Likelihood to Recommend

Webex Events

Cisco Webex Events is well suited for internal meetings or all-staff presentations. I would not recommend it be used for client-facing or stakeholder presentations, education seminars or any particular event where a branding opportunity would be valuable (since this is unavailable in Webex Events)

Webex Meetings

Webex Meetings is extremely useful in a corporate call or with a call that will contain a large audience. The software has role-based hosting and co-hosting systems. If you are the presenter, you can easily present with webex whiteboard feature. You can quote text in the chat area as well as create a thread while replying to a text directed to you. Webex Meetings contain an amazing AI enabled feature which lets the webcam focus on the person automatically when he/she is speaking.

Pros

Webex Events

  • Training - trusted platform for training purposes
  • Real-time - remote participants can provide real-time feedback via voice or chat
  • Interface - the interface is fairly simple and easy to understand for someone who has never used the platform before. The barrier to entry is relatively low.
Marcus Manderson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webex Meetings

  • Immersive Share - It converts the shared screen as the virtual background.
  • Noise Removal - It enhances the speaker's audio and removes extra background noises. (It is an essential feature for Work from Home)
  • Reactions/Gestures - Attendees can respond with emojis, and animated reactions.

Cons

Webex Events

  • WebEx lacks some capability and functionality compared to other products available (i.e. Adobe Connect).
  • The video output that WebEx produces are in a format that is not universal (.arf). This means that editing the video can be somewhat troublesome.
  • WebEx sometimes has issues loading with certain browsers.
Brennan Andrews | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webex Meetings

  • Accessing via web application version or via browser is a bit problematic some time. It is bit problematic as some companies don't allows employees to installs application on office laptops.
  • Ability to provide good video and content share can be improved for low speed internet connections.
  • More customization options can be enabled for the user for his ease of access on the main User interface.

Cisco Webex Meetings is a platform that consistently performs well and outperforms some of the other solutions that we have used, such as Zoom. It is user friendly and helps our organization accomplish the goal of connecting with external contacts to conduct meetings and share information

Cisco Webex Events allows us to connect with internal and external users. Cisco Webex Events is easy to use and set up. It has great video and audio quality. It has always been available for our scheduled events. And COVID-19, has allowed us to continue conducting our panel discussions and focus groups to keep new product development moving forward at a rapid pace.

Cisco Webex Meetings is a really easy-to-use solution. Cisco has a mentality linked to joining meetings: one button to push. There is always the same big green button that appears everywhere—on invitation emails, in the calendar, on videoconferencing devices, on the application in our phones and tablets. One button and the meeting is started. Anyone can start a meeting.The solution is therefore minimally demanding for IT teams, and even easy to set up and support for smaller environments where there simply isn't an IT team.

It has a wider coverage and comprehensive functionality that makes communication easier and faster and it is always available.I use Cisco Webex Meetings on a daily basis to meet with my colleagues virtually. It provides us with the ease and flexibility of connecting with each other no matter where we are, as long as we have some sort of Internet connection with us.

Regarding the performance of Cisco Webex Meetings, I can say that as long as the basic hardware and connectivity requirements are met, and based on the type of implementation you are carrying out, I can consider Cisco Webex Meetings as the market tool. with higher performance. Taking into account that in the option of implementing your own Cisco Webex Meetings server in your data center, you may experience some minor inconveniences that must be dealt with internally.

Since it is cloud hosted, it stays in Cisco data centers, and they have been very reliable. That doesn't mean they don't have issues--all services do--but when they have, we had lots of communication and they were very proactive and made sure all of our issues were resolved.

The response time is very fast via email. Most of the time, they also follow-up with a call but I usually need my questions answered via email.I think their support emails are bit bland and impersonal. They may think it's a good idea to list all applicable managers in their emails but that's not really all the important to me. In fact seeing so many people listed makes me wonder if I'd have to contact someone else to get my question answered or problem resolved.

That we needed complex implementation that we didn't get tells me 2 things: 1) the product was not designed in a way that "just worked" like some of its peers (Zoom / BlueJeans) and 2) had our company defined actual user needs and validated / verified that they had bought something that matched those, we would have pursued features / designs more closely aligned with what the product actually does: screen share, sometimes video, definitely VOIP audio (always an option regardless of license), and easy recording and retrieval of meetings.

Alternatives Considered

Webex Events

We have now started using Zoom as it is relatively cheaper and also people are now more used to it as for small group meetings, this is preferred tool in our company. License to host Cisco Webex Events is limited to only HR department or senior executives in our company, hence for more formal events this is preferred tool.

Webex Meetings

Cisco Webex Meetings stacks up fairly well against the other products similar to Cisco Webex Meetings like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, RingCentral, GoToMeeting, etc. All of these tools function very similarly to one another, the main differentiator between all of the other products and Cisco Webex Meetings is that Cisco Webex Meetings does not offer a free solution where the other ones do. This can be a huge factor for some that are making the decision between choosing one of these tools as it can be fairly costly. The reason we selected to use Cisco Webex Meetings is that our meetings require a specific level of security, and we found that Webex offered one of the most secure platforms.

The service referenced in this review refers to the option in the cloud. Said Webex Meetings service is quickly and easily scalable both in number of users and in the characteristics and services associated with the contracted plan. A basic plan can be contracted according to the needs of each organization and if it were necessary to grow, for example in number of participants, it can be done by improving the plan.

Return on Investment

Webex Events

  • We are currently only using Webex Events for webinars with external clients or stakeholders, since it is too cost prohibitive to use it internally.
  • Webex Events is cost prohibitive even for use with only external users, given that there are similar tools with similar functionality at lower price points.
  • Webex Events has enabled us to reach users far and wide, but is not unique in its ability to do this.

Webex Meetings

  • Positively it definitely Less traveling expenses per person (it could have been 6k per year per person in Hotel, Airfare, meals)
  • We see each other more often than while in the office
  • Meetings are arrange more easily, in an ordered manner as well as make everyone be more punctual.
