Overall Satisfaction with Whereby

We use Whereby to conduct videoconferences with few participants. It's a great tool. Very intuitive and very simple to use. Sometimes we do more than one complex videoconference simultaneously and Whereby helps a lot as a second option, especially with few participants. In these pandemic times, it is the tool I use most for family reunions.

Pros

  • Very easy to use.
  • Very easy to create an account.
  • It has the same basic features as other robust programs.

Cons

  • Allow more participants online in the videoconference.
  • Sometimes we do more than one videoconference simultaneously. Whereby helps a lot as a second option, especially with few participants.
  • When our main system failed, we used appear.in so that the meeting could be held.
It is a very simple tool. It can be accessed by all very fast. Sometimes we do more than one videoconference simultaneously and Whereby helps a lot as a second option, especially with few participants.

Did Whereby live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Whereby go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Whereby again?

No

It is well suited in videoconferences with few participants. It is less appropriate in videoconferences with more than four participants or webinars. In that case, I would recommend software with more functions. In our company, we use Whereby as a second option. We have a more robust software, but it does not allow simultaneous meetings. In that case, we use Whereby.

  • Communication
  • Option for videoconferencing

  • It would be great if there was an option to include a larger number of participants in a video conference.
  • The demands for videoconferencing meetings are growing a lot. Whereby has proved to be a great second option when our main system is in use.

Evaluating Whereby and Competitors

  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
Because it is completely free and of excellent quality, I have used Whereby in meetings with smaller groups, as an option to our main videoconferencing system. I already used the tool when it was called AppearIn.
It probably wouldn't change my assessment.

Whereby Implementation

After a recommendation from a partner, as the system is very easy to use, we simply start.
Change management was minimal - There was no implementation. After a recommendation from a partner, as the system is very easy to use, we simply start.

No. The free plan already serves us very well.
With the high demand for meetings, simultaneous meetings are often held and we cannot use our main videoconferencing system. In those moments we use Whereby.

Using Whereby

Very simple and intuitive.
