    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.

    Zimbra Email & Collaboration

    Zimbra is great for an email system for a medium or large organization with appropriate IT staffing. The system is easy to use for end-users, and has a fantastic web interface. Unfortunately, it is overly complex, when considering staffing requirements and price, when compared with Office 365 or Google Apps for smaller organizations. For other education customers, it is hard to compete with Microsoft and Google providing their services for "Free" now though

    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

    Zimbra Email & Collaboration

    • Filter emails with specific information required.
    • Very good storage capacity.
    • Has a mobile version and another web.
    • It has a friendly and modern graphic interface.
    • It is compatible with all operating systems.

    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

    Zimbra Email & Collaboration

    • The password change is not activated when you access by IMAP, Pop3 or Exchange sync. You have to know that the password change is required and you must go to the website to do so.
    • The management of mail rules should have more checking options.
    • There should be more applications compatible with Zimbra, the ones that appear in the Zimlets.

    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.

    Overall, we were satisfied with the implementation. We perhaps should have spent more time consulting with Zimbra or others regarding best practices but as we got to know the system better we were able to make changes relatively easily after the fact.

    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

    Zimbra Email & Collaboration

    We selected Zimbra because it has a lower cost in the market, offers more development features for its open source, has a very easy to use interface and adjusts to the needs of the company.

    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

    Zimbra Email & Collaboration

    • Since all of our ROI studies and strategies are performed at the corporate level, I'm really not sure what positive or negative impacts Zimbra has had on our overall business objectives. I can say that at least one positive impact it has on my business objectives, in the medical record department, is the ability to be as paperless as possible.
