What do you like best?

I found HighFive a great software to use. First, installation was very easy on my work laptop. Second, it was so easy to create "meetings" that others can join. Others join by getting a link of the "meeting". Thirdly, during the meeting, it was so easy to navigate a meeting and interact with others. We interact by sharing our screens and/or real time videos of ourselves. Everything was intuitive. From set up, to meeting creation, to software navigation, and to performance - -everything was easy and seamless.

Loved that the whole thing is cloud based. Our company has the software installed in the board room and that is very helpful too.

What do you dislike?

To be honest, there's nothing to dislike. The whole thing was so easy to use. It doesn't take a genius to use High Five. But the product was by no means for idiots. It did the job it was set out to do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To give it a try. It is really easy and it does the job.

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

We want quick real time access to people and to be able to conduct discussions on things we would like to share from our computer and still keep that communication with others who are not in the same room. The benefit of HighFive is that it has enabled us to conduct meetings as if everyone was in the same room and on the same page.

Good product

What do you like best?

It handles a ton of callers no problem, phone calling into a meeting works well and easy, and slack integration is super nice.

What do you dislike?

My only small complaint is the lag on screensharing. Even with a good internet connection, there is a delay between audio and the screen going through, so if you are showing someone something they may not see it for a few seconds after you say. This is a hard problem I haven't seen many other products do any better, but something to work on possibly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Honestly don't know what pricing is like because others at my firm handle that but it's a high quality product to be sure.

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

Our firm has a lot of people who work remotely so highfive is a necessity to our day-to-day. We often hop on quick calls to show each other how to do things, as well as of course daily meetings.

What do you like best?

Very user friendly. I also really like that screen sharing allows you to pick a window, since I use multiple screens, and not all video sharing programs like this allow you to do that. Especially being HR and having potential confidential emails pop up on the side of my screen during training can be a concern but I never have to worry about that with highfive.

What do you dislike?

Honestly I cant think of anything major at all. If I have to say something, maybe a little bigger windows for the video part of things so you can better see the people you are collaborating with and making the screen sharing portion a little smaller to accommodate that.

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

Ability to train employees in other branches more effectively. Guiding people over the phone makes it more difficult to see where people are going wrong and does not allow me to demonstrate, but with highfive training for expense and payroll systems is super easy and employees learn much quicker and have much less follow up questions and issues post training than previous employees I trained over the phone.

What do you like best?

We have the professional level kit with the dolby microphone and the overall call clarity (both video and sound) is far better than any other tool we've used. It is so easy and has made our team look forward to our meetings throughout the week.

What do you dislike?

We've encountered a few bugs here and there with others in a virtual space (not in the home office with main camera and mic). Nothing major, but over time, those bugs could be very annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't do anything less than the Dolby speaker. We've found the slight increase in price to be well worth it.

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

We have 3 remote employees. It is difficult to connect with the home office at times. It is hard to gauge the mood of the room and really connect during meetings. Previously, our calls were plagued with bad connections and video quality. Our experience with highfive has brought new life into our remote/home base interactions.

Perfect video conferencing experience

What do you like best?

Unlike Skype Business, HighFive is a modern video conferencing tool that is great for connecting employees from different offices and even candidates to hiring managers in different locations. HighFive allows for a global experience for companies, gives engineering teams from different locations to participate in scrum meetings together and allows remote employees to video conference into meetings.

Another great feature is the Screen Share feature, allowing you to share your screen with the other video conference call participants. This is perfect for presentations and meetings.

Highfive is easy to use on your laptop or mobile device.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that could be improved on high five is that there is no chatting function during a video conference call.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is definitely a software worth considering. There is no limit to how many people can join one video conference call and is a great too for remote employees, connecting with off-site employees and video interviewing for candidatse.

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

With Highfive, our company is putting an end to the disconnect we had between our 3 different office locations. With that disconnect gone, everyone is more engaged with the other offices, creating a more cohesive national team.

What do you like best?

It is an easy to use and intuitive tool, with a fine interface, accessibility everywhere, and a good quality scaling set. Audio is consistently good across all platforms. Video scaling is good in low to mid-res applications. Remote site sessions are nice and fluid, with excellent audio, particularly if a headset is used. Color selection and interface is attractive and contemporary. Fits well with many company themes that are technology-oriented.

What do you dislike?

The proprietary camera system for the boardroom is slightly larger than most web cameras and makes it challenging to mount. The camera, however, contains the smarts for the local (in boardroom) operations. Once installed and deployed, it's easy coasting. Video scaling is not so good when connected to a 4K system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get your users on the same page for a consistent experience throughout. A quick 1/2 hr training session will yield great results during the collab sessions.

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

Collaboration between users in separate conference rooms and home offices become simple and well-orchestrated. Users appreciate the consistent look and feel across platforms and take advantage of the features since they are intuitive. Users on the road have good access since the Bluetooth implementation works well with cellphones and car audio.
