Overall Satisfaction with Highfive

Highfive helps us to connect with a lot of our remote colleagues and provides face to face interaction and screen sharing capability. Our department is split across to offices one on each coast, and it's easy to start feeling disconnected/independent from each other. Highfive is used to help bridge that gap giving us the ability to easily have a joint team meeting between the two offices in our respective conference rooms. Its use of screen sharing helps us in being able to provide an easy way to quickly walk through Powerpoint presentations or even show the team how to accomplish a particular workflow.
  • Highfive is great for connecting with remote colleagues and providing face to face interaction and screen sharing capability. Perfect for companies with multiple offices, or employees out in the field.
  • Highfive is great for Rick-Rolling your co-workers in other rooms when they least expect it.
  • Getting Rick-Rolled by your co-workers...
  • Highfive can at times lag, or run slowly if you or one of the participants in the meeting has slow internet.
  • Setting up Highfive correctly can be a bit complicated for those who are tech challenged.
  • Highfive has helped our team to stay connected despite the large physical distance between our offices
  • Highfive has expedited our training and collaboration across the department
  • Highfive has improved the time spent in the meeting by providing easy ways for different attendees of meetings to drive the meeting from their personal computers.
Highfive is great for internal meetings or inviting an outside party to present to your team from a remote location. I've seen the program used very effectively to aid in training and collaboration.

It's not the best for large webinars where there could be a large number of individuals you don't know joining to listen/sit in on the content.
