  • "The pricing of this solution is fine and I am satisfied with it."

  • "There are no licensing fees."
  • "The price of the license for the solution could be less expensive."
  • "We paid for our Webex license as a bundle."

    Top Answer: 
    The installation is not difficult.
    Top Answer: 
    My biggest issue with the solution involves its price, which I find to be prohibitive for small governments and modest-sized schools.
    Top Answer: 
    The collaborative features could improve in Webex. There should not be the typical one on one connection that we have had in the past.
