Space Calls vs breakout rooms. What's better suited to disputes?

How good are Space Calls for dispute resolution? Is it the best solution in the world?

We designed Space Calls to be the perfect video call solution for dispute resolution processes. Are Space Calls better suited to dispute resolution then other options such as Zoom's breakout room functionality?

In partnership with hundreds of advisors from the dispute resolution industry, and the analysis of data from thousands of cases processed through our platform, we have developed what we believe is the best solution in the world for video call functionality within dispute resolution processes.

We call this functionality Space Calls. It allows you to seamlessly move participants between joint and private session video calls or any other calls in any of your Spaces. This flexibility has been specifically designed for dispute resolution processes such as mediations, arbitrations and hearings.

Efficiency

110% less bandwidth now required for Space Calls. We have dedicated significant research and development on reducing the bandwidth requirements for video and voice calls through the platform. This enables your participants to experience acceptable video and voice communications with poor or unstable internet connections. It also improves the speed of file uploads while on a call as well as other forms of communication through your Spaces. This efficient use of available bandwidth is key in working with participants in regions or circumstances where internet and bandwidth availability are less than ideal.
