    Pros: 

    Excellent and quick onboarding experience. UI is good. As a straightforward experience, video calls and screen sharing works with ease.

    Cons: 

    Chat modal with rich text features.

    Confrere is a very simple and smart solution for BtoB and BtoC online digital experience web app as a service. You guys did a great work for real business needs. Congrats for this first version!

    However, I experienced some UI/UX points to optimize.

    1. Logo

    Logo needs to be displayed retina. I uploaded a 3000 x 3000px PNG file, and it stays kind of fuzzy.

    2. Dashboard Button

    Not sure this button needs to be displayed in visitor's screen. This button is distractive and confusing in visitor/client onboarding experience.

    3. Color Branding

    This feature works great in dashboard. However, it will be great to customize the progress bar and infos field color. The greenish color as default should be a nice neutral light grey, for a perfect mix and match secondary color with primary color.

    4. Call Button

    Concerning the 'Who are you meeting with today?' section, a "CALL" button should be at that stage, in order to be very clear for the visitor/client action.

    5. Freemium

    As I clicked the "Try for free" button in the Desk plan, I didn't find any access to the payment integration in my dashboard. As it is mentioned there is 30 days to try free, I think it is the main and critical feature we need to try and test for back and front end user experience.

    6. Integrations

    Most of backend users are non techies or code friendly, meaning it will be great to implement the best appointment, invoicing... third party integrations.

    I am pretty sure, Confrere will be a game changer solution in this strategic niche.

    Best,

    Rudy

    Pros: 

    It just works! Absolutely incredible onboarding for user and client. Custom branding is super nice. Very well thought out in all aspects!

    Cons: 

    None so far

    Literally less than a minute to set up with smooth onboarding, a custom user interface. I will have no problem taking calls with clients using this platform.

Hey everyone! There’s a bunch of tools out there in the video calling/conferencing space, but they’re mostly geared towards internal/team collaboration. But what about professionals and businesses that traditionally meet with their clients face to face? Tutors, consultants, therapists, physicians, sales executives - the list goes on. Confrere is a video calling tool tailored for professional, external meetings, without the hassle of downloads or sign-ups. It’s just a link. We wrote the first lines of code in August, and we’ve had so much fun creating this product together. This is a first version and we’ve still have tons of ideas we want to realise. We would love to hear from the ProductHunt community what you like and dislike about Confrere, and also what kind of features you’d like to see in the future!! Cheers, Ida

I will just follow up on some of the questions we’ve got on Twitter :) The illustrations are made by the amazing Bjørn Brochmann. Check him out on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bjornb... We’ve got on our todo list to make the API documentation more available, but in the meantime you can read it here: https://docs.google.com/document... We also offer per call pricing if you’re building a service around video calls. Just get in touch if you need a quote or a demo :) All plans, including the free plan will be GDPR compliant. We’re working on documenting or compliance.

@idaaa This is just incredible...I would love to talk to you guys more on custom pricing as I was looking at an api service my co could offset the load around building out our tutoring platform as apart of our expanding brand. We have over 350,000 users and already have 20 tutors in standby this could accelerate a lot!

My friend Ida and her incredibly talented team have built a no-hassle video conversation platform for professionals. They've been at it for almost a year now, and they're ready for a global launch. Give them vote and ask them questions!
