RingCentral Meetings

It's great for internal meetings and for when you need screen sharing and video visibility. It's not well suited for basic phone conferences, and can be tricky to use with participants outside your company.

Pros

  • Very reliable. It never breaks on any of our devices
  • Call quality is always fine
  • Installation is quick for guests joining the meeting
  • It connects to Outlook and Google calendar so it's easy to add invites from within the applications.

Cons

  • It's just like many other zoom-based meeting tools. They are all based on this single technology that is just rebranded
  • Other zoom-based meeting tools might be cheaper or offer other things you might want
  • Nothing negative about this meeting tool. I really do like it and there is no reason to not use it since we get it free with our RingCentral phone accounts.

We are grandfathered into an unlimited toll-free minutes plan with RingCentral, so as long as we have them as a VoIP provider, we get Meetings free. If they ever start to charge us for using meetings as well, we'll drop that part in a second and switch to Skype for Business, which we currently have as well part of our Office 365 package.

Usability

Based on 1 answer
Probably could be a little easier and friendlier to use but it's definitely not needlessly complex. It could just use a little more investment in refining the UI instead of adding fancy features.

Alternatives Considered

As a consulting company, we often have to adapt to our customers' needs in communication - which can mean using whatever system they're already on. Most of the time, they come around to preferring RingCentral Meetings over whatever they're using, and we've found it's a great value for us since it's already included in our RingCentral subscription, and runs on Mac, Windows, and Mobile devices. Despite the big drawback of needing to install the app locally and not having an in-browser solution for guests, it's lightweight, intuitive interface makes it an easy conferencing tool to adopt.

Return on Investment

  • Since it came free with our phone service, it has saved us from purchasing anything else, so the ROI was certainly there
  • It was easy to deploy with a group policy rule to all computers, so it took minimal IT time
  • Since we already had VoIP accounts for all of our users, there was no other account to create.
