Overall Satisfaction with Webex Events

We currently use Webex Events as an internal meeting platform as well as for some private/NDA webinars with partners. For internal meets, we use it primarily for quarterly company updates, whereas for private/NDA webinars, we use the platform to present information or content to partners in our ecosystem. Most recently, we have begun pivoting to MS Teams in an effort to consolidate meeting platforms, but it’s still a back-up option for us on the event any partners don’t use MS Teams/Events.

We actually prefer MS teams as its now easier to chat; manage virtual backgrounds, better audio, and overall more features and tools. Given we actually use MS teams for daily meetings now, it led to us also using MS Events. As a result, we began to consolidate to only using MS teams for both daily meetings and MS events for larger meetings - in lieu of Webex Events.

Overall very easy to use. Lacks some features of competitors but universally known and accepted making it a seamless tool for many people globally. As a result, it’s a great “back up” option for us, but our first choice for meetings is now MS teams - for both daily and larger company meetings.
I haven’t had to get support for this tool yet. So a 1 rating actually isn’t accurate; should be N/A, but I can’t enter that as an option.
In our company, Webex events was best suited for large scale company meetings or internal broadcasts. Externally, it was best suited when we hosted NDA or private, invite-only webinars. It wasn’t best suited for daily meetings as it lacked some of the functionally MS teams had. For example, it’s chat functionality, virtual/blur backgrounds, and ability to view many presenters at once, lacked compared to MS teams. As a result, while Webex Events is a great platform, we found ourselves using MS teams more for daily meetings - which then led to us using MS Events more as well - deprecating the need for Webex Events.
