    Cons

    Cisco Business Edition 7000

    • More cloud based services need to be added to the default service package.
    • Companies frequently require a small contact center within the UC environment. It would be nice to see a build it contact center in the box.
    • It would be nice to see some advanced AI based services (IVR voice recognition service) in the BE7K application list.
    • Call recording should be also built in.

    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.
