Top 10 video conferencing tools

Posted by Benjamin Hermitte, on Wednesday 19 April 2023

With the rise of remote working and the fact that more and more teams are working remotely, communication and collaboration tools have had to evolve to better meet the new needs of employees. Today, instant messaging is the virtual version of coffee chats and video conferencing is the counterpart of face-to-face meetings.

So, if you want to make it easier for dispersed teams to work together and allow your employees to communicate verbally, exchange information, participate in meetings or workshops and brainstorm even from a distance, you need to provide them with the essential video conferencing tool.

Whether you’re looking for a simple and effective video conferencing system or a collaborative platform with this functionality built in, here’s a comparison of the top 10 video conferencing solutions to help you make your choice.

1. Wimi, a video conferencing system integrated into an all-in-one tool

French collaborative suite, highly secured and SecNumCloud, Wimi offers a simple, powerful and installation-free video conferencing system called Wimi AirTime. All you have to do is send a link to your guests and they will join you. No software installation is required and you don’t need an AirTime account to participate in an audio or video chat. This means you can invite people outside your company such as customers, suppliers or partners. Finally, Wimi’s strength is that it is a collaborative suite that brings together all the tools you need to manage your projects effectively: task manager, shared calendars, instant messaging, storage space, etc.

Wimi’s clients include the Ministry of Ecological Transition, Groupama and Sephora.

Main features

  • Screen sharing between employees.
  • Instant messaging to facilitate communication.
  • The ability to send files, links, photos, emojis and comments.
  • Features to manage your projects efficiently (shared diaries, task manager, co-editing tool, etc.).
  • A corporate social network to foster team cohesion.
  • Hosting of your data by a French service provider.


  • Wimi is above all an all-in-one project management software. It is therefore not the most suitable tool if you only need a video conferencing system.


  • Paid packages from 3 € per user per month. Decreasing price according to the number of users.
  • Special rates for students and associations.
  • 14-day free trial.
