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.

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.

SocialPort

  • Expertise, Strategy & Training - They are true experts and have years of B2B sales technology deployment and training to offer.
  • Content Syndication - By far the easiest and most efficient platform I've seen to share approved content controlled and at scale.
  • CRM Integration - Most of the other platforms we trialed had far less superior integrations with our CRM allowing us to close the loop.
  • More Leads - SocialPort allowed our team to identify and engage with leads and weed out useless activities.

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.

  • Auto-Posting - I'd like to see a way to syndicate certain content directly through our internal advocate's social channels.

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.
