There are some features that score above them but going for Webex was a management decision. The security feature of WebEx is what drove the decision. Most of the customers can join WebEx without any security concerns. Other applications have a lot of restrictions interns of usage at customers' premises as it is not allowed there.

I enjoy the fact that it is very simple and easy to use when joining a meeting. You can see all sides and chat boxes with everyone who may share comments. I liked that you could easily create web conferences that are user-friendly. The options are available to schedule an event and schedule multiple events.

Compared to other big-name video conferencing software, Webex Webinars stands out as it serves to cater to large events whereas the competition does not. Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Skype to name a few, have all garnered much attention due to the need for virtual meetings but none accomplish the task of facilitating large events as seamlessly as Webex Webinars. Unlike the competition which most likely could not handle events of such a large scale, Webex Webinars maintains reliable connection and meeting integrity, allowing users to focus on the experience at hand.

Webex Events is my choice to make events because it can afford more participants without losing audio and video quality. Webex Events is more professional, and with it, we can make high-level events like a Digital Summit. The users can use it without the need [for an] application to be installed and have an account.

We actually prefer MS teams as its now easier to chat; manage virtual backgrounds, better audio, and overall more features and tools. Given we actually use MS teams for daily meetings now, it led to us also using MS Events. As a result, we began to consolidate to only using MS teams for both daily meetings and MS events for larger meetings - in lieu of Webex Events.

When it comes to webinars and large audiences, Webex Events have far more options than other regular meeting platforms. There is a little advantage in sound quality and screen sharing, but it counts. other platforms like zoom have a nicer interface but lack the many "Webex Events" options and features

I would choose Webex Events to make an event because it can support more participants than Microsoft Teams. Webex Events can accept people with different email addresses not only local or organization/business emails. Webex Events has a higher quality audio and video connection and it can help have more professional meetings.

Webex Events is used internally by the company so we use it free without paying any fees, unlike ON24 we need to pay money for every webcast we need to do. Microsoft Teams has small issues in the connectivity when the audience is more than 100.

Honestly, Webex Events didn't stack up that well against Zoom. The backend event details section was not as robust, the interface is not very user-friendly and the audio/video quality was not as good. The primary reason I chose to use Webex Events was that we already had an enterprise license with Cisco Webex. Since using Webex Events, we've now shifted all of our ongoing, virtual experiences to utilize Zoom or Zoom Events.

Our company tried RingCentral before switching over to Webex Events. Both are very similar when it comes to providing a platform to allow people to communicate with one another. Overall, Webex provided us with a much simpler interface to navigate. Webex also presented us with close to no technical issues whereas RingCentral gave us constant issues during meetings and events.

Compared to Zoom, we prefer Cisco Webex Events for a number of reasons. Namely, for the sake of streamlining alongside other Cisco products that are heavily relied upon throughout the firm. While Zoom is very popular, Cisco Webex Events was preferred for security purposes, as well as for the additional functionalities compared to Zoom (again, integration with Webex Meetings and Teams, etc.)

Compared to ON24, Webex Events does lack quite a bit of functionality. Webex Events is a basic event broadcasting platform while the comparison is highly customizable. Depending on the needs, one is more suitable than the other.

We had to use something hosted externally and the Cisco Webex Events product just had the best host of features. Polling and online Q&A were important features. And the multimedia which of course Skype has. But we've had bandwidth problems in the past with Skype and it's probably more a factor of the internal network, not the product itself. Webex we don't get those robotic voices like we sometimes do on Skype. But again - I suspect that is network, not tool limitations.

The one limitation I see, and we get this with conference calls, and other forms of virtual collaboration tools [are] the participant limitation. Rarely do we need to go over 1,000 participants, but sometimes when we just want to disseminate information to multiple teams, the limitation is hard. We might have a live in-person event that we want to simulcast as a webinar and we will accept Q&A from the live event only. So it's important that we can have over 1,000 people.

  • Zoom
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.

Cisco is one of the true leaders. However several of the others have freemium products, which can distract.

In terms of using the platform, new setup is easy, but again that's multiple products versus one application. This is similar to Goto products and Zoom. If Cisco can eliminate the multiple application types or allow them all to interact and a customer/end-user can select the user interface they prefer, this will help remove or reduce confusion.

Honestly it was a bit easier to use, but also some of these other products had more features. So it was definitely something that we had to do a full analysis on to make sure we were making the right decision for the company. Because we decided that we didn't need some of the other features, and the cost saving was a big factor since we were already using the Webex meetings, Webex events was pretty much free.

Pricing is the main thing. The support we get from Cisco also matters for us. We need to resolve any problems immediately which Cisco teams do on time, and the customer service department is also really cool.

  • Zoom
Cisco Webex Events never adapted or innovated so that's why I switched us to Zoom. The price difference, customer service, and functionality are like night and day. The cloud recording and registration options are so much easier and intuitive compared to Cisco Webex Events. After being a customer of Cisco Webex Events for over 8 years, I thought they would care when I told them I wanted to cancel our account but they never did. My only regret is that I didn't leave for Zoom earlier.

Webex Events is significantly more expensive than Skype or Zoom for an enterprise license, so our nonprofit is currently only using Webex Events for webinars with external stakeholders or trainees. Skype is more integrated with the Microsoft suite of tools we use, but it suffers from a lot of connectivity and audio issues. Zoom has basically all of the features we need at a lower price point than Webex Events.

Webex serves as more of a live interaction, while Lessonly is for individual, self-lead learning. Webex allows you to see and respond in real-time. Lessonly is able to show you a recording, and you can review that response once the Lesson is complete. They're very different systems, both great in their own way and used for different purposes.

WebEx seems to be the first platform and most widely used. Supported by a quality brand (Cisco) known for its video conference and teleconference technology, WebEx continues to be a consistent, reliable, platform that has outlasted the others.

I use it because my company uses WebEx, however it isn't my most loved software available. It truly depends upon what you are endeavoring to get out of WebEx. In the event that you need a simple to use and easy to understand software, it is an awesome decision. I think it is awesome for large organizations, yet in the event that you are really hoping to stand out from the competition, you can find more customizable software.
