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.

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

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.

RingCentral Meetings

  • Easy to start a meeting with video or audio
  • Support lots of people connecting in to the meeting
  • Recordings are easy to start
  • Transferring ownership to another participant
  • Easy to create recurring meetings

Cons

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
