Your work is vital. We are raising funds to support it.
We regularly deliver academic content, often for CEUs The audience is largely upper management.
We have been experimenting with using Skype for webinars and many of our constituents have found the interface to be thoroughly unintuitive. Mac users are very frustrated with us.
What do you use? Why that one? If you had a small budget and a Director who is willing to consider moving away from Skype, what might you use?
Background: We are an Office 365 tenant trying to stretch our pennies but finding we may need to step out of the all-inclusive 365 buffet.
We're using Office 365 too, but I heard a few good things about Zoho Office. It's pretty cheap too. I think they offer a few weeks of free trial so you may wanna give it a go.
Sorry you haven't gotten much in replies to this.
I love WebEx and Go To Meeting. But, I've never had to pay for either - when I teach online classes, this is what my clients have used. Both have been so incredibly easy for users to use, across different computers. I never worry about either not working.
On another note, thanks for your posts to TechSoup - you've provided some good info.

Thank you @jcravens42 and @kyletheguy9009 for posting earlier. I appreciate your time. I miss the ease of use I enjoyed with a more expensive product at a previous job, but the cost has to be offset by actual usage and we are not yet meeting with that level of frequency.
For now I set up the Logitech with Skype and I will continue to test it with Teams as Microsoft has made it obvious we will eventually get pushed off Skype for Business and into Teams. Lots of complaints about the interface. Other tools I looked at, which appear to work exceptionally well from the client / attendee side but too pricey for us.
Microsoft Office 365 and the Skype for Business are great networking tools for small and large organizations. However, if you would like a recommendation for a useful video conferencing and content sharing platform, you should consider ZOOM. It's inexpensive and very user friendly. Their enterprise Level plan is rather inexpensive.
