    Pros

    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.

    Pros

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    Cons

    The screen share functionality seems to be lacking. I tried to use the screen share and it immediately crashed my browser.

    It's great connecting with remote employees to collaborate and even building rapport.

    Pros

    Very good user interface, well designed and fairly easy to setup (usually). Excellent video and audio quality, both are clear and crisp. Can be used on a desktop PC/Mac or conference room system. High quality equipment is provided by High Five.

    Cons

    Occasionally it is difficult to connect to a call and 2 or 3 attempts are needed, but the effort is worth it.

    The best thing about Highfive is that it does not involve all the nonsense necessary from other similar apps. That is why it is my go-to.

    Cons

    Since the software is new, it is relatively hard to introduce it to new people and teams, but after they are introduced, they come to like it very quickly.

    Sometimes the sound quality is not the best possible. We have more than one time identified this issue and after resetting and accessing again to the connection it gets better.

    Ease of use and the amazing audio and video quality

    Pros

    -Video and Audio quality are industry leading
    -Easy to set up
    -The new recording feature is fanominal. One-button recording with an instant video link emailed.

    Cons

    -Square orientation for anyone not using the proprietary camera set up is frustrating as we have many on our team who work together and are forced to each have a laptop open instead of using one computer for the small group.
    -It's inhibitive to invite have to download an app to allow somebody to join the call. Allowing in-browser viewing would be better.
    -Cost. This is an expensive service and the hardware is not cheap either. It's very high quality but will cost an arm and a leg.
