Overall Satisfaction with Lifesize Video Conferencing

As a consultant and solutions architect, it is my job to provide the best solutions possible to my client, then conduct the installation and be responsible for support. Lifesize makes my life easier, by making my clients' lives easier. It is such a simple, powerful, and cost effective solution, that the product practically sells itself. In fact, instead of going for the lowest cost option provided, like is common when presenting a lot of products, my clients tend to ask "how else can we use this" and the sky is really the limit. I also have it easy when it comes to support, as no infrastructure exists for me to provide support on, and I mostly just have to deal with training, which is minimal in its own right. As for as my clients, beyond the cost and ease of use benefits, my clients are able to become much more productive by having communication and conferencing abilities anywhere and everywhere, which means impromptu face-to-face meetings with other employees become very normal, regardless of where they are geographically.
  • Scales easily and cheaply with company growth
  • Provides high-quality full-HD video
  • Deploys very easily
  • Very easy to operate and support
  • Lifesize would be even better if machines could connect by a name rather than IP
  • Really, the only problem is that it works too well
  • I wouldn't mind seeing AWS integration
As a consulting firm, we work on the implementation side of things, which is a job Lifesize makes very easy.
  • Price
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
  • Positive Sales Experience with the Vendor
The ease of deployment and reliability is the most important factor normally.
Lifesize is well suited for pretty much any scenario, except when audio quality is of utmost importance.
