Overall Satisfaction with GoToWebinar

GoToWebinar is being used by the consulting and training department of our company. It's used to host small virtual classroom and training sessions both internally and externally.

Especially with regards to disparate viewers and long-distance learning, the familiar interface and experience of GoToWebinar (from the same group that brought GoToMeeting), your webinar viewers can easily connect and dive into your content.
  • On-Demand
  • Scheduling
  • Registration
  • Learning Curve
  • Event analysis
  • Anonymous questions
  • Reduced training costs by 24% year over year through not flying as often.
  • Increased retention as people can reference back to training session recordings.
The event management is absolutely stellar, you can customize everything down to the tiniest detail and make it truly your custom experience, or you can pop on a template and get up a webinar in under 30 minutes. I'm hard-pressed to find another service that allows you that kind of flexibility.
Our firm generally recorded our webinars regardless, but now by having them stored automatically we can utilize them for our internal marketing prospects as well. Additionally, we have benefited from having a consistent recording and replay experience across the board regardless of location (Barcelona, New York, Istanbul are places we've recorded in the last year), while having the same level of engagement.
The interface is familiar if you've ever used GoToMeeting; and as such it's a breeze to get started with. I do think the customization is straight forward but does have it's own learning curve to know exactly what each parameter effects; but the templates available make just getting started or using it a cake walk. Not to mention how easy it is for webinar attendees to register through the registration, login, and attend.
GoToWebinar was easily the fastest to get started experience from day one. Utilizing the templates provided, and the customization available, GoToWebinar helped us host a 3 day event with dozens of presenters with less overall time dedicated to the technology, so our team could dedicate our time to making great content to share.
GoToWebinar is honestly the only webinar software I'd choose to use right now. It's got a bit of a learning curve to make everything flow seamlessly, but you can get up and running quickly, get your viewers registered and logged in through your custom registration; and host one time events, multi-day conferences with many different presenters (as we do for our onboarding), or recurring web series.
