We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"I can extract the activity and the attendance reports, along with every single question that was asked during the webinar, which is a feature that we highly value."
"The interface is browser-based and simple, which is an advantage over other solutions."
"All of their features are good. They are more or less equivalent to the competition. There's less disturbance, less jitter, the voice is always good even at a low bandwidth."
"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."
"Making calls and having meetings is easy."
"The sharing of cameras is limited to meeting organizers."
"GoToWebinar would be improved with the inclusion of support for video endpoints."
"Some of my friends also use GoToWebinar to collect clients for affiliate marketing. In those cases, they found some features were missing with respect to some of the competition. And the worst part is the price."
"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."
"The solution isn't connected to Microsoft Teams, and I feel like there is better communication on that particular solution. The group capabilities are a bit less than Teams."
