Summary Why would anyone use this product when there are so many other collaboration products that are fully featured and far more useful?

Summary I’m an independent software contractor with many different clients in many different locations. I often need to review project schedules and technical details with remote customers. I can’t afford a complex, expensive web conferencing solution that’s designed for webinars when all I really want is a quick and easy way to work with my customers. Conferral allows me to web conference with customers, no matter where I am, in a matter of minutes. There’s no special setup required by my customers so there is no hesitation on therr part. I can now do online what used to require a visit, so I can spend more time writing software and less time driving around town. As far as audio conferencing is concerned, most of my calls are with one other person, so my cell phone is all I need.
The other great thing about Conferral is that it let’s me send software modules to customers without limitations on file size or type and without setting up FTP sites. This can be a real savior when I need to get a software update to a customer in a hurry.

Pros The process is simple and can be done at a moments notice.
Cons no audio conferencing or chat
Summary As a mechanical design consultant with my own business, the demands on my time are enormous. Anything that I can do to save time is a benefit to me and my customers. Frequently, I need to do repeated design concept reviews with customers before moving on to detailed design. My customers are all over New England, so driving 2 hours for a 30 minute review meeting is not an efficient use of my time. Since I started using Conferral, 90% of my review sessions are done online. The process is simple and can be done at a moments notice. I can also send large CAD models of completed designs without burning CDs or setting-up special FTP sites. Unlike the reviewer, I have no need for audio conferencing or chat. Conferral includes all the features I need and at a fraction of the cost of other online meeting products. It’s a 9.0.
Pros Securely and easily enables me to share large Excel, Word & PowerPoint files, as well as videos & high resolution photos, and still maintain control of those files when I need to.
Cons Its price makes it difficult for people to understand how really good this software is unless they download and try it.
Summary As a business advisor for economic development, I locate potential building locations for corporations all over the United States. I am not at all technology-savvy. I just need a web conferencing solution that is very easy to use and requires no special software for my clients.
I present PowerPoint slides, show videos of potential locations, and negotiate contracts. Having tried several web conferencing products, they are either too hard to learn, have many more features than I need, put requirements on my clients, do not offer streaming video, or are just too expensive. This is why I like Conferral and recommend it to my clients. It installs into Microsoft Office, so it is easy to use. Products like Webex and GoToMeeting are expensive, have many unnecessary features that are required for daily work activities, and they are difficult to learn to use.
Although the reviewer thinks that text chat audio- or videoconferencing features and instant messaging are needed, I really don’t think so. I just want a very affordable solution for web conferencing. Conferral with its amazing ease of use and low price make it much better than a 5.7. I give it a 9.5.
Pros I'm not sure how I lived without this product!
Cons Nothing - everything works great, particularly in version 1.1
Summary 1. As an independent consultant, there is no need for text chat audio- or videoconferencing features for nearly all web conferencing that you do
2. I just wanted a very affordable solution for web conferencing and collaboration that was easy to learn and use
3. Products like Webex and GoToMeeting have many unnecessary features that are required for daily work activities.
4. Most everybody already has a instant messaging solution, so that is not needed.
5. And, most importantly, two way document editing is in Conferral 1.1, along with Streaming Videos from within PowerPoint presentations.
6. Conferral is amazingly easy to use and and is inexpensive and is truly much better than the 5.7 rating!
