Microsoft Teams

If you are organising yourself around MS Office applications it has become the standard way in many companies to work and collaborate. We are often invited by other companies for meetings and projects, and Microsoft Teams is widely adopted. There is a lot of opportunities to link and integrate with other systems, but (honestly) we don't apply those a lot at the moment.

Whereby

[Whereby] is great for small teams within an organization. It is simple to use and quick to join. It can't be your main communication tool as it lacks most of the core features. Screen sharing quality is great. It can't handle large meetings. If video quality is utmost priority then this tool isn't for you.

Pros

Microsoft Teams

  • Scheduling - it's easy to integrate your meetings in Outlook
  • Invitations - Since everyone in our organization is on Outlook, it's really easy to invite someone to a meeting and make sure it appears on their calendar
  • Chat room / file sharing - it's easy to add files and links to the chatroom
Hans Meyer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Whereby

  • Whereby does not require any download file?
  • We can easily join meeting with only two clicks.
  • [The] link is short and easy to share. Unlike other software where [the] link is 30+ words.
  • The emoji collection and response on the screen [are] very ideal.

Cons

Microsoft Teams

  • The app does not work well with apple products at all.
  • The desktop application does not compete with other remote working platforms.
  • The screen-share is the most inconvenient. While presenting you cannot share a single tab/window, you are forced to share your entire screen. There is a privacy concern.
  • While presenting on behalf of a colleague, you will have to stop the presentation, mute/unmute then return to the presentation which is disruptive and unprofessional especially when recording.
  • The members of the organisation assume guests have the capabilities they have, which guests do not. Microsoft Teams does not work as a social media platform and the guest feature should be abandoned entirely because it is most frustrating for guests.
  • Guests invited to Microsoft Teams meetings cannot view multiple video cams while using a browser with a VPN service.
  • The activity/meeting feedback window in the app itself is chaotic and can be better organised. I recommend data logs that can be pulled when needed.

Whereby

  • The paid version may have dial-in. But I have always used the free version. Dial-in is typically required for an "official" multi-purpose teleconference platform.
  • I did have some trouble with larger groups (5+) when it was Appear.in but almost always use it for small 1-on-1 or 3 person meetings.

Microsoft Teams has really shown how it can assist in this current environment but even without so, it is valuable as a tool to connect with individuals and collaborate on conference schedules.

We are using a larger tool suite that already includes video conferencing instead of our older approach of using different apps from different vendors.appear.in has a simple but great set of features but its pricing scheme is not as scalable as we really need in a 500+ employee company.

Usability

There is way too much clicking in circles and multi-step processes for tasks that should be simple, like moving documents from one place to another or navigating the document set. Things that should be drag and drop take 3 or more clicks to achieve, and you have to wait a significant amount of time for the page to load after each click. The software seems bloated and slow

Microsoft Teams has a good support and an easy system to find answers. There are also tutorials available for learning the basics of the program which is very helpful. Being able to use the program on computers, tablets and mobile devices is very helpful. The whole Outlook 360 package has a good support network which makes integrating new programs into the office easier

Never had to contact support, so we cannot give a rating for their overall support. When we noticed the audio was not always great quality, we simply educated our users to mute the mic and use the in-room conference phone which is connected via a dedicated VOIP link and had much better voice quality. The video performance varied by locations network speed and found it got much worse when the room size increased to over 4 connections.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams has a survey or research feature, which is a significant source of data collection in the company. Also, Microsoft Teams integrates with different programs, and this brings efficiency and perfection in its role. Finally, there is the search and filtering feature from Microsoft Teams, which ensures no loss of data or time spent when looking for them.

Whereby

I did not evaluate other applications against Whereby, because we had a very specific need, which was the partner that we would use the solution, only accepted to use Whereby, so, we accepted to use the solution. As it was for a specific period, there was no problem. And in the end, it proved to be a very stable, very fast solution, with no need for crazy plugins or anything. Basically, it was access[ed] and use.

Return on Investment

Microsoft Teams

  • A positive impact has been in having to save time for IT staff from not having to deploy other collaboration tools, since Teams is an all-in-one collaboration tool.
  • Another positive impact has been in the ability to set permissions for different user groups. This helps to keep things more secure overall.
  • One negative impact has been in the extra time it has taken to try and get users up to speed with using the platform. More formal training is required.

Whereby

  • In general, any sort of online collaborations saves a lot on your budget. The meetings are rather more on time and can be efficient and short.
  • Easy to drop-by and have a small talk with clients/teammates within COVID era.
  • The URL makes you look fancy instead of a random hash.
