Cisco business edition are well suited for the environment where we need regular communication as they are easy to dial and has got great features. The product is well suited for both small business and large enterprises. Speed dial, good voice quality are key features of Cisco phones. They are not well suited in scenarios where we do not have LAN connectivity or internet. Sometimes we may face latency and jitteriness which is not good.

HeyOrca
HeyOrca is perfect for the social post editing. For example, when I send the content link to my clients, they can easily go in and comment on posts that need editing rather than having to email me changes. Essentially it streamlines client/agency communication. It is perfect for a smaller agency who has less than 20 clients. I think HeyOrca is not for those whose main content is blogs and corresponding social posts. WordPress isn't Integrated, making it inconvenient to manage.

Cons
Discontinued Products
  • 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.

HeyOrca
  • We had some issues with the timing of posts and posts not going out when they updated their platform recently.
  • Missing out on posting directly to Instagram (we have to use another platform for this).
  • Doesn't support Instagram stories, so we have to denote which ones are for Instagram stories and which ones are for Instagram newsfeed.

Hey Orca has a lot of really great features, they make the workflow really easy and are extremely available for help with questions. I think there are some minor workflow issues that it could overcome and features it could add on that are available in other apps. It definitely doesn't offer the best analytics and also hasn't offered single image direct publishing like hootsuite does. Yet, it's benefits outweigh those minor inconveniences for our team

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.

HeyOrca is definitely more for the agency level than Hootsuite. Hootsuite is fairly limited, even at its larger plans. HeyOrca is geared towards agencies, and that is definitely clear in the interface and arrangement. Hootsuite sure seems like more of a consumer product than a B2B product in my opinion.

  • It has allowed for mostly smooth communication from department to department/office to office.
  • It allows for saved phone # / last contact to appear quickly.
  • It has allowed for safety warnings/announcements to emerge all across every office so that everyone within the organization is on the same page about events when they occur.
