Overall Satisfaction with Lifesize Video Conferencing

You no longer have to travel for quarterly or monthly meetings, you can just start up your conference room and join the scheduled meetings. When I can’t make it to the office, I’m able to join by my iPhone or iPad. It’s been very convenient. The chat function is very nice we and are able to use it internally.
  • Simple installation.
  • Quality of camera.
  • Clean interface.
  • [Would like to have] auto zoom functionality for whomever is speaking.
  • Sometimes when starting up a video conference it can be a little slow.
  • No longer making the team/rooms 220.
  • Saving time by just jumping on a video conference call for meetings or customer calls without having to be there in person.
  • Chat feature.
  • Being able to connect to multiple different platforms (iPhone, Android, etc.).
I was very impressed with the simplicity of the onboarding process. The onboarding rep/csm was great too. They not only did a great job at helping us get started with the tool but also helped us out by doing a large training for our team. It’s been a while since I’ve had this simple of an implementation or onboarding process.
  • Zoom
Lifesize offers better video quality, better chat functionality, better implementation, better customer support, better pricing, and is all around simpler to use and implement. There were a number of reasons [we chose Lifesize]. Quite a few of them are listed above. TrustRadius also helped with getting actual feedback from customers.
Lifesize helps me attend meetings without physically being present. This is very convenient, and also makes it feel as if you were there in person. Also, the quality is far better than any other video solution I have tried, and the platform has surprising audio quality, even when using my laptop's built-in microphone.

I like that it has multiple applications for a variety of devices, such as iOS, Android, Windows, MacOS, web browsers, etc. Again, this just speaks to the program's ease-of-use and offers day-to-day usability.
