We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Document loading and annotation."
"The solution allows me to connect and collaborate with my classes."
"One of the biggest features of Zoom is its stability."
"The interface makes it simple to use."
"Zoom is stable and easy to use."
"It allows for both support and communication at the same time."
"The most valuable feature is the remote desktop because sometimes we have to intervene and control the client's infrastructure."
"It is very quick to get a meeting started."
"Compared to any other platform, Zoom has been very stable for meetings and conference calls."
"The most valuable feature is video conferencing."
"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."
"In the future, I would like to see remote access control for other computers."
"Having easier access to recorded meetings, being able to download them fast, and playing them back would be helpful."
"When a lot of people join a meeting it is not possible to shrink the pictures and show them on a single screen."
"When sharing a screen, it's only dedicated to one particular window, not multiple windows"
"I would like to be able to have multiple users open and collaborate on a document at the same time."
"Technical support is in need of improvement."
"I would like to see support for transferring files."
"Zoom is an immature product that is not yet stable."
"There is a 40-minute time limit when you use the basic version, which is free."
"In the basic version, there is a 40-minute time limit on group meetings."
"Zoom is available with an open license that can support meetings of up to 40 minutes."
"The cost of Zoom has led me to use WeChat, instead."
"I have been using the free version of Zoom."
"The price is $149 USD yearly."
"We have an account but we are also using the free version."
"There is a free version available with time limits."
