Whereby

Whereby is great for small teams of a dozen or fewer employees, especially remote teams. In a larger corporate environment, it's probably less useful. However, even for enterprise users, it might be very helpful for departments where employees are spread out over multiple locations or that utilize a lot of freelancers or remote workers.

Pros

Onstream Meetings

  • Easy to use
  • Easy to setup
  • Friendly UI
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Whereby

  • Easy to use: The app is very, very easy to use. Literally just create a chat room (input a name) and access it to chat.
  • Call/video quality: I've experienced better call quality on appear.in than in almost all other chat and video conferencing services out there.

Cons

Onstream Meetings

  • Integration with existing services
  • With company moving toward VoIP solution this becomes obsolete as we get the same service already included in the price of VoIP and we also do get this ability for free through Office 365 (online version, no dial-in)
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • 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.

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.

Very easy to use, technical and non-technical colleagues have used it with no instructions needed. That says all about the app and services.

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

Onstream Meetings

I have selected because at the time Skype for Business was horrible and we did not have 3CX at the time. We have acquired 3CX which is great and Skype for Business improved tremendously.

You're able to create unique links for people to join and use words and phrases in the link for the invite. I think that helps you with branding yourself as a company. On Google Hangouts we're not able to do something like this, which is why I appreciate Whereby and being able to connect in that way.

Return on Investment

Onstream Meetings

  • There is no need to purchase new service where you may already have existing service that includes the very same thing
  • It is great for small businesses that need this for presentations, support, etc.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Whereby

  • It has made it easy to connect with international clients as well as overseas friends.
  • It is a very professional looking setup and gives a good impression that you are businesslike and professional.
