Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The key advantage of GoToMeeting is the ability to use it without installing anything.""Even for somebody who does not have a lot of experience, they can easily use it.""It's cost-effective.""GoToMeeting is very handy. It's good software. I would definitely recommend it.""The most valuable feature is the dial-in capability.""The most important feature for me was the iPhone app.""Screenshare is the most valuable feature as well as the number of meeting participants possible in a meeting. It also has good quality.""I like GoToMeeting because it is lighter than other solutions, such as Webex."

More GoToMeeting Pros »

"The cloud service and Skype are the most valuable features.""It is very easy to deploy.""Most of the work that seems not to work offline works perfectly with Microsoft Office 2013, like converting a Word document to a PDF file.""The functionality that is most valuable is the solution's ability to detect patient data in email attachments. Whenever a user sends out an email with patient data embedded in an attachment, it triggers an alert. The tool can detect a social security number and various other forms of patient identity. Emails are then automatically generated and sent.""It's very stable.""Many of the features in Office 365 are good, but I think Excel is a very good tool.""The most valuable feature is the integration with OneDrive, which has allowed us, a small business, easy access to a cloud environment, with no need to back up the data from five different computers.""The integration with other applications is pretty good."

Cons
"The enrolment for a non-IT user should be easier. It should be simplified for non-IT users.""It is not so stable.""The newer user interface takes a bit longer to get used to.""In addition to the features it already has, I think GoToMeeting should also have additional features that are not present at the moment.""Manageability needs to be improved.""GoToMeeting is too slow, which is why we no longer use it.""The sound quality is good but the video quality needs improvement.""The interface is a little outdated and could be better."

More GoToMeeting Cons »

"Using Office 365 is not that flexible on some mobile devices, like Android.""The feature to convert PDF file to a Word document needs improvement as well as the feature to save the file automatically when typing, without using the save command.""Improvements can be made to the products generic offering. It's not customized for health care. It doesn't understand the meaning of health care related concepts. Providing a greater degree of industry specificity would make the tool much more unique and valuable.""There are several additional features we would like to see, such as advanced features of SAN protection in Office 365. The main thing is the SAN protection; we would like to see a lot of advanced features added because we had a lot of spam attacks.""Using Visual Basic, I have had a lot of trouble with relative paths when programming for Excel, and sometimes it is very difficult to debug programs.""Integration between Outlook calendar and Google Calendar would be a good improvement since many of our team use Android phones and personal Gmail accounts as their main calendar application.""If two people update the same file, it causes issues.""I'm not sure if there are areas of improvement. For us, it's working quite well."

More Office 365 Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is a little expensive although now, with the competition from Zoom and other products, they have lowered their prices and it is better.""GoToMeeting is a little bit expensive compared to other products."

More GoToMeeting Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing is good for all the features that we receive, e.g., Skype for Business.""The pricing is not really high, but one can get the software with the license key for free.""The pricing is high and has actually caused us to limit the number of licenses we purchase due to budgeting.""I think that we pay $9.99 USD per user, monthly."
