Standalone conferencing platforms boomed during the past year, but disparate systems lack the synergy of more centralized solutions. Google Meet delivers the collaborative experience users crave while giving administrators enterprise-level control.
Zoom, originally targeted at a consumer audience, was one solution that enjoyed a surge in popularity among business users when the pandemic started. Its frictionless deployment was a primary factor—employees could easily use Zoom at home without struggling to add plugins or deal with configuration details normally handled by IT. Some companies encouraged their workers to use Zoom, particularly those without a good alternative at the ready or where it was difficult or time consuming to spin up new licenses for existing on-prem or hardware-intensive solutions.
Why Replace Zoom?
As employees continue to work remotely, organizations increasingly see the value in bringing users back to a central, unified collaboration platform. Nurturing strong connections among team members has taken on new urgency in today’s distributed work environment, and a smattering of siloed conferencing solutions may not enable the level of teamwork businesses want to achieve. Fortunately, Google Meet has the features to drive productivity, an intuitive interface that’s already familiar to most users and powerful administrative controls that ensure you can maintain awareness around adoption, usage and security.
