  • I think it was very easy to join the conference. I think it's very intuitive. The connection quality was very good. I rarely had a bad connection. Usually it's when I have a very spotty internet, good capacity to lots of people get on.
  • I think I've run into issues where it needed to update the app right as I was connecting and that was delayed me a little bit. I think that's all that really comes to mind right now. Otherwise it's been a good experience.

  • Presentations - the actual presentations are always smooth.
  • Download of materials - the ability to download the presentations or other materials is always good.
  • It is a very plain UX so maybe improving on that would be a good thing.
  • The ability to manage your individual presence during the webinar would be good.

  • WebEx Event Center is tightly integrated with Outlook, Cisco Jabber chat client, and our LMS for seamless event creation and management.
  • WebEx Event Center allow the user to easily control the options for each event for a quality presentation and interaction with the audience.
  • WebEx Event Center supports several audio options including VOIP and allows us to record meetings.
  • WebEx Event Center recordings are stored in a proprietary file format that is not easily converted to modern video formats. Storage limits are costly.
  • WebEx Event Center requires a browser plugin to launch events, which can difficult when using a corporate managed device.
  • The WebEx Event Center portal could be more intuitive to navigate and use.

  • We can organize online meetings professionally
  • It is simple to use, and it helps to be very easy for the end user also
  • Webex Events doesn't let you down in your most important event, it does not crash
  • Sometimes we have to open the link twice to enter an event

  • Audio is very important in online meetings, so it should not drop when we face low internet speeds
