    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.

    Vidyo

    I've had HR professionals ask about using it for interviews. Gone are the days where we have to spend hundreds of dollars to fly candidates in or limit ourselves to phone interviews. Vidyo with it's high reliability has saved the organization thousands in travel costs with candidate recruitment. Business meetings that can often be troubling to get leaders and executive all in one room, Vidyo has functioned extraordinarily well in bringing in people from home, on the road, or the airport. Mobile capabilities are easy and fast. Quick daily calls and chats in the office are probably best suited for the free options out there as Vidyo is not a free service like others. Better yet general phone calls will suffice.

    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.

    Vidyo

    • I didn't have to sign up, I just need to log into the "room" I was supposed to, so unlike Skype or other instruments, I didn't need to spend time and create my own account.
    • To be honest, the largest online class I've attended had 10 people in it (besides the teacher), but it was a good quality connection.
    • I enjoyed the ability to ask questions or clarifications in the chat (without having to turn on my microphone, so that the teacher could answer the question when he/she finished the thought).

    Cons

    iotum

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

    Vidyo

    • The design and the branding give little to be desired
    • Customer support is below average
    • The API must be rewritten and add more functions that are commonly requested.
    • Project codes are not well maintained and hard to find.

        Vidyo

        We have an internal tech team dedicated to setup and troubleshooting of Vidyo. This makes it very easy, because we have access to our own employees for help. Rarely have I or anyone I work with had to escalate something to Vidyo themselves, and we're lucky to have the internal administrators that run the show. Almost like Vidyo is ours and ours alone.

        Alternatives Considered

        iotum

        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.

        Vidyo

        Vidyo is better than the competitors for large meetings with many participants, due to ease of use for participants - everything in-browser has a very low threshold. Due to its lack of breakout rooms, it is less suited for smaller (or internal) meetings, where you can expect everyone to install a client.

        Return on Investment

        iotum

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

        Vidyo

        • It did help us reach the objective of education - after a while, everyone had a chance to connect and the quality of video/audio once you're in is great. It's just getting there that isn't up to par (but hopefully would be changed in next versions).
