Overall Satisfaction with GlobalMeet Webinar

GlobalMeet is used as a conferencing system for a global clinical trial to conduct international training webinars and has spread to the use of our entire department to conduct meetings worldwide thus limiting the need for travel.
  • GlobalMeet surpasses competitors by having the same login and password for all meetings, the room IDs do not change therefore it decreases confusion on meeting location and how to join a conference.
  • The polling feature is helpful for anonymous voting and increased participation.
  • The ability to "promote" other users to "drive" presentations is key for presentations with multiple presenters.
  • The chat feature and ability to mute all participants helps when there is a large audience.
  • Although I love the polling feature, there are a few kinks that could be worked out, as the dialogue box at times interferes with the presentation.
  • Have the "guest" and "host" bubbles bigger when logging in, sometimes guests get confused and log in as a host accidentally thinking they need a password to join.
  • A kink I've noticed lately, is not being able to upload presentations forcing me to use screenshare. I'm not sure if it's a naming convention or why this error occurs.
  • I have limited use in the webcam feature as when using it in the past there was a serious lag time making it difficult to communicate, but, it could've been my internet speed as well... I'll have to give it another shot.
  • Less need for travel.
  • Increased employee participation.
We used to use GoToMeeting and found GlobalMeet far surpassed my earlier experiences with web conferencing.
GlobalMeet surpasses my needs for international webinar meetings and I frequently recommend using it to colleagues seeking less travel.
