GoToWebinar

For professional training, I would recommend it. I'm not really certain what other scenarios this is best-suited for, as it's not very handy or practical for anything in a more casual or entertainment-based setting. So for the purposes of professional development (which again is the field I am utilizing it), I'm not really sure what else out there is better works better than GoToWebinar/GoToMeeting.

Microsoft Teams

Can have group chats on topics that only concern a few employees. We have a Technology group where we add and brainstorm new applications and software that might be appropriate for our company. It's a good way to organize our ideas and thoughts without having to send out mass email chains and we can discuss the ideas at our next meeting. Microsoft Teams also lets us efficiently communicate with remote workers since email can lag. This allows almost real-time conversations and collaborations for our employees.

Pros

GoToWebinar

  • Good quality of audio and video during webinars. GoToWebinar uses multiple connections at the same time, which I assume is the reason for this high bandwidth. Rarely any complaints about the quality of the connection, few dropped attendees.
  • Quality of the recordings is good, and I like the fact that the original recording is on my local hard drive.
  • I've had to call support on several occasions, and I appreciate the fact that it's available 24/7.
  • The ability to have multiple organizers and presenters is well done and easy to use.
  • Letting the attendees download handouts during the session is a nice extra touch.

Microsoft Teams

  • Teams is particularly good at keeping conversation history in sync across multiple devices. Skype for business, which is Microsoft's other chat client, is particularly bad when it comes to this aspect.
  • The sidebar of the application window makes it easy to switch between all aspects of the application in one click. Easy switching between chat, notifications, and meetings.
  • Integrated hierarchy chart within each chat window easily allows you to see where an unfamiliar person you may be chatting with sits in terms of management level in the organization.

Cons

GoToWebinar

  • Private pop-up notifications when questions are received by attendees. I sometimes miss new questions if I'm viewing the attendee list
  • Allow us to schedule a similarly themed webinar for months at a time, without all having to be listed on one landing page
  • Enable panelists to answer questions, start polls, etc. - give panelists more flexibility

Microsoft Teams

  • Lack of rollout plans from MS that businesses can use to improve user adoption.
  • Slack still has more connectors.
  • Meetings could more intuitive and most of the screen is just pictures of people.
  • The desktop application is very large and absorbs a lot of system resources.
  • Multiple users cannot share screens at once, one at a time only.
  • Can't choose where to put files from conversations, they automatically are put in a Teams SharePoint.

Our largest issue with GoTo have been the limitations on recording and using recordings to host a webinar, and the biggest of those is the ability to record. We have had most of our webinars recorded successfully, but when it failed to save, it failed in a big way. Their customer service team was there to help, but they were unable to truly fix the problem.There are, of course, other providers, but as we are still seeing where hosted webinars fit in our marketing strategy, cost is an important factor. Since our company already uses GoToMeeting, it makes more sense for us to stay with the entire suite of products, especially while we are testing the strategy as a whole.

GoToWebinar is a little bit difficult to learn how to use. I believe it was designed by engineers and not by an end-user experience expert. I would recommend having a techy person on your team handle the set-up and all the integrations you need for GoToWebinar. There are plenty of helpful video tutorials on YouTube. Still, if you're the type of person that finds it difficult connecting multiple pieces of software to work together in automation, then it may be best to outsource or delegate that task.

It has a lot of great features and we are working to roll it out to our whole organization. It sometimes feels a little under-developed or maybe under used. There are some things I wish it did better - like integrating the group calendar rather than my own calendar and letting us have instant chat vs persistent.

Getting support for any MS Product kind of feels like pulling teeth. I have looked for support on the slowness of Teams to try and resolve it, but there is nothing really out there even from the MS reps other than deleting the hidden appsdata folder for Teams or uninstall/reinstall the software or just use the web-based Teams app.

Alternatives Considered

GoToWebinar

I had tried one or two alternatives to GoToWebinar before we went with them and we choose GoToWebinar because it was very easy to use, had a lot of automated actions to increase attendance, it was easy both for us and the users, and in general, it did everything we needed in a webinar.

Microsoft Teams

Personally, I have used a number of applications similar to Teams for a variety of functions. However, with regard to my current organizational use, I would say my experience with Teams provides a much more well-rounded user experience than Skype for Business. Teams performs the functions of Skype and also integrates many other features integral to applications like Slack, Webex Teams, and Yammer. Teams also has the added benefit of being connected within the Microsoft network of apps. Users can leverage the powerful cloud computing of O365 in order to access other materials stored on the shared platform. This is a huge benefit of staying within the same ecosystem.

Return on Investment

GoToWebinar

  • If you're selling high ticket items on a webinar, GoToWebinar is a great platform to use.
  • As you increase the number of attendees, so does your monthly price. Essentially you're paying $1 per person on the lowest plan per month.
  • I think that the pricing plans are outdated since the number of attendees does not cost more to the software provider.

Microsoft Teams

  • We were already paying for Office 365 but now we got a great collaboration tool to go along with it.
  • We are able to stay connected with employees across the United States and no longer have to fly people back to headquarters for meetings and conferences, saving on transportation and lodging costs.
