    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.

    Talkdesk

    Talkdesk might not be needed for smaller companies (1-10 employees) where everyone has their own number and doesn't need to transfer calls. However, Talkdesk helps larger companies become incredibly efficient with their call routing. For our call center, Talkdesk is especially helpful because it puts callers in a queue with an option for a callback. On the internal side, we can see how many guests are in line in the queue, which helps us with understanding how many employees we need on the phone. This also helps us understand how busy we are at a certain time and tracks what's working and what's not. This also helps us track our data of how many inbound calls we have. As an Account Manager in sales with different territories, Talkdesk is especially helpful in using "ring groups." If I'm not available for a call in my territory, it will send the call to someone who is related to me to try and get an agent on the phone who has a similar knowledge set.

    Pros

    Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

    • Reliability
    • Unification of call and messaging services
    • Platform is now unified with Call Manager. If you know one Cisco phone system, you know them all.
    Steve Davis | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Talkdesk

    • Studio Academy - We / our team can self learn on how to address our own problems
    • Studio Building - Very easy to draft up a phone tree and have it operational in hours!
    • Onboarding - It's so easy to swap seats for Callbar and then run new members through the Academy to understand how to use the system

    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.
    Mohammed Ashfaq Hussain | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Talkdesk

    • Better status page. The status page is not updated in real-time and it's really a disappointment when agents are flagging that Talkdesk is having an outage and when you check their status page, it's not updated. We create a ticket to flag this on Talkdesk and they are saying that they are aware of the issues.

    It's not a 10 because we're always open to some technological, fiscal improvement that may come along. I've opted for an 8 because the product is reliable and easy to use. It fits our current needs for the most part. However, we would like to see some improvement in the reporting and easy call tracking/identification if/when questions come up regarding a particular call.

    Talkdesk is seamless. Very easy to use and self-explanatory. Once shown how to navigate the web app and caliber, there is no need for a review of the information. I was a part of the initial purchase decision for Talkdesk and its usability was one of the main reasons for our purchase.

    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.

    If Talkdesk had a dedicated phone support line I would have given this rating an overall 10. Their knowledge base is absolutely HUGE and at times very helpful. It's easy to search through and their customer support chat system works perfectly fine, but there are just some times that you need to speak to a human on the phone to ensure you are always on the same page.

    The implementation was rather seamless. Our architect was competent and was able to guide us through the necessary critical questions to ensure our implementation aligned with the business needs. The turnaround time was rather fast. While our initial ask and setup were not complex, we were using the platform in under 3 weeks from the time we engaged the implementation services. As we have expanded our feature usage, we have had very similar experiences.

    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.

    I didn't select Talkdesk, the company did, I had no choice but to embrace it, I think Five9 is somewhat better because it is 100% web-based and it is really simple to manipulate agent groups, and data exports. TD can improve on that, Team Leader licenses are very limited.
