    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.

    In the new area of pandemic-era meetings online, I really like the opportunity that Zoom provides to have a meeting space. The audio and video quality is typically good, with problems usually being blamed on the bandwidth of the service provider. The recordings are great to be able to use once they have been processed. In fact, if there was one thing I would improve about recordings, it would be the amount of time it takes to render the video ready for output and sharing.

    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.

    Zoom

    • The ease of hosting & joining meetings with a simple URL.
    • The ability to screen-share and share control of screens seamlessly makes collaboration even better.
    • Participants limit in a zoom meeting is way better than other collaboration tools.
    • Ability to restrict unwanted users from joining the meeting even with the meeting password.

    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

    Zoom

    • Sharing zoom complete information is not visible on the screen, and also a bit is confusing minimizing and maximizing.
    • Every time someone enters the chat, a chat box appears on my screen, and some features are missing from this version.
    • Automatic conference connection based on a schedule isn't an option, and neither is enhanced security measures.

    We're sticking with Zoom for the foreseeable future--given its compelling feature set, ease of use, and advanced technology, there's just no other competition to be excited about. Plus it's a Gartner-recognized industry leader, so it's a rather easy choice.

    Zoom has been very good in terms of usability as I have rarely had issues joining the meetings on desktop and it has always provided me with a stable audio and video and it makes it very easy for me to get through any meetings without much problem. I have found that it helps create a very friendly environment with my team through the creation of conferences and moderated chat rooms.

    Zoom has among the best performance of any video conference platform, as I've mentioned several times. Besides that, their Chat platform works great, and their back end always runs smooth. It's unfortunate that reporting can now only be done by one month at a time, but nonetheless, it only takes a second to run any kind of Zoom report, whether it's an attendee report, Poll results, a user report, a list of meetings from the past month, etc.

    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.

    As I've written before, Zoom makes us feel like we matter and that we're a client rather than a customer. They want us to succeed and they put in the time to make sure that we do. I feel like they're more of a business partner rather than simply a vendor or supplier. They spent a lot of time onboarding with us, giving us demos, helping us get set up, and then giving us follow-up to be sure it's going well.

    If you receive any pushback from higher ups, point to any of the various positive reviews like this one. Or show Zoom's excellent Gartner report, or articles describing Zoom's partnership with Sequoia capital. It's not difficult to show how Zoom is a trustworthy industry leader with best-in-class technology.

    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

    Zoom

    Zoom cannot be beaten for ubiquity - 100% of my clients and prospective clients are already familiar with Zoom. This is the #1 reason why I use Zoom. Additionally, Zoom integrates with AcuityScheduling, saving me a lot of time in creating meetings and adding them to the calendar. Zoom is disappointing in terms of video quality, interactivity features, and privacy. In cases where I need to use the recording of webinars for digital products, I will always use Crowdcast, and in cases where privacy is essential, I will use JitsiMeet.

    Because the Basic licenses are completely free, and because it's very easy to configure and install Zoom, and because anyone can join Zoom from a link without needing an account, scaling is a Breeze. There are absolutely no roadblocks. My company keeps adding more Zoom Pro license every week since it's so in demand. We were able to convert users from several different platforms onto Zoom with no trouble at all.

    Zoom is an all-around, robust, and equipped tool that serves a huge requirement for communicating and running business processes very effectively. The calendar integration is very helpful in notifying the team members [of] any meeting upcoming and is also apt for mobile use in special cases as well. The phone call feature is also very standout. Minimum bugs and ease of use make it the first choice for any 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

    Zoom

    • It enables me to send and receive messages from my team members during video calls, handling online presentations.
    • With the ability to quickly stop, mute, and even receive notifications when someone enters or exits the meeting room, I'm never obligated to show up while making a call.
    • It is possible to record online meetings for future reference and more effective customer service. As we dealt with a lockdown, Zoom helped our business run smoothly.
