Pexip
This video meeting software is good for all those who want to collaborate with their teams on some serious business discussions and it provides the best quality of video without any interruption. Its features work perfectly well from recording to scheduling. But it is not favorable when someone is facing a weak internet connection.

If you have a business page on Facebook, having Twilio’s chat not feature is a must! No more missed chat messages or clients getting upset because of a delay in replies. Twilio has helped on several occasions answer simple questions, so I didn't even have to answer the chat message manually. It also enables you to recognize when spammy messages are trying to get through.

Cons
Pexip
  • It's hard to find anY cons. But perhaps, the "getting started" manual which is available, and they do send it when you first start, which is needless and far too big whould be replaced by a 15 minute videocall. That's so much better a way to go as no one has time to read so much anymore.

  • Setting up response sequences should be more intuitive like an email sequence software or a chatbot service where you can send users through flows based on actions.
  • Less code setup or having a graphical user interface to set it up would be nice then to be able to just export the code of what we need and send it over to developers.
  • Easier multi-media sending for images, videos, or files needed.

Twilio has well documented APIs and examples. There are several tutorials, videos and Q&As regarding their services. So, usability is very good. I must say that advanced knowledge of telephony, API/Programming and error-handling is essential to make good use of Twilio. It's not just plug-and-play unless you are integrated with a system that has all of the programming built for it.

Support Rating
Pexip
Pexip Infinity's customer support function deserves a full score for their work. The ironic thing is, I have never had to deal with them at all, which means that their entire development team is actually a support team because they have crafted a product that the client never has to talk to them about; it is just that good and works seamlessly. There are very few products out there that works as easily as Pexip Infinity.

I have not had to communicate with Twilio support in the last 3 years but my past experience with them has been very positive. They replied to my previous requests promptly and kept me well informed to resolve my inquiries. With their documentation that's available, I hardly imagine why anyone would need to contact support since it's all there in a concise and easy to understand format. It would probably take you longer to type out a support ticket than to just open their doc websites.

Gotomeeting and WebEx are overpriced and quite old technologies in a market ripe for real change.

I receive regular unsolicited communications from Twilio competitors but I do not have the time to review them, given there is no reason for me to switch. Twilio works great and its pricing is acceptable for our situation. Investigating point solutions for text only or voice only would complicate our infrastructure and vendor management and would require some expensive system changes.

Return on Investment
Pexip
  • There is better collaboration in our team.
  • We don’t need to be present in the office to discuss something important as we can collaborate from almost anywhere.
  • We cannot add a large number of participants as it gets disturbed and the system gets clunky.

Twilio
  • Twilio WebRTC allowed us to move a bulk of our communication to the cloud, giving us a lot of visibility on how we were communicating with our customers.
  • It also gave us analytics on how much time users spent on communicating with each other over calls and helped us build features around it.
  • Twilio became the center of all communication on our platform. From chat messages to phone calls, it powered everything.
