Cisco Business Edition 7000

I use my IP phone and video app a lot to hold meetings with co-workers and talk to suppliers and the support service I provide. The BE7000's call manager is great and can be expanded according to the company's demand. In a single server, it is possible to have many, many services related to communication instead of hiring different solutions from different manufacturers. The advantage is having a unique support contract to manage and also savings in the data center rack. It is totally recommended to everyone who is looking for something simplified, safe, and with great collaboration features.

OnSemble

OnSemble is solving a lot of problems that our organization had prior to its implementation:
  • We can track communication readership.
  • We can engage with our fellow teammates through chats and recognition.
  • We have a central location for all job-related links.
  • We are just now delving into adding departmental pages so folks can communicate within their teams.
I'm not sure of a scenario where OnSemble wouldn't be appropriate - if you have a company that needs to centralize communication, documentation, and share ideas, it's an excellent choice.

OnSemble

  • Ease of Use - with limited html or design experience, I was able to pick up building and updating in our OnSemble portal with minimal struggles.
  • Customer Service and Support - Passageways employees are hands down the best, always willing to take extra time to dig in, troubleshoot, and resolve any issues in an extremely timely manner. They are always pleasant and super helpful.
  • Customization - the available site of modules offered allow for a "site" that is suited for the differing needs of each business OnSemble is being used by. From calendars, to document repository, to creating content pages for staff, the possibilities for customization are almost limitless.

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.

As a user: it's pretty intuitive and the only thing holding a user back from getting everything out of it is a lack of curiosity. As an admin: it's not super intuitive. The training and the setup process are crucial to be able to use and maintain the portal, and we still sometimes have questions.

Top notch support center staff, extremely knowledgeable, and quick to respond. They do not play around. if the tech you reach doesn't know how to fix it, they escalate the ticket quickly. typically, issues are resolved same day. they also offer an extraordinary digital library of product guides, how to videos, and deep dives into modules that provide near step by step instructions in terms even novices and understand and follow.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Business Edition 7000

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.
