Overall Satisfaction with Zoom Video Webinar

We use Zoom meetings for all individual, team, and company-wide meetings that require bringing together employees, customers, vendors, etc. in different locations. I use Zoom daily as one of the many remote employees. All employees across the various countries in which we operate use Zoom, it is the recommended form of communication by our employer for all calls when possible.
  • High-quality sound and video.
  • Great mobile app for dialing in for video and or audio calls as needed.
  • Chat feature for larger scale calls to help manage questions and reducing talking over each other.
  • Individuals cannot turn on the feature to mute audio or video upon meeting entry, only the meeting organizer can change these settings.
  • We have had issues with larger meetings in which some participants are unable to enter, no resolution for the issue right now.
  • The sound in rooms can sometimes default to a high volume regardless of the volume left from the previous call.
  • Definitely has saved on long distance and international calling charges we previously incurred.
  • Improved collaboration due to the more personal setting the video conferencing provides.
  • Ability to interview candidates in other locations and not flying into headquarters until later rounds of the interview process has saved the company on travel expenses.
We used BlueJeans for years and Zoom offered a better corporate pricing and support model in addition to addressing a few issues we had with BlueJeans in regards to the larger scale and private, confidential events that need to be held virtually. Overall, Zoom was able to fulfill the needs of a rapidly growing global corporation looking to keep employees all around the world as connected as possible.
It works well for medium to large companies that have employees distributed globally. We have noticed a significant reduction in long distance and international call expenses once the recommendation and enforcement to use Zoom for calls as often as possible went into effect. Overall, video meetings allow remote employees a more personal experience during conference calls than a traditional audio-only call would provide.
