Cisco Business Edition 7000

Its well suited for small to medium scale deployments if the infra is in-house. Webex and other SaaS solutions are in demand these days and are cost-effective too, but if for some reason your deployments need a locally-managed data center, then go for the BE7K or the BE6K depending upon your requirement.

It's a flexible program that can be molded to fit most businesses. It's geared towards agencies but we've been able to use it successfully as an in-house solution. It's pretty intuitive for the most part and is easy for new hires or clients to get up and running pretty quickly.

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.

  • Some areas are rather clunky and repetitive when it comes to project management, like editing a template once applied.
  • Once a review is live, it's very difficult to edit the reviewers unless a current tier is active.
  • Pretty expensive compared to the competition.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Business Edition 7000

I’m a user of both systems and it’s difficult to say whether one is better than the other for features. Cisco is much more user friendly and has a better interface. I think both are suitable for large businesses, but it’s more about preference of the front end. Security features may be lagging with Skype.

By consolidating the requests, project management, and proofing without features we didn't need like invoicing it was an easy fit for us. We were able to quickly develop a comprehensive workflow and the gains to efficiency were immediate. Pricing was competitive (at least at the time) and the implementation was very good as well.
