    It supports around 8 to 10 collaboration applications. It's [cost-effective] considering [one-time] deployment.Helps in increasing productivity. Easy to deploy and manage platform.

    Creately

    Very good online option for flowcharts and other purposes; can be quite cost-effective, too, depending on how you use it.

    Pros

    Cisco Business Edition 7000

    • All in one platform that includes all the Cisco UC services in one appliance.
    • All the services are ready to use and preconfigured.
    • Tools available improve productivity and user experience.

    Creately

    • Creately provides the same experience that other similar tools (i.e. Visio) provides, but presents it in a much more colorful, unique manner. The colors are vibrant, and my clients have always been impressed with the quality and feel.
    • Creately provides a lot of creative control over how your images look. I can play with the opacity and color scheme, or use what they already provide.
    • Creately also allows me to create wireframes for clients to review, whether desktop or mobile. I can create simple, easy to understand frames and concepts in minutes - they're super professional looking and ready to share.
    • I like the pricing model. Right now I can pay month-to-month, or pay a one-time fee for a year. It's also less expensive than Visio, which is very nice.

    Cons

    Cisco Business Edition 7000

    • More cloud based services need to be added to the default service package.
    • Companies frequently require a small contact center within the UC environment. It would be nice to see a build it contact center in the box.
    • It would be nice to see some advanced AI based services (IVR voice recognition service) in the BE7K application list.
    • Call recording should be also built in.

    Creately

    • The transition Creately made this year to their new non-Flash platform seems to almost function like a beta release in some instances.
    • Customer support sometimes takes a while to return and the responses are not always the best or most helpful. Follow up isn't great, either.

    I haven't used Creately's support. I don't know what to rate this to be honest. If there was an "N/A," I'd use that. I like products where I don't have to do a lot of research or studying to learn how to use the software. Creately allows me to jump in and go.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco Business Edition 7000

    I've used 220s and 240s too, but it takes a lot of time to set them up, a lot of time to download the iso files, and set up of datastores. 7k saves the engineer a lot of pre-build assessment and evaluation time. Gets a lot done in a lot less time, returns are a happy engineer and a happier customer.

    Creately

    In terms of pricing and functionality, Creately was the clear winner at the time, although the jury is still out on Creately's new version in terms of how simple it may be to use.

    Return on Investment

    Cisco Business Edition 7000

    • We were able to sell it to many customers and has proved beneficial always.
    • Less number of complaints.
    • Amazing support from Cisco TAC.
    Ujjwal Goel | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Creately

    • Creately is less expensive and dare I say more professional looking than Visio. It looks great at a fraction of the price.
    • Creately allows me to share ideas and processes with my clients. It shows that I understand their business processes, and increases their trust in my abilities to work with them.
