    Likelihood to Recommend

    Staffbase GmbH

    Staffbase is well-suited for companies who want to drive and measure employee engagement through meaningful content. I wouldn't recommend it for companies that maintain a complex SharePoint environment with years of legacy content. It is not intended to be a CMS system. It is a dynamic platform that makes it's easy to share information through the mobile or desktop app and email and push notifications. You don't need a large team to manage it.

    Vidyo

    I've had HR professionals ask about using it for interviews. Gone are the days where we have to spend hundreds of dollars to fly candidates in or limit ourselves to phone interviews. Vidyo with it's high reliability has saved the organization thousands in travel costs with candidate recruitment. Business meetings that can often be troubling to get leaders and executive all in one room, Vidyo has functioned extraordinarily well in bringing in people from home, on the road, or the airport. Mobile capabilities are easy and fast. Quick daily calls and chats in the office are probably best suited for the free options out there as Vidyo is not a free service like others. Better yet general phone calls will suffice.

    Pros

    Staffbase GmbH

    • Easy to use back-end for posting and managing content—you don't have to rely on IT for support.
    • Software update releases are included in the licensing fees. No need to get outside developers involved in making changes to the platform.
    • Employee segmentation is extremely easy with an API from your HRIS system.
    • Translations are a breeze!
    • Creating forms on the go is easy and efficient!
    • Use your existing organization's SSO for ease of use and security.

    Vidyo

    • I didn't have to sign up, I just need to log into the "room" I was supposed to, so unlike Skype or other instruments, I didn't need to spend time and create my own account.
    • To be honest, the largest online class I've attended had 10 people in it (besides the teacher), but it was a good quality connection.
    • I enjoyed the ability to ask questions or clarifications in the chat (without having to turn on my microphone, so that the teacher could answer the question when he/she finished the thought).

    Cons

    Vidyo

    • The design and the branding give little to be desired
    • Customer support is below average
    • The API must be rewritten and add more functions that are commonly requested.
    • Project codes are not well maintained and hard to find.

        Vidyo

        We have an internal tech team dedicated to setup and troubleshooting of Vidyo. This makes it very easy, because we have access to our own employees for help. Rarely have I or anyone I work with had to escalate something to Vidyo themselves, and we're lucky to have the internal administrators that run the show. Almost like Vidyo is ours and ours alone.

        Alternatives Considered

        Staffbase GmbH

        Since we selected Staffbase, they are one of a few companies that haven't been acquired or changed its business model. We would have invested a lot of time and money rebuilding our intranet otherwise. We selected them because of the standard features included, the free updates, and the reasonable licensing fees. They understand the value of communicating with non-desk employees and keeping them engaged.

        Vidyo

        Vidyo is better than the competitors for large meetings with many participants, due to ease of use for participants - everything in-browser has a very low threshold. Due to its lack of breakout rooms, it is less suited for smaller (or internal) meetings, where you can expect everyone to install a client.

        Return on Investment

        Staffbase GmbH

        • Engagement levels increased for non-desk employees without access to a PC.
        • We leverage the tool as part of our crisis management activities, without having to invest in an additional platform.
        • We can issue surveys quickly without investing in additional engagement tools.

        Vidyo

        • It did help us reach the objective of education - after a while, everyone had a chance to connect and the quality of video/audio once you're in is great. It's just getting there that isn't up to par (but hopefully would be changed in next versions).
