About Webex

Cisco Webex combines desktop sharing through a web browser with phone conferencing and video, so everyone sees the same thing while you talk.

Save time and money in travel. Easily collaborate with distant colleagues and clients. Eliminate the hassle of emailing files and following up by phone. Make your meetings more productive and successful.

Put everyone on the same page: Share whatever you're viewing on your computer with everyone in the meeting – they don't need a Cisco Webex account to see what you're seeing.

Collaborate in real time: Use our whiteboarding, note-taking, and annotation tools to mark up documents as you share. And give anyone in your meeting the power to do the same.
Get up close and personal with video conferencing

We still think face time is important. That's why Cisco Webex lets you stream live webcam video in every meeting or session. Catch all those smiles, make eye contact, and get ready for your close-up.
Never miss another 'aha!' moment

Keep track of conversations and decisions by recording your meeting audio and video with just one click. And then share it securely with anyone you'd like.
Make your online meetings mobile

Road warriors rejoice! It's easy to schedule, host, or join a Cisco Webex web conference no matter where you are – from your desktop, laptop, or mobile phone.

One of the best, could be better

So far, the experience with the application is really good compared to other ones which I have used. So thanking the team for this and hope they still update it better than what it is today so it can reach the level which we expect from it in upcoming years.

Pros

> The primary option which I liked really in this software is connectivity from other sources like mobile phone or other for audio connections which helped me a lot whenever I was stuck in the less internet connection speed.
> Webex is so far the best one I have ever seen where the speed and ease of use is on the stake here. The ease of use as I mentioned really applies to this since as soon as the connection has been done, the options to join the meeting and the security it applies to the meeting is the one I like the most.
> Other than that, the speed as mentioned before, even in the low internet speeds, the lack of any lag makes this application the most I used ever.

Cons

There is really less things which I don't like about this software which is desktop application readiness. Whenever I always connect through the desktop application, sometimes it takes a lot of time to join the meeting which would result in some of the escalations which you can get in your professional life. I hope this would be made better in the upcoming versions.

I quite liked it.
It is very easy to start a conference. It also has a waiting room for participants who can tell that they are already inside so that the organizer can start the conference.
Meeting scheduling is very useful, and easily integrates with calendars like Outlook.

Pros

It is very easy to use. It allows a large capacity of participants and allows sessions to be recorded.
Something that makes it a very good option is that it allows you to enter the sections even by dialing a number without the need for software (although it would only be audio).
The integration that it has with other Christ solutions and that allows adding a great variety of video conferencing devices makes it a very flexible application.

Cons

Price may be one of its downsides. Comparing it to others like Zoom, the price may go up a bit. However, for a medium to large company, buying by volume can compensate for this situation.

Webex definitely works and is completely usable. However, it has a lot of catching up to do with its competition. It also needs to finish combining with Webex Meetings, as now it feels a bit split-brain.

Pros

The chat and video conferencing features all work decently well. The meetings features work well with the Webex room devices. There are lots of features that let you integrate with your AD and Exchange enviroments.

Cons

Some features feel a little clunky and under developed. Chat works well on most devices, but some features are not yet available on mobile. Features roll out to some devices before others. Terminal Server environments are not supported. Data cannot be migrated between users.

We're using Webex to do tech meetings with US partners, and to manage remote meetings of local institutions.

Pros

It stands among the most feature-packed conferencing apps, and comes with dedicated hardware, powerful and extensive means provided to connect users to a conference

Cons

Even with lots of free bandwidth (both in the organization and in the remote connections) the audio can do 1-2 seconds lags, or the audio can just be bad for a few partecipants even if they have good audio and bandwidth, I suppose it's a server side issue. Can be resource hungry when there are >20 partecipants with video. The image quality using the Cisco room kit is underwhelming for its cost.

The most reliable conferencing software out there

Reviewed on 20/4/2021

After having tried several other products, I have come back to WebEx time and time again.

After having tried several other products, I have come back to WebEx time and time again.

Pros

I use Webex to teach continuing education courses at my local community college. I actually pay for an account out of my own pocket after having so much trouble with the software the college provided. Webex is very consistent. It's rare that a student has trouble getting on. It allows me to share my screen, record sessions, track attendance, use breakouts, share files and video. Really, anything I've needed to do. The phone app is very good and I've had to use it when my power went out during class. I just hopped on the mobile app and finished teaching from my phone.

Cons

The only downfall of the software is that users have to download a plugin to use it on their computer. Rarely do any of my students have an issue with it. However, people seem more resistant to downloading things these days and some of them do complain about it.
