Make Your Video Conferencing Calls Easier

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

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.

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.

It is an amazing tool to allow us to schedule meetings with our peers. It also has a great user experience when dealing with the screen share experience.

Cons

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.

The thing I like the least about this software is the fact that it should be more stable since we lost connection more times than we like.

We are using highfive to make video calls for meetings. Their camera is really good and works really great.

Pros

This software is very good to make video calls, the quality of the call is awesome. The UI of the applications is really good and easy to navigate .

Cons

Sometimes the calls have some glitches and we need to exist and enter again in the call. This is because of the internet.

Love the ease of use - this software makes it simple for me to interact face-to-face with team members at my company who work remotely. I also appreciate that all of this can be done without having to plug my computer into HDMI/VGA.

Cons

I wish more people could join video calls. My company has company-wide meetings every Friday, and in many cases, there are so people who can't join the call because of limitations on the number of participants.

Great for any team that works remotely!

Pros

We have staff that works remotely, and with Highfive it's like there are in the office. The video quality is fantastic, audio is great. At times it's like the monitor is just a window they sit behind. This makes the remote team truly a part of our staff.

Cons

We've tried to utilize this for remote meetings, and as a 1-time meeting solution it's not the easiest. There are things to download, hoops to jump through, etc. However, as a remote-work situation or when you will be utilizing it regularly it's well worth the investment!

Pros

- Has a camera you can mount to the top of your conference room TV
- Screensharing is a must have and they do it very well
- It's easy to invite people to join your call
- Quality is fairly good a majority of the time
- Has a Mac app and Chrome extension that work well together
- Can easily share screen on a large TV in our conference room

Cons

- Sometimes quality can be lacking from a client's computer
- You have to have either the Mac app or Chrome extension installed in order for the program to work, so clients have to go through the process of downloading that, installing it, etc, just to start the meeting.
- There isn't a "call in" number like there is in GoToMeeting, which makes it difficult for people who don't have a mic on their computer to call in.
