Overall Satisfaction with Webex App

Jabber is helpful to connect me with my colleagues in different offices. It improves productivity by increasing communication speed and reducing email volume.
  • Emojis :)
  • Groups to create a “chat room” with a group of colleagues
  • Quick communication
  • On-the-fly group messaging (vs establishing a group)
  • Default video for computer calls (should be off on default)
  • Screen sharing is glitchy
  • Productivity improvement
  • Reduced server space (fewer emails)
  • More personal connections
  • Google Hangouts
Group chat is much easier in hangouts but security features led my org to pick jabber.

Do you think Webex App delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Webex App's feature set?


Did Webex App live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Webex App go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Webex App again?


Jabber is quite user-friendly, though automatic start-up has been difficult to navigate (we must log in to a VPN first, so auto-start is never the best option)
Best suited: quick communication with colleagues, screen share, remote calling/telecommuting, video conference. A good replacement for 1-2 sentence emails or stopping by a colleague’s office when that is not possible. Also good when on a call together and need to have a sidebar conversation. Good to leave a quick note when a colleague is away from their desk
Worst suited: group conversations, long communications, sharing documents or attachments. Does not replace meetings or in-person conversations completely.
