Skype for Business does the job it is designed for adequately and admirably. Our organization uses it to ensure all staff are able to contact each other via their work phone numbers, no matter whether they are working in the office, at home, or somewhere else entirely. To this end, it is very effective.

I would definitely like to say that for a team lead who sends pie charts, surveys and questions to the teams, this software would be his best choice as the analytics of this all data by Zoho Meeting is one of the best in the market.The only downside of Zoho Meeting is its webinar pricing which could be a bit tough to pay for NGO's or less earning companies.

Zoho Meeting

Cons

Skype for Business (formerly Lync), now part of Microsoft Teams

  • Probably the biggest area is the video element as it has historically struggled in this area.
  • The need to be forced to federate with another organisation by providing yours and enabling the other organisation settings is a bit tedious but once done, allows for simple collaboration between third-parties.
  • Functionality wise, as it's an older product and being superseded by MS Teams, it feels as if it's run its course but was very good for what it does/did at the time.

Zoho Meeting

  • Free version is not that useful, so need to use paid version only.
  • Customer support isn't available by phone, need to use docs or guides to understand the application
  • Limit on number of people attending session. This is something I face issues with lot of online meet tools.

The software is simple to install and configure. It is rather simple to explain for correct use. It is possible to profile users for the different functions offered. It is integrated quite completely with Outlook and with Active Directory security. It performs all communication functions well with one or more interlocutors and the possibility of granting control of your computer is convenient.

Skype for Business is fairly user-friendly and has a good UI. It has strong audio and video conference call capabilities. It's easy to conduct meetings with various stakeholders across different locations and timezones. The chat and share a file or share my screen functions work seamlessly. If your company uses Office 365, then I would highly recommend it.

I have only had to reach out to the Support team at Skype for Business once with an issue, and I was pleasantly surprised and encouraged by the quickness and thoroughness of their response. The wait time was short and my question was dealt with politely and clearly, so I would say the support team has it together.

It has by far the best support ever. Support team is available 24/7. They are polite and walk you through any feature. Their team is well versed and do not bore you with auto-generated templates. Although waiting for an executive to connect is bit much during peak hours. Overall I'm very [satisfied] with their support team.

Skpe for business is utilized company wide in regards to my company. Everyone not only uses it, but uses it often. It is an effective way of communicating. It also integrates very nicely with outlook and all conversation history is pushed to a folder within the outlook system. We also have it so that if someone misses a message, they are sent an email reminder saying that there is a message that went unread.

Alternatives Considered

Skype for Business (formerly Lync), now part of Microsoft Teams

We have switched to Teams, and it does offer a lot more so I think that it was the right choice, but Skype [for Business (formerly Lync)] was a very functional tool. The main issues were the bandwidth issues. The work computers aren't particularly high in RAM or processing speed so it would lag quite a bit. It worked well and was fairly intuitive otherwise.
Heather Hicks | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho Meeting

I think Zoho Meeting is lacking so many features when compared with other products. Most importantly they have to work on audio video quality and increasing room capacity. If we compare this with Zoom, they offers meetings up to 100 participants with their free package including unlimited one-on-one meetings. So, if Zoho Meeting wants to compete with others, they have to come up with a better solution.

Return on Investment

Skype for Business (formerly Lync), now part of Microsoft Teams

  • We almost lost our biggest client because of the poor performance early on in our implementation...the online meetings were poor quality for audio and bandwidth refreshing
  • Many of the employees in our company disliked the quality so much, they started to sign up for free Cisco WebEx accounts to use instead
  • The majority of employees in our company lost trust in our CTO because of his decision to switch from Cisco WebEx to Skype for Business
Randy Palmer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho Meeting

  • It has fulfilled all the work from home needs in COVID these days.
  • It improves productivity and helps to get tasks easily done with the proper notification system.
  • People in the company easily learned to install and operate this application in just a few days and it is very simply designed.
