"Little difficult to use!"

What do you like best?

I like the availability of the program, and how it works

What do you dislike?

IT's not the easiest program to use, it's just a bit confusing.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely use it if you had a knowledgable IT staff. We only have one employee and it's not simple to figure out, so it's just not the best for us personally.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mostly media sharing, and it's convenient to be able to share so quickly.

"The very best in distributing video content"

What do you like best?

One of the best features is the minimum load on the network. This is very usefull in a large organisation where some branches does not have the broadest lines.

What do you dislike?

Whats not to like? Lower load on internal network. Better destribution of video content and better feature list compared to the old video platform

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Test it out, you will regret it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Kollective replaced an aging video platform that did not support HD and was out of support. Before implementation we tested load on different types of lines internally and found the results very satisfactory.

"Building Collaboration"

What do you like best?

What I like best about Kollective is the reductionof load on the network which allows locations without high capacity bandwidth to view content, then the Simplicity and ease of use of the product.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have the product integrate with video conferencing solutions such as WebEx or Skype via encrypted connections.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a very good solution if you have the IT staff and Audio Visual staff to run large events.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have executive townhalls that we want all countries / locations to experience real time as well and video on demand. Our previous solution did not support the amount of locations / users we needed to broadcast to.

"Kollective has worked as advertised"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of uploading videos and how non-disruptive the video deliveries are to the network.

What do you dislike?

Management of videos/channels can be difficult. it would be nice if alerts could be set or videos could be auto-deleted. Also, being able to run reports of what videos a specific user has uploaded would be nice.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can now distribute videos to the entire company and no longer have to hide them in SharePoint.

"Will be better once they ditch Flash"

What do you like best?

The peer-to-peer functionality is realy helpful to saving on Internet bandwidth for townhalls, etc.

What do you dislike?

Use of Flash...supposedly HTML5 support is on the way, but it needs to be here now. Flash is a security problem across the board, and to still be delivering new code based on it is getting more and more difficult.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Push hard for the HTML5 support!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Distributing large-scale town halls globally, including sites in remote/rural areas with poor bandwidth.
