Highfive Software


 

Highfive is a cloud-based video conferencing and collaboration solution that provides employees in businesses across various industry verticals a platform to communicate and share information with their colleagues and managers.

Highfive allows organizers and presenters to wirelessly start and manage meetings from their laptops, phone or tablet and share screen with the audience in the room or remotely via Mac, Windows, Chrome OS, Linux and Android devices. Attendees can join the meeting via custom Highfive URLs, which are shared by the organizers.

Highfive also offers users hardware components which can be bought separately from the website and integrate with the solution. These components include wide-angle HD camera, a microphone array and high-fidelity mics.

Additionally, Highfive supports integration with Google Calendar, Outlook and Slack. Services are offered on a per user per month basis that includes support via phone and email.

Its OK

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Pros

It is easy to use. Almost too easy to use. If you're used to using software like GoToMeeting this will seem foreign. I do like that users can just click a link and join a meeting through their browser. It's cheap /user

Cons

Not all browsers are supported. Its lacking on the admin side of things if you want to add users and you have to down load extensions in chrome to get it to synch to your calendar, which sometimes worked, sometimes didnt. You have to pay for a year up front and then get a 30 day trial. That seems backwards to me and expensive to test out software. We are in the midst of getting the refund since we will not be keeping the software.

IT CROWD - "High Five"

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

Highfivehelps us to connect with a lot of our remote colleagues and provides face to face interaction and screen sharing capability. Our department is split across to offices one on each coast, and it's easy to start feeling disconnected/independent from each other. High five is used to help bridge that gap giving us the ability to easily have a joint team meeting between the two offices in our respective conference rooms. Its use of screen sharing helps us in being able to provide an easy way to quickly walk through powerpoint presentations or even show the team how to accomplish a particular workflow.

Pros

Highfive is great for connecting with remote colleagues and providing face to face interaction and screen sharing capability. Perfect for companies with multiple offices, or employees out in the field. It's useful even if you don't have remote reps. High Five's screen sharing capabilities provide an easy way to quickly walk through powerpoint presentations or even show the team how to accomplish a particular workflow. Lastly, High five is great for Rick-Rolling your co-workers in other rooms when they least expect it.

Cons

1. Getting Rick-Rolled by your co-workers...
2. High five can at times lag, or run slowly if you or one of the participants in the meeting has slow internet.

Web design and speed.

Pros

The strength of HighFive, is definitely the design that has the website and the speed of the video conferences, the truth is that it is a speed that seems like you were talking person to person, and something very fluid and is totally changing the way to communicate.

Cons

I think that the free trial access of this platform should be eliminated, since in several plans they specify free trials and users take advantage of this to not pay the memberships.

Pros

Easy to set-up and to get started. Clear audio and display. Nice UI and a helpful support team to boot.

Cons

You need to manually download the recordings of meetings, so it's more beneficial for internal company meetings, rather than for training calls.

Great Solution for Group Meetings

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support
N/A

If you have regular meetings with groups of 5 or more, Highfive might be worth the investment for you. If not, an easier, cheaper solution should be readily available.

Pros

Highfive is a great tool to make remote group meetings more efficient and less of a pain. I don't know of any other solution like it that makes two meeting rooms in different cities feel more like one big meeting room. It's not too difficult to join a meeting, once you learn the basics of it. It's got a lot of flexible features for screen sharing, muting, etc.

Cons

The initial setup for Highfive can feel tedious, and it can feel complicated when using it for the first time. It usually works well, but can crash inexplicably on occasion.

Pros

Once, this service was almost perfect. But over time the instability of many functions is noticeable. Most functions are performed, but with significant delay and frequent problems. At the same time, the quality of service deteriorates. I would advise every potential user to pay attention to all the technical characteristics and performance indicators of this service, before purchasing, installing and making Highfive a basic meeting solution that will be used on a daily basis.

Cons

Repeatedly, it simply turned off calls in the middle of a conversation without any warnings and error reports. Such situations cause users to doubt the reliability of this service and the need to use it in the future, especially for professional purposes.

I have tried out Highfive during a software selection process, using the software continuosly for about a month. The system is very easy to setup and works great but interaction between parties is somewhat limited by the lack of a more all-round approach. Would consider for team rooms indeed, not for at-your-desk video conferencing which often also requires chatting and exchanging assets and documents between parties.

Pros

Completely cloud-oriented, setup is a breeze and quality is consistent. Good for team conferences.

Cons

One-to-one interactions and video calls need to be better supported with a chat tool like Skype or Hangout.

Highfive is a video conferencing tool that is stacked with features and does it better than any of the other conferencing tools I've used. High quality audio, easy to use, and many features make it easy to feel like you're in the office when you're home or traveling. The program allows for screen sharing which is crucial given how often we're sharing or presenting information. It also allows for recording and saving conferences allowing for you to review meetings in case you have to miss a session. Strongly recommend!

Pros

Highfive does seamless high end video conferencing with ease. Screen sharing is simple to use and responsive eliminating most lag that typically presents in a screen sharing environment.

Cons

There isn't anything I can complain about regarding Highfive

Customer support in website is little bit late. They took two days to contact me again.

The tool is very easy to set up and use, and it provides the ability to have meetings in office and include remote employees or persons outside of the organization with ease. The ability to share screens and present is huge even when all are present in the room, so you can collectively work through projects together using one screen.

Cons

Depending on what you're looking for and how big the organization, the pricing can get pretty high! With it being a very effective tool, however, all things should be considered. Otherwise, the tool itself does exactly what it is set out to do, successfully and efficiently.

It is super easy ti use and you could learn how to handle it in little time.
The sharing screen feature allows you to decide what window will you share, so you don not have to worry about a indiscreet pop up message window to open in the middle of a remote presentation.
And you can use it in your personal computer (desktop or laptop) as well as on mobile devices.

Cons

There could be a slight lag in screen sharing (even with great internet connection), I hope they're working on that. But in general it's a pretty simple and useful software. Nothing major to complain about.

Not very useful for small to medium businesses

Pros

The product allows for easy video conferencing within multi offices where teams are located. The product works well when it is supported by the right infrastructure.

Cons

In the time where it is increasingly difficult to add new hardware to office ecosystems Highfive requires a receiver to be added. In addition to this the solution is not as seamless as most of the other web conferencing solutions which provide video on-demand. Also not the cheapest solution in the market
