For international meetings Huawei Cloud Meeting is a great platform. It really depends on the software already used by the company as to whether it would be a good fit or not. Some companies are hard set on Teams, Zoom, etc.

Signal is great for high-security applications where privacy is a concern, perhaps because of the sensitive nature of the materials being communicated. For instance, if you are sending sensitive information about a film that hasn't been released yet, and you want to make sure that paparazzi and fans don't get access to spoiler information, Signal is a great way to communicate.

I've never contacted support but I see that they are on the ball for bug fixes, highly communicative in release notes, and continually releasing updates to Signal that address common user complaints. Given how responsive the development team is, and how they are continually improving Signal, I think their support is top notch.

Alternatives Considered

Huawei Cloud Meeting has some unique features, but it really comes down to the preference of who you are meeting with. In this case Huawei Cloud Meeting would prefer their own platform and it very much held its own to zoom, teams, etc.

Signal is far and away better and more feature-rich. Skype is no longer the app it used to be before Microsoft acquired it, and WhatsApp, while trying to be much like Signal with claims, has too many features that lead to a sense of insecurity as it's too widely used and used for too many things.
