What does the company do well?
A good video Conferencing Platform with intuitive and seamless experience of video sharing/taking meetings. Zoom unifies cloud video conferencing, simple online meetings, and group messaging into one easy-to-use platform.Zoom makes it possible to share the screen with others: either to record a solo session; screen share with others in a meeting while having the ability to record audio and video; share only a specific window or the entire desktop and there's also a quick way to switch between different screens from participants, all of it being configurable in the application.
What does the company not do well?
There are also various notable glitches when moving Zoom windows around, such as the video window being duplicated when recording and staying on the screen for extended periods of time, ruining the quality of any recording being made. Because of those shortcomings, it is impractical to try and move the windows when recording and some features simply need to be forgotten at those times. Moreover limited time session usage without purchasing upgraded option
What do you wish you had known about the company before using?
I feel that Zoom is quite capable of rendering a good enough video for formal meetings that need to be shared later by other means. The encoding used for exported videos is a great compromise between size and quality, making it a viable option when it comes to sharing a meeting online. I wouldn't recommend Zoom for producing high-quality videos intended for commercial use or for presentations with a large audience
Have you used a competitor to Zoom? If so, how does it compare?
Skype, Skype for Business, Goto Meetings, Web-Ex meetings are also profoundly used software for taking video calls/meetings/sessions/screens sharing etc.
