There appears to be a general expectation that with Zoom, you can just have people appear on screen, throw up some PowerPoint slides, and that'll be all good. But it doesn't have to be that way. And I think that's what ultimately attracted us to InEvent, because it had this nice blend of quality video, sound, and native integrations with systems we already used, such as Salesforce. When it added those studio features, that's what really tipped our choice in their favor.
