Likelihood to Recommend

Highfive

HighFive is great if you fit their use case, which is basically a Mac or Windows user that wants to conference 2-3 locations together and have a lot of bandwidth. If you don't fit that exactly, HighFive is much less ideal. For example, if you have any Linux users, HighFive won't work at all for them. Also, if you want more capabilities beyond the basics, HighFive doesn't give you much.

Pros

  • Minimal initial config needed.
  • Audio and video quality is good (as long as your internet connection is good).
  • Desktop App is easy to use (with some caveats).

Cons

  • Sometimes get disconnected. I assume every platform like HighFive has these issues.
  • Could use some video quality enhancements. We might have an old camera.
  • The audio has severally improved since we received the Dolby Speaker/Mic disks.

Alternatives Considered

Highfive has thus far proved to be a better system for having video conferencing. Don't get me wrong, I like Zoom, but Highfive is cleaner and easier to use. Video recording is a game changer with Highfive and I'm so glad they added it! I use Highfive just about everyday, while I find myself using Zoom less and less.

Return on Investment

  • It has allowed us to save money on travel expenses for staff. We use video conferencing and still achieve that in-person feel.
