Clear calls, easy-to-use but still elaborate video conferencing functions and webinar tools. ReadyTalk is the catch-all for business conferencing needs. I use the teleconference function primarily but webinar functions are effective, current, and easy-to-use. Customer service is immaculate.

My last company used ReadyTalk as our conference calling software, and it was mostly an okay system. It was a little higher learning curve than other calling software I have used and the interface could use an update, but the customer support team was always great and willing to come out to the office and do training or update us on new features.

Simple to set up and easy to use. Too slow to load the media files. The most feature that I love when using this soft is the Outlook plug-in so that I never miss any invites. It’s also very easy to launch your meeting via the plug-in. Simple to set up. But it may be your nightmare if there are a lot of graphics and videos.

Clean interface For newbies it can be had to determine join in options. It was straight forward for users that have used similar conferencing tools. But for new users with the big green Call Me and Join meeting button it can be confusing if they do not have a 10-digit phone number and just a 4 digit extension in a conference room. The call in and join meeting links are hidden in comparison to the green Call Me and Join button.

I was handed ReadyTalk as someone else transitioned off our team and purchased it. I have been extremely disappointed with ReadyTalk compared to our old system, GoToWebinar. We use Hubspot and I spend 30 minutes or more setting up the integration and emails each time, where as with GotoWebinar, it was just a click of a button. They don’t allow for recurring meetings which is insane. We can’t use ReadyTalk for our weekly live trainings, so we have had to switch our entire training model. I am really disappointed with the user interface as well, it feels like it was written in a programming class in the 90s. We pay just as much for ReadyTalk as we did for GoToWebinar and GTW is a vastly superior product. I don’t like the operator assisted features, and I was told by the person who trained us that this is our only option if we have a lot of attendees. GTW was very simple, you just pick whether you want to dial in or use your computer audio. No attendees ever had any difficulty understanding, where as in ReadyTalk, we have lots of sound complaints. They also charge you if you leave recordings on their server and do not delete them. I find this pretty obnoxious. More customized registration options that allows for more branded look and feel More robust integration with hubspot, brings over a lot of information Ability to add in a quick survey post-webinar No webinar software is very good in my opinion, but steer clear of ReadyTalk. I would go for GTW even though they have their own quirks and issues.

Keeps a conference call efficient and organized! Maybe change the background music… One time my phone lost reception during a meeting I was leading and it ended the call with the rest of the team. That was great and we all knew to call back into the meeting.

ReadyTalk is easy to use which is very important when the individuals you want to reach have various technology comfort levels and are across the country. I also like the report they provide with information on who was on line and how long they were on the line.

Reliability, different features/functions I hadn’t seen in other platforms like ON24, GTM, BrightTalk, etc. Some missing features (minor not need-to-have) that I’ve had with another platform: being able to record slide by slide for pre-recording, and flexibility in terms of changing messaging/verbiage in automated emails through ReadyTalk. I requested a demo from ReadyTalk after having a bad experience with ON24 and they won my heart. Features & functionality fit my needs for the most part, and anything else I requested was either already in the roadmap, or passed along to the product team to consider/look into. I feel like customer support says a lot about a company and the customer support at ReadyTalk has been amazing from day 1. I love the platform and think ReadyTalk is heading in the right direction.

Slides and Application sharing We have had issues with calls dropping if I am using the desktop plugin I use the software daily for my primary job function. We love that it gives us the capability to load slides in addition to showing an application to the client. We are serving around 7k schools around the world. I would say it has been instrumental in allowing us to reduce our overall travel budget by givings us a virtual platform to walk a client/potential client through

I’ve had a good time using this to stay in touch with my remote workers. We use it daily and I can even share my desktop when trying to show staff different things on the computer that they are not understanding verbally.

Ease of Int’l calling Wish I could save a video recording of Picture in Picture respondents’ web cam (multiple at once if possible) AND the screen sharing. Speaking with respondents for interviews internationally can be challenging, with respondents missing the call, not being able to figure out how to call in, etc. With ReadyTalk, the appointment can be set up, save in your Outlook calendar, sent to clients and the respondent (who you call)), the call made, with an operator available to assist with international dialing, chat available for clients and also very easy recording and storage of recordings. Simple!
