- Easy to get potential clients on the demonstration from their site.
- User-friendly platform.
- Customized emails to send over to people with calendar invites attached as well.
- Lag time - I understand it depends on the internet access by both parties but either way can be extremely frustrating.
- Recording a demonstration could be easier.
- Join.me offers several dial-in locations.
- Join.me screen sharing allows you to transfer the presenter role.
- Join.me is easy to schedule and the Chrome extension is great if you are the only one using the account.
- The only way to pass the presenter role is for all parties to have the join.me app downloaded. That isn't always very realistic.
- I have had several calls where the sound quality is not very good and the call will randomly end.
- If you have several people logging into the same account (which you probably shouldn't) then the Chrome extension is a terrible idea. I have experienced double-booked meetings before.
The business problems it addresses is clarity in meetings and training because we all get the same information at the same time.
- The Join.me app is user-friendly.
- The Join.me app is intuitive, an example is navigating from assigning someone to take command of the screen is just a click and to retrieve control back is also just a click.
- The connectivity and setting up meetings is practically done for you...copy and paste the link in an email for the fellow participants to join and connect.
- I don't have any input on this. I've been happy with everything thus far.
- Screen sharing.
- Global toll-free telephony.
- Product integration.
- There are no shortcomings in this product, at least for our team. It's a perfect fit. I don't have to think about it. It's a perfect fit. I don't have to think about it.
- Most importantly, it's very quick and easy for companies to join. You have a custom URL and you just tell them to go there and follow the directions.
- They do NOT have to download a plugin to see your screen, which makes things a LOT easier. They only have to download the plugin if you want to have them share their screen or give them mouse control.
- It loads pretty quickly and has a lot of local numbers, typically the directions are clear and clients don't have trouble joining.
- Occasionally I have clients who have difficulty joining, I think it may be due to a technical glitch so I'm looking into that.
- As with any screen sharing, sometimes the image lags a lot if either party has a slow internet connection.
- They offer a free trial version for you to try before you even decide if it's right for you. But they also have 3 great packages to believe in. We are using the Pro Version, which is right in the middle.
- You can host video conferences and record them for team members that couldn't make the meeting.
- We can instantly have reports converted to Excel.
- Honestly, There is nothing I can say negative at the moment. I actually forgot to mention they also have an option for Toll-free calling. You would have to have the OpenVoice before you use it to connect, but it is available if needed.
Since using Join.me, we even have convenient, in-app reminders of scheduled upcoming meetings. I would recommend this to small businesses, which is what we are, but it is also perfect for larger groups.
- Ability to call in via phone or VOIP
- Ability to share screens
- Ability to record meetings
- Ability to include international dial-in numbers
- Join.me could add additional countries of coverage for their local dial-in numbers (like Egypt, UAE, and other middle-eastern countries).
- Join.me could create the ability to export the attendee list in 1 click.
- Helpful in introducing a new program or spreadsheet.
- We can show the implementation and use of new and existing programs.
- Allows ease of communication with off-site and satellite offices.
- I have not really noticed any specific issues with using Join.me thus far.
- I have had some sound quality issues on a couple of occasions, but I cannot directly attribute that to the Join.me software.
- Ease of use - the Join.me product and platform are very easy to use, even if it is someone's first time.
- Trial option - the company offers a free trial option, which is great if a company isn't sure how it would work for them - they can test it out without making an investment.
- Help section - the company's help section is really useful and it's fairly easy to search if you need help figuring something out.
- No password protection - you can't protect a meeting with a password that you only share with intended participants. Instead, participants have to "knock" to be let in - but that means someone has to be on the lookout for those requests.
- Limits to the whiteboard - the whiteboard functionality is limited to tablets, which is a bummer if you have many participants on their work desktop computers or laptops.
- Screen sharing - sometimes it won't work on particular browsers.
- It's easy to find the link to join and number to dial. Unlike some screen shares that are impossible to get in to.
- I have a lot of issues when people join. Sometimes it takes 15 min for people to get in and that takes up a lot of time in our meetings.
- Users don't need to install software to join a meeting. This is a tremendous asset. We are able to just send a link to a customer and they can click to join.
- Join.me can record a video of the meeting.
- Excellent control over the group. You mute individuals or the whole group and share the presenter role quickly.
- Lags *IF* the guest has a poor internet connection and you are doing audio + screen share through the computer. If you do audio via the phone then it's not an issue. By "lag" I meant that when you show a slide, the guest may be seeing the prior slide for a few seconds.
- Lags when you have a large audience. Once I ran a webinar with 200+ people join and once I got past 75 guests people were not able to connect to me anymore.
- No installation requirements
- Multi platform support
- Low bandwidth requirements
- Ease of use
- Good support
- Sometimes configuring custom setups has been troublesome on users' machines (weird mic setups etc)
- Screen sharing capabilities.
- More browser connection options.
- Reliable technology (100pct up time for me, always).
- It never drops calls.
- It's easy to use.
- Ease of use for the mobile app is the only thing I could think of that could be improved a bit in terms of stability, but it’s more the phone service and internet connection that impacts this than the application issues themselves.
- It reduces our license fee.
- Ease of use
- Lightweight interface
- Attractive Pricing Options
- Would love to see a web based client
- Slower to adopt features compared to competitors (it didn't have video for a long time)
- Better call quality
- Quick launch - start your meeting with your custom URL at a moments notice
- Good audio - join using your computer audio to be 'in the meeting' quickly with clear tones
- Quick join - join.me saves your most frequently joined meetings in the modal, so you can type in a colleagues name to jump on their meeting right away.
- First-time download - sometimes our customers have trouble joining that first meeting and since I can't see what they see, I don't know how to help.
- Join.me has a lot of personalization touches I haven't seen in a lot of other audio conferencing software. It allows you to have a personalized background for viewers to see while they are waiting for you to share your screen which I like.
- Join.me makes it easy to add international dial-in numbers which has come in handy when working on a global level.
- Join.me's audio quality is pretty good- it occasionally will drop people from a call, but I don't think this happens any more often than any other conferencing software.
- We use Join.me in conjunction with DocSend- this integration is very poor and only works 2/3rds of the time. When I am using DocSend and I push the button to switch to the Join.me screenshare the load time is very slow and it's always and awkward waiting time on a call for the screen to switch.
- Oftentimes when I switch my screen the attendee says all they see is the loading screen, not what I'm sharing. We then have to spend 5 min troubleshooting and trying to get it to work.
- The audio conferencing will occasionally drop people randomly, though I wouldn't say this happens any more so than any other conferencing vendor.
