WebEx by Cisco is by-far the most widely recognized platform, mostly because it’s been around for such a long time. WebEx is a well-polished conferencing platform that gives businesses and professionals a reliable conferencing platform that works with a host of conference-room webcams.
While robust, WebEx is very costly. Prices can inflate to over $25 per month per host, becoming increasingly expensive the more your business grows.
WebEx is an excellent option for businesses with a larger budget that can afford the premium pricing.
- Well-polished conferencing platform
- Admin control
- No Mobile Compatibility
- Little-to-no customer support with basic package
Zoom is widely popular among many businesses and freelancers. That’s because, in addition to a beautiful, easy-to-navigate interface, Zoom offers all the basic conferencing functionality in a simple-to-navigate design.
Like WebEx, Zoom is a strong conferencing platform offering an array of functionality, but at a premium cost. While Zoom pricing starts at 14.99 per month per host, larger enterprises will need to shell out 19.99 per month per host in order to achieve the same 1,000-participants limit available with FreeConferenceCall.com’s free service.
Additionally, in the first half of 2019, Zoom had faced security concerned with its platform’s use on Mac laptops and computers. While Zoom has resolved these issues, many customers are still concerned over their data privacy.
- Beautiful interface
- Widely used and easy to navigate
- Phone support only available to mid-level package and higher
- Security concerns
