Webex Review

Very Good for HD Video conferencing

Valuable Features:

1. With WebEx, the presenter can show the audience what is on his screen. Files are shared in real time. 2. Audience interactive participation is encouraged and controlled. 3. It identifies who is speaking. 4. It is secure - supports SSL encryption.

Room for Improvement:

1. Video conferencing is not as fast as expected. 2. I don’t think WebEx can support more than 1000 participants.WebEx is one of the leading online conference tools. It is a collaborative tool that combines video, data and voice. It bridges the gap between physical locations. We have multiple branches and we have found that bringing people together becomes almost impossible. Thiat is the major reason why we decided to use WebEx. WebEx supports both computers and mobile phones. This means both computer (PCs, tablets, Macs) users and mobile phone users can easily participate in the conference. It also has free applications for ipad and iPhones. One thing we enjoyed most was the toll-free facility. You can easily share the desktop screen or files. Presenters can show his audience what is on his screen. Changing of conference host is quite easy.

Other Advice:

WebEx is relatively cheap and cost effective. With $49 per month, 25 people can conveniently enjoy the services. This price cannot be compared to the cost of bringing 25 people together in a physical location

You outlined perfectly some pros and cons that WebEx has. I would like to add features that helped me when using WebEx at my workplace.
Since it is software as a service, the user only needs to subscribe to the service and have Internet access and he is ready to go. With WebEx, no download is necessary, and the audience does not need to be a subscriber to watch and listen. One of the distinct pro of WebEx is that it successfully combines the online viewing portion with the ability to teleconference easily and be connected to the webinar via the access code. This lets the presenters know who is actually there during the presentation, without need for a time consuming roll call.
More features from WebEx include the ability to easily share documents, presentations, or applications. With a simple click, the user can allow someone else on the other side of the world the opportunity to present, either with their computer, or by taking remote control of his computer. Another pro of web conferencing with WebEx is the ability to access a recording of the meeting. Also, WebEx is fully scalable.
