Likelihood to Recommend

Webex App

I don't see any scenario where it could be less appropriate. Communication and collaboration between people is very important in any scenario today. So, Webex App is the most secure (NSA approved), the easiest to use, and quick to deploy software that fits with every company or team. If you have distributed teams, it's even better to keep everyone in sync.

I will highly
recommend this application to the entire business sector; this tool will
help you get rid of extra expense that
[was] spent on traveling, this software gives you freedom of work and it is
available in various plans based on your team size, thus they allow you to
choose according to the budget.

Pros

Webex App

  • Webex App is great for sharing content and in a hurry. With a click of a button, you can screen share to coworkers, or fire up a Webex Meeting, right from the same Webex App window you were just chatting in.
  • Webex App does a great job of allowing custom notifications, so you can filter out some of the daily noise and interruptions. I have my Webex App configured to have my most important notifications on all the time, and the noisy rooms that we're all a part of, are set to mentions only. This works particularly well for me, so that I don't miss any of the large and important updates that might be sent through those spaces, but lets me catch up on the information in those spaces at my leisure.
  • Webex App also does a great job of integrating into our existing Cisco Unified Communications Manager, so that we can have seamless access between our PCs, Phones, Mobile Phones, and many more! We use Webex App to make sure we can connect and collaborate with each other, no matter where we may be.
  • Webex App does a wonderful job of gathering, scheduling, and providing information regarding my plethora of daily meetings! I use it daily to manage, host, and launch meetings throughout the day. I even use Webex App to help and track my busy schedule.

  • It just works. Biggest complaint with our previous solution is that it took 10 minutes to connect to a meeting. Now, our users connect instantaneously.
  • Dashboard is fantasitic. Can access real time information to troubleshoot calls.
  • Admin ports offers quite a bit of information. Like that it's a one stop shop to access everything I need to administer the site, users, run reports and access the dashboard.
  • Tickets get resolved quickly.
  • Feature requests are realized quickly.
Diana Anderson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Webex App

  • Multiple versions of Webex apps on Desktop and Mobile makes it difficult to manage
  • Cisco could really improve the app integration across different platforms similar to what main competitors have been doing
  • Occasional quality issues and meeting drop outs with Cisco Webex meetings
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoom

  • Using it for recording practice interviews and playing back for critiquing, is awkward and kludgy at best. The steps are: Record the session, then END THE MEETING so that Zoom can save the recording. Then get the recording ready to play, then have the client log in AGAIN, you log in AGAIN, share the screen, play the recording.
  • Zoom should make it possible to have the interviewer, especially if the practice interview is recorded, to make themselves SMALL throughout the whole recording so that *the candidate* is the focus on the screen. Neither the Speaker view or the Gallery view does this.
  • There should be a separate timer on Zoom for the recording portion of the screen. I realize I can do this myself manually, but why can’t Zoom do it for me?
  • Zoom needs to have a way to get feedback like this. I could not find a way to give them this feedback on their product, on their site or in the dashboard. All we get is a database that is tone deaf. Nowhere could I find any "Feedback? Click here." Not good.
  • If by these suggestions I’m asking for more functionality, I understand an increased cost. But small companies like mine cannot pay hundreds of dollars a month - please have a very functional version that small firms can still afford. Thank you.

Now, we can't see any other option but Cisco Webex Teams and Cisco's collaboration products to keep our communications up to date and with enough tools and features to confront any posible situation, being a normal work year or a year like this 2020, wich has make us all prove ourselves what we're able to do in manners we haven't even think of before.

We're sticking with Zoom for the foreseeable future--given its compelling feature set, ease of use, and advanced technology, there's just no other competition to be excited about. Plus it's a Gartner-recognized industry leader, so it's a rather easy choice.

Usability

The platform is incredible usable for day to day work life, especially during the Covid-19 era when the majority of us are remote. The features like creating a space or leveraging your personal room are similar to jumping in a conference room if we were in person. I have been able to maintain high levels of productivity consistently as I would have in the office over the past 15months. Although only transitioning to Webex in the last couple of months, the features allow for an all in one experience which just makes that collaboration and communication even simpler

Everything is easy to understand and use, new users need no training. On the flipside there are minor annoyances such as calendar export being cumbersome (need re-auth every time) and also not having recordings shared within a team or forcing people to name them.

Zoom has among the best performance of any video conference platform, as I've mentioned several times. Besides that, their Chat platform works great, and their back end always runs smooth. It's unfortunate that reporting can now only be done by one month at a time, but nonetheless, it only takes a second to run any kind of Zoom report, whether it's an attendee report, Poll results, a user report, a list of meetings from the past month, etc.

WebEx [(formerly Webex Teams)] service, being the general service provided for all applications developed by cisco, has an exemplary response speed of only a couple of hours from the time the support ticket is submitted. We like that the Webex team provides accurate information to assist in the resolution of any conflicts that may arise.

As I've written before, Zoom makes us feel like we matter and that we're a client rather than a customer. They want us to succeed and they put in the time to make sure that we do. I feel like they're more of a business partner rather than simply a vendor or supplier. They spent a lot of time onboarding with us, giving us demos, helping us get set up, and then giving us follow-up to be sure it's going well.

I am very satisfied with my experience with Webex App in online training. The creation of the event is very easy with the possibility of scheduling it in advance.

Very easy to create. All operations are done without any problems with our business growth. All people like the experience including me as an instructor. The tools that WebEx App offers us are very complete for working in a virtual classroom, whether it is sharing the screen, the different display modes, the whiteboard, or even the scoring tools on the screen, it allows me to do my job as an instructor as if I was face to face with the participants.

If you receive any pushback from higher ups, point to any of the various positive reviews like this one. Or show Zoom's excellent Gartner report, or articles describing Zoom's partnership with Sequoia capital. It's not difficult to show how Zoom is a trustworthy industry leader with best-in-class technology.

Alternatives Considered

Webex App

Honestly, I think Slack might be better than Webex when it comes to document sharing and the chat feature (DMs and groups). I love the "channel" concept. But Slack does not stand up against Webex when it comes to integrating features such as phone call/device connection. If Webex did not have this feature, I would most likely fight harder to use Slack.
Taylor S. Shelberg, MBA | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoom

All of the above three have their own advantages and disadvantages. For example, Teams has a lot of advantages like a special channel for communication, but does not allow us to see who removed us or muted us. However, it does have the attendee and presenter feature. Another thing is it consumes a lot of internet. Google Meet has an instant meet option and several other factors, but we still felt other than the security issue Zoom was enough for us.

Because the Basic licenses are completely free, and because it's very easy to configure and install Zoom, and because anyone can join Zoom from a link without needing an account, scaling is a Breeze. There are absolutely no roadblocks. My company keeps adding more Zoom Pro license every week since it's so in demand. We were able to convert users from several different platforms onto Zoom with no trouble at all.

Return on Investment

Webex App

  • Cisco Webex Team is extremely user friendly
  • We can use the additional feature to make your conferencing call very effective and productive.
  • While in this pandemic, we can share our issue through the share features so we can easily resolve our problem
  • Should be more work on notification and video sharing files.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoom

  • Zoom has really helped our travel costs! Zoom's technology has made it possible for us to have a wonderful uninterrupted high-quality experience. With such a high standard met for video conferencing, the need for meeting in person or traveling for meetings has shrunk significantly, which has also helped shrink our carbon footprint.
  • Zoom has helped us significantly increase our productivity. Most of our information users weren't using our previous tech because the experience just wasn't there. With Zoom, they feel more confident in the video tech, and that has increased engagement during meetings ten-fold.
