The only thing I "forget" about sometimes is that I now only have a corded handset and can't pick up the phone and take it with me on the property. This is an equipment constraint, not an application problem. I just need to upgrade my phone! I can't really think of anything else.

If you have to video conference anyone, and I do mean ANYone, Zoom is the perfect platform for that. Part of my job is helping our company adopt new technologies that we purchase, and Zoom is our preferred method. Maybe for an intimate setting or a performance review, I wouldn't use Zoom? But for almost any other scenario, I would recommend using Zoom.

Pros

Ooma Office

  • Technical Support is spot on! Fully knowledgable, VERY helpful, and easy to get in touch with. What more can one ask?
  • AMAZING value for money! When I tell you that get way more than you pay for, multiply that 3. The regular package is more than enough for a smaller business, but the great thing is that Ooma Office also offers a PRO package. Ooma Office is a well-thought-out, useful and a forward-moving company as a whole.
  • Easy to use. Super simple to install and set up.

Zoom

  • It just works. Biggest complaint with our previous solution is that it took 10 minutes to connect to a meeting. Now, our users connect instantaneously.
  • Dashboard is fantasitic. Can access real time information to troubleshoot calls.
  • Admin ports offers quite a bit of information. Like that it's a one stop shop to access everything I need to administer the site, users, run reports and access the dashboard.
  • Tickets get resolved quickly.
  • Feature requests are realized quickly.

Cons

Ooma Office

  • If you already have your own VOIP phones you will not be able to use them with Ooma. Even though provisioning VOIP phones is not that difficult Ooma's tech support DOES NOT provide support or information to provision phones. They are the only VOIP business provider that I know of that doesn't.
  • The Efax usage is not as user friendly as most other Efax services. Instead of using email to send a fax (like may other services do) you must log in online to your Ooma portal to use the Efax. Very cumbersome if your industry uses fax a great deal.
  • Ooma considers 20 or less users to be a Small Business and to use the Ooma Office which limits your use of their inexpensive service. Any company with more users must use their Enterprise service at a higher per user cost.

  • When I used Zoom while conducting some administration tasks, it wasn't quick to switch back and forth between the one providing support and the user for the copy/paste function. When I spoke to the one providing support they said it happened all the time.

We're sticking with Zoom for the foreseeable future--given its compelling feature set, ease of use, and advanced technology, there's just no other competition to be excited about. Plus it's a Gartner-recognized industry leader, so it's a rather easy choice.

Everything is easy to understand and use, new users need no training. On the flipside there are minor annoyances such as calendar export being cumbersome (need re-auth every time) and also not having recordings shared within a team or forcing people to name them.

There have been less than a handful of outages during our two years with Zoom, and whenever there was one, an email informing us of the outage went out immediately, and they had the issue resolved shortly thereafter.

Zoom has among the best performance of any video conference platform, as I've mentioned several times. Besides that, their Chat platform works great, and their back end always runs smooth. It's unfortunate that reporting can now only be done by one month at a time, but nonetheless, it only takes a second to run any kind of Zoom report, whether it's an attendee report, Poll results, a user report, a list of meetings from the past month, etc.

Support has told me how to set the system to do certain things, and more than once we’d already set the system as instructed and still it wasn’t functioning as desired - support seemed a bit stumped when this happened.

As I've written before, Zoom makes us feel like we matter and that we're a client rather than a customer. They want us to succeed and they put in the time to make sure that we do. I feel like they're more of a business partner rather than simply a vendor or supplier. They spent a lot of time onboarding with us, giving us demos, helping us get set up, and then giving us follow-up to be sure it's going well.

If you receive any pushback from higher ups, point to any of the various positive reviews like this one. Or show Zoom's excellent Gartner report, or articles describing Zoom's partnership with Sequoia capital. It's not difficult to show how Zoom is a trustworthy industry leader with best-in-class technology.

Alternatives Considered

Ooma Office

We used them before we switched, and they're just a little pricier. For exactly the same service, it was 50% cheaper with Ooma Office, and we were looking for savings, so it was the ideal switch. We're very happy with the decision to switch providers as Vonage didn't have any products that were substantially better.

Zoom is more user-friendly than any of these other options. The UI is better looking and easier to understand. Zoom also integrates well with our chosen hardware including Avocor touch screens, Huddly cameras and Shure microphones.

Because the Basic licenses are completely free, and because it's very easy to configure and install Zoom, and because anyone can join Zoom from a link without needing an account, scaling is a Breeze. There are absolutely no roadblocks. My company keeps adding more Zoom Pro license every week since it's so in demand. We were able to convert users from several different platforms onto Zoom with no trouble at all.

Return on Investment

Ooma Office

  • Nearly 60% reduction in telephone costs; results were almost immediate
  • 10-15% reduction in time spent on the phone or on calls that may not be revenue impacting.
  • I can literally take my office with me anywhere! I can use my Ooma equipment anywhere I have access to HSI!
Wendy White | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoom

  • Allowed for us to start meetings at a faster speed especially with its Slack integration.
  • Integration with HubSpot has made it easy to also set up Zoom webinars and sync any contact data within the CRM.
  • Need battery chargers for laptops in a meeting lasting over an hour - drains them fairly quickly.
