We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The SpeakerTrack feature is the most valuable feature."
"Video conferencing to hold virtual meetings helps to prevent employee displacement, where everyone can now enjoy the comfort of their own offices."
"The simplicity and ease of use are the most valuable features. It's so much easier and quicker than writing an email to someone and waiting for them to read it."
"The quality of the meetings is very good."
"The most valuable feature is stability."
"I use the chat feature to communicate with my staff, which is very helpful."
"The calling features are most valuable, especially now as we are working remotely."
"I like the fact that it opens up your video conferencing, and, in many cases, the audio at the same time."
"There are free versions of the solution available."
"I was in touch with one of our clients and they mentioned that they would like to have a holographic video conferencing. It would be great if that feature would be added."
"If one of the users has a poor internet connection, this failure will compromise the meeting, causing delays and distortions in the communications."
"The ease of configuration or the lack of decent tooling to pinpoint your problems is probably its biggest issue."
"We need a feature where you can virtually raise your hand to silently let the presenter know that you have a question."
"We have had trouble with scalability when trying to host large meetings."
"Going forward, I would like to see better call quality and reliability."
"There are issues with the bandwidth, particularly for external meetings,"
"The integration with Outlook could be improved."
"It would be ideal if the solution could make instant messages more permanent. Currently, if you close the conversation, you lose the instant messages that you shared during the meeting. If those could last beyond the meeting, that would be a great addition, due to the fact that frequently, people give each other key details, important information, or email addresses, etc., during the meeting. If you don't write it down during the meeting, after the meeting closes, it's gone forever. That can be quite frustrating."
"To realize value from the purchase of Skype Business, you need to take advantage of all the important functions of the program."
"The cost of Skype for Business is incorporated into our Office 365 licenses."
