This is very well designed software for remote meetings with audio, video, and screen sharing. I also love the companion product GoToWebinar that I’ve used for many webinars over the last several years.
GoToMeeting has gained such good adoption that it has integrations everywhere with tools like Google Calendar, Chrome, Zapier, and others. We used GoToMeeting for years for internal meetings, sales calls–basically any meeting with remote participants.
I’ve even used it to pull church members into my Sunday School class on weekends that are homebound because of illness. I like how you can create a persistent link that you can go to every time rather than having to set up a new link for every meeting.
Just be careful if you’re having back to back meetings with the same link–otherwise, you get the next audience showing up at the tail end of the current meeting. I solved that by creating two persistent links and alternating them when I have back to back meetings.
Price is right. When purchasing multiple licenses you can get the price down.
It’s also very stable in almost every environment including mobile meetings so you can participate in meetings on the go. It requires a simple install that I’ve never had anyone have a problem with.
It takes more bandwidth than competitors like Zoom.us for similar functionality. Chat is limited to chatting within the meeting rather than creating chat rooms inside your company for teams to collaborate on then hop on a remote meeting.
It’s meant to be used every time you want to meet rather than an ongoing collaboration tool all of the time. I think they could learn something from Zoom about this.
