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.

Anytime you're dealing with stakeholders (both technical and non-technical), I love to put a kanban board in front of them and let them see the work. ProjectPlace does a great job of exposing all work to the user and allowing them to keep track of all their various tasks, even across projects.

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.

  • Cards are good, they are easy to create and they are a nice way to break down tasks
  • Messaging is good, being able to tag people easily allows for simple communication of progress
  • Time reporting is pretty easy, adding tasks from the previous week makes reporting time, which is usually tedious, a little easier

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.

  • Gantt chart functionality is limited. The fact that any small change can move the timeline and cannot be "undone" gets frustrating when the incorrect change is accidentally made.
  • It would be helpful if the time reporting page automatically saved. There have been several instances where I or others have entered time and forgotten to save, since the software I've previously used did it automatically.
  • Being able to assign multiple people to a card would also be helpful. Not necessary, but we have several tasks that get a primary person assigned but involve small input from others, but the tasks themselves aren't large enough to warrant breaking them up into multiple cards.

We're committed now & have >50 users on Projectplace. All our projects are now tracked in the tool. We this investment of time & training, the cost of maintaining Projectplace is relatively low for the benefit. So we will renew, even if there are some idiosyncrasies in the tool & there are opportunities for improvement.

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.

Projectplace works the best for our kind of work because it's not too complicated to ensure a fast project management but it's also not too stripped down so we still can add all the details and files we need.

Return on Investment

Cisco Business Edition 7000

  • We were able to sell it to many customers and has proved beneficial always.
  • Less number of complaints.
  • Amazing support from Cisco TAC.

  • I think it definitely helped us manage our time better and work better as a team. In that respect, I believe the team members felt we were better organized than we have been in the past.
  • We would definitely need to think through a strategy for opening this up to clients because even though Projectplace is relatively easy to use, I find that it is also easy for me to lose track of where items are located.
