Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Intermedia Unite

If you have seasonal workers, need to quickly scale, or cut contracts, [Intermedia] Unite is awesome. Highly recommend for companies that need an at home workspace.

Cons

Cisco Business Edition 7000

  • Licensing should be easy and collaborative.

The web interface takes a little getting used to, but once you are familiar, it is very easy to use and administrate. The end user has a very easy to use app.

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.

Intermedia Unite

[Intermedia] Unite has no contracts and offers great service. Other companies require contracts, and for highly scalable businesses, this isn't optimal.

Intermedia Unite

  • During offseason, we scaled back to 150 phones and during peak, we scaled up to 400 phones. No contracts, no fees, just month to month billing. Awesome
  • Support and ease of deployment has been a huge ROI for [Intermedia] Unite.
