our normal way of doing business, there are alternatives that are more cost-effective. For example, Microsoft Teams is available as part of our M365 subscription. This will require us to complete a cost analysis to determine which product makes more sense for us to move forward with.

The simplicity of GoToMeetings desktop, mobile, and web-based applications make it a very robust and user-friendly meeting solution. At times, it may be more complex than needed, but it is nice to have so many features that can be used if needed. Once installed, it is very easy to use and navigate.

When we have issues, they seem to respond quickly and do everything they can to help us. They have even tried to find other ways we could get more use out of their product, or improve the way we are currently using it. Overall, their support has been fairly good for us.

Alternatives Considered

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.

We use Zoom for the entire organization because it’s far more cost effective. But, my role as training manager requires my use of GTM to allow all the required features that make my training sessions the most productive. I would always prefer to use GTM over Zoom because the platform is so easy and user friendly yet amazingly powerful. Zoom has the features for the most part, but they aren’t as intuitive to use in my experience
