GlobalMeet Webcast

I think it works particularly well when the teams are in multiple locations and video conferencing is a must. Using it for sales presentations seems great. While using iMeet would still work extremely well for smaller meetings, it's overkill and more expensive than free options like Join.me or Skype. If I'm having a one-on-one meeting with only a couple of close colleagues I think one of the free options would suit our needs just fine.

  • It works on any device... computer, smartphone, or tablet.
  • Excellent and reliable video and audio quality.

Cons

  • I wish there was some way to regulate the bandwidth better in order to allow larger video. It's really difficult though because the bandwidth constraints are on our end and that would be a tough fix to maintain quality, but reduce bandwidth.

Usability

GlobalMeet Webcast9.1
Based on 1 answer
According to our IT department, we experienced some video quality issues during our Q4 webcast last year. Even though that wasn't substantiated with employee comments on the feedback survey, PGi was still willing to have a very long test call where we tried to replicate the issue (we couldn't.) They're always on board for testing every location we use and I have to do very little technically to be successful.

Alternatives Considered

We originally used ON24 as provided by PGi. Their interface wasn't as flexible and when we needed to increase the size of the very tiny video, it would have been too difficult. At the beginning of the year, I examined the option of ON24 through the company directly and their pricing was almost comically higher than what we get with PGi and that was NOT including the live human support during the webcast. At this point, I can't see us changing because of the low cost, high value model we have with iMeet.

Return on Investment

  • Positive impact - I did not expect the technology to assist with marketing tools, which was a great asset!
