More Adobe Connect Pros →

"Cisco is a pioneer in this particular technology. The features and technology have been adopted and they have been integrated with other solutions.""The solution makes it easy for us as a team to collaborate remotely.""The most valuable features are video conferencing, the integration with Outlook, and scheduling meetings.""We can easily connect the device and create a room and then we can call many devices.""What we like about Webex is that it is a hosted solution, so there is no demand for us to invest in hardware, skill, or manpower to maintain our cloud meeting capability.""What I value most about Webex is its stability compared to other solutions.""Doing presentations on the solution is very good. There isn't much they could do to improve this aspect. It's excellent.""Webex offers a wide range of useful features."

Cons
"Adobe's products are difficult to grasp.""Interface and layout options could be improved."

More Adobe Connect Cons →

"The base application uses a lot of resources. They could work on the performance of the application so that it's less heavy.""There are too many issues with getting people connected to meetings.""The interface could be a bit more user-friendly.""Zoom entered into the commercial space for end-users. It's more of a solution for single users for training classes or music centers and all that. Cisco is not in that space.""The collaborative features could improve in Webex. There should not be the typical one on one connection that we have had in the past.""It would be great if they had a directory that you could consult for the meeting dial-in numbers.""I would like to see additional online chat capabilities""When it was just two people trying to conference, it was easier. But now I see there are times when many people have to be on the call at the same time. That's definitely something that Webex can help with."
