    The Cisco BE6K solution is probably the best collaboration platform out there at the moment. Starting from application deployment using Prime Collaboration Deployment to [the] integration of the on-premises platform with cloud services, deployment, and administration [is] a breeze. The tight integration with Cisco endpoints and the ability to individually manage them also helps to ensure an unparalleled user experience. With Cisco CSR 14, administrative tasks like software upgrades and user onboarding have been made simpler. More could be done though to improve those 2 areas.

    Cons

    Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

    • Only [things] [I] see we are planning to acquire other company where there is around 300 users and they are using other technology and our management is planning to move [that user] to BE6000 will it support more than 1000 users its a question for us.
    • As of now I [don't] see any issue with the BE6000 so far.

    Cisco Unified IP Phone 6900 Series

    • Some models do not have [LCD] display.
    • Some Cisco advanced telephony service are not supported or difficult to start, since no physical buttons exist.
    • More color variants should be introduced.

    Overall, the product provides excellent value for money. Our employees may interact at the same time on the Cisco Business Edition 6000 without disrupting the conversation. We have a significant number of employees that perform the same thing with calls, texting, and presence, and none of them have an issue.

    This Cisco product can handle more information, can afford this all-in-one communication without a problem. It can be very strong even in the most difficult and full days of work at our organization. We have a strong collaboration with Cisco and have lots of its products including routers and this makes it easier to choose a Cisco product, not another product that can do almost what this Cisco Business Edition does.

    Nowadays I wouldn't select that but in the past, I used to select because they were broadly implemented with easy maintenance, easy to use several models available for several types of users with a very good ROI, best audio quality also looking for Cisco itself they have one of the best support I [have ever seen] in the industry.

    Return on Investment

    Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

    • This system facilities upgrading legacy phone systems to VoIP and lowers the total cost of ownership with cost-effective, time-saving operations.
    • Faster deployment times, with pre-installed, ready to use applications.
    • Support for Hybrid Cloud helps easier migration to cloud, if necessary.

    Cisco Unified IP Phone 6900 Series

    • I don't know that I am qualified to speak on the ROI.
    • I will say the group calling function helps with customer service because we can program the number to ring multiple people at one time or in a sequence to ensure calls are answered.
    • The ability to forward voice messages is a great asset for customer service as well.
