OpenText Hightail

Hightail is my go-to source when I need to send large files that would never fit as regular attachments. That being said, sometimes there are files that would perfectly fit as attachments but I want the security that Hightail provides when sending sensitive or private material. It's very comforting knowing that the content I'm sending is only being received and viewed by the intended parties. It's also comforting for my clients when it's THEIR content that I'm sending for review.

Vidyo

I've had HR professionals ask about using it for interviews. Gone are the days where we have to spend hundreds of dollars to fly candidates in or limit ourselves to phone interviews. Vidyo with it's high reliability has saved the organization thousands in travel costs with candidate recruitment. Business meetings that can often be troubling to get leaders and executive all in one room, Vidyo has functioned extraordinarily well in bringing in people from home, on the road, or the airport. Mobile capabilities are easy and fast.Quick daily calls and chats in the office are probably best suited for the free options out there as Vidyo is not a free service like others. Better yet general phone calls will suffice.

Pros

OpenText Hightail

  • It’s great for sending large-sized art files for print
  • It’s secure and files can be easily tracked
  • I like that it tells you how long it will take for the desired file to upload

Vidyo

  • I didn't have to sign up, I just need to log into the "room" I was supposed to, so unlike Skype or other instruments, I didn't need to spend time and create my own account.
  • To be honest, the largest online class I've attended had 10 people in it (besides the teacher), but it was a good quality connection.
  • I enjoyed the ability to ask questions or clarifications in the chat (without having to turn on my microphone, so that the teacher could answer the question when he/she finished the thought).

Cons

OpenText Hightail

  • I wish the screen would auto refresh faster, but that could be an issue with our bandwidth or IT pipeline and not the product.
  • I'd like a quicker way to get people up to speed than giving them a link to watch a multitude of videos and tutorials.
Richard Peterson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyo

  • The design and the branding give little to be desired
  • Customer support is below average
  • The API must be rewritten and add more functions that are commonly requested.
  • Project codes are not well maintained and hard to find.

Though not as widely used as Zoom or Google Hangouts, it is very competitive as far as features and usability

We have an internal tech team dedicated to setup and troubleshooting of Vidyo. This makes it very easy, because we have access to our own employees for help. Rarely have I or anyone I work with had to escalate something to Vidyo themselves, and we're lucky to have the internal administrators that run the show. Almost like Vidyo is ours and ours alone.

Alternatives Considered

OpenText Hightail

We looked at Dropbox because it's very well known in the industry and widely used. We didn't use it for a couple of reasons. First, our server security presented too many challenges and our IT director nixed the idea. Secondly, a lot of people used DropBox for personal use and we thought it could be confusing to have to navigate between the two choices. Hightail offers a single sign-in that can be shared amongst users so there is never a conflict between personal and professional use.

Vidyo

We selected Vidyo for its ability to integrate with other software used in the company and the ability to have multiple users without an additional investment. We could pair it with the conference hardware we already had installed at our conference rooms plus every user could have it on their desktop as well. Vidyo's quality for video and voice is better.

Return on Investment

OpenText Hightail

  • Team members can view and give feedback on videos, which is very useful.
  • The storage really can't be overstated. It's great.
  • It's generally pretty affordable for how much you can host on their server.
Sarah Bandy | TrustRadius Reviewer

Vidyo

  • It did help us reach the objective of education - after a while, everyone had a chance to connect and the quality of video/audio once you're in is great. It's just getting there that isn't up to par (but hopefully would be changed in next versions).
