It hosts a cloud PBX system and offers capabilities for incorporating team collaboration into video meetings.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/3v/bM/2K7CRNBH3T71.PNGGo - Set - ReadyTalkWe use ReadyTalk to offer a wide range of free webinars addressing key topics that affect businesses. We also use ReadyTalk for internal meetings. ReadyTalk is used regionally for our organization. It is seen as a reliable conference tool that helps use clearly communicate to our stakeholders. Our live and recorded webinars are key in lead generation for our sales team.,Excellent customer service and support Clear audio with great features to quickly connect Easy to use user interface,More room for customization on the registration templates and screen layout Expand language support to make it a global solution Hosted recording notifications,8,ReadyTalk cost is truly competitive compared to the other top conference providers. Our webinars - while free, are still the number one lead generator for our organization. We have worked with ReadyTalk to implement notifications when the hosted recording exceeds the limitation to be stored for free, thus we can transfer the media to storage, avoiding additional cost.,WebEx Meetings and Skype for Business,Articulate 360, Adobe Photoshop, Google AnalyticsReadyTalk is the bestWe use ReadyTalk company-wide for everything from conference calls to webinars. It facilitates team calls, internal and external webinars with upwards of 1,000 attendees.,ReadyTalk has fantastic support for it's users. They can even kick off webinars and are always very professional. Unlike some other services we've used in the past, there's never any audio issues or screen-lagging, even with large groups on webinars. The ability to run polls and surveys during/after a webinar are great. With the right set of questions in the after-call survey you can get some great information from prospects and customers!,I have no areas of improvement for ReadyTalk.,9,ReadyTalk has been our main lead generation source for the last 6+ years. I think majority of our customers have attended at least one webinar. Using ReadyTalk we've been able to educate our customers and retain them.,WebEx Meetings and GoToMeeting,Salesforce Commerce Cloud, Marketo, PardotReadyTalk ReviewWe use ReadyTalk across our entire business platform. Our sales team uses it for demos and webinars while our account managers and support team use it for training and screen shares. It is a great tool for when you need to quickly share your screen or if you have multiple people/teams joining the call/screen share from different areas.,Screen share/conference calling: They make it quick and easy to join a meeting for your guests. They don't need to download anything; all they need to do is click on the link and enter the access code. Mobile App: The app has been great for our team as they can now easily start a meeting with a click of a button from the app. Recordings: It is very easy to record a webinar or conference call which you can then download.,The ReadyTalk system defaults to sending out the toll-free number which ReadyTalk changes extra for using. We have to have multiple calls with ReadyTalk to set it up where it defaults to sending the 303 conference line out. We use Readytalk with Hubspot (which they have an integration with), but it is a very complicated integration and confusing to use.,8,This has been a great ROI for us as we use this for demos to show how our products works This has also been great for our training as we can walk new clients through how our system works and help us retain current clients.,Join.me,HubSpot, GrooveHQ, SlackGlobalMeet as a serviceGlobalMeet is used by our entire organization to facilitate virtual meetings and conference calls. We use this product for training purposes through uploading PowerPoints or by using the screen share feature to demonstrate a live concept. When a web conference is not necessary we use the voice-only feature to provide a place to call in.,Something that GlobalMeet does well is distributing a meeting to users. The system integrates well with our Outlook system and allows easy meeting distributions. GlobalMeet is good at providing an easy way to record web meetings. The feature works well and is easy to download after.,GlobalMeet as a system seems to be lacking in a few areas. Particularly, I wish there was a better way to track meeting attendees. There is an email that goes out after the meeting of the attendees, but often this list is incomplete, or is not an accurate reflection of the attendees. GlobalMeet often does not work when we need it to. Even though I have the app installed on my computer, whenever I try to pull up a meeting it works only half the time. Other times it will go straight to the web version even though I have the app. GlobalMeet is not very user-friendly. It is clunky, and does not make the life of the presenter or "host" easier.,2,GlobalMeet has saved our organization time and money so that we do not have to travel to our outlying locations to perform training. The ROI has mostly been felt in cost savings related to travel.,Cisco WebEx Teams (formerly Cisco Spark),Oracle HCM Cloud, UltiProThere are better solutionsWe schedule meetings with staff and customers and we use GlobalMeet to have a centralized location for everyone to call in at. Some people may be working from home, working off-site or in a different part of the country. It's a way to get everybody together. You can share screens and have an integrated meeting.,I like the screen sharing features. I like the audio features such as muting and recording options. Integration with Outlook to create calendar appointments and add additional people to the meeting.,Sometimes there is a lag when I'm presenting in a meeting. I have also experienced lags when sharing my screen. As far as I know, this isn't available on mobile devices. Sometimes the quality is bad and we have had people who were unable to join or were not able to hear other participants.,4,We have had some challenges with this software. Some people had difficulties calling in and some people got dropped from calls. This has led to inefficiencies in our calls. People have had to install updates which led to delay times in joining a meeting. Audio is sometimes hard to hear and we have had to reschedule our calls.,Skype,Cubby, StatCounterReadyTalk Makes Your Sales Campaigns That Much More SophisticatedWe currently use ReadyTalk in a number of capacities including marketing, sales, and product demonstrations. All of which utilize the screen share and call-in conferencing features that ReadyTalk provides for paid customers. This has been a great tool to use for client product demonstrations and sales pitches, especially when the client is unfamiliar with our software.,ReadyTalk has been great for conference calls. ReadyTalk's screen share feature allows you to choose specific monitors to share, specific applications to share and even specific portions of your screen. ReadyTalk allows us to engage with a client directly and efficiently in a very professional manner.,If ReadyTalk provided an easier way to set up the initial call through a different platform aside from email, it may make things a bit simpler. ReadyTalk's monitor-specific screensharing process is a bit clunky and could be a bit better in identifying which monitor has been selected for sharing. ReadyTalk's admin dashboard could use a UI update.,9,ReadyTalk has definitely had a positive impact on our ROI purely because it helps us generate sales and close on larger accounts that may have not closed had we not had a screenshare tool.,GoToMeeting,Adobe Acrobat DC, Adobe Photoshop, Google Ads (formerly AdWords)ReadyTalk, made easyReadyTalk is used across the entire organization for communication and presentations. Mostly it is used to train our demo team.,Great share screen ability Fast and easy log in and dial in Easy to navigate and use Low bandwith use,Easier way to share files Lower subscription cost Better quality of recording sessions,10,Well trained staff Better quality demos Increased sales,ZoomReadyTalk's Support & Integrations Streamline Business OperationsWe support users of ReadyTalk through our marketing agency. Our clients use ReadyTalk as a webinar platform, and one of the primary reasons is because of the integration with HubSpot. It is primarily used by marketing, but we also have instances where HR departments utilize it as well. It solves the issue of manually creating workflows in HubSpot and importing lists of registrants and attendees from webinars, and allows for a more streamlined process for users and attendees.,Support from their team is much better than their competitors. HubSpot integration. Automation capabilities.,Ease of use for attendees is sometimes difficult with the need to continually download. It takes longer to train and onboard meeting presenters/hosts.,9,Streamline marketing automation. Allow for emails to be sent via HubSpot to stay branded and allow for advanced analytics.,GoToWebinar,HubSpot, Wistia, Salesforce.comDecent Conferencing for a Distributed WorkforceWe use ReadyTalk across our entire organization, which spans across multiple countries. ReadyTalk is our primary means of hosting web and voice conferences. We use its screen sharing, voice conferencing, and recording capabilities along with its instant messaging to run "polls" during some of our meetings. We use ReadyTalk both on our individual computers and phones, including for our remote and work-from-home workers, as well as in our conferencing rooms. We even use it via mobile devices when necessary. We also have ReadyTalk integrated with our email and calendar tools (Outlook).,Merges multiple collaboration capabilities in one place: screen share, IM, and voice collaboration Integrates with other products such as Outlook calendar Provides reliable recording technology to capture communications/meetings,Buggy behavior especially for screen sharing; sometimes, screen sharing just stops working. We've often found this is because another instance of ReadyTalk is still running in the background and it failed to close entirely when we left the last meeting. Unreliable softphone - we typically have to dial in from a cell or landline and cannot use the computer itself to connect to audio as it won't work. Very slow at promoting co-presenters and can be buggy when trying to transition between people for screen sharing.,7,Increased collaboration between all teams Enhanced communication across time zones, states, and even countries; enables us to have an engaged distributed workforce Enables us to have remote workers/work from home Enables us to capture and record our communications and maintain these recordings so that they can be reused in trainings, etc.,GoToMeeting, FoxDen, Skype for Business, Slack and GoToWebinar,Slack, Skype for Business, Snagit, FoxDen,Sharing your screen Launching a conference or joining a conference from a computer so that it dials your phone Recording the conference,Initial integration with Outlook Trying to remember all of the audio commands Muting individual users if they forget to go on mute,Yes,7Easy to use conference toolWe use ReadyTalk every day for conferencing purposes. We are a company that allows all employees to work remotely, which is made possible with the use of ReadyTalk. We also use ReadyTalk with our clients to host webinars.,The screen sharing process is very intuitive and easy to use. Participants can "raise their hand" to ask the presenter questions. When using ReadyTalk for webinars, attendees can be placed in "listen only" mode, their microphones are automatically muted, and the webinar is recorded. Sending invitations for ReadyTalk is very convenient for organizing meetings of all sizes.,It would be beneficial if it were easier to switch from one presenter to another, when hosting webinars from multiple locations. Allow multiple screens to be shared at once. Allow open chat dialogue with all participants.,10,Positive ROI - no need to pay for travel expenses to meetings.,,Zoho Campaigns, GoDaddy, CanvaBasics covered, not much elseCurrently, ReadyTalk is being used by the entire organization where I work (which is small, <20 FTEs). We use ReadyTalk for internal meetings when one or more of our employees is working offsite and we also use ReadyTalk for external meetings with clients and partners. While most meetings are audio-only, we also use the visual components from time to time for PPT presentations.,The basic conference line functionality provided by ReadyTalk is useful to convene meetings with folks in different geographical areas. I like that I can provide them with the phone number and code, and anyone can join from various remote corners of the world. I like that you can set an automated reminder to go out to invitees in advance of calls. When the functionality is working, I like the integration with Google calendar.,Anything above the basic functionality is not super intuitive. For instance, the web meetings are "clunky" and I don't like how the last slides that were uploaded remain in place from one meeting to the next unless you manually remove them. Their engineering team is also slow to address glitches in my experience. Currently, there is an ongoing issue with ReadyTalk integration with Google calendar. To me, this is a major advantage of ReadyTalk, and missing that functionality decreases usefulness. There is no way to send a meeting reminder to ALL invitees, it only goes out to registered invitees.,7,Our team and partners are spread throughout different buildings in the same city, different cities, and different states. ReadyTalk allows us to collaborate despite not being in the same physical location. ReadyTalk allows us to record training sessions for review and dissemination. Unfortunately, ReadyTalk has also led to frustration and lost hours spent contacting support due to aforementioned cons, including non-working calendar integration functionality and non-intuitive meeting controls.,ReadyTalk: Meets our needs but customer support is their downfallReadyTalk is used to host "simu-live" webinars from our marketing departments. We primarily use this to scheduled webinars in various timezones or to re-promote previous webinars. We use this as a time-saving tool to better reach our potential customers and broadcast our products in a way to appear a live webinar is taking place to give them an experience nearly identical to a live webinar. We also use the panelist option to have support roles logged in at the time of the simu-live broadcast to monitor Q&A and other comments that come through. We also reference the reports function to view how well our audiences interact with us and also how we can adjust attentiveness in our webinars.,Ability to broadcast in various timezones Deep dive reports that give insight to various metrics Ability to schedule webinars far in advance,Customer support is less than helpful and incredibly hard to get in touch with and get issues resolved in a timely manner It is not possible to schedule multiple simu-live broadcasts at the same time without purchasing a second instance There is not a direct integration to Marketo that works easily,4,We currently use ReadTalk to drive awareness We are able to reach much more vast audiences we have not previously connected with due to time differences,ON24 and BrightTALK,BrightTALK, Slack, ZoomGlobalMeet is perfect conference call platform for small businessGlobalMeet is the platform used by our organization for conference calls with our board of directors and regional representatives. Our organization is a small non-profit, but all members use the software for any conference call needs. The ability to share the dial-in information with participants and use any phone makes it possible for the software to be used anywhere.,Easy to use system for business conference calls Recording feature useful to playback information from the meeting Accessibility of domestic and international call in numbers make it possible for participants to call in no matter where they are traveling or located.,Recording available for 90 days,9,Makes it possible to save travel costs for meeting needs,Zoom,Zoom,10,1,No,Price Product Usability,Possibly look at updates and extra tools available and help desk options for users unfamiliar with the product. I would appreciate a platform that allowed for cloud storage of meeting recordings instead of a platform that deletes the content after 30 days and/or has an option to purchase a DVD.Effective solution, but you can find betterOur business uses ReadyTalk for both internal and external communications. We use it strictly to conference in teams and individuals, whether remote or in the office. Aside from a secure conference line, the screen share capabilities are leveraged to demonstrate our solutions. This can entail both training and selling purposes. The conference recording functions also allow you to archive meetings and share them with others for instructional purposes.,ReadyTalk provides a safe and secure conference network for you to host conversations and conduct business. Easy access to a shared communication line. Integrates well with other internal solutions.,Not so friendly user interface—easy for us to navigate, but clients often get tripped up. Technical issues with launching the screen share are common (may be inevitable, but the screen share is far from quality). Difficult to access a shared network of conference recordings—would be very helpful for learning and instruction.,5,I am able to look back on past recorded meetings to drive home key points that the client previously referenced—helping me to close more deals. Time and efficiency are saved by providing the conference line with a shared access code. We are able to provide clients a visual overview of the solutions that we aim to sell.,ClearSlide,Cision PR Software, Salesforce Community Cloud, DocuSignGlobalMeet is Great!We assign every attorney in the firm with their own GlobalMeet account for conference calls. They have their own 800 number and passcodes to give to clients. They enjoy the 24-7 aspect of making and hosting a conference call where before IT support created a conference bridge, that took time for them, IT and reduced usable channels of our T1.,Easy to use - just dial-in with your 800 number, enter a passcode or host-code and you are connected to your conference call. Easy way of recording the conference call. We like the email confirmation that includes the participants and the number of minutes they were connected that is sent at the end of a conference call.,The web interface could be easier to navigate.,10,There hasn't been a huge impact on ROI in a financial sense. There's obviously a cost for the GlobalMeet service where before IT created conference bridges for the attorneys. The positive is the ease of use for attorneys and IT staff.,,AbacusLaw, Microsoft Access, Cisco ASA,Comments from one of our attorneys who is very technical and is a our Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Attorney: "Generally we tend to circulate feedback about issues we are having, things we need to do better at, etc. – but this evening I wanted to change that by sharing something positive: I really like GlobalMeet – it has excellent features, is easy to use whether as just a conference calling “bridge”, from the iPhone or iPad apps, or using it for web conferencing with the screen sharing feature, which I just used to review a forensics report before having it transmitted. Kudos to Chad for finding this excellent product – I’m a fan! ",Nothing is particularly difficult with GlobalMeet. The web interface could be upgraded, but it could be that I'm using and old version of the software.,Yes,10Would recommend GlobalMeet all day every day!It is being used as the main web conference system. Since we have employees globally, it helps facilitate communication between the team. The two departments that use GlobalMeet the most are sales and marketing as they are often in meetings and on the phone. The biggest business problem is addresses is that it has simplified the way we do web conferencing. Before GlobalMeet, we were using an audio conferencing line that allowed us to basically share presentations but we lacked so many features that we just never used it. For instance, as silly as it may sound, one of my favorite features is being able to see who is on the line. Before GlobalMeet, it would be 5 minutes of "who is on the line?" "Hi, who just joined?" Now, people just join in and it doesn't disrupt my meetings. Another business problem it solves is how easy it is to share documents and have multiple presenters. Again, simple little things but they really make a difference and makes the conferences easy.,Showing who is talking. This takes away any confusion you may have and prevents users to have to ask who is talking and when. Mobile application. So simple to use and easy to go from mobile to web. I don't think I've ever seen another application that do that. This is a strength because it allows me to have a little more flexibility with my meetings. Sharing documents. You can upload your file online and access it from anywhere at anytime. I am no longer having to remember to bring a flash drive with me to every meeting or email the document to the administrative assistant. Joining the meeting. Oh I can't say enough about this. When joining the meeting is a hassle, it doesn't make people too fond of coming in the first place. GlobalMeet has made it so easy by just calling you directly. Seriously, another one of my favorite feature. People are more on time and less frustrated.,Sometimes, I felt that the quizzes/polls froze on me and that definitely made it easier to keep the flow of the meeting as sometimes I've had to restart completely. I haven't used these features in a while and there has been several updates since then so that may be better now.,10,This would be a question better suited for my IT team, but I would say that one of the big positive I have seen from having GlobalMeet is simply that it has made flexibility a possibility at our company. We are able to have online meetings easily and without any of the pains we used to experience. The team is happier and more productive. I can't think of any negative impact honestly! Learning the software was really easy and it didn't take long at all for everyone to be comfortable with the product and start using it.,WebEx, GoToMeeting and Adobe Connect,SkypeMy take on ReadyTalkIt mainly being used in our Marketing department. Occasionally we use it in our Customer Success department. It makes running our webinars a little easier to deploy and get up and running while integrating with Marketo. We've tried other platforms such as WebEx but the way our IT department built the WebEx integration made it way more difficult to launch webinars vs Readytalk.,Working with an operator is extremely helpful, especially for new people who are just starting to use the tool. Running the software is very simple from my viewpoint. I download the software once and it just runs after that. Creating an event is very simple. I love how they allow you to easily adjust the time zones so you know when exactly you are creating the event.,It would be great if they had a way for attendees to see the chat messages. I feel like that gives more transparency. If ReadyTalk had a little bit of an easier way to integrate an offer into the actual webinar that would be great too. Setting up event requests in advance through a separate area in the tool would be easier if it were built right into the original request.,8,It's helped us launch and run webinars really quickly with Marketo, enabling us to be more efficient with our time and saving us money. Working with influencers we need to set up an additional training session so they can get familiar with the tool because it is so different than other platforms such as GoToWebinar. Using the web audio technology is a huge cost savings when compared to using their phone line integrations.,GoToWebinar and WebEx Event Center,Marketo, WebEx Meetings, PercolateReadyTalk, go ahead and give it a try!Readytalk is used company-wide for the most part, with the exception of our C-suite or traveling training teams. Readytalk is used in our company to conduct business meetings, conference calls, or any client facing or internal screen or call sharing options. We switched to the service because it allows the user conducting the call to have more control over who is able to attend, as well as a higher amount of attendees who are able to attend. It can be a really useful tool for departments who need to conduct bigger than average conference calls and/or meetings.,Has a high capacity for number of attendees who can attend a training call and/or client development meeting Screen sharing option is very user-friendly and intuitive. Account managers and Readytalk blogs are really helpful. Provide great tips and user best practices which is essential,The person who starts the meeting must be on the call the entire time, otherwise, the Readytalk conference line disconnects. If there is a way to pass off control, so the meeting arranger is able to leave the meeting without disrupting the flow of the call. More CRM (Salesforce ) integration capabilities down the road. For record keeping purposes If there was a Chrome extension that would be cool,7,Positive impact. Able to fluidly demonstrate our software over conference call at the drop of a dime Positively impacts clients onboarding process due to ability to screen share with a high amount of people at the same time Higher ROI due to ability to show clients our new platform before their purchase in order to show the value of our product in real time via Readytalk conference,ClearSlide and Zoom,ShoreTel, MS SharePoint, ChurnZeroGlobalMeet - A Superhero PlatformGlobalMeet is like that friend who is there in the background ready to jump in and help when things go wrong. Our company primarily uses some of the larger meeting programs but when those don't play well on other peoples' computers and we need a quick fix, GlobalMeet comes to the rescue!,Versatile software for Macs and PCs Has the ability to start a meeting in seconds Easy to learn tool for individuals of all experience levels,Globalmeet isn't as robust as some of the larger digital conference platforms but that's not necessarily a bad thing Some features like drawing on the presentation aren't are smooth as some of the competitors I'd like to see GlobalMeet do something different instead of being "WebEx-Lite",10,Dramatically cut down on amount of meetings that couldn't be had due to software malfunctions Increased the amount of time saved by quickly booting Globalmeet up during a time of software crisis Has saved digital conferences when dealing with clients that aren't technically savyTo use or not to useReadyTalk is currently being used in the webinar department of my organization to host webcasts. It addresses the needs of my organization to have a place to host webcasts and provide an archive, as well as post webcast reporting. It is a platform to input slides, as well as offer the opportunity for attendees to respond to polling questions.,Allows you to insert polls and polling questions even after the tool is live. Separates attendees from presenters (doesn't allow attendees to view the tool the same way, therefore not allowing them access to advancing the slides). Doesn't require the need for presenters to "pass control" when advancing slides. Good customer support.,Not a robust enough editing tool for recordings. Can be a very tedious and long process. No social media integration. Better phone sound quality. Less instances of audio dropping or recordings not syncing up with original live webinar. Event manager should stay on until end of webinar.,5,I can't say. I don't handle financials in my organization. But I would say the sound quality and the inability to download slides and CPE certificates has probably caused us to lose some of our audience.,ON24GlobalMeet is an excellent, efficient collaboration toolGlobalMeet is the only IT-approved and authorized web conferencing software at my organization. We use it for internal and external meetings. GlobalMeet helps us address connecting with our internal employees. We're a global company and in the headquarters office, less than one percent of all employees work here, so it's critical that we use this solution to be able to connect and share ideas and content anywhere and everywhere.,the connect-me function is outstanding! I never have to dial into a conference call. It works as soon as it loads. As the company standard, we're not waiting to download plugins or anything else in order to get going. The share a file option is great for collaboration,The option to take over screen sharing is kind of slow. That could be a bit quicker The whiteboard could be a little nicer. Reminds me of Paint on old computers. I wish it were easier to gather your recorded meetings. I don't like having to login and wait for a download.,9,I'm not responsible for the budget in this area, so I'm not sure how to answer ROI. I'm sure that it has reduced the need for travel because we can collaborate easily.,,2500,,reduce amount of travel associated with global teams have a standard software that's easy to use Allowing power users to have their own URLs and consistent conferencing numbers,I don't think we've been outside the box on this one.,more video conferencing - connections to our polycom system,10GlobalMeet Review TimeGlobalMeet is used for teleconferencing needs at least 2 of our locations.

We use ReadyTalk company-wide for everything from conference calls to webinars. It facilitates team calls, internal and external webinars with upwards of 1,000 attendees.
  • ReadyTalk has fantastic support for it's users. They can even kick off webinars and are always very professional.
  • Unlike some other services we've used in the past, there's never any audio issues or screen-lagging, even with large groups on webinars.
  • The ability to run polls and surveys during/after a webinar are great. With the right set of questions in the after-call survey you can get some great information from prospects and customers!
  • I have no areas of improvement for ReadyTalk.
ReadyTalk is great for group calls, training and webinars.

We use ReadyTalk across our entire business platform. Our sales team uses it for demos and webinars while our account managers and support team use it for training and screen shares. It is a great tool for when you need to quickly share your screen or if you have multiple people/teams joining the call/screen share from different areas.
  • Screen share/conference calling: They make it quick and easy to join a meeting for your guests. They don't need to download anything; all they need to do is click on the link and enter the access code.
  • Mobile App: The app has been great for our team as they can now easily start a meeting with a click of a button from the app.
  • Recordings: It is very easy to record a webinar or conference call which you can then download.
  • The ReadyTalk system defaults to sending out the toll-free number which ReadyTalk changes extra for using. We have to have multiple calls with ReadyTalk to set it up where it defaults to sending the 303 conference line out.
  • We use Readytalk with HubSpot (which they have an integration with), but it is a very complicated integration and confusing to use.
This is a great solution if you do a lot of conference calls or screen shares and even works well on your mobile device. We primarily went with ReadyTalk opposed to other similar solutions because of the integration with HubSpot which we have not been super pleased with however their system as a whole works great.

GlobalMeet as a service

Score 2 out of 10

GlobalMeet is used by our entire organization to facilitate virtual meetings and conference calls. We use this product for training purposes through uploading PowerPoints or by using the screen share feature to demonstrate a live concept. When a web conference is not necessary we use the voice-only feature to provide a place to call in.
  • Something that GlobalMeet does well is distributing a meeting to users. The system integrates well with our Outlook system and allows easy meeting distributions.
  • GlobalMeet is good at providing an easy way to record web meetings. The feature works well and is easy to download after.
  • GlobalMeet as a system seems to be lacking in a few areas. Particularly, I wish there was a better way to track meeting attendees. There is an email that goes out after the meeting of the attendees, but often this list is incomplete, or is not an accurate reflection of the attendees.
  • GlobalMeet often does not work when we need it to. Even though I have the app installed on my computer, whenever I try to pull up a meeting it works only half the time. Other times it will go straight to the web version even though I have the app.
  • GlobalMeet is not very user-friendly. It is clunky, and does not make the life of the presenter or "host" easier.
GlobalMeet is well suited for an organization that wants a simple web conference platform with no added features. It seems like this is the way to go if you want to not spend a lot of money for a service. GlobalMeet is not well suited for large organizations, or someone who needs to host multiple meetings and needs robust features such as attendance tracking, presentation sharing, and ease of use.

We schedule meetings with staff and customers and we use GlobalMeet to have a centralized location for everyone to call in at. Some people may be working from home, working off-site or in a different part of the country. It's a way to get everybody together. You can share screens and have an integrated meeting.
  • I like the screen sharing features.
  • I like the audio features such as muting and recording options.
  • Integration with Outlook to create calendar appointments and add additional people to the meeting.
  • Sometimes there is a lag when I'm presenting in a meeting. I have also experienced lags when sharing my screen.
  • As far as I know, this isn't available on mobile devices.
  • Sometimes the quality is bad and we have had people who were unable to join or were not able to hear other participants.
It is well suited if you need a centralized place for people to meet regardless of their geographical location. It's great if you have information on your screen that you would like to share, for example, if you are presenting a slide show. It's less appropriate for people on the go since you need a desktop to use the platform.

We currently use ReadyTalk in a number of capacities including marketing, sales, and product demonstrations. All of which utilize the screen share and call-in conferencing features that ReadyTalk provides for paid customers. This has been a great tool to use for client product demonstrations and sales pitches, especially when the client is unfamiliar with our software.
  • ReadyTalk has been great for conference calls.
  • ReadyTalk's screen share feature allows you to choose specific monitors to share, specific applications to share and even specific portions of your screen.
  • ReadyTalk allows us to engage with a client directly and efficiently in a very professional manner.
  • If ReadyTalk provided an easier way to set up the initial call through a different platform aside from email, it may make things a bit simpler.
  • ReadyTalk's monitor-specific screensharing process is a bit clunky and could be a bit better in identifying which monitor has been selected for sharing.
  • ReadyTalk's admin dashboard could use a UI update.
ReadyTalk is a great sales and marketing tool, and is even better for product demonstrations. We haven't yet used ReadyTalk for internal uses, but I feel that it would also be effective for employee trainings, etc. We primarily use ReadyTalk when we have a larger prospective client who is interested in a more detailed presentation after an initial call has already been made.

ReadyTalk is used across the entire organization for communication and presentations. Mostly it is used to train our demo team.
  • Great share screen ability
  • Fast and easy log in and dial in
  • Easy to navigate and use
  • Low bandwith use
  • Easier way to share files
  • Lower subscription cost
  • Better quality of recording sessions
ReadyTalk is great to do training with people that are working from home and also great to do product demos. We also use it for doing conference calls and discussions. The product is great, and provides all that we need in terms of ease of communication.

We support users of ReadyTalk through our marketing agency. Our clients use ReadyTalk as a webinar platform, and one of the primary reasons is because of the integration with HubSpot. It is primarily used by marketing, but we also have instances where HR departments utilize it as well. It solves the issue of manually creating workflows in HubSpot and importing lists of registrants and attendees from webinars, and allows for a more streamlined process for users and attendees.
  • Support from their team is much better than their competitors.
  • HubSpot integration.
  • Automation capabilities.
  • Ease of use for attendees is sometimes difficult with the need to continually download.
  • It takes longer to train and onboard meeting presenters/hosts.
It is well suited for webinars and larger scale events. It is not as well suited for day to day meetings and internal training due to the need to continually need to download the software. We recommend it for all of our clients using HubSpot for marketing automation to streamline their processes.

We use ReadyTalk across our entire organization, which spans across multiple countries. ReadyTalk is our primary means of hosting web and voice conferences. We use its screen sharing, voice conferencing, and recording capabilities along with its instant messaging to run "polls" during some of our meetings. We use ReadyTalk both on our individual computers and phones, including for our remote and work-from-home workers, as well as in our conferencing rooms. We even use it via mobile devices when necessary. We also have ReadyTalk integrated with our email and calendar tools (Outlook).
  • Merges multiple collaboration capabilities in one place: screen share, IM, and voice collaboration
  • Integrates with other products such as Outlook calendar
  • Provides reliable recording technology to capture communications/meetings
  • Buggy behavior especially for screen sharing; sometimes, screen sharing just stops working. We've often found this is because another instance of ReadyTalk is still running in the background and it failed to close entirely when we left the last meeting.
  • Unreliable softphone - we typically have to dial in from a cell or landline and cannot use the computer itself to connect to audio as it won't work.
  • Very slow at promoting co-presenters and can be buggy when trying to transition between people for screen sharing.
ReadyTalk is best for small to mid-sized conferences (say 15 people or fewer). It combines IM, screen sharing, and voice conferencing and does allow you to record your conferences without the need for separate software. However, I have typically seen more buggy behavior for larger conferences - in particular, it can be difficult to really control noise feedback from people who have failed to mute their lines. That's not to say it is unusable for large conferences (we still use it for our huge all-hands conferences twice a year), but I believe there's also a maximum number of people our licensing allows. I wouldn't use it for, say, a public webinar. But, it's good for internal communications.

We use ReadyTalk every day for conferencing purposes. We are a company that allows all employees to work remotely, which is made possible with the use of ReadyTalk. We also use ReadyTalk with our clients to host webinars.
  • The screen sharing process is very intuitive and easy to use. Participants can "raise their hand" to ask the presenter questions.
  • When using ReadyTalk for webinars, attendees can be placed in "listen only" mode, their microphones are automatically muted, and the webinar is recorded.
  • Sending invitations for ReadyTalk is very convenient for organizing meetings of all sizes.
  • It would be beneficial if it were easier to switch from one presenter to another, when hosting webinars from multiple locations.
  • Allow multiple screens to be shared at once.
  • Allow open chat dialogue with all participants.
I have nothing negative to say about ReadyTalk. I have been using it for 4 years without any issues. ReadyTalk is great for conference calls and webinars.

Currently, ReadyTalk is being used by the entire organization where I work (which is small, <20 FTEs). We use ReadyTalk for internal meetings when one or more of our employees is working offsite and we also use ReadyTalk for external meetings with clients and partners. While most meetings are audio-only, we also use the visual components from time to time for PPT presentations.
  • The basic conference line functionality provided by ReadyTalk is useful to convene meetings with folks in different geographical areas. I like that I can provide them with the phone number and code, and anyone can join from various remote corners of the world.
  • I like that you can set an automated reminder to go out to invitees in advance of calls.
  • When the functionality is working, I like the integration with Google calendar.
  • Anything above the basic functionality is not super intuitive. For instance, the web meetings are "clunky" and I don't like how the last slides that were uploaded remain in place from one meeting to the next unless you manually remove them.
  • Their engineering team is also slow to address glitches in my experience. Currently, there is an ongoing issue with ReadyTalk integration with Google calendar. To me, this is a major advantage of ReadyTalk, and missing that functionality decreases usefulness.
  • There is no way to send a meeting reminder to ALL invitees, it only goes out to registered invitees.
Think about your needs as an organization and whether you will be using primarily audio only or audio plus web. If audio only then ReadyTalk will certainly meet your need. If web, then shop around for functionality, support, and price. I am fairly "neutral" on ReadyTalk - neither a huge cheerleader nor a huge detractor.

ReadyTalk is used to host "simu-live" webinars from our marketing departments. We primarily use this to scheduled webinars in various timezones or to re-promote previous webinars. We use this as a time-saving tool to better reach our potential customers and broadcast our products in a way to appear a live webinar is taking place to give them an experience nearly identical to a live webinar. We also use the panelist option to have support roles logged in at the time of the simu-live broadcast to monitor Q&A and other comments that come through. We also reference the reports function to view how well our audiences interact with us and also how we can adjust attentiveness in our webinars.
  • Ability to broadcast in various timezones
  • Deep dive reports that give insight to various metrics
  • Ability to schedule webinars far in advance
  • Customer support is less than helpful and incredibly hard to get in touch with and get issues resolved in a timely manner
  • It is not possible to schedule multiple simu-live broadcasts at the same time without purchasing a second instance
  • There is not a direct integration to Marketo that works easily
ReadyTalk is a versatile platform that offers great services for both simu-live and live webinars, given they are not scheduled at the same time. Once the program flows in Marketo are figured out, it is quite easy to handle, the same goes with pulling attendee and engagement reports. The area ReadyTalk falls short is in their customer support. We have had four different representatives over the course of two years and have not seen any improvements. They always do respond but not in a prompt fashion that allows any issues to be resolved. We have also seen the connector between our ReadyTalk instance and our CRM break on various occasions and been told is is our CRM's fault when in fact is was an issue on their side. Though the customer support is poor, the function still meets our needs.

GlobalMeet is the platform used by our organization for conference calls with our board of directors and regional representatives. Our organization is a small non-profit, but all members use the software for any conference call needs. The ability to share the dial-in information with participants and use any phone makes it possible for the software to be used anywhere.
  • Easy to use system for business conference calls
  • Recording feature useful to playback information from the meeting
  • Accessibility of domestic and international call in numbers make it possible for participants to call in no matter where they are traveling or located.
  • Recording available for 90 days
GlobalMeet is perfect for small office settings that require multiple participants to be involved in a meeting that are in various geographical locations. Often our organization will have participants traveling, sometimes out of the country. Regardless of where they are located, they are able to dial in to meetings. Larger companies may find other platforms more functional for their needs.

Our business uses ReadyTalk for both internal and external communications. We use it strictly to conference in teams and individuals, whether remote or in the office. Aside from a secure conference line, the screen share capabilities are leveraged to demonstrate our solutions. This can entail both training and selling purposes. The conference recording functions also allow you to archive meetings and share them with others for instructional purposes.
  • ReadyTalk provides a safe and secure conference network for you to host conversations and conduct business.
  • Easy access to a shared communication line.
  • Integrates well with other internal solutions.
  • Not so friendly user interface—easy for us to navigate, but clients often get tripped up.
  • Technical issues with launching the screen share are common (may be inevitable, but the screen share is far from quality).
  • Difficult to access a shared network of conference recordings—would be very helpful for learning and instruction.
It works great for small-mid size group gatherings and meetings. That allows everybody to dial in at their leisure and alerts you when they join the conference. It does not carry much value in 1:1 meetings however, where clients expect you to call them directly rather than dial into the line—unless you explicitly make it clear to dial in.

We assign every attorney in the firm with their own GlobalMeet account for conference calls. They have their own 800 number and passcodes to give to clients. They enjoy the 24-7 aspect of making and hosting a conference call where before IT support created a conference bridge, that took time for them, IT and reduced usable channels of our T1.
  • Easy to use - just dial-in with your 800 number, enter a passcode or host-code and you are connected to your conference call.
  • Easy way of recording the conference call.
  • We like the email confirmation that includes the participants and the number of minutes they were connected that is sent at the end of a conference call.
  • The web interface could be easier to navigate.
On demand conference call and recording of calls, especially when you have a large group of participants.

It is being used as the main web conference system. Since we have employees globally, it helps facilitate communication between the team. The two departments that use GlobalMeet the most are sales and marketing as they are often in meetings and on the phone. The biggest business problem is addresses is that it has simplified the way we do web conferencing. Before GlobalMeet, we were using an audio conferencing line that allowed us to basically share presentations but we lacked so many features that we just never used it. For instance, as silly as it may sound, one of my favorite features is being able to see who is on the line. Before GlobalMeet, it would be 5 minutes of "who is on the line?" "Hi, who just joined?" Now, people just join in and it doesn't disrupt my meetings. Another business problem it solves is how easy it is to share documents and have multiple presenters. Again, simple little things but they really make a difference and makes the conferences easy.
  • Showing who is talking. This takes away any confusion you may have and prevents users to have to ask who is talking and when.
  • Mobile application. So simple to use and easy to go from mobile to web. I don't think I've ever seen another application that do that. This is a strength because it allows me to have a little more flexibility with my meetings.
  • Sharing documents. You can upload your file online and access it from anywhere at anytime. I am no longer having to remember to bring a flash drive with me to every meeting or email the document to the administrative assistant.
  • Joining the meeting. Oh I can't say enough about this. When joining the meeting is a hassle, it doesn't make people too fond of coming in the first place. GlobalMeet has made it so easy by just calling you directly. Seriously, another one of my favorite feature. People are more on time and less frustrated.
  • Sometimes, I felt that the quizzes/polls froze on me and that definitely made it easier to keep the flow of the meeting as sometimes I've had to restart completely. I haven't used these features in a while and there has been several updates since then so that may be better now.
Well Suited: Any small or large meetings you may have internally or with external stakeholders. Whenever you have to share a presentation or go over documents, this is the tool for you.

Less Appropriate: I wouldn't recommend using GlobalMeet for interviews or anything that would require face-to-face connections. While they do offer a nice camera feature, for me it's just not a strength and wouldn't be as good for job interviews or more of that one-on-one setting.

My take on ReadyTalk

Vetted Review

It mainly being used in our Marketing department. Occasionally we use it in our Customer Success department. It makes running our webinars a little easier to deploy and get up and running while integrating with Marketo. We've tried other platforms such as WebEx but the way our IT department built the WebEx integration made it way more difficult to launch webinars vs Readytalk.
  • Working with an operator is extremely helpful, especially for new people who are just starting to use the tool.
  • Running the software is very simple from my viewpoint. I download the software once and it just runs after that.
  • Creating an event is very simple. I love how they allow you to easily adjust the time zones so you know when exactly you are creating the event.
  • It would be great if they had a way for attendees to see the chat messages. I feel like that gives more transparency.
  • If ReadyTalk had a little bit of an easier way to integrate an offer into the actual webinar that would be great too.
  • Setting up event requests in advance through a separate area in the tool would be easier if it were built right into the original request.
It is very well suited for running Simulive events. This is where you have a pre-recorded presentation that's been perfected and allows you to still run a live event, answer questions, and interact with audience without having to worry about presentation glitches that almost always occur when doing them live. For running internal meetings it's harder to integrate into our organization when compared to other tools like WebEx.

Readytalk is used company-wide for the most part, with the exception of our C-suite or traveling training teams. Readytalk is used in our company to conduct business meetings, conference calls, or any client facing or internal screen or call sharing options. We switched to the service because it allows the user conducting the call to have more control over who is able to attend, as well as a higher amount of attendees who are able to attend. It can be a really useful tool for departments who need to conduct bigger than average conference calls and/or meetings.
  • Has a high capacity for number of attendees who can attend a training call and/or client development meeting
  • Screen sharing option is very user-friendly and intuitive.
  • Account managers and Readytalk blogs are really helpful. Provide great tips and user best practices which is essential
  • The person who starts the meeting must be on the call the entire time, otherwise, the Readytalk conference line disconnects. If there is a way to pass off control, so the meeting arranger is able to leave the meeting without disrupting the flow of the call.
  • More CRM (Salesforce ) integration capabilities down the road. For record keeping purposes
  • If there was a Chrome extension that would be cool
It would be appropriate for specific departments that may have a more limited budget, but looking for a conference/webinar tool that allows for a lot of main user control, yet is expansive enough to allow a lot of participants to attend. It would be less appropriate if there is more than one speaker who needs to be actively involved in the call and/or presentation.

GlobalMeet is like that friend who is there in the background ready to jump in and help when things go wrong. Our company primarily uses some of the larger meeting programs but when those don't play well on other peoples' computers and we need a quick fix, GlobalMeet comes to the rescue!
  • Versatile software for Macs and PCs
  • Has the ability to start a meeting in seconds
  • Easy to learn tool for individuals of all experience levels
  • Globalmeet isn't as robust as some of the larger digital conference platforms but that's not necessarily a bad thing
  • Some features like drawing on the presentation aren't are smooth as some of the competitors
  • I'd like to see GlobalMeet do something different instead of being "WebEx-Lite"
I love GlobalMeet. It's easy to use in almost every way possible, easy to install, easy to boot up, and best of all I've never had this platform freeze during the middle of a presentation. Nothing is worse than getting ready to present a demo or close a deal but a software program is preventing you from achieving your goal. GlobalMeet comes through for you.

ReadyTalk is currently being used in the webinar department of my organization to host webcasts. It addresses the needs of my organization to have a place to host webcasts and provide an archive, as well as post webcast reporting. It is a platform to input slides, as well as offer the opportunity for attendees to respond to polling questions.
  • Allows you to insert polls and polling questions even after the tool is live.
  • Separates attendees from presenters (doesn't allow attendees to view the tool the same way, therefore not allowing them access to advancing the slides).
  • Doesn't require the need for presenters to "pass control" when advancing slides.
  • Good customer support.
  • Not a robust enough editing tool for recordings. Can be a very tedious and long process.
  • No social media integration.
  • Better phone sound quality.
  • Less instances of audio dropping or recordings not syncing up with original live webinar.
  • Event manager should stay on until end of webinar.

GlobalMeet is the only IT-approved and authorized web conferencing software at my organization. We use it for internal and external meetings. GlobalMeet helps us address connecting with our internal employees. We're a global company and in the headquarters office, less than one percent of all employees work here, so it's critical that we use this solution to be able to connect and share ideas and content anywhere and everywhere.
  • the connect-me function is outstanding! I never have to dial into a conference call.
  • It works as soon as it loads. As the company standard, we're not waiting to download plugins or anything else in order to get going.
  • The share a file option is great for collaboration
  • The option to take over screen sharing is kind of slow. That could be a bit quicker
  • The whiteboard could be a little nicer. Reminds me of Paint on old computers.
  • I wish it were easier to gather your recorded meetings. I don't like having to login and wait for a download.
It's really well-suited for internal and external meetings. I've never experienced a GlobalMeet with more than 100 people, so I'm not sure how the system would handle that large of a webcast. If you were to go with a live webcast, I would recommend using iMeet instead of GlobalMeet for confidence in the functionality and ease of use.

This product allows us to meet on a regular basis, share screens to do trainings and provides recordings of the meetings for those who could not attend.

We use GlobalMeet for meetings throughout the month. GlobalMeet is used throughout the whole company and is a very useful tool to the company. We use this product to have meetings, trainings and to share screens, which is very helpful. GlobalMeet helps address many problems and helps us find a solution because everyone can be on the meeting call to input their thoughts.
  • GlobalMeet is great at being able to have a meeting which everyone can attend since we all work outside of an office around the country.
  • This tool also is very useful since you can share your screen to let everyone see a presentation or how to do something etc.
  • There is also a chat option on the left hand side of the screen which is very useful to ask questions during a meeting or presentation.
GlobalMeet is well suited for the job that we use it for. It allows us to have meetings, share screens and also has a chat box that is very useful during meetings and presentations. I highly recommend GlobalMeet if you have people remotely located since it is so easy to use.
