Overall Satisfaction with Viber

Viber solves the issue of connectivity especially calling foreign counterparts at a lower charge. While using the Viber App one can call any foreign number thus reducing your phone charges. It also helps to contact your teams when traveling abroad. The biggest advantage that Viber has is their price for international calls. If you call a local phone in Morocco or Tajikistan or countries where internet connectivity isn't always ideal, the cents per minute spent is ideal. Basically, for 5 dollars you can have a 45min -1hr talk. It only adds up 10 fold if it's a mobile number. Other than that it's a VoIP app, so no need to pay for the rest of Viber calls.

Better pricing than Skype. Skype has a better platform. Skype really excels in terms of video conferencing capability, the quality of image and the platform is clearly better than Viber. Viber and Skype have been in the market for a while, yet no one relies on Viber for video conferencing. When you need to have HR interviews, for example, you would like to send someone an invite without the need for an install, I don't know that Viber has that. Obviously in terms of usability, there is always a pull effect as in any organization, we use/like this function a lot hence we chose this product as an overall solution.

Viber lacks the business capacity that Skype for Business has and it is honestly hard for me to see Viber as a competitor to Microsoft. We are talking about premium support and integration in a vital part of the organization across dozens of countries. I am not saying that Viber can't do it, but rather that Microsoft has acquired such an experience providing end to end business solution with a great reputation. One would not want to take risks with aspiring challengers, otherwise might as well use Messenger or Whatsapp. There has to be a Business approach, that is why having Skype and Skype for Business as a separate product for business needs is important for our day to day activities. Protecting the network and enhancing interconnectivity isn't something you will find Viber.
Well suited: You would like to call a foreign counterpart's number without spending a fortune.

Not well suited: local calls.
