Cisco Business Edition 7000

Based on the business model, this likely wouldn’t serve a small or start up company that doesn’t need all the features and can support itself on a more economical infrastructure. For a large business with multiple locations, this product is well suited. It offers a lot of features and integrations for collaboration as well as the support of a known company.

Google Drive allows sharing all types of information with anyone with convenience. It's also better because the material can be easily integrated into the email. The protection is also excellent since you can monitor who views the information and what steps they are allowed to take. It also has a strong choice for data organization. Google Drive is ideal for exchanging huge files between members of a team collaborating on a project. It's still very dependable.

Cons

Cisco Business Edition 7000

  • Licensing should be easy and collaborative.
  • Management interface should be provided with redundancy.
  • I've came across difficulties while I installed Windows server on BE6K. It's hard to gather Windows server keys.

  • The biggest problem that comes up is when sharing a file and you accidentally don't give the person access. It's easy to forget. I shared something yesterday and then closed my computer, not realizing I never gave anyone permission to view it. Maybe the UX could bring it to your attention rather than you have to search it out.
  • Honestly, the rest is great. No notes.

For its compatibility, easiness, quick responses, user interface, storage capacity, files management and file listings. These are some of the reasons for giving higher ratings and Google Drive has become an integral part of my professional life. We use this software on daily basis and most of the time saving lot of time.

It's easy enough to use for computer users of all ages and skill levels. I am an advanced user, and I think the hardest part might be showing someone how to download and set up the app on their device if they weren't too familiar with computers, but overall it is very easy to understand.

The documents load fairly quickly and also update in real time, especially given the fact that multiple people can be using it at once. The "Offline" feature works great to allow the user to make edits and access the document without access to the internet, and then sync changes later once they're back.

It takes a few days for customer support to get back to you. Although, I have not had to use support too often. Once you get an email back, they are very thorough and work hard to fix the problem quickly. It is a really great resource and a great way to get the help you need if you're stuck. A phone call also works quickly but you have to call during specific times.

It's an extremely easy software to implement, once you sign up for a google account you automatically have access to google drive with a set amount of storage space. The business or Google Suite accounts have more storage space than a regular free account, but setting up and accessing google drive is very easy in both cases

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Business Edition 7000

MS Teams again is an app hosted on cloud and earlier on box like BE and I feel hardware of Cisco is better and support from TAC is way better than anybody.

Google Drive

The main aspect that led us to stay with Google Drive compared to the other software is its storage capacity that is undoubtedly superior. In the same way, to be able to work from the Gmail account is another point in favor because we consider this mail service as the most complete at present.

Return on Investment

  • High ROI, the communication platform provides all the necessary that is required employees to be always connected wherever they are. This improves companies overall performance and certainly income.
  • Simplified maintenance and user friendly interfaces. The platform has all the admin tool to make support easy and efficient.
  • Employees are enabled with all the Unified Communication services and they are more productive which again improves overall company's performance.

  • For Google Drive for corporate use, it is easy to scale up or down based on number of users joining or leaving our organisation.
  • For Google Drive for personal use, it is always good to have it free; however it does not reward long term users with additional storage space like Microsoft does.
  • Cost of using it for corporate use is not too expensive compared to buying on-site file servers and storage servers.
  • Easy for our staff to set up and use.
