LiveWebinar

  • If you need your own branded meetings, webinar solution.
  • If you need many features to tweak the system/
  • If you need up to 1000 participants in a meeting, this would be a good platform to have.
  • Quickly start a meeting with no hassle, no installations, just share a link via email or chat.
  • Customers can join on mobile devices.
  • Less appropriate if you have participants who need to call in and you don't have that particular plan.

RingCentral Meetings

RingCentral meetings is best suited to small businesses with multiple remote employees who need to teleconference as well as engineers wishing to provide technical support to their customers. RingCentral Meetings is less suited to small businesses consisting of a single employee, in which case the meetings application is only beneficial for conferencing with customers which may or may not happen frequently

Pros

LiveWebinar

  • LiveWebinar makes it easy to share video clips and offer explanations simultaneously.
  • LiveWebinar allows the host to turn off the chat function so individuals are not distracted during the teaching.
  • LiveWebinar offers the ability to switch between teacher visuals, videos and power points, just as if doing 'in person.'

Cons

LiveWebinar

  • Call-in feature for meeting participants should be a standard feature. With my plan, I cannot access this.
  • Account assistant login is cumbersome.
  • Paintbrushes for whiteboard/presentation annotations could be improved and should include stamps (checkmarks, red big arrow, etc.).
Dani S | TrustRadius Reviewer

RingCentral Meetings

  • It's just like many other zoom-based meeting tools. They are all based on this single technology that is just rebranded
  • Other zoom-based meeting tools might be cheaper or offer other things you might want
  • Nothing negative about this meeting tool. I really do like it and there is no reason to not use it since we get it free with our RingCentral phone accounts.

We are grandfathered into an unlimited toll-free minutes plan with RingCentral, so as long as we have them as a VoIP provider, we get Meetings free. If they ever start to charge us for using meetings as well, we'll drop that part in a second and switch to Skype for Business, which we currently have as well part of our Office 365 package.

Probably could be a little easier and friendlier to use but it's definitely not needlessly complex. It could just use a little more investment in refining the UI instead of adding fancy features.

Alternatives Considered

LiveWebinar

LiveWebinar doesn't require participants to download software and can easily run from computers or mobile devices. Webex and Adobe Connect also have challenges with staying connected, these are probably equal and may be somewhat related to the internet service more than the program, or the browser being used. LiveWebinar was easy to set up and start using.

RingCentral Meetings

Ring Central is a great tool for larger teams. It's built on Zoom's platform, which is simply a very well made tool. People complain a lot about glitches and issues with Google Hangouts, but with Zoom and Ring Central, all we ever hear (and experience) are good things. So far it works great.

Return on Investment

LiveWebinar

  • With the lifetime plan, we paid off this investment in 3-5 months vs. having a subscription-based solution. After that, the application is "free."
  • We spent quite some time researching and testing all the features before we could make a decision.
  • Positive effect on client relationships, as we don't have any additional cost to arrange another meeting.

RingCentral Meetings

  • It has had a positive impact. We replaced an archaic solution with a more modern, streamlined version or product. Like anything else, it has its downfalls and isn't perfect, but overall it's been a good product and has outshined its predecessors like Zoom and Skype.
  • It also has an integrated office phone feature which has been great as our phones are essentially our laptops. It cut down on those costs and in general freed up space on our desks since we didn't have to have them anymore and everything is on our computer now.
