Pros: Pros:
no installations needed and no software downloads are needed by our clients.
We have a section in our website (www.i-mentor.eu) that we call "Virtual Office" and that is where we use gruveo!

Overall: virtual office

The "gold standard" for one-on-one conferencing. It just works.

Pros: Gruveo makes it very easy to connect with other people over the web. I don't think there's a simpler service available. You can literally send someone a hyperlink and be talking in seconds.

We had four basic evaluation criteria: 1) browser-based, 2) good audio, 3) clear screen sharing, and 4) multiparty. Gruveo was a hit on the first three from the beginning. They recently introduced multiparty conferencing, so item four is now covered, too.

With Gruveo, the calls are easy to make and the call quality is equal to or better than every other service I've tried (roughly 15 to-date). Once I discovered Gruveo, it became my basis of comparison for every other service I tested. Only one other service has performed as well and as consistently, but it is not purely browser-based.

In addition, Gruveo offers call recording. This is handy for training calls and presentations.

Also, the developer is very responsive. I have seen several forums, including this one, where he has engaged with the users in a very constructive manner.

Cons: The new multiparty system is still a little green. It's difficult to keep up with the participants in an audio-only call, because there's currently no easy way to identify the various participants. The developer is working on a way for participants to identify themselves. Hopefully, that update will happen soon..

Also, there's no way to get rid of someone who doesn't belong on a call. That's probably due to this originally being more of a social interaction service than a business tool.

Overall: This is a purely browser-based conferencing service that allows us to easily connect with our team, clients, and prospective clients. Most other services require a program installation to use the full capabilities of their system. Some require a program installation to use them at all.

The service is also very easy to use. There isn't a lot of complicated explaining before starting a call. Most of the time, I just send a link and have a call. The link makes starting a call as simple as jumping to a website. It just works!

Potential clients don't like to install special software just to have a conversation. In addition, some are in closed systems that don't allow the users to install programs on their computers. In such scenarios, a browser-based service is imperative to have more than a phone conversation with the other party.

Gruveo' service quality is as good or better than any of the competition. I think the only way to beat their quality is with dedicated lines and possibly dedicated hardware.

Simple and work!

Hi Joselio, thank you for your feedback. Our API integration option is primarily targeted at select, high-volume customers, hence the minimum monthly charge you have seen. We are considering making the API more easily available.

Comments: problem is that i cant use gruveo in France. And it has to be possible within the shortest delay. please do your best

Vendor Response

by Gruveo on December 05, 2016

Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, France is the only country where the Gruveo app for iOS is not available. The reason is that a special authorization from the French government is required to import products containing encryption into the country. Gruveo is no doubt such a product because it encrypts all calls. We are working on solving this.

WebRTC at its best!

Pros: Works where Skype, WhatsApp and Hangouts don't

Overall: Been using it to communicate with clients in countries where Gov't shuts down VoIP services and it works well! Just create a free account, send your handle to your contacts and they can call you without either of you having to download an app!

Pros: Ease of use

Cons: No support for group calls yet, though I understand this is in the pipeline.

Overall: I've been looking for a simple video calling app which didn't require the usual fuss installs or plugins. Gruver meets these requirements and also doesn't require the end user to create an account. Just click a link and off you go. If you do create an account, you can set up a personalized link that lets clients call you with one simple action. Gruver works well across platforms and doesn't get distracted by unnecessary frills.

Cons: The audio recording will be great.

Overall: My clients love the "personal" interaction and the ability to view documents in our calls. As a Business Coach and Realtor, I value the tools Gruveo provides which saves time and money in my communications. We review contracts, presentations and have live training for tools and resources. Technology resources can be a barrier for real estate agents and have the screen sharing functions are invaluable.

Comments: Gruveo is an awesome video calling & screen sharing the solution. As a designer, I use it frequently to share screens with a client and chat through the specifics of a new website or design. Gruveo is so much simpler than the other screen sharing software programs out there because it works across every browser I've tried it on and doesn't require the person you're sharing/meeting with to have an account or download a program. It just works, which makes calling with technically in-adept clients so much easier.

Comments: I initially used Gruveo as a last-minute substitute for Skype due to some technical problems I was experiencing. Since that time I've come to love how easy it is to use, the fact I can use it from any computer without having to install it each time, and the affordable price.
