Very good software for hosting Webinars or Presentations for larger audiance

This is a great software even for large organizations. We all love it.

Pros

1. Our company uses GotoWebinar for hosting quarterly update calls and all hands meetings 2. It is a slick application that has useful features such as muting or unmuting all or few. 3. Attendees can virtually raise hands in the app by pressing a button when they are muted by organizer and when they want to speak. 4. Users can send private messages to one another or can send group messages or broadcast messages to everyone. 5. It has screen sharing and Video camera option too. 6. It has lot of toll free and local numbers from almost all of the countries to dial in 7. Phone app is equally great to dial in and has a calling ability as well. 8. No need of hosting this software in local premises. It is available as a software service.

Cons

I have no complaints about this software.

Reasons for switching to GoTo Webinar

Skype was hosted on a local server in our premises. Upgrade and maintenance was a problem and also calls used to drop more often during the meeting.

Review for GoTo Webinar

Overall, GoTo Webinar is a reliable and effective platform for hosting webinars. It is easy to use, with an intuitive user interface and a wide range of tools and options for customizing and enhancing the webinar experience. Additionally, the platform is stable and reliable, with few reported issues with connectivity or other technical problems. However, the pricing structure of GoTo Webinar may be a drawback for some users, as the costs can quickly add up for those who host frequent or large webinars. Additionally, some users have reported difficulties with the platform's technical support, making it harder to get help or troubleshoot issues when they arise. Overall, GoTo Webinar is a solid choice for those in need of a webinar platform, but it may not be the best fit for everyone.

Pros

The most liked feature of GoTo Webinar is probably its ease of use. It is very simple to set up and host a webinar, even for someone who is not particularly tech-savvy. The user interface is intuitive and user-friendly, making it easy to navigate and access all of the features. Additionally, GoTo Webinar offers a wide range of tools and options for customizing and enhancing the webinar experience, such as the ability to poll attendees, share screens, and record the webinar for future viewing. Overall, GoTo Webinar is a reliable and effective platform for hosting professional and engaging webinars.

Cons

One of the least liked features of GoTo Webinar is probably its pricing structure. While the platform does offer a range of pricing options, many users have complained that the costs can quickly add up, especially for those who host frequent or large webinars. Some users have also reported that the pricing can be confusing, as it is not always clear what features are included in each plan or how much certain add-ons will cost. Additionally, some users have reported issues with the platform's technical support, stating that it can be difficult to get help or troubleshoot issues in a timely manner. Overall, while GoTo Webinar is a powerful and feature-rich platform, its pricing and support may not be suitable for all users.

It’s not Zoom

The times I have used GtW have been pretty simple and straightforward. Still, it didn’t corner the market like Zoom—not entirely sure why! GtW has better security and customization features.

Pros

Go to Webinar fairly easy to use pre-Zoom.

Cons

Nothing— I actually think GtW is better than Zoom, despite Zoom being more prevalent.

Good product for online conferences

I like GoToWebinar for its easiness of deployment and the possibility to connect larger groups of people than other softwares for distant learning. I'd recommend it to anyone needing a reliant application for screen sharing and videoconferencing.

Pros

The software is easy to use and you can immediately use it after launching. It allows a large number of participants to follow the same event and contact the moderator through the chat without interrupting the conference itself. Great customer support.

Cons

Sometimes screensharing is not livestreaming but this can be due to the poor internet connection of the attendees. Also mic features could be improved.

Reasons for switching to GoTo Webinar

Limited number of participants, constant problems with audio and screen sharing
