Overall Satisfaction with GoToWebinar

GoToWebinar is used by HR for announcements when they roll out new policies or need to engage the wider firm i.e quarterly CEO to connect where CEO shares his plan for the next quarter and engages the rest of the team via the platform. The other teams in the firm primarily use it to conduct training sessions internally as well with clients during key delivery phases like User Acceptance, System Integration as well as Key User Training.
  • Controlled trainings for the large groups.
  • Company wide interactive announcements.
  • Training sessions with clients.
  • Interface
  • Mobile App
  • Teams are able to conduct more effective trainings.
  • Clients don't need to install specialized software.
As mentioned earlier, it's a very reliable tool that can handle large online events of any and all natures. Whether it's internal training and quarterly meet with the CEO or the training sessions at your client, it can do all of that and in a very reliable fashion. The plugins it comes with are very good for productivity.
It lacks the modern shiny features that competitors like Microsoft Teams offer but what it lacks in this cosmetic stuff, it makes up by being a reliable webinar software. I especially love the fact that we don't have to have long calls with clients' IT teams to explain why they need to install additional software because the lightweight web version works just as well for the purpose.

GoToWebinar is a time-tested application to conduct large-scale discussions and training, and works really well not just for internal purposes, but also externally. Of all the other competitors, GoToWebinar is one of the oldest (not as much as Citrix) and most time tested. We routinely use it with our clients as well as to conduct training, because, unlike other alternatives, GoToWebinar doesn't need a full-fledged software install to attend the webinar and the light web version works just as well.
