"Helpful but old-fashioned with no webcam capability."

What do you like best?

Offers a free plan which is very helpful to beginners and small enterprises, it's cheap because with only $19.95 per month you get the smallest package, it's a better tool for creating presentations with audio and share them directly to your audience through email or any other channels, the very unique feature I found interesting is the international dial in number they give you at an additional of around $4.5 per month.

What do you dislike?

Does not support video conferencing or video chat making it old version who in this century doesn't want the reality feel that video conferencing provide, some cheap competitors like Webx are offering video, I find the capacity of 50 seats capacity too small for $19.95 per month for an audio only conferencing tool. There are so many details to be entered by attendees like pins which discourage them from joining the meetings.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To remain competitive they will need to accommodate video conferencing. For startups StartMeeting is good because it comes with similar convenience as that of video conferencing but could be boring when you have to listen discussions of a conference like you are listening to a radio.

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

We wanted a software that could help us easily connect with teachers in all the school outlets and hold meetings and StartMeeting was our choice then because we were starting up and we needed to save some dollars. We were able to do all that and also share presentations with all the teachers and other stakeholders. It improved our communication and reduced the costs of holding meetings in every school

"Easy to Use Conference Call"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, easy to log on, easy to set up meetings through Microsoft office. we really like there is no charge by minute or charge to record or listen to recording.

What do you dislike?

I wish it was easier to see the chat log while hosting a call. Or for people to be able to raise hands if they have a question. It's hard to have a poll or have them answer questions when you can't see a chat log

Recommendations to others considering the product

it doesn't do breakout rooms or polls like Adobe does.

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

weekly conference calls with documents to share. easy to share presenter screen with others.

What Video Conferencing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"StartMeeting In Seconds"

What do you like best?

StartMeeting is an amazing web conferencing product that is made to easily connect to other over the web. The HD video and audio is probably our favorite thing about StartMeeting because we never run into issues with people not able to hear us during the meeting. The video is also top notch.

What do you dislike?

The only dislike I have ever had with it is that one meeting got disconnected due to server issues

Recommendations to others considering the product

We recommend this to anyone needing to do simple or advanced web conferencing

Web conference calls can be a pain to setup and stay connected to. StartMeeting makes all of that a thing of the past. The reliably of this product is probably the best part. When we hold our meeting is very important that we stay connected the entire time.

What do you dislike?

I really cant think of anything I dislike. Sometimes the meetings take an extra minute to setup but thats not really an issue

"Easy to Connect Globally, Perfect for Call Conferencing"

What do you like best?

Team huddles can be done easily in which the presenter can share the screen. Even if the team mate is in other country he can attend the meeting. Audio and video quality is appreciable.

What do you dislike?

They should work on the quality of calls which are getting recorded (In recorded calls the volume is less and quality is bit poor)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best solution for getting everyone connected globally. Even if some one misses the updates he/she can get it through call recording. Very easy to use and convenient to communicate

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

Saves huge amount of communication time, can easily and quickly take meeting and provide necessary updates

Just wish this product wasnt so much for the better version

"Startmeeting is a great meeting app"

What do you like best?

It is a very good conference solution, I was invited to a couple of meetings and I think it is a very good alternative to other vendors. Hold music and custom greetings are very nice features.

What do you dislike?

I think there should be only one enterprise plan, the differences between team and enterprise options are not that great.

What do you like best?

StartMeeting has worked wonders within our company because a lot of our employees work from home and it is easier to share information or host meetings. My favorite thing about StartMeeting is that there is no lag within the system. I like the screensharing and the video conferencing as well.

I haven't had any major issues. Sometimes with these hosting sites, there is a lag but I haven't had that issue with StartMeeting.

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

We are using StartMeeting to host weekly conference calls to update employees on updates and work.
