Who's the best? Two great online sources for web based video conferencing software buying research
There is something magical about the way our business world works today (as opposed to just a few years ago) and that is the explosion of quality web-based video conferencing applications and software. Today, there are dozens of platforms to choose from, for any size business. And these applications make it possible to meet with anyone in the world – as long as they have reliable internet access and either a phone or camera-equipped computer.
No longer do I need to travel, to meet and talk with someone face-to-face, and that simple fact has changed how businesses “meet” today. Whether you use it to conduct a sales demo or interview new employees – web-based video conferencing is a must have business tool today.
Based upon our experience with various platforms, we believe there are a few applications which standout in the market – Zoom, Skype for Business, BlueJeans, and GoToMeeting are some of the best available.
We thought it would be a good idea to provide you with a couple resources to help you evaluate these applications for yourself. We’ve used all the platforms mentioned, plus a few others (including Google Hangouts and the newest entrant, Amazon Chime), but the following will give you information based upon real user feedback to help you make a decision (or support your decision) on web video conferencing.

They also provide all that review data to create their own grid style reports on 100’s of different buyer guides.
On their buyer guide pages, you can quickly see where the products land, plus, you can see how well they are reviewed based upon company size – from small business to the enterprise businesses. It’s another great source of buying information.
