Executive staff has struggled to embrace the technology. We have experienced multiple connectivity issues but are working through them. When it works its great but we are only at a 70% success rate and that is just not high enough for what we expect and need.

Evaluating Webex Meetings and Competitors

Webex has many issues working with third party products. Many California agencies have adopted Zoom and we are struggling to work effectively with the poor connectivity. Additionally our court system has adopted Zoom and we have experienced major issues when trying to appear in court digitally. When we are Webex to Webex, works great.

Webex Meetings Reliability

We have personal rooms, all the way up to large 600 person auditoriums, and several rooms in between. We have used the personnel boards, room kits, and a range of Webex boards (both stationary and mobile).
Webex is growing rapidly and that is great, but it is constantly breaking our configurations when updating. We do not have any control over the updates and we would like the opportunity to test the new features before they affect our environment. No one is perfect and not being able to test before production changes is very bad.
For the most part it works great, but there is problems with audio during power point presentations. Our executives get briefings and many times those briefings would include a short video presentation. The audio almost never works with this scenario. We have been working with Cisco Tech many times and they can't get it to work either.
