    Our organization is thinking of upgrading our traditional voice only calls and conferences, I use Skype and Google hangouts for personal use, but I don't think they appropriate in a business setting. I know they are great for chatting with friends or family, but they often lack the security, reliability and performance of enterprise-grade video solutions. We are thinking of upgrading to a web or video conferencing technology.

    Are video and web conferencing expensive? What are the most reliable web and video conferencing in the market today?

    My husband uses WebEx in their office. Unfortunately, I cannot help you with the cost. Perhaps you can check online and compare.

    It depends on how many people are going to be in the conference and which features you want.

    We were quoted at $20,000/year and we only wanted to run 10–20 webinars for the year. Our parent company was quoted at 16,000k per year and are running hundreds of webinars. We wanted to just purchase an extra seat to our parent company account, and they said it was $6500 to add a SEAT!!!! We are appalled by the pricing to be honest. We’ve use it, and it’s not the best platform around, it has its issues and problems. The UI is clunky and hard to navigate at times, it’s not as intuitive as go to webinar and runs into video and audio issues if your attendees are on wifi. The other issue is that you have to pay extra if you want to be able to list a phone number for attendees to call into to listen to the webinar and you have to pay extra to integrate with salesforce/marketo. This is an VERY VERY expensive webinar platform that honestly doesn’t offer enough benefits and features to justify using them over GTW, Webinar Jam or Webinar Ninja.
