Overall Satisfaction with GlobalMeet Collaboration

The GlobalMeet software is typically used by colleagues who have a need to meet with a large number of people on a recorded call, or for ease of joining together multiple organizations on a teleconference. Typical uses are lunch and learn, presentations, collaborative information gathering, announcements, user story analysis, and workflow documentation.
  • Easy recording tools
  • Quickly access meeting information to copy and share
  • Hosted application
  • Recordings are of audio along with the shared content.
  • Quality of video could use some improvement
  • Addition of whiteboard functionality
  • Ability to see who was sent an invitation accepts and declines from a meeting dashboard
  • Ability to see an attendee list alongside the recording
  • Ability to generate a transcript
  • Bridging collaboration challenges between partnerships that aren't met via emails.
  • Time-savings with the ease of use
  • Cost savings with the blend of recording, presentation, and audio
  • Multiple options and applications for participants to join from
Definitely, because of the interface and thoughtful options presented. Tools like Skype have multiple sub-menus, layered permissions, and require a recording application to run. Skype also has challenges with participants using varied call-in methods.
I was not involved in the purchasing decision, but choose GlobalMeet over Skype in some situations since not all organizations permit their colleagues to join other Skype environments. WebEx is not widely deployed in the organization. I have just started using Teams, and I am not as familiar with using it yet. However, I have had success with joining other organizations that use Teams on a call. It is disappointing that functionality such as the whiteboard is not mutually available in those situations (yet).
GlobalMeet Collaboration is well suited for a large number of attendees, and the interface is very clean with an ease-of-use that is impressive. I enjoy not trying to dig through submenus to find settings, my meeting link/dial info, recordings, or my meetings.
I have had problems with some attendees not able to see shared content on their side but hear the audio. We have also had recorded calls that captured only the presented information, the host's audio, but none of the attendee audio.
