We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros

More Blackboard Collaborate Pros »

"The best feature is to be able to share the screen or just some application we want, even a video or audio, then request the remote control of the device with which they have connected.""The most valuable option is screen sharing.""They have a feature called Call Me in which I need to type in my phone number and I can get a conference room to call my number rather than needing to dial in every time. I think that's a quite good feature.""We can easily connect the device and create a room and then we can call many devices.""The most valuable aspect of this solution is that it is the easiest for participants to get connected to.""What we like about Webex is that it is a hosted solution, so there is no demand for us to invest in hardware, skill, or manpower to maintain our cloud meeting capability.""The ability to join by phone is the most valuable feature. I also think that it's much simpler to use and it's a Cisco product so I think it's the industry standard.""The most valuable feature is the ease of use."

Cons
"The system can overload when too many try logging in.""If there were maybe more tutorials outside of what I'm aware the university is suggesting, I would take more tutorials on effective ways to deliver content. I come from the industry and content was always needed when people that were observing were smart and involved and decision-makers instead of so passively just trying to pass the course. In my imagination, the tutorials would be a tool where the learners themselves can have much more hands-on learning during a Collaborate session."

"The modification of the email template is not very intuitive.""I would like to see the addition of new features that will add value to the product.""My company does a lot of international calls. For some countries they do not have their local number to call in, all they have is a 1-800 number which is quite hard to find. If they want to improve they should set up the local number to call in. What would be beneficial.""The UX should be more user-friendly. I know others don't like the UX because it's a little complicated to use.""I would like for them to include a collaboration tool so that you can directly do a video call or audio call to your colleagues or anyone in the office.""Better integration with other solutions would benefit Webex.""The connectivity can be improved because sometimes when we talk to clients that are overseas the connection is kind of poor. The video will be pixelated and we will need to turn off the video because the voice gets delayed.""We have had issues where some of the invited participants are not able to join the meeting."
