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.

Zoom Phone is great for remote work. It's pretty user friendly. You can easily transfer calls to those who have Zoom extensions programmed into the address book. Obviously, this would apply to most tech nowadays, but call quality can suffer during bad weather.
Read full review Pros 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. Read full review Transcribes voicemails. Great for those verbose folks that leave long voicemails. Loud and clear volume quality! Great in a busy office with lots of people talking. Easy to keep track of who has called me. Has Caller ID which is helpful. Read full review Cons Not being able to use 800 number (toll free). The website interface could be spruced up a bit. Read full review Voicemail handling for queues and groups can't have their own shared voicemail box. They recently starting limiting how many greetings you can have per user, so you have to do some annoying workarounds by setting up additional users to accomplish it when you have a number of ACD. Does not yet support texting. I wish they had built in text to speech to quickly build new greetings or phone tree options when needed. You can't just assign a phone number to a call queue or group. You have to use a specific user. Fortunately, the cost is reasonable per user so its not a big problem, but annoying none-the-less. The Salesforce integration could be better, I hope they improve it. For example, voicemails and call logs don't show up in the native lightning case feed, but as tasks. When callers call, I wish it would pop up how they called and what tree they went through. So we could see what number they called into and perhaps what menu options they used. I'd love to be able to ask them questions to gather info for reps answering phones when appropriate.

Zoom Phone has a very sleek design which makes it very easy to operate and use both in the setting up of and interacting in a meeting space. That being said, certain features can seem a bit crowded while trying to screen share or display video which somewhat defeats the purpose of the application as compared to a standard conference call.

Support have been great during the time for implementing Zoom Phones to our team of 50 people. There were times where they kept supporting us through links but more and more we had actual people getting back to us via emails so we are very happy overall. The product is so great, too.

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.

The big draw for us to Zoom Phone is that they shook up the market. They entered the phone market by taking their overwhelming success in video conferencing, and bringing that innovation and skill to designing a game changing phone system. There is really not much difference among the other systems, except maybe their interface. They're a dime a dozen. Zoom does things differently, focusing in on the needs of the end users, and delivers a solid system that is worry free for I.T. departments
Read full review Return on Investment BEST ROI ever! It's all free and has let me access people globally. Thanks! Read full review We're better able to work together as a team answering phones multiple people can be logged in to answer at the same time. The voicemail transcription feature helps with sharing messages to different departments. Overall, we're able to answer more calls and have fewer callers being sent to voicemail.
