Pros and Cons

  • Easy to schedule meetings, webinar, and video conferencing around with other global offices. Normally we do team meeting and webinar to discuss about on-going projects and share presentation output.
  • GlobalMeet sends detailed report at the end of each meeting and the report can be used as reference for the minutes of meeting in future.
  • Features such as enabling recording and screen sharing enables easy for walk through presentation slides during the meeting.
  • Often times the speaker would not functions. I need exit the meeting and enter the meeting again.
  • Sometimes it is hard to mute the speaker as this will disable the voice from other user as well.
  • Sometimes the system hangs especially when dealing with overseas clients and team meeting.

Pros and Cons

  • Operator-assist.
  • Good quality audio.
  • Majority of toll-free global numbers available.
  • Sometimes calls disconnect.
  • Seamless integration with the web.
  • Audio/web conference recordings should be easier to do and more automatic - Very non-user friendly in an era where recordings are always needed.

GlobalMeet as a service

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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"

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • Great for sharing content online
  • Options to connect via online or through cellphone. The call me feature is great.
  • Ease of use. Very easy to use and to share.
  • It would be nice to have a gallery of recorded calls.
  • It would be nice to get a notice if the software needs to be updated. Getting a notice 5 minutes before a call that software needs to be updated is very frustrating.
  • Maybe a notification for when chats are happening.

Pros and Cons

  • With the updated version, it makes it easy for anyone to screen share during very helpful meetings. This is because a lot of my attendees are clinicians and not very familiar with global meet and they would get confused when you tried to promote them
  • The connect me feature is also a favorite of mine. I never manually dial in, I always have the meeting call me.
  • At one point, I was having major issues with the screenshare feature, to the point it was dropping 3-4 times a meeting. This was very challenging as the meetings had around 60 attendees. One of GlobalMeet's technicians worked with me and my technical department to get it working quickly. After that I no longer had any issues.
  • Right now, the main thing I would like to see is the message playing after connecting via phone be turned off or tell me how to turn it off.
  • Remove the option for the computer to call into the meeting. This always leads to challenges with sound during the meeting. People who do not readily join these meetings often choose this option.
  • no other recommendations, their recent upgrade dramatically improved the tool for me.

Pros and Cons

  • GlobalMeet Collaboration is cheap.
  • The screen share recordings are always high quality and ready quickly in an easy to use format.
  • Customer support is very quick to declare a problem resolved.
  • Customer Support needs to actually resolve issues before declaring them resolved and ignoring them if they even acknowledge your request for support.
  • Multiple times customer support's solution has been to have over 100 people on a nationwide call disconnect from the call and log back in. This is neither practical nor acceptable in the middle of a call.
  • Screen share randomly stops sharing for no reason and there is no way to know this unless someone on the other end says something. Everything on the presenter's screen shows as the share is continuing.
  • With the most recent upgrade, several key pieces of functionality were removed so a new, non-user friendly interface could be added. No longer are presenters allowed to share documents via GlobalMeet. Also no longer are presenters allowed to poll the audience. These are key pieces of functionality that were available in the previous version and are available in just about all of the competition. When asked about it support said they would try to bring it back in a future release, but isn't the new design pretty.

Pros and Cons

  • Had a local call-in number for people in different cities in MX. Unfortunately 1/2 of the time those numbers never worked.
  • When we started out with them we had a pay per use service that allowed us to work it into our budget as a smaller growing company. But they have since dropped that plan.
  • Expensive options compared to other products in the market.
  • They try to hide renewal options in a link that is not even part of the contract. Do not have cancellation terms without paying out the contract in full.
  • Better customer service as I never received return calls when issues arose.

Pros and Cons

  • When connecting through Internet Explorer, the product works really well and is easy to connect.
  • Transferring presenter permissions is very easy through Internet Explorer.
  • The desktop version is terrible. It disconnects frequently, and it is hard to make someone else the presenter.
  • When Sharing your screen when the meeting is online, the screen capture of your shared screen on your end is too small to read.

Pros and Cons

  • Easy to change the conference codes if someone leaves the company.
  • Host features for muting, unmuting, etc. are easy to use and work without flaw.
  • As the administrator, I get a lot of calls when there are issues with the system. However, it's mostly user error when we dig into it. That being said, I can't think of anything for improvement.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • Outlook toolbar... manage your account, create meetings, join meetings. All can be done simply and quickly within the toolbar.
  • Reports - after call reports can be downloaded providing detailed information of those attending and duration of attendance.
  • Fantastic support... whether you're in the middle of a call, or any other time. They are available by chat or direct call and provide quick and efficient support.
  • Reporting - I would like to have the capability of getting the attendance from my calls immediately. This way I can respond to them with follow-up information if needed.
  • Noisy callers during a call - Even though GlobalMeet highlights the person talking, or in some cases making background noise, I wish there was a better way sometimes to find out who that was. The majority of the time I have at least 50 callers calling in to a training call. And in the case where someone's phone is making unnecessary noise, I would like to be able to manually mute them. However, sometimes, the noise doesn't last long enough for me to scroll through the list of names/numbers to determine who it was.

Pros and Cons

  • Consistent dial-in and conference lines instead of these changing for each call you set up. Consistency makes the information easy to remember and quick to add to meeting invites.
  • Post-conference recap emails help you collect data on who attended, how long they were dialed-in, and their phone # in case you need to reach out to them again for follow-up.
  • Audio quality is excellent. We've never experienced connection issues or dropped calls like we have with other vendors.
  • There is a cost for the conferencing services unlike competitors like FreeConferenceCall.com or Skype which have free options. However, you pay for what you get and the audio/connection quality can and has been an issue for us with other vendors.
  • There are a lot of shortcuts that can be used on the line to mute/unmute lines, record the audio, request operator assistance, etc. However, these are difficult to memorize so we end up forgetting or relying on a print-out of the shortcuts that we keep near our desks. I wish there was an easier way to use these such as voice commands.
  • In the post-conference email recaps you get the phone numbers of those who dialed in. However, it can be difficult to know who these numbers belong to unless you remember the direct #s for the participants. I wish there was a way to save contact info for certain phone numbers within the system and let GlobalMeet add the names to the numbers for all future post-conference emails.
