Best program for vide, conference, chats and calls!

What do you like best?

I like the way to make videoconferences, because it is to easy. And for the chat is almost perfect with this new program upgraded. And for more things it is perfect in chat right now, because you can now send files in chat.

Another thing is the way to easy to install it.

What do you dislike?

I cannot create groups for chat and groups of Contacts inside TrueConf Client (i buy TrueConf Server), some time i have problems with MICROPHONE, but with Hardware Testing it is easy to correct this problem. The other thing is ti upload photo from TrueConf Server, there is a great idea to do it INSIDE TrueConf Server, because i have photos in AD (for Outlook) and i cannot use it, i need to reload the photos but now in TrueConf Server.

On premises audio & video conferencing, screen sharing + chat - that WORKS

What do you like best?

Easily integrates with Active Directory - the claimed 15 minute setup is closer to 5 minutes if you read the documentation. Other than that, it works out of the box for both local and remote clients (public IP required).

What do you dislike?

One issue is inherent in the licensing model, and though understandable is a bit of a bummer - one device login per account. This means that of the authorized users in the Active Directory group, you cannot login simultaneously to a mobile device or tablet while being logged in on a workstation (Mac or Windows). My advanced users are used to the cloud based model of "logged in all the time everywhere" so there is some adjustment required. The other issue is the desktop client looks a bit dated - I'd love to see a Windows 10 style "Universal App" look and feel.

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

We have 150+ users in our main facility and our Drafting and Engineering Dept is in the northwest corner of a 15 acre campus. The time/distance factor affects communication about complex but quickly resolvable issues - because it takes a 10 minute round trip for a 3 minute discussion, the SOP is to let a half-dozen small issues accumulate, and then knock them all out in a face-to-face with design/drafting/engineering for 30 minutes. That creates a SURPRISING amount of friction in information sharing. Looping shared high resolution drafting workstation screens out into the cloud for sharing 500' down the hall simply doesn't work - having local bandwidth and the proper software makes it a non-issue. Allowing drafters and engineers and project managers (and groups of same) able to to build up and tear down a face to face meeting in three minutes has made a big difference in just the last 30 days.

Easy and complete videoconference system

What do you like best?

For the users it's easy to use and as administrator it's easy to manage.

As administrator you don't need to know all the features, you can just activate the ones you need and start using it.

As user it's very simple, similar to other chat or messaging systems.

What do you dislike?

Users find uncomfortable that the Trueconf activates the camera while they are not in a conference, they feel observed.

Sometimes it's needed to zoom to somewhere, maybe if you are too far from the webcam, it could be useful to have a digital zoom, with the current HD cameras the quality would not be greatly affected.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a system that uses only the internal company network but allows external connections, this is your software. It also allows you to use different platforms.

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

We need a videoconference system for our internal company network, without consuming our reduced internet bandwidth.

Also it allows to use the videoconference system if a user need's to be outside the company network.

Douglas Dynamics TrueConf Experience

What do you like best?

Extremely easy to use - very cost effective. Support from Customer Service has been very good. The chat function on the website works very well. Dmitry has been great to work with. We love that we can use a local server to facilitate the communication, as most of our uses are local to our network.

What do you dislike?

Client can be a bit quirky sometimes, and the version we are on changes the DNS name of the TrueConf server to the External IP address when a laptop is used at home, requiring us to manually change it back when the computer is back in the office. The product needs to support setting up an external conference from the software client. Development seems to be a bit slow in this regarding, and fixing things like the AD link with the Directory Service.

Recommendations to others considering the product

TrueConf is a good product, but the client is not as mature as some other offerings such as Videxio or BlueJeans. External Conference Support is a bit iffy. Using from Smartphones has also been iffy. Some issue logging in from the app without a phone re-boot first.

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

Needed to start with video conferencing in our company without a huge initial investment.

Initial Setup

What do you like best?

This software extends across various platforms, and ease of setup is a tremendous asset when utilized by a small organization that does not have dedicated IT Professionals to implement product use.

What do you dislike?

While it appears that this software has most all of the features of the the common consumer video conferencing software that we have become accustomed to, there is a discernible difference in the level of polish. I'm sure that as time moves forward the level of fit and finish will make product look as good as it works.

Recommendations to others considering the product

don't be discouraged, give it a try, they are very helpful and accomodating.

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

Out here in the woods, we are relegated to using our cellular modem only (bandwidth and data plan limited) connections to the internet sparingly. With the ability to work on our extended range LAN we have the ability remain in constant contact similar in method to two way radios, without the constraints of simplex operation. Having the ability to see what the other person is seeing at the same time is also of immeasurable value!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
