Overall Satisfaction

Adobe Connect is being used sporadically but globally throughout the organization. It is primarily used as a training delivery platform to supplement MS Lync. It addresses the need for a more robust set of features for delivering virtual training than are offered with Lync.
  • It works without any special install or plugin as all machines have flash already installed
  • The interface is intuitive
  • You can set up multiple layouts in advance, switch between them as needed, and they remain until you re-launch the software
  • You can run into system lag issues when multiple users are using the markup tools
  • Some file types must be converted before they can be uploaded for sharing and markup
  • It can be glitchy
  • It is easier for our Subject Matter Experts to use right out of the box
  • It has increased the recognition of how effetcive virtual training can be
It is the easiest to use of all the major players
It simply does what we need it to do
It is an excellent tool for both ad hoc meetings as well as virtual training sessions. But recording sessions for later playback is difficult and often requires either special teleconference setup, and/or an add-on from adobe that has an additional cost.

Product Usage

100 - All functions across the organization from HR/Training for virtual classroom delivery, to the home office and field for interactive meetings.
5 - There is a small technical team that support the installation and software and several others across the training group that support end users on how to use the tool and best practices
  • Interactive training
  • Video conferences
  • Meetings and webinars
  • End users share their desktop for software troubleshooting
  • We plan to integrate it more fully with our LMS

Evaluation and Selection

Yes - MS LiveMeeting as that was being decomissioned
  • Product Usability
  • Prior Experience with the Product
It is easy to use and requires no plugin for attendees.
I would get a better understanding of how to integrate our teleconference services to make it easier for us to record sessions as well as use the breakout room functionality.


Partner with IT, the learning group, and the phone conference people to ensure the right options are in place.
Change management was minimal
  • Who would support it?
  • Some areas of the firm had access issues


They take care of issue when they arise, better than some vendors, not as good as others.

No - We handle it internally
