Zoom is a cloud-based solution. We're using the latest edition of this solution. We have 10 users of this platform in our company, but we're not planning to increase the number of users. It's enough. I do the deployment and maintenance of this solution myself. I don't need a technical team to do it. I can recommend Zoom to other people who may want to start using it. I'm giving Zoom a rating of nine out of ten.

I'm a partner of UiPath. I'm an implementer and I'm also a user of some of UiPath's products. I don't have hands-on experience with UiPath Process Mining, because here in Mexico, it is not the common. Not all companies have well-implemented ERP software such as SAP, Oracle, or Microsoft, so when you put or connect the process miner, you'll find nothing in the results. I know what a process miner is, but it's not very common here. I have here Automation Anywhere and Blue Prism, but all the robots work the same, and the only change is the flavor. All the robots have the same capacity and the same level of trustworthiness. The only difference between UiPath and the rest of the competitors is that UiPath's first robot: the Attended Robot, is cheaper than other robots. Its price is the only real difference in the market. I only specialize in RPA (robotic process automation). I also use other tools, e.g. web meeting solutions such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams. I have an account in Zoom. Zoom is deployed on-premises in our organization. It's on-premise: on every laptop and on every desktop. My usage of Zoom is low, e.g. I just use it to talk with two or three people on the other side of the cloud. I have not used it for other purposes. I know it has a webcast or video webinar feature, and it's not common for me to use that. Other users may see the difference with using Zoom vs another application and be able to mention valuable features of Zoom, but in my case, I'm unable to. I also don't have any idea on what could be improved in Zoom. I never had to call technical support. My partner recommended Zoom to me, but when you have to talk or connect with other people, you'll always say to connect through Zoom, Teams, Google Meet, or GoToMeeting. Zoom is recommended by everyone, though, and always comes out of everyone's mouth. Everybody knows Zoom. My overall rating for this product is an eight out of ten. For its cost, I'll rate it a ten. I haven't given much thought on how my rating for this solution could increase from an eight to a ten because Zoom's current use for me is just to connect with people and nothing more.

I think that if your main focus is on communication between team members, especially with people working from home, this is a simple solution. We need to recognize that not everyone is an IT person and we're working with people at all levels in the company, whether they're in the field, the warehouses, or in fabrication. For all of them this is, quite honestly, more user-friendly than WebEx or Teams will ever be. Based on our use cases, I rate this solution nine out of 10.

I work as a consultant for a private equity firm. I'm just a customer and an end-user. I'm up to date with the latest version at the moment. For the most part, the solution just works. However, when it doesn't work, it really doesn't work. A lot of people are finding success with Microsoft Teams. If a company already has Teams, if they're at a certain subscription level within Microsoft, they get Teams for free. If they're a company that has enough scale, then Teams will just come along with their subscription. Teams works well enough and has other factors and features from a collaboration standpoint. That makes it pretty compelling. That being said, what I'd recommend is if people are a Microsoft house and they have a certain level of their subscription before they invest in Zoom, see if they can't address their needs with Teams, otherwise, they might be spending money where they don't need to. I would rate the solution at a six out of ten.

I'm a customer and an end-user. I'm using the latest version of the product. I use it on mobile and on my laptop. I'd advise potential new users to compare the features of all the solutions that are actually in the market to see which would be the best fit for the company's purposes. It's a good idea, if it's possible, to run a POC to try and test all the features first. I'd rate the solution at a nine out of ten. It's a great solution, however, I'd really like to be able to share images via chat in Zoom.

I'm using Zoom on occasion. It depends on what the person I will have a conference with wants to use. I am flexible. I use various solutions. I pick the one that is better for the other side. I tend to use the most up-to-date version of the solution. I'd advise users to use the solution as it's a good product. In the beginning, it scared me off because as there were a lot of rumors about privacy. For a few months, I didn't use it until I knew that they had fixed that problem. Now security is fine. I'd rate the solution at a seven out of ten.

I rate Zoom nine out of 10. I say nine because all products have room for improvement. For instance, it would be a great idea if Zoom could provide APIs and a way to embed their products in third-party applications. Let's say I'm working in BPM or RPA tool and need to ask a question, so can I call someone, see their face, and have a little conversation without leaving the app. That would enhance the experience of using the BPM or RPA tool because you wouldn't have to leave your environment to collaborate with some others immediately. Zoom could be more like WhatsApp, where you can chat about something and get the answer from someone else. You can see all the conversations and search them. But you never see the same integration with a tool like Zoom, Skype, or any other tools in the market. And that would be terrific because it increases and enhances collaboration between people. And right now, because of the pandemic, we don't know when we'll be working together again at the same office. In some jobs, that could be indefinite. There's going to be a mix of people who like working from home or at the office, and they're going to need to interact, so you need a way for people to talk face to face. You need to see each other and feel a sense that you are close to that person. Even though you're not right there in front of the person, at least you have the chance to see them, not just some words written down in an instant messaging system.

I assume that the solution is cloud-based, although I cannot say for certain as I am just a user. The solution has so far been fine for me and has not presented too many issues. I do not know for certain how many users are using the solution in our organization, although I would estimate this figure to exceed 1,000, maybe reaching several thousand. I know there are at least a thousand. As we are a university, we have several thousand people, numbering more than 10,000 students, some of whom are making use of the solution. However, there are those who are not, so I cannot only guess at the number. At least a thousand seems reasonable. I would recommend the solution to others, although there is really no choice in its use, as this is done out of necessity. I rate Zoom between a six and seven out of ten.

We're just Zoom customers. We don't have any special business partnership with the company. I'm using the group application and I believe it's the latest version of the solution that I always access. I don't have it downloaded onto my PC. Due to COVID, I've had to organize sessions on my own. Before COVID, I was only invited to sessions. It's only been recently that I've had to get to know all the functionality of to solution and processes behind inviting other people to meetings, etc. I would advise other users to simply use the web application of the solution and to avoid downloading anything onto your desktop. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. I really like the solution. It has great useability.

I do use Zoom, but again, just as an ordinary consumer. I don't have any experience with the high end or professional version. Normally when I would use it, it would be because some associate or organization I was dealing with was using Zoom in order to reach out to people like me. I didn't even realize until a few months ago, that Zoom charged in order to get a version that was capable of handling more than a few users. I always wondered how they made money. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

We're a customer. We don't have a professional relationship with Zoom. The solution is great when you need to hold meetings virtually. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

We're just a customer. We don't have a professional relationship with Zoom. In terms of advice for implementing the solution, I would probably just say make sure that new users go into the settings within their account and see what they have turned on and off. For instance, I just told my CEO and a couple of the other executives about the option to annotate because I assumed that they knew that was possible. They didn't. There's also the capability of using a whiteboard. There are a bunch of other really great features that are available as well that are not obvious at first. Users need to just go in through their account settings and click on everything and set the account up in ways that are convenient for them depending on what they're trying to accomplish. It's strange that the majority of the cool features are by default disabled, so users have to go in and become familiar with them on the back end. Everyone needs to take the time to make sure you really play around with it, or go to the help center and watch some videos, and read some of the articles to see what's available. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

I think the main thing I would suggest is to get some kind of assurance that there won't be overload problems. I believe one of my clients has some kind of arrangement or package with them and we've never had a problem on any Zoom meeting with this client. I find that I can have more meetings and greater effect using Zoom. I've had many live meetings and conference calls over the years. It's difficult to connect with clients on a conference call. Zoom makes meetings as effective as a live meeting or close to it. I'd rate this solution an eight out of 10.

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is that it can be used for non-critical information. However, due to active security concerns, at least in the short-term, meetings that contain critical or private information should be conducted on another platform. In terms of how I would rate this product, I would score the quality of audio and video at about seven out of ten. Security-wise, however, I am worried about it. Overall, I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

My advice for anybody who is considering this solution is that if they are looking for a decent web conferencing system then it works well. However, for anything more than that, one should really look around. The product is positioned for conferencing as opposed to messaging. Overall, this is a good web conferencing solution but I would like to see messaging capability, localized numbers for India, and localized support as well. I also want to see better integration with business applications. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

It's important to create an awareness of the product and its uses to customers because most customers over here don't understand what Zoom is. This is not only for meetings but for our technical support. It saves us so much time not having to travel great distances. It's straightforward and very easy to implement. It doesn't need any dedicated process to install or to configure. All you need is just an email account or a Facebook account and you're good to go. I would rate this product a nine out of 10.

If you have a large audience then you must go with the Zoom Video Conferencing Solution. With this solution, you will have good picture quality without any distortion, and you will enjoy multiple features at a very cheap price.

Hi @Krista Thompson ​ - Yes, LucidSpark is a much more nimble and, in some ways, user-friendly tool than LucidChart. LucidSpark is designed to do a better job managing multiple users participating simultaneously and I've found its ease of use is really helpful when working with clients who likely don't have any previous experience.I use LucidChart for detailed process maps and flow charts (just me, working alone). I used LucidSpark as a virtual whiteboard for dynamic brainstorming (working collaboratively).I hope this helps!
