    Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

    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.

    Vonage Business Communications

    Vonage Business Cloud is well suited if you have small or limited IT staff and/or you have many remote workers and little or no on-prem hardware. I would recommend Vonage to small to medium-sized businesses. It would not be well suited to a large organization where everyone works in the same building and the IT staff has servers and staff to manage a VoIP system.

    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

    Vonage Business Communications

    • Eliminates physical phone consoles that can be pricey and unnecessary for staff.
    • Has a companion app that allows you to use your personal cell phone to check messages or make calls.
    • The desktop application is easy to use and has a number of customizable settings so that the app can be minimized but alert you of incoming calls.

    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.

    Vonage Business Communications

    • They do not take billing support calls. Online chat only. That can be dicey.
    • Desktop app can have some hiccups and there are frequent updates. Sometimes it switches from my headset to webcam for no reason I can tell. Miss the call be for I figure it out.
    • Text messaging does not handle images. Frustrates my clients when they think they can send me a pic of a signed doc or vin# and I don't get it.

    I thought it had very practical and useful usability. It has a clean and simple interface with large fonts that make it easy to read. It isn't particularly difficult, although figuring out some operations may be a bit challenging. For the most part though, it isn't very difficult to use

    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.

    We hardly have any issues with it to where we need to call them. There was a point where our connections across the board were terrible and it held us up in production quite a bit but since then things have been pretty simple and streamlined.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6000)

    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.
    Orjola Jaupi | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Vonage Business Communications

    We believe Vonage Business Cloud is best for our organization over the AT&T and the Verizon platforms for several reasons including price, ease of use, connectivity, and other options. Since we have implemented this solution along with newer Polycom phones, we have had very few issues with our phones or our phone platform.

    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.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Vonage Business Communications

    • We were able to remove expensive and out of date phones, and replace them with the user's choice of a new phone or Bluetooth, so we saved money.
    • There was training time that needed to be committed for a 50+ person office which reduced productivity for a while.
