Any recommendations for inexpensive conference calling and screen-sharing?
I've used UberConference, Google+ Hangouts, and Join.me, and all have their issues. UberConference's web UI is not good, it lacks flexibility for scheduling, and often has call quality issues. Hangouts is okay, but won't work for phone-only conferences. Join.me has a phone bridge, but requires that the host fire up the meeting on a computer.
Requirements would be:
- Dial-in number
- Web or mobile app for my international users
- Scheduling recurring meetings
- Relatively low cost for about 50 people
- Screen sharing is a big plus, but not a blocker
Notifications and automatic dialing out (like UberConference) would be a plus. So would Calendar integration. (We use Google Calendar right now.)
Give Any Meeting a try. It's free, unless you want to upgrade, which I've found no need to do.
for inexpensive conference calling and screen sharing, you can try vSee (www.vsee.com) for the free version.
Does not have dial-in-number. For this feature, there is no inexpensive service.
Really enjoy join.me for low cost conference calling along with screen sharing.
Just make sure to start the join.me app on any of the supported platforms to include dial-ins from voip.
I really like Team Viewer seems to work good and smooth with lots of features in the free version. Also it never fails irrespective of the environment and OS it runs on.
Ammyy is a great alternative as well http://www.ammyy.com/en/index.html
Many company professionals prefer VNC viewer because of its features and quick access.
For Free conferencing
Free conference call is one of the option https://www.freeconferencecall.com
Uberconference free package is a good option as well https://www.uberconference.com/pricing
i have tried most of them and am most happy with Google Places. I still use Gotomeeting because some people prefer it but probably 80% of my meetings are on Google.
I've sold almost a million dollars using gotomeeting webinars. They are who I recommend hands down!
No sure of capabilities but this service has worked well for me
I've successfully used StartMeeting which I believe meets all your requirements as well. Good luck!
Try Zoom. We have had great success with the application.
I'm not convince it has to be one application. The low or no cost conference call services work pretty well for voice. GoToMeeting and join.me work well for presentations and screen sharing. I haven't tried video conferencing with them.
FreeConference.com is great for conference calls, but I don't think they can do screenshare.
I use ClearSlide for demos and screenshare, but it might be too expensive if you are just starting out.
I think SKYPE might have some capability and GotoMeeting is another excellent platform to use.
I don't like Google Hang Out because Google wants to own data. If you do a web search on "free conference calling" you will find a couple of different offerings. They seem to work fine -- I've used them for the past two years.
joinme.com is a fine free websharing app. The free version doesn't permit you to switch control, but it allows up to ten participants, and it sets up with ZERO problems and very quickly.
Love https://Join.me/ easy to just start using...you don't have to sign up you can just use it even without creating an account and start sharing your screen/presentation.
http://www.freeconference.com/ for setup of calls...domestic are free and you can even setup for international conferences for a small price.
I put all my phone and conference line recommendations at www.ElevatingYourBusiness.com/favorites/
If you know of other resources I should add, LMK
I use FreeConferencing.com and it does everything on your list. See the site's FAQ give it a test drive.
Hope this helps.
Microsoft Office 365. Full UC and collaboration tools along with MS Office at a very reasonable price
GoToMeeting works well for screen sharing and videoconferencing. We use it every week for our Monday meetings integrating offices in different states.
