Whereby

[Whereby] is great for small teams within an organization. It is simple to use and quick to join. It can't be your main communication tool as it lacks most of the core features. Screen sharing quality is great. It can't handle large meetings. If video quality is utmost priority then this tool isn't for you.

Pros

Whereby

  • Whereby does not require any download file?
  • We can easily join meeting with only two clicks.
  • [The] link is short and easy to share. Unlike other software where [the] link is 30+ words.
  • The emoji collection and response on the screen [are] very ideal.

Cons

Whereby

  • The paid version may have dial-in. But I have always used the free version. Dial-in is typically required for an "official" multi-purpose teleconference platform.
  • I did have some trouble with larger groups (5+) when it was Appear.in but almost always use it for small 1-on-1 or 3 person meetings.

We are using a larger tool suite that already includes video conferencing instead of our older approach of using different apps from different vendors.appear.in has a simple but great set of features but its pricing scheme is not as scalable as we really need in a 500+ employee company.

Very easy to use, technical and non-technical colleagues have used it with no instructions needed. That says all about the app and services.

Never had to contact support, so we cannot give a rating for their overall support. When we noticed the audio was not always great quality, we simply educated our users to mute the mic and use the in-room conference phone which is connected via a dedicated VOIP link and had much better voice quality. The video performance varied by locations network speed and found it got much worse when the room size increased to over 4 connections.

After a recommendation from a partner, as the system is very easy to use, we simply start.

Alternatives Considered

Whereby

I did not evaluate other applications against Whereby, because we had a very specific need, which was the partner that we would use the solution, only accepted to use Whereby, so, we accepted to use the solution. As it was for a specific period, there was no problem. And in the end, it proved to be a very stable, very fast solution, with no need for crazy plugins or anything. Basically, it was access[ed] and use.

Return on Investment

Whereby

  • In general, any sort of online collaborations saves a lot on your budget. The meetings are rather more on time and can be efficient and short.
  • Easy to drop-by and have a small talk with clients/teammates within COVID era.
  • The URL makes you look fancy instead of a random hash.
