"Good software for scheduling weekly online meeting"

What do you like best?

The best thing I like about GlobalMeet is the ability to share a link that can be shared with participants for joining.

What do you dislike?

There is an audio notification "You are on Mute/ You are no longer on Mute" when you click on Mute/Unmute button during an active call. There is no way disable this notification sound. This when occurs blocks the sound of the actual conversation. This feature is not at all useful and should be removed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have an .exe file for windows OS which create desktop shortcut automatically. Also remove the audio notification for going Mute/Unmute.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have scheduled weekly meeting using GlobalMeet with our team members who are at a remote location. GlobalMeet has been really useful for sharing screen and communication work progress on weekly basis.

"Caused an internal uproar"

What do you like best?

The best feature about GlobalMeet is that it can dial an extension to call you into a meeting and it has a pretty straightforward Outlook integration. But otherwise, it caused a near-universal uproar when we switched from GoToMeeting to GlobalMeet.

What do you dislike?

Across the board, our users struggled with connectivity issues--frequently dropping from meetings or failing to connect. Screensharing became a nightmare because it requires you to download and install local agents and extensions and then keep them up to date on top of that. I've also found that GlobalMeet has more lag than other meeting apps I've used--so we frequently end up with people talking over or awkward pauses. The mobile app is absolutely broken--for some reason there are 3 different versions? Hosting a meeting from the iPhone is a real struggle.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's not a terrible meeting application as long as you don't need to screen share or carry out a natural, organic conversation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Honestly, I think we created more business problems than we solved. We did at least realize across our internal departments that we all had something in common to complain about, which built some camaraderie at least.

What Video Conferencing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Mostly very useful and intuitive ..."

What do you like best?

I like best that I can delegate my meeting to my employees so that we can facilitate each other's meetings when sick and on vacation without sending new invites out to all participants. Being able to tie the web with your phone for better quality. Utilizing mobile devices.

What do you dislike?

I was so happy to see the addition of webcams where we see everyone but what I really want is to see everyone visually and to be able to share a screen from a document at the same time. Also, this feature isn't in the mobile devices yet. We do have times where the quality is quite bad. This is fairly low percentage over the year. Where people are unable to join and unable to hear people well who have.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really like that this product can be used by Mac; Windows and mobile devices making it very portable and easy to implement. The quality of screen share is great. The ability to chat during the call is easy as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Virtual Teams facilitating meetings, collaboration across long distances. Being able to see the same page easily know if someone is engaged.

"Not so great for casual use - delayed joining times and software requirements"

What do you like best?

Simple to use once it's set up, but requires more to get it set up vs it's rivals. It's good if you only want one person to have control and you're not bothered about video of presenters/participants showing

What do you dislike?

When trying to bring others together for a meeting outside your org, it always seems to require software to be installed. Also, it's not as good as competitor products when it comes to collaborative screen sharing

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider carefully how important the following are to your organization:

1) Having participants collaborate / share their screens and/or have the ability to take control

2) How much software installation may delay joining times

3) The default to no webcam

We used GlobalMeet in the past as our primary web conference tool, but the cost and functionality were superseded by another company

"Global Meet has some flaws."

What do you like best?

It is easy to attend a meeting using this application - invites and sign in are easy. I also like that you can use PP, slides, photos, and that you can speak as well as use text to communicate.

What do you dislike?

The main issue I have with Global Meet is that even when the meeting is muted by the facilitator sounds and conversations from participants still come through. It is confusing to me why this feature does not work. The muted announcement even comes across the features but it never seems to actually mute. And although participants are asked to mute their phones this often is not successful, especially with a large group meeting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Webinars using GlobalMeet are great! It is a great way to bring together a large group of people to receive information in multiple forms (document share, PP presentation, notes, and text and voice interaction).

"GlobalMeet provides consistently clear and professional conferencing"

What do you like best?

Consistent dial-in and conference lines instead of these changing for each call you set up. Consistency makes the information easy to remember and quick to add to meeting invites. Post-conference recap emails help you collect data on who attended, how long they were dialed-in, and their phone # in case you need to reach out to them again for follow-up. Audio quality is excellent.

What do you dislike?

There is a cost for the conferencing services unlike competitors like Join.me, Skype, or FreeConferenceCall.com which have free options. However, you pay for what you get and the audio/connection quality can and has been an issue for us with other vendors. Connection speeds can be an issue at times but I can't confirm whether those are issues with GlobalMeet or our own connection through an external ISP.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reliable conferencing with excellent audio/video quality and without the need to install any special software. We've never run into any need to "troubleshoot" with a user why their connection was bad or why they couldn't get setup using the software. It's always worked intuitively for new attendees. This has helped us run efficient meetings that are on-time.

"Fantastic product! highly recommended"

What do you like best?

I love everything about this product. I am able to schedule meetings, send out updates to meetings, one-click login for guests, no plug-in needed to join the meeting and ability to record webinars. I highly recommend this web sharing program.

What do you dislike?

the only thing that I wish was easier is that when the presenter is presenting their screen they are not able to view the attendee list. I wish this was one thing that could change.

"Above average platform that works through kinks"

What do you like best?

I love the Outlook integration as well as the "call me feature" the most. I like that there is a separate call in number when I only need a conference call, but that it is mostly a webinar platform.

What do you dislike?

I tend to have a lot of technical difficulties and have issues with users accessing. It seems easy, but when a new user accesses a meeting it asks them to download the "app", which isn't needed. Also, when a new user is set up with an account, the "welcome email" doesn't properly explain what they need to do. This is really small, but when you mute people on the lines you hear "this user is now muted", and sometimes miss important parts of the call. It's more annoying that anything else.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I love the ability to schedule meetings in advance, or do them on the fly.

"Easy to use"

What do you like best?

From creating a calendar appointment using the GlobalMeet toolbar in Outlook, to starting your meeting from the Outlook toolbar, to managing your meeting using PGI Global Meet... It doesn't get much easier. Sharing your screen, muting noisy callers, tracking who's joined your call... all are simply done within the GlobalMeet application.

What do you dislike?

Still an issue as of 7/13/2016...

There have been two things I've disliked about the program... First is the ability to see whose phone needs to be muted. Granted the caller does get highlighted, but if the noise is brief, it's hard to scroll down quick enough to get to them. I wish when there was someone speaking or making some other noise, that their name/number would pop up to the top of the list and remain there for a short time.

Second, is the reporting. The downloads of the files require too much editing to be able to work with them and merge them in to other excel spreadsheets. I'm still trying to get many who call in to web training to use the feature where the program calls them... but many don't, and the reports show them as two callers/attendees. Not fun to try to sort through.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Test it out. It really is simple to use and dependable

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use PGI as a source for doing audio and web training for our sales field. The group likes it when it's interactive and they can see the navigation in real time.

"Seemless Billing, great quality."

What do you like best?

Good old-fashioned call card or advanced new technology. For my office it is a good fit as we have many who do not understand the newest tech and would rather just do a dial in the old way. This service provided both options.

What do you dislike?

This is not a jab a Global Meet but rather the office I work with, we were always just using the Pay as you go feature which meet our needs but I think that the unlimited web would work better for us on a whole. Because they do not want to commit to the Unlimited Web, our bills for Pay as you go sometimes can be upwards of $200 a month.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have an office that has a mix of users with different technology comfort levels, I would highly recommend Global Meet, or if you use any of PGi services. They are great to deal with and can be very helpful and billing is breeze. I only wish I had been a user of the unlimited web and not the Pay as you Go. I think we would have benefited more from that.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I actually prefer global meet as it was easy for the entire office to use. We have since switched to Skype and with the difference in technology users in our office....well....it can create alot of confusion and unease with using. Global Meet provided no confusion to the array in our office.

"Great tool for collaboration and troubleshooting. "

What do you like best?

I like that it's integrated with outlook. I can easily schedule meetings with the globalmeet toolbar. I like that you can do webcam, screen sharing, or just audio/calls with it.

What do you dislike?

I do not have any negative feedback or faults for globalmeet at the moment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I would say it helps bridge the distance. Instead of taking the time to go over to another coworker that is having problem on the other floor or building, we can work together through screen sharing. And so this makes our work more efficient.

"My Globalmeet experience"

What do you like best?

Integration with Outlook for scheduling and auto populating invites with dialling details for participants though sadly not well supported on Outlook 2016 from office 365.

Scheduling and usage on demand.

Ability to split audio and web conferences to save costs but easy to combine the two also.

Ability to use the platform on a mobile phone

Ability to seamlessly transfer one's usage whilst on a live meeting over to a computer

What do you dislike?

Sadly GlobalMeet platform is not very stable. On audio conferences myself and participants get kicked out frequently. On web conferences I also get kicked out very frequently which means that if I'm the host of one else gets kicked out also and so the ability to use the option to close the meeting when the host leaves is useless.

I switched from using Globalmeet VoIP to standard Skype VoIP and since I have done that I have not had a single audio called dropping. Whereas using Globalmeet VoIP I would get kicked at least twice on a call lasting half an hour every time.

This really spoils what is otherwise a very good alternative to Cisco's WebEx platform

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have a rock solid Internet pipe as this software is woefully unforgiving to any minor fluctuation Internet bandwidth usually disconnecting the participant entirely the drop of a hat as opposed to perhaps not being held here for a few seconds and then Internet bandwidth coming back up.

I know that many of my colleagues struggled to use this on a Mac so better to use a PC. Usage on an android phone is okay to but again requires a solid Internet connection.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Collaboration with colleagues by phone or web conferences.

Presenting ideas and status to management and clients.

"Global meet for satellite meetings"

What do you like best?

It's a pretty simple and seamless process. It's easy to access the service once you have a code, and then you can decide whether to conduct the meeting over the phone or using the web tools as well. We have found the sign-on process to be ultimately seamless.

What do you dislike?

I can't think of anything except that the price may be prohibitive for some organizations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a viable tool if your institution does not have a proprietary virtual meeting software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's easy to get our group together for a meeting. We have people working in multiple states and outside of the US, and we haven't had a problem connecting.

"Easy web conferencing tool"

What do you like best?

My absolute favorite feature is the connect-me option. I love not having to dial into a conference! Every time someone sends me a different conference option, I sigh because I know it's not going to be as easy. It also loads very quickly for our internal meetings because it's the company standard. I like having my own standard URL and consistent phone line. I finally memorized my passcode!

What do you dislike?

The screenshare swap sometimes takes awhile and has a bit of a lag. I'm not sure if that's the software or our network, but working with global teams, it's noticeable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My global company has offices all over and the headquarters office, where I work, is quite small. I am always on conference calls. It's nice to use a solution that we are confident in instead of having to wait for something else to load (or download a plugin or someone's browser crashes...etc.)

"Mediocre at best"

What do you like best?

I like the ability to take meetings on my iphone. The Iphone App is a lifesaver.

What do you dislike?

Feels cumbersome. The UX needs to be improved. Customers don't seem to be as accepting of GlobalMeet. The settings are tedious to configure. Allowing me to set the number of countries while useful is troublesome to do. Why 10 digit passcodes?? Especially when trying to Join the meeting and I have to key in the ridiculously long passcodes. Adding spaces between the numbers will help.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I wish i could say I love it. But I can't. In considering the various solutions, I've seen my colleagues move away from GlobalMeet to other solutions like Skype and webex. It's useful for colleagues who are on the road but Webex offers the same convenience now.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ability to set up meetings with customers across the globe. On the occasion that I've managed to get a call with my customers. The calls have gone off without a hitch. Wish they had a web interface just like webex. so customers do not have to explicitly install the globalmeet app.

"Global Meet helps our organization with both internal and external challenges"

What do you like best?

The high quality audio and video. It's very reliable. I also like the recordings, the ability to record a meeting or webinar. We find that our users find it very easy to link to webinars they missed with the recordings, which are high quality, and I understand that you can now edit these!

What do you dislike?

I dislike that recordings cannot be saved for longer than a month, unless you download them. This has only been a very occasional issue for us though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check out how easily you can import PowerPoint presentations and files into your meeting and how well they display. Sharing presentation and leader roles is also very easy, so others can show their desktop and assume presenter roles. I think you will find that Global Meet exceeds your expectations!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Internal staff communications/meetings + external client communications-meetings, plannings, trainings.

"GlobalMeet for International Conference Calls"

What do you like best?

GlobalMeet makes it extremely easy to set up conference calls whether it is international or it is just right down the street. We never seem to lose service or have our calls dropped.

What do you dislike?

When trying to host a call there are so many different call in and guest codes to disperse it can be a bit cumbersome. If you are trying to host an international call that it where it gets especially tricky. In my experience with international calls the host has a number, your country as a number, international countries have a number and every one has a guest code in order to enter the call.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have someone show you how to use the website it is extremely easy and user friendly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This solved the issues of three way calls, expensive conferencing solutions with ultimately ended up dropping calls, and long distance calls.

"Great meeting tool"

What do you like best?

I work with people all over the United States. GlobalMeet is a great tool to connect with them for meetings using audio and screensharing. The call is always clear. The host can share their screen or they can allow someone else in the meeting to present.

What do you dislike?

It can be difficult to figure out how to switch who is presenting their screen. Granted that could partially be user error. It seems that an update always needs to take place and it can take a few minutes to actually get the presenter switched over.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to meet with different people around the United States. It doesn't matter what time zone you're in or where you are in the world, you can easily meet together. This is beneficial for regular meetings.

Managing and generating user accounts.

Easily add internationally dialing, modification.

Conference hub portal is easy to use; downloading web meetings.

It would prove to be a better experience if all GlobalMeet accounts offered consistent toll-free phone numbers for US and Int'l dialing, regardless of when new accounts are provisioned; there have often been times of users sharing incorrect numbers, however some international dialing numbers vary.

What do you like best?

Really like the Outlook GlobalMeet Add-in. It makes scheduling conferences a breeze, but the real value is the global access numbers and the ease of selecting them using the add-in.

"Global Meet for Presentations"

What do you like best?

Easy to use for meetings, calls and presentations. I hold a lot of trainings across the country and Global Meet makes it easy to have people in different locations present together.

"Very convenient for audio and video call conferencing"

What do you like best?

The ease of using GM is what I like most. Also, the platform is pretty stable, and works well even when the number participants has been as high as 15 people.

What do you dislike?

I wish only the host would hear the notification sound when other attendees enter. It is very distracting when attendees are joining in, constantly hearing the ping sound.

It is always a challenge to organize a teleconference meeting with people joining remotely. GM makes it easy for me to organize these calls, and give out presentations.

"Good Conferencing Tool"

What do you like best?

I like the assistance that you get. I've used other conference call tools before but this is the first that I know of to offer support while on the call. All I have to do is dial #0. The support is very helpful. Overall the tool is easy to use and integrates easily with everything else that I use.

What do you dislike?

For what I use it for, there is nothing that I dislike about the product. It's easy to use and doesn't require any additional training. If there is a negative side, it would be that since everything is integrated, I always forget my login information when I do have to go to the website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend knowing what you need first. I know there are many features that I don't use but I like what I do use it for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it to host and participate in meetings with coworkers. It makes it a lot easier to conference in multiple people.

"Solutions for Conference Calls in Multiple Time Zones"

What do you like best?

The system is extremely easy to use. The setup process can be a bit tedious, but once it's done, you can simply use the established numbers and access codes for any call in the future.

What do you dislike?

The international dial-in numbers changed a bit too frequently. We had some UK numbers that were updated twice last year, and that caused some confusion for several calls.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have patience with the setup process, because the payoff is worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sometimes it takes a while for the moderator to mute someone's mike that might be adding a lot of background noise to the conference.

"Conference Communication Made Easy."

What do you like best?

GlobalMeet was an easy platform to hold conferences with clients, sales associates and satellite sites. Dialing in was simple. Whether you were the leader or participant the system notified if you of the position of arrival (first caller, second caller, etc) – this eliminated opening the discussion with an awkward Hello?

What do you dislike?

On a number of occasions, participants were unable to call into the conference line from a desktop phone and would receive a busy tone.

"Bad software goes hand and hand with bad customer service"

What do you like best?

NOTHING! Their cost was enticing, but I guess you get what you pay for right?

What do you dislike?

When we were in our trial run, we had numerous issues with their service. The biggest issue we had was that they promised it would be easy to record our online webinars, but it took for ever for us to have access to our video files. They keep saying they needed more time to process. We continued to push on with the software because we were assured when we moved to a regular account everything would be fine. However this was not the case. Once we paid for our year of service, we consistently experienced dropped calls, incompatibilities with web browsers, and worst of all, audio issues during meetings and webinars. We eventually moved to gotowebinar and webex and have 10 times the quality of service for just a a 20% cost increase. Worst of all, after using the service for a month, they are making us pay for the whole year and will not work with us even though we are a small non profit organization with a limited budget. DO NOT SIGN UP FOR A YEAR OF SERVICE!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use gotomeeting or gotowebinar instead. Or try Webex!
