OpenVoice

OpenVoice works really well for large 80+ conference calls. We've hosted over 30+ calls on the system and never once had any service outages. It is a stable platform that works reliably!

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

OpenVoice

  • Simple dial-in instructions.
  • Multiple number choices to call in with.
  • Recording!
  • Web portal to control the call.
  • Simple billing.

  • 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

OpenVoice

  • No built-in video options.

  • 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.

It's been years since I've had to call into OpenVoice for any technical support issues. The main issues I had were more on the billing side, but those billing issues were cleared up quickly.

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

OpenVoice

OpenVoice provides a quick, simple way to gather users together for conference calls. We've tried using WebEx's audio bridge, but many times users find themselves confused by the prompts. We've tried numerous times to educate users on WebEx, but it always seems to fall back on OpenVoice.

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

  • The built-in recording feature allows us to post recordings of conference calls with ease.
  • Attendance to OpenVoice calls have been positive.
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.
