Intermedia AnyMeeting

I'm often working on different projects with a variety of clients and having used most communication platforms out there, I must say AnyMeeting is the quickest-loading and as far as quality goes, it works out great. To me, it's only less appropriate when our clients prefer to use another platform, but personally I prefer it over the competition.

Skype

Skype is well suited for small offices, interaction with home-based employees, multi-country audio meetings (assuming there is a universal language), one-on-one coaching, or performance appraisal. Low customer assistance center using foreign numbers.It is less appropriate for video conferences where a leader allows many participants to speak, share documents, and interact using their cameras (PC or cell phones) all at the same time. Zoom has taken the lead in this area. It is sad to see that PlaceWare, a pioneer at one time, has lagged behind after Microsoft bought it.

Pros

Intermedia AnyMeeting

  • Ease of use -- setting up a meeting is quick and simple, and so is presenting. PowerPoints can be pre-loaded into the system and displayed/controlled without screen-sharing. Questions and Answers are easily managed in a platform that allows you to view them in a single pane and dismiss them as you answer.
  • Customization of registration forms -- gather the information you need from your registrants.
  • Live Chat is always quick and helpful.
  • The webinar system is browser-based, even for presenters, so you can present from anywhere without needing to download an application.
  • Built-in time zone converter on our webinar registration pages is useful, as we invite companies worldwide to our webinars.

Skype

  • Skype for Business has grown quite a lot since its days as Microsoft Lync and is now quite nicely integrated with almost facets of Windows and Office (and other Microsoft stuff).
  • It's nice for inter-office communication when everyone's using Active Directory and has Skype for Business running.
  • Skype for Business works well even on non-Windows and/or non-university machines (e.g. personal computers).

Cons

Intermedia AnyMeeting

  • It could be clearer, from an admin standpoint, which meeting options allow you to record, prior to setting up the meeting. I don't use it frequently enough to remember which type of meeting will allow me to record, and it takes an extra minute to figure this out when I schedule meetings ahead of time.

Skype

  • I find the new interface of Skype very unintuitive compared to previous versions. Every time I am talking with someone I end up clicking on icons until I find the chat area or the screen sharing option.
  • In newer versions of Skype, I've had many issues with audio feedback being slow or interrupted, despite the fact that I have high speed internet. This is extremely annoying if you are trying to discuss difficult and complex topics.
  • Sometimes the video option randomly doesn't work, and I also find it difficult to add people to your Skype phonebook if you don't know their exact Skype username.

I think so far there is no reason not to renew the license. We have been using Skype for a long time and are very satisfied with it.

Anytime I had any problems with Skype, the Customer team was there to help me. However, their help section is so advanced that I found many answers there without being forced to ask them in any other communication channels. It works really well and it is a very reliable tool for companies.

Alternatives Considered

Intermedia AnyMeeting

AnyMeeting's free version beats Zoom's free version because of the time limit Zoom imposes on free meetings. However, when going for a paid version, Zoom outperforms AnyMeeting's paid version. The video quality seems to be higher in Zoom. There is also more features available in Zoom as a whole, and I've never had someone not be able to join the Zoom meeting.

Skype

Slack, WebEx, and Google Hangouts. Skype is not as fancy as Slack or WebEx, and not as international or widespread as Google Hangouts, however. As I've stated, it really shines in our closed environment and isolated domain. The truth is we have been using a Windows-only domain on our isolated environment and Skype fits very nicely into that. The simple integration into our current setup was easy and fast.

Return on Investment

Intermedia AnyMeeting

  • AnyMeeting made it easier and faster for me and my team to set up online meetings and conference calls, thus saving quite a bit of time.
  • Due to some over runs of meetings, I have to have a back up service just in case.

Skype

  • My department does not use Skype in a way that would be seen as generating a return on investment but for what the product does it is a good value.
  • It really closes the distance gap in working with offices that are far away. Conference calls can be so soul crushing, this is a much better option.
  • The only negative impact is that it is not the only video conferencing tool that I use. Given that it is not as strong of a multi user platform I can't say that it may cover every need that every office would have.
