Overall Satisfaction with Highfive

HighFive is used across the organization, to allow us to have video conferences where we can easily share our screen and have the meeting room captured from a webcam.
  • It keeps things simple with its interface, so I usually know what to click.
  • It automates a lot of the process of calling in, which can be nice.
  • It's very laggy, often buffering during screen-share and video playback is dreadful.
  • Sometimes calls are dropped, which can be frustrating.
  • It's been great to have one universal platform for every employee to use to call in, even while Slack and Google Hangouts are options.
  • We can't rely on HighFive because of the poor quality, and since it's our default platform, it can be delay meetings with poor quality or cofusion as to which platform is best to use.
Slack is great for screen-sharing and calls - it's always smooth. However, it doesn't have the same integration with our meeting rooms, and TVs like HighFive does.
Highfive makes sense for wirelessly sharing a screen to a larger TV, and still showing it to remote users that call in. But if you're trying to do something too active, especially with video, you'll see it lag terribly.
