"One of the most valuable features of WebEx is that it's very quick for ad hoc meetings, and I use it all day, every day, for internal chat with my team. It's just a good platform.""The installation is not difficult.""As compared to Zoom, I like its user interface more. It is much easier to use, and I also find it more stable.""Webex has frequent updates and it is very good.""We can do the global meeting with this solution.""The most valuable feature of Webex is ease to use.""You can configure whatever you want in great detail.""What I value most about Webex is its stability compared to other solutions."

More Cisco TelePresence Cons →

"The solution at times is not stable.""I think it's very inconvenient to have to enter my email address all the time just to be a visitor.""I would like it if Webex's mobile interface had all the same application integration as the desktop. Maybe the applications work on mobile as well, but we have not tried it yet.""Price is a little high.""Webex could add some integration with Microsoft Office or G-Suite.""The solution can improve by adding a smaller version for small business usage or for personal use. The solution is geared towards larger companies and enterprises.""Performance of this platform needs improvement. There was a stability issue, particularly glitches that kept it from running smoothly.""The solution could improve by having cross-platform compatibility. For example, if you wanted to have a call with someone with Microsoft Teams you could do it with Webex. Not everyone wants to use the same virtual meeting application."
