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.

Igloo

Igloo is a well-suited option for teams/companies that want to build an employee intranet with some other interesting features, like file storage and sharing, internal communications, and resource and knowledge management. All of these features may help your workers increase productivity significantly by centralizing everything in one robust and reliable platform. However, it can be less appropriate if costs are a problem for you, due to the pricing. So, if you will not be using several features and just want an intranet for you company, you may want to go with another solution.

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.

Igloo

  • Notifications: Igloo can push email updates to users.
  • Organization: Igloo allows for you to create pages, sub pages, and many layer deep sections. You can also organize the layout of your pages.
  • Versioning: it's super easy to reserve and edit documents for offline use. And you can see who last edited a document and when.
  • Offline access: there's a desktop version you can use very easily. It's really good for dropping a bunch of files at once.

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.

Igloo

  • Their UI is not used-friendly. Their use of Igloo-specific terminology made it difficult to understand how each function of the site worked. They would repeatedly say, for example, "a ___ is really a ___" vs. just calling it what the function actually is.
  • Implementation was a far cry from their sales support. After basically nickel-and-diming you for everything, they - very poorly - cap your use of their implementation support team.
  • Overall, Igloo didn't work for our organization because they do multiple things decently vs a few things excellently. The experience with Igloo was unremarkable.

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.

Igloo

Igloo was much more intuitive to set-up and navigate. In addition, Jive did not have file folders for documents and that was really needed.

Return on Investment

Cisco Business Edition 7000

  • 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.

Igloo

  • Igloo has helped us save a lot of time on communications and sharing.
  • We have also solved the problem of communication failure between people.
