What are the best aspects of this product?
The price, the automation of services like post-event surveys, post-event display of the upcoming webinars they can register for, templates and some easy (restrictive, but easy) customizations for branding.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
Very unreliable. Despite listed supported browsers, attendees experienced problems joining, hearing the presenter, and seeing the screen. The screen share application is not built-in and has a weird thing that ClickMeeting knows where the mouse will always display on the shared screen, even if you've taken your mouse to a different (non-shared) screen. The screen sharing application is super laggy. ClickMeeting always blames yours or attendees connection, but its definitely not. One time their server crashed right before beginning a webinar. ClickMeeting suggested to upload presentations to help reduce the lag, but after uploading a PPT, it distorted some images on the slides and of course can't keep animations so you'd have to essentially create a PDF of your presentation to upload (which might be fine). Other bugs that I reported and they addressed. Their support is the only good and reliable thing about this company, although it did take them over a week to at least address my reported concerns. Oh also, dial-in attendees show up as a separate participant (not connected to the browser join. So your stats will be off by every dial-in where you have 7 people join and 2 dial-in. Your stats will report you had 9 people join... Same goes for the presenter, you don't see the presenter talking that dialed-in, you see the phone number used to dial-in. Lastly, webinars should have private chat options, not this moderated thing where it seems to make sense for Meetings, but not most webinars.
What features/services would you like to see in future versions of this product?
Webinar practice mode, joined participant dial-in audio, private chat in addition or replacement of "moderated chat" and a more reliable service in general that doesn't cost lower attendance ratings (for their first webinar and dissuasion from attending another).
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
We used GoToWebinar in the past - the best. That was magic, but management thought we could do a cheaper option. So we found ClickMeeting for $60+ less a month. G2W also does monthly subscription so its just the money. The only alternative was using WebEx Meetings (not Webinars) for an account we already had. I've done that before and it works completely fine logistically, but don't get some of the desired features CM offers; registration pages, follow-up surveys, post-event website of upcoming events, etc.
