Decision at Uploadcare about Google Hangouts Chat, Webex, Skype, Zoom

Avatar of dmitry-mukhin

Uploadcare is mostly remote team and we're using video conferencing all the time both for internal team meetings and for external sales, support, interview, etc. calls. I think we've tried every solution there is on the market before we've decided to stop with Zoom.

Tools just plainly don't work (Skype), are painful to install for external participants (Webex and other "enterprise" solutions) can't properly handle 10+ participants calls (Google Hangouts Chat).

Zoom just works. It has all required features and even handles bad connections very graciously. One of the best tool decisions we've ever made :)

Decision about Mattermost, Skype, Stride, HipChat, Slack

I use Slack because it offers the best experience, even on the free tier (which we're still using). As a comparison, I have had in depth experience with HipChat, Stride, Skype, Google Chat (the new service), Google Hangouts (the old service). For self hosted, Mattermost is open source and claims to support most Slack integrations, but I have not extensively investigated this claim.

Decision at SmartZip about Zoom, Skype,, Dialpad, VideoConferencing

Which VideoConferencing software to use?, #GoToMeeting, Google, Skype... Many of the previous software I experienced disappointed me or my team in many ways: problems joining, voice/video issues, having to register or install software first. And easily, each time we just waste 10-15mn waiting for everyone to join.

Too many signs it was time for a change.

At my previous company, SmartZip, I made the switch to #UberConference. A Dialpad service. We're currently using Zoom at Stessa. I really like it too.

Decision at Labinator about Bitbucket, Skype

Avatar of Labinators

We use Skype for communications and support. As Skype is very popular among our clients, it became our choice as well.

As for repositories, we use Bitbucket for its amazing list of features and ease of use. It is a great choice when it comes to private repositories.
