Chose Zoho Meeting
I have used Skype for business as well and I think Skype is far better than Zoho Meeting. The problem with Skype is it requires very high bandwidth to use as compared to Zoho Meeting.
Chose Zoho Meeting
Zoom focuses on video webinars, meetings, chat options, integration, and high-definition video conferencing, whereas Microsoft Teams focuses on Microsoft integrations that include real-time video chat. Both Google Meet and Zoho Meeting offer various features, including HD video …

Microsoft
Skype is well suited for quick calls back and forth, in both video and audio, among team members who have it already installed and who know how to use it. It is less well-suited when trying to do a presentation for somebody who does NOT have it installed or who lacks internet speed.

Anyone who needs assistance with a work-related issue can take advantage of this service. Because of this, the entire company benefits from increased effectiveness, openness, and output in all areas. Sharing a computer's screen has been an enormous help. Stability issues increase when a major meeting occurs. Make sure you buy the paid version because you won't find a good free version.

Pros
Microsoft
  • The instant chat function is great. Very straightforward, easy to use, easy to learn, no technical issues.
  • Video calls are pretty easy also, user friendly and a mostly stable connection with no issues.
  • Voice calls are easy also, eliminates the need for an external landline or the need to use your cell phone. Clear connections, not really any dropped calls.

  • Embed meeting link feature- The feature is unique to Zoho Meeting and helps attach meeting link to website, thus anyone accessing [the] website can join the meeting with just one click of a button.
  • Surveys and questions are prepared pretty seamlessly in Zoho Meeting as compared to other video conferencing applications.
  • As mentioned earlier, webinar analytics i.e. the way all the questions and surveys data is presented in .csv file is very easy to understand and helps the team lead a lot in understanding and getting to know the team better.

Cons
Microsoft
  • This is really small, but I'd love to see the emoticons updated to emojis.
  • Make calling free like some other communications app providers.
  • Grant the ability to not show that you're online even when you are. Sometimes you want to make a call, but you don't want other people to see you're online and start messaging you.

Usability
Microsoft
Skype is not as good as Facetime in terms of ease to glance at it and figure out how it works. I think that's a result of Skype trying to be too many things at once. A lot of the menu and UI could be streamlined, and I would jettison some of the additional functions that have been tacked on over the years to simplify. That being said, while some options are slightly hard to find, they all work flawlessly once found.

Zoho Meeting is very easy to use and very effective collaborating tool. If I say about the usability, this application is highly usable because oaf it's cost effective nature, user friendly interface, empathetic customer services and amazing application features. Most importantly, it ensures data security for the company. Overall, the usability of the application is trustworthy.

Support Rating
Microsoft
I am not aware of the current support level for Skype for business, as I have never used even though I have the product. However, the support for Skype's personal paid users is not where it could be. Users who pay for Skype features do not have a clear path to reach out to support. So, rating 6, can be better as soon as I need to use Skype for business support and get a good experience. I will say that I will renew Skype for Business subscription, which is a significant inconsistency on my end. The explanation is that Skype for Business comes bundled with Office for Business, with no additional cost, so why not.

Zoho Meeting's support team was always good their response time. Many of their customers come to them with a complete lack of knowledge and I think they're well aware of that. they were friendly and knowledgeable so it was always a good experience contacting them. but I think it's better if they can open a hotline for their paying customers

Microsoft Teams provides basically the same services. Local number calling is not available (that I know of) but that only matters if you have any need to use it. Teams is a little more stable, especially with a lot of people on a call. Skype is easier to set up and to operate. Skype also has a larger install base.

Zoho Meeting is very affordable and it suits better for the small business like ours. In addition to these, it offers the same features Microsoft Teams does. It has better adaptability compared to teams both in desktop and mobile applications. Moreover, it ensures data security as they do not rely on 3rd party

Return on Investment
Microsoft
  • Overall Skype is a good investment. We use regular Skype so its a product that comes with Windows PC's as a standard app. We dont use Skype for Business so this cuts cost overall.
  • Using the basic functions of Skype and not Skype for business does have some downsides but you do save money. There are many other apps we use as well as Skype in order to accomplish all of our goals.
  • The downside of course is that the more you want Skype to do, the more money it will cost the organization as a whole. It does have many more functions which you have to upgrade to Skype for business for. That is my only criticism.
