Zoom is a web conferencing and webinar software solution that is adaptable in PC, MAC and other tablet devices. Zoom enjoys first rate attributes and can be best used for online training, product promotion and team meetings. It has integrated features as well.
Zoom has a fully featured user-interface with an easy navigation. Whether you are a start-up, a medium business or a large enterprise, you can benefit from Zoom. Zoom is integrated with Outlook which makes scheduling easy. The dial-in and VoIP modes are applicable for teleconferencing. So, given the price, Zoom is rich in functionalities.
Zoom has an intuitive dashboard where the buttons are lined up in an organized manner. Also, it’s quite easy to set-up Zoom and start a meeting within few minutes. Unlike some high-end web conferencing tools out there, the learning curve in Zoom is straightforward. The top-notch quality of video is another shining trait of this program. It’s quite easy to send invitations to the attendees to join the meeting, just mailing them a link is enough. There is no need to download the software if you are an end-user.
Dual screen support is available when you are sharing your screen with the attendees.
As a moderator, you can add polls and charts during a live webinar. You can also conduct a live Q & A session.
Zoom requires participants to download the plug-in before registration. So, in a market that is accepting more and more browser-based webinar software solutions every day, this can be a disappointing aspect.
Some customers pointed out that the video quality of Zoom is not up-to-the-mark. It can get blurry or simply froze during the webinar. Also, Zoom can be difficult to use when performing in a large group. The dial-in feature is difficult to configure for those who have no experience using it before.
Zoom is highly scalable. It has some fundamental attributes but you can always pay more for add-on features. Depending upon your budget, choose either 100 or 10,000 view-only attendees.
The HD-screen sharing allows letting go of the whole desktop screen or only a part of it. A single click is enough to execute this system.
Zoom can be fully integrated to SalesForce CRM software to collect more stats about lead generation. The fully featured user-interface gives the host total control for muting/unmuting participants.
If you have small group, then Zoom Pro is ideal with its $14.99/month/host and up to 100 attendees.
