The company's remote access properties, including Join.Me, use remote desktop protocols that transmit via SSL. An SSL certificate is create for each device, making conferences with this amazing platform secure.
For its low prices, Join.Me has some of the best features in the industry. Here is what we liked about Join.Me
- Access to either 5 GB or 100 GB of cloud storage (Depending on Package).
- Mobile app functionality.
- Integrated meeting scheduler that works with Outlook and Google Calendar.
- Customization for higher-paid service levels.
- Some robust leadership and meeting functionalities.
For its free product, also known as a "freemium," Join.Me has some robust properties. If you're willing to drop some coin, the Pro and Enterprise service levels open up worlds of possibilities, including:
- Meeting tools, including annotation and presentation swap. (These features are not available in the free service level).
- Unlimited audio.
- Customization, including a personalized URL and background.
- Meeting lock and share control.
We found that Join.Me also has support for iOS, Android, and Amazon. Amazon-powered apps are not commonly supported in the conferencing industry, so we were happy to see that Join.Me extends its service to Amazon Kindle users.
The number of people that could participate in meetings related very well to the price. With other web meeting technologies, we found that only 15-30 people could participate in a meeting. But with Join.Me's Pro and Enterprise plans, we found that up to 250 people could participate in a conference, ask questions, and view presentations. Also, key players in a conference can control the flow of the meeting, something not found in the free level.
A lot of businesses like to integrate their conferencing abilities into their CRM experience, and Join.Me helps users do this. We found plugins that let customers integrate their Join.Me experience into Outlook and Google Calendar. Also, we found that Join.Me lets customers use the conferencing with SalesForce, a leading CRM tool.
Support for the different service levels are also pretty awesome. With other companies, such as TeamView, we found that support didn't extend much into the technical realm. With Join.Me, there is email and phone support available to help customers make the technology work on their devices.
The customization features of Join.Me also lets a business owner make their conferences customized. A personalized URL and background make this a great branding tool for a business. Finally, there are some robust user tools for conference leadership, including meeting lock, share control, and more.
