ClickMeeting is easy to use and offers high-quality video and audio streaming. The service is reliable, rarely dropping out or lagging during our testing experience.
This service also boasts one of the strongest slates of features out of all the video conference services we reviewed. Some of our favorites are in-meeting polls and surveys for the audience, built-in chat for groups or one-to-one private messaging, screen sharing for better delivery of presentations, a waiting room with an agenda so participants can get on the same page while they wait for the meeting to begin, and a whiteboard function for brainstorming and drawing. ClickMeeting also supports webinar recording and storage, as well as branded webinar rooms and customized invitations.
Starting at $25 per month, ClickMeeting's MyWebinars pricing plan includes two presenters and 25 attendees. Paying $30 per month increases attendees to 50, and $55 per month supports 100 attendees.
The next pricing tier, MyWebinars Pro, supports four presenters and 50 attendees for $35 per month. You can increase the number of attendees to 100 for $65 per month, or 500 attendees for $145 per month.
ClickMeeting also offers a custom Enterprise package starting at $165 per month, which supports audiences from 500 to 5,000 people. Pricing depends on your specific needs and expected webinar volume. The company offers a 30-day free trial that doesn't require a credit card or cancellation on your part, so you can safely take the software for a test spin without fear of being stuck into a subscription when the trial expires.
Ease of Use
ClickMeeting is extremely easy to navigate. Its straightforward dashboard makes it simple to launch or schedule meetings, create conference rooms, and share webinar links with meeting participants.
With such a long list of features, ClickMeeting has a lot to explore, but the no-obligation free trial allows you to explore the system and become well acquainted with everything it has to offer. ClickMeeting runs smoothly and reliably, never dropping service in our testing experience, and somehow it keeps its cornucopia of features simple to access for the end user.
On top of its base-level service packages, ClickMeeting offers optional add-ons that can augment your service for a higher rate. For example, if you need extra recording space but don't want to pay for the next tier subscription, you can simply buy more space from ClickMeeting to add to your original plan. Other add-ons include extra attendees and presenters, additional file storage, extra video streams, and the ability to conduct parallel sessions on the same account.
ClickMeeting maintains dozens of integrations with Adobe, Dropbox, Salesforce, Microsoft Office and other popular third-party applications. ClickMeeting also offers an open API that gives developers the access they need to build additional integrations to other applications or software that was developed in-house.
With ClickMeeting, there is no need have an additional conference calling service. In addition to having meeting participants connect via their computers, ClickMeeting allows participants the option to call in to every meeting. This allows you to turn any online meeting into a conference call. It also opens up your meeting to those who won’t be in front of their computer or tablet when the conference is scheduled for. When scheduling a meeting, participants are provided with a link to connect online, as well as phone number to connect via a telephone. Once in the meeting, those on the phone can participate just as someone who is connected with their computer can. If you are interested in having a separate conference call service strictly for phone meetings, you can find more information on these services on our conference call services best pick page.
Unfortunately, ClickMeeting doesn't maintain a phone-based customer support hotline, but support is available via email at email@example.com. The company also maintains a live chat channel that is available Monday through Friday, from 3 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET. In addition, there are video tutorials on the website that are very helpful in guiding users to troubleshoot their own problems.
