If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering GoToMeeting, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I use the solution every day, two or three times a day. We also use GoToWebinar as well, which is their webinar product. GTM has two versions available. One is called New GoToMeeting, and one is called Classic. I prefer Classic. When I'm doing PowerPoint and Google Docs, and when we're using faces and cameras, the new version looks a lot like Zoom. The others are where it's just a bunch of faces or people on their cameras. As an aside, when I use the new version, I have to use Windows 10. That's because my Windows 10 machine has a camera, and my Windows 7 machine does not have a camera. So that's a big distinction between the two versions for me. I'd advise new users that they need to figure out what it is that they're going to do with it. If they're looking for just talking heads and cameras, then they should use the new version. If they're doing more sharing of documents then they should use the Classic version. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
I would rate it a nine out of ten. I would like for them to incorporate a whiteboard feature. With Teams, while doing a presentation, and while discussing with clients, sometimes we do use that option. And on Teams I can see that this feature is there.
GoToMeeting does simple video conferencing and has meetings set in two or three conferencing groups. Those types of meetings go perfectly fine. But if somebody is planning to intensively use it daily and their user requirement is a lot more than what I've experienced, I would suggest do a trial for a month or so and make the most out of it in order to see what the traffic is like and how it behaves in the network. Check to see if you have any issues in the chat. I think it all depends on how stable your link is and how you traffic-shape your policies in your Firewall. I think that it also plays a major role in how other application works. I would rate GoToMeeting a seven out of ten. Not a ten because there is always room for improvement. In the next release, I would like for it to incorporate file transfers more efficiently from one computer to another when we covert things and send them out. I'm not sure if it's capable of that. I would like it to be able to do screen recording. You can do a voice recording of the presentation but not sure if could do a screen recording. It would be helpful during or when conducting a training.
In summary, I find that GoToMeeting is a good product. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
In general, I find GoToMeeting very simple and easy to use. If somebody is not satisfied with Zoom or Webex then I would recommend that they try this product. It is a good alternative. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
GoToMeeting is a nice program and they have a lot of features. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
I would rate it an eight out of ten. To make it a ten it should be able to have more participants. The advice I would give to someone considering this solution is to be sure that you have good network quality.
Overall, this solution is very good. Only the management and pricing are in need of improvement. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
I'd recommend it. I have no issues with the performance and no issues with the way it works. It is a better option from a security perspective with what's going on with Zoom. I would definitely recommend it. I would rate it an eight out of ten. There's always room for improvement.
GoToMeeting is very handy. It's good software. I would definitely recommend it. I would rate GoToMeeting an eight out of ten. Not a ten because there are still some features it should still have.
I would rate it a seven out of ten. I would recommend Zoom over GoToMeeting.
My advice to someone implementing this solution is to have a good camera and microphone. I would recommend Zoom as opposed to GoToMeeting. Zoom has a new feature that offers the ability to change the background. You can hide what's behind your chair. It's useful to have the ability to change the background of your video. Zoom has the ability to change your background to whatever you want, even the view, and in GoToMeeting, you don't have that option at all. It seems trivial but during meetings, some of my technicians don't want to turn on the camera because they don't want what's behind them to show. I would rate GoToMeeting an eight out of ten.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
