Overall Satisfaction with Zoom

We use Zoom to support our remote real estate agents who are physically located several hours from our office. By using Zoom, we are able to host new employee onboarding meetings, and to provide virtual training on a regular basis for them.
  • Zoom is very easy to use to set up one-on-one meetings.
  • Zoom works well to provide training classes to multiple participants.
  • The integration with Google Calendar is easy to use and powerful.
  • I wish the Pro plan had a little more than 1GB of cloud data without having to do the $40/mo add-on for more storage.
  • We have saved money by not having to make as many physical trips to meet with remote employees.
  • We have been able to host additional virtual classes that we weren't previously able to.
Google Hangout is the only other "similar" service that I have used. I find Google Hangouts confusing for the other participants to use. Zoom is much simpler to set up and for the attendee to join.
Zoom is perfect for one-on-one video meetings, and works well for classes hosted virtually. When a real-estate agent joins our brokerage I can host an onboarding meeting to get them introduced and acquainted with our company and our technology. I have also used it from my computer, where I hosted a virtual training where we had more people than our training room could accommodate. I was able to teach a class with 60 people physically in attendance and another 20 or so virtually attending.
