TrustRadius has compared the top web conferencing software, and Zoom is a definite front-runner. This unbiased, third-party comparison is a true indicator of customer experience – average reviews on TrustRadius are over 400 words, every reviewer is authenticated, and over half of the Fortune 500 have published reviews on TrustRadius.
When it comes to the overall TrustRadius score, Zoom (at 8.8) is the leader, followed by its competitors with the scores of 8.4, 7.8, and lower. All the scores are based on a 10-point scale.
Zoom has outstanding scores in multiple features. Zoom received 9.3 points for desktop sharing, 8.7 for meeting initiation, 8.6 for calendar integration, and 8.5 for online events security. Are you looking for the superior video quality? Zoom, with the highest rating of 9.0, is the answer. The closest runner-up received a score of 8.1.
An internet connection isn’t perfect at all times, but don’t let this ruin your meeting. Zoom does an excellent job in low-bandwidth environments – it received the highest score (7.9), while the next highest competitor earned only 6.5.
Here are some of the TrustRadius reviews posted by professionals that use Zoom:
Peter Filias, Customer Success Manager at Auth0, says: “Zoom addresses the problem of reducing the friction associated with setting up audio/video call software. Zoom does an amazing job here – the footprint of the software is minimal. Zoom is extremely easy to set up – it only took about 3 seconds from downloading to installing. The download was tiny, less than 10MB in size! Zoom is, hands down, the best video call platform available. I often recommend Zoom to folks I’ve seen struggling with all of Zoom’s competitors. Zoom is very easy to use for MOST people.”
Matthew Gardner, Co-founder of RouteThis, says: “No buffering, automatic adjustment, and very rarely does anyone have to say ‘Can you hear me now?’ Zoom is used by our sales, marketing, customer success, and product teams. Obviously for sales calls, demos, and internal conferencing some solution is needed within any organization, and Zoom is the best product we’ve tried in its category.”
Eric Weiss, CSR at Hatchbuck, says: “We selected Zoom mostly because of cost and reliability. We liked the features that Zoom provided, we thought it was the easiest interface for ourselves as well as first-time users who have ever used a screen sharing service to be comfortable with. We also liked how we can schedule meetings easily and send a simple link for a meeting invite that helps to start the meeting much faster instead of troubleshooting a call to getting everything started.”

Check out our case study on Monroe County, which is located in Florida and consists of 21 departments.
When hurricane Irma hit Florida in August 2017, Monroe County’s employees had to address this emergency, making sure to fill all unmet needs in coordination with the public utilities, transportation outlets, law enforcement, school districts, fire rescue, social services, and emergency agencies. Preparing their response to this and future hurricanes became Monroe County’s primary concern.
In extreme emergencies, such as hurricanes, a legacy conference solution was not adequate because agencies outside the county couldn’t reliably, quickly, or easily use it at their locations. Thus, Monroe County’s leadership was looking for a fully online cloud communications platform that was usable for all agencies wherever they were located and stayed reliable in low-bandwidth environments. They needed software that was user friendly, instant, and provided group chat, screen sharing, and video meetings.
In the summer of 2017, Monroe County’s emergency management director introduced Zoom to the county as a reliable communications tool during storms and hurricanes.
Cammy Clark, public information officer for Monroe County, said, “The best part of Zoom was an ability to join a video conference call on the phone, whether one works from home, is in the car driving, or shopping in a grocery store. On the day after the storm, I was on a Zoom call when my laptop’s battery died, and there was no electricity to charge it. Thankfully, I was able to rejoin the conference from my phone.”
The county IT Director created a chart, where he listed which communications software performed either poor or excellent during the storm emergency. Most of them were marked as “poor,” yet Zoom was the leading solution, designated as the easiest and most reliable during Hurricane Irma.
Currently, Zoom is the number one communications platform used by Monroe County’s teams. Various county department directors use Zoom for their meetings. More than 100 people from over 25 agencies join Zoom for emergency management calls. The program sustainability director is using Zoom to meet with contractors and people that are working on canal restoration projects.

Headlining speaker for Zoomtopia 2018 is world tennis champion Serena Williams. Serena Williams exemplifies courage, beauty, power and style, and has overcome insurmountable odds to win 23 career Grand Slams. Her remarkable tennis achievements combined with her off-court success in fashion and philanthropy, as well as a strategic partner and investor, makes her one of the most recognizable global icons in the world – we can’t wait to hear all about it at Zoomtopia 2018!
Serena has won the most Grand Slam singles titles in history, with her most recent win at the 2017 Australian Open while pregnant. In 2018, she reached the Wimbledon finals less than a year after giving birth to her daughter. In the summer of 2016, Serena won the Wimbledon Championship in both singles and doubles alongside her sister Venus.
In 2015, Serena won four grand slams: Wimbledon, the French Open, the Australian Open, and the 2014 US Open, a feat affectionately known as the “Serena Slam” and ended the year on the cover of Sports Illustrated as their “Sportsperson of the Year.” Overall, Serena has 23 Grand Slam singles titles and 14 Grand Slam doubles titles. She’s won 783 Professional singles matches, 185 doubles professional matches, 72 WTA singles titles, 23 WTA doubles titles, Gold Medal in Doubles in 2000 (Sydney), 2008 (Beijing), 2012 (London), and Gold Medal in Singles in 2012 (London).
Off the court, fashion, acting, and dancing are Serena’s passions. Serena is also a dedicated philanthropist. She started the Serena Williams Fund, is a global Goodwill ambassador for UNICEF, and in the fall of 2016, she joined philanthropic forces with her sister Venus to establish the Williams Sister Fund where they launched their first endeavor in their hometown of Compton: the Yetunde Price Resource Center. Named after their eldest sister who was killed by senseless gun violence, the Resource Center conducts community asset inventory and develops a comprehensive resource network designed to connect residents affected by violence with service providers. In February 2016, Serena partnered with the Helping Hands Jamaica Foundation to build a school in Jamaica and has funded and opened two schools in Africa that are currently in operation.

Check out our case study on Level39, a world-class technology community and incubator that supports over 1200 high-tech, global companies in fintech, cybersecurity, retail technology, smart-cities, and enterprise technology. Level39 is located in Canary Wharf, London’s biggest financial hub and a major centre for technology startups.
After looking through possible solutions to keep in touch with their members and provide them with powerful communications spaces, the team chose Zoom Rooms for its compatibility with off-the-shelf hardware, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. Zoom’s competitors were too costly, wouldn’t run on off-the-shelf-hardware, and couldn’t properly support dual and triple screen experiences.
Level39’s deployment of Zoom Rooms could not have been easier. Zoom Rooms is software driven and plug and play, making it super easy to set up. The end result is an advanced conference and collaboration space where people can record their meetings, share their screens, and invite visitors, all via one-click processes.
“With the money for one traditional room, we could make six or seven Zoom Rooms. We didn’t have to deal with middle partners or suppliers, I was just able to get off the shelf hardware and connect it to zoom in a few clicks. We’ve saved huge sums on custom hardware and licenses and Zoom keep releasing great features … A key decision feature was that Zoom’s support team knows their product inside out and are always available. I was surprised at how quickly I got a response from Zoom’s support team via email or live chat,” says Qaunain Meghjee, head of systems & technology at Level39.
Since deployment, Level39’s Zoom Rooms have become the most popular and most booked meeting rooms by their members. In addition to collaborative meetings, members use the Zoom Rooms for everything from interviews and international board meetings to podcasting and product demo sessions.
In 2017, Level39 inherited the United Kingdom’s official Cyber Demonstration Centre, the organization responsible for providing oversight and strategic guidance to the UK government on supporting the development of a cyber security ecosystem. Zoom Rooms powers this facility as it allows for secure local and remote product demos on multiple screens via wireless screen sharing of laptops, mobile devices, and tablets.
For their next steps with Zoom, Level39 plans to use Zoom Rooms Digital Signage for some of their ecosystem mentoring sessions and is working with the Zoom API platform to incorporate self-generating Zoom Rooms conference codes for a meeting room portal which Qaunain recently launched.

July 2018 marks five years of partnership between Zoom and our friends at Project ECHO. To celebrate, we wanted to share the story of how Zoom and Project ECHO work together to share medical knowledge that saves lives.
What is Project ECHO
Project ECHO was founded in 2003 by Sanjeev Arora, MD. At that time, there were an estimated 20,000 patients diagnosed with hepatitis C in New Mexico; however, Dr. Arora was able to treat less than 7% of them and there were very few other hepatologists in New Mexico. Dr. Arora said, “The process was extremely inconvenient – patients would have to make up to 20 trips for treatment, which sometimes meant driving for 200 miles, taking time off work, leaving children at home, and so forth – not many could afford it. Since hepatitis C is a fast-developing disease, damaging one’s liver, numerous people were developing liver failure and dying due to not having competent, accessible medical care.” The situation was disheartening for the local primary care provider, so Dr. Arora came up with a solution to connect doctors virtually to mentor them so that they could provide high-quality care locally.
Project ECHO is a knowledge-sharing network that links expert medical teams with primary care clinicians in rural and urban underserved locations. This model of continuing professional development makes providing best practice care to underserved people all over the world possible. In a typical case, a local clinician in a rural area connects with medical specialists via Zoom to share details of a patient’s complex condition. After receiving expert advice, the clinician finalizes their decision and recommends appropriate treatment for the patient. As a result, best practices and medical knowledge are democratized, making high-quality medical practices accessible to medical professionals in rural and medically-underserved areas around the world.
Project ECHO’s Video Challenge
Since developing and implementing the first teleECHO program, it was a major challenge to find a video communications platform that would deliver high up-time and was affordable for partners around the world. While Project ECHO had successfully utilized a legacy hardware conference room system from 2003 to 2013 to support programs in New Mexico, this system’s appliances cost ECHO hundreds of thousands of dollars and it simply wasn’t cost-effective for ECHO to purchase appliances for every ECHO hub and spoke across the US and around the world. In some cases, ECHO had to purchase two sets of each appliance in case an appliance failed in the field. Dr. Arora, founder and Director of Project ECHO, said, “It cost us about $5,000 to purchase cameras, so we installed them in a couple of locations, and doctors would have to make a trip to those stations to join a video meeting.” The lack of scalability became a limiting factor in Project ECHO’s expansion.
To support worldwide scaling, Bill Szaroletta, technology and innovation officer at the ECHO Institute, made it a priority for the institute to move to the cloud. In mid 2013, Project ECHO made the decision to switch to Zoom after Szaroletta and his team evaluated almost two dozen alternatives. Zoom was selected over these alternatives because of the extremely high performance-to-price ratio, the high-availability of Zoom’s cloud-based infrastructure, and the ability to utilize off-the-shelf components. “Before rolling Zoom in 2013, it sometimes took ECHO from 6 to 18 months from the time of signing up a new partner to having the legacy system purchased, installed, people trained, and everything operational. With Zoom, ECHO now takes less than 18 seconds to provision an account for a new ECHO partner and about a month to become operational,” says Szaroletta.
Rolling Out Zoom
Zoom addressed all of Project ECHO’s video conferencing challenges. Zoom offered cloud video communications that didn’t require complex hardware to be installed in every clinician’s office; it was affordable and provided an instant connection that was just a click away. Zoom was intuitive and user friendly; moreover, clinicians could use it on their laptops, cell phones and tablets from anywhere. Another important factor was the ability for a clinician to watch a recorded tele-mentoring session if the clinician couldn’t attend the ECHO session and participate in ECHO’s learning loop. Zoom’s standard MP4 and M4A recording ability easily met this need.
Zoom’s powerful screen sharing and collaboration tools were a boon for Project ECHO, which typically utilizes two ultra-high-definition displays during a teleECHO session; one to see the session participants and one to see the shared content or the active speaker.
Szaroletta reminisced, “During the early days of rolling out Zoom, ECHO had a couple of partners in India. Late one night while working on my group’s performance evaluations at ECHO, a psychiatrist from India joined my personal meeting. He used Zoom and was instantly impressed by its audio and video quality. Feedback from ECHO’s partners generalizes into two categories: ‘Thank you Zoom and ECHO!’ and ‘It just works!’”
Project ECHO expanded tremendously around the world after switching to Zoom. Back in July of 2013, when Project ECHO first rolled out Zoom, ECHO had 13 Domestic Hubs, 1 International Hub, and one multi-site VA program. Within five years of Zoom adoption, ECHO now has over 220 hubs, more than 135 domestic hubs, and over 80 international hubs in 32 countries. Much of the global expansion has been possible because of Zoom’s ability to work well over 3G and 4G cellular networks in many developing countries. As a strong partner of ECHO, Zoom has been a technological cornerstone to make this tremendous global expansion possible both financially and logistically.
Bruce Struminger, MD is an associate director of Project ECHO and an educator based at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center. He supports the development of ECHO programs around the world and shares his expertise with clinicians in underserved areas to treat complicated HIV and TB patient cases. “Every week, a few expert colleagues and I hold a one to two hour teleECHO session using Zoom with doctors and nurses working with Native Americans across the United States. Those meetings focus on topics which include hepatitis C, HIV, tuberculosis, rheumatology, chronic pain and so forth. I also join ECHO sessions supporting HIV, TB, laboratory strengthening and global health security around the world. These sessions typically start with a 15-minute didactic presentation, followed by sharing current individual patient cases and discussing the best ways to treat them.” Dr. Struminger specified, “Having a pharmacist, a nurse, a laboratorian, and a few disease experts in one ECHO session gives us an inter-professional perspective on the case.”
Currently, there are more than 55 focus categories for ECHO programs and over 200 partner programs; each program has its own team of medical experts that specialize in different diseases or populations. These experts hold regular, Zoom-powered teleECHO sessions with practicing clinicians located in rural or medically underserved areas, where the latter present case histories of their current patients. Using Zoom, the experts who are often geographically displaced discuss complicated health problems and help the clinician decide on the best treatment for their current patients. Through this process, Zoom has helped spread expert knowledge to build capacity to keep healthcare quality high, regardless of location.
In 2025 Project ECHO and Zoom will have successfully collaborated for 12 years. It will also be a milestone year – Project ECHO has a goal to positively impact the lives of 1 billion people by 2025. The last five years of ECHO using Zoom has made a significant difference in Project ECHO’s growth – their motto is “Moving knowledge, not people,” and Zoom is a core component that actually makes it possible.
Many medical professionals who are also educators have had an opportunity to use Zoom through Project ECHO and have realized that it’s the best video communications tool available on the market. This has led to educators bringing it up to their administration, resulting in many top universities across the US and around the world purchasing Zoom for both administrative and e-learning purposes.
“Zoom has been a powerful partner for Project ECHO and will be into the future as we continue to grow and scale the ECHO model around the globe. We have had such success with Zoom that we have negotiated and signed three contracts with the Zoom team, with the third stretching through 2025. Zoom’s flexible and powerful service enables us to easily connect our existing legacy room systems while allowing ECHO to comply with information security and privacy regulations,” said Szaroletta.
“Project ECHO’s worldwide rate of growth has been significantly increased as a result of our strong partnership with Zoom. We look forward to continuing leveraging our partnership with Zoom to help the ECHO Model address complex problems,” said Arora.
“Zoom is proud to be a part of this important effort to reduce rates of chronic disease and improve healthcare in rural areas. We have worked with Project ECHO for years, and we’re pleased that they will be able to scale their programs far and wide. It is rewarding to see our secure, easy, compliant video communications platform help this important mission,” said Eric S. Yuan, founder and CEO of Zoom.
