Overall Satisfaction with GoTo Meeting

We use GoTo Meeting to facilitate our collaborative communications with our teams with various size companies. The key with GoTo is its flexibility, security great GUI, and ability GoTo Meeting’s mobile app outperforms Zoom’s in reliability, video
quality, and ease-of-use, according to user ratings and reviews on Google Play Store and App Store. and to share information as needed. What I also loved was the quality in which meetings were being recorded
In. They also provide a feature where you can save and share each
recording with others. Zoom uses 50% more bandwidth than GoTo Meeting – which can mean more lag, lower video quality, and more IT problems to deal with. Many organizations advise against Zoom due to its well-known security
and privacy issues. GoTo Meeting has a reputation for top-notch security
and privacy, with robust security features like risk-based
authentication and default AES-128 bit encrypted audio and video data.

  • Reasonable cost plans that fit our budget
  • Great for the business development strategies we use for both the Public and Private Sector consulting work we do.

Some security issues can be a real problem given the type of work we do and who we do it with. Lagging is a problem sometimes. Plan pricing is a bit much and could be better.

All in all, a great experience. GoTo Meeting is reliable, robust, and also
great for recording (it's opt-in) and saving time by providing a
link to share instead of having the same meeting all over like before. I have been using GoTo Meeting recently for my online/virtual business development
sessions with teaming partners globally. It is relatively inexpensive for
what I need it for and offers great features that cannot be found in
the more common free video conferencing applications. he same meeting all over like before.
