Good so long as you use all Highfive applications or hardware

Great to use in an office environment, but you can't necessarily record sessions.

Pros

It's really easy to use on laptop or phone. You can share links and invites with ease and there's options to dial-in (conference phone) instead of just a link.

Cons

Restricted to just Highfive equipment / call technology

Nice software for conferencing

Pros

I have been using Highfive for half a year for my conference calls, and it's been quite helpful. The interface is minimalistic and simple, which makes the software really easy to use. The quality of sound and video largely depends on the internet connection, but overall it's been quite satisfactory. I use the scheduling feature quite a lot and it's very handy - you can schedule meetings in high-five, sync those in Google Calendar and invite guests. Sharing screen option is also very useful. I also like how it shows the upcoming meetings at the bottom, in case you forget anything.

Cons

I haven't had any serious issues with this software.

Excellent tool that is truly easy to use

Within the agency where I work we have tried many tools to solve the problem of connection with the client and the truth is that this is one of the most liked, good operation and easy to use.

Pros

It is one of the most intuitive tools on the market, it has a simple design in which finding what we are looking for is very easy. The design of the indicators and buttons is splendid. Also the quality of video and audio is optimal, it does not fall or turn off when you least expect it.

Ideal for companies (large or small) with employees distributed in different places and also for those companies that have large buildings and need rapid communication between employees.

Cons

At the beginning it can be confusing for those who join as guests, but it is only the first impression. The video or the audio may fail but this happens with all the tools that offer this service.

Highfive makes meetings easy.

Highfive helps us have meetings without being in the same physical location.

Pros

I like that we're able to all meet in one "room" and see and hear each other. The software makes being disconnected from the main office a breeze!

Cons

Setting up was a bit of trouble for us, but we eventually figured it out!

Highfive Review

Highfive is a great option for meetings with your clients.

Pros

It helps to start our meetings on time, people are not late because they are figuring out how to join. No unnecessary steps, brilliant. There are many alternatives on the market. I like how simple is this one.

Cons

Faced some issues with the speed/ delay during meetings. It was temporary I hope it won't happen again.

Ease of use is literally unbelievable

Pros

The first and one of the most important advantages about Highfive is the ease of installing, implementing, and generally adopting the service in the company. As we have already mentioned, many of our employees work remotely, so we just limit the risk of their incompetent work with the absence of the hard learning curve. Generally, we feel confident that both techno-savvy and not so experienced users will be able to keep in touch when it is necessary. Our company has recruited many specialists which live literally all over the world. So for us, it is an urgent necessity to be able to contact them whenever we need to do it. Besides, our company wants to create the comfortable working environment for all our employees, so it is really important to offer such a program to be in touch with everyone not to overwhelm our employees or not to disturb them from their duties by making learning one extra program. And Highfive is a real catch for our company.

Cons

If there weren’t any lags with the program, we would say it could be eligible for calling the best of the best solutions on the market. Unfortunately, even though these lags are one in a thousand phenomenon, they influence the general quality of video and audio while making a conference. Primarily, we thought that it was a failure because of the low Internet connection. But then it turned out that everything was fine with it. It must be magic explaining these lags, isn’t it?

New era for videoconferences.

To manage the client meetings and some sessions of the students' classes, it was very useful, besides being integrated into google, heating up problems, it is a powerful tool for communication.

Pros

The best feature is that it can be integrated into other work tools such as slack to coordinate meetings and it has a very intuitive interface for clients and users in general.

Cons

During the trial version everything was wonderful, the quality and audio of the broadcast is impressive.

Cloud-based video conferencing with minimal lag

Remote teams need a sturdy conferencing software for daily standups and other meetings. Highfive allows us to do that with minimal trouble.

Pros

The best thing about Highfive is the easy setup. You're up and running in just a few minutes. To get on a call, you create a "meeting" and then send a custom URL to whomever needs to join. There is no limit to how many people can jump on a call.

The Slack integration is very handy and the ability to pick which window you want to share (instead of broadcasting your entire screen) is beyond useful. No
more awkward social media messages popping up on-screen during a conference call.

Cons

No chatting function during video-conferencing calls. There is also a bit of lag during screen sharing but I have yet to find a conferencing software than doesn't.
