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.

Staffbase

Staffbase is well-suited for companies who want to drive and measure employee engagement through meaningful content. I wouldn't recommend it for companies that maintain a complex SharePoint environment with years of legacy content. It is not intended to be a CMS system. It is a dynamic platform that makes it's easy to share information through the mobile or desktop app and email and push notifications. You don't need a large team to manage it.

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.

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.

Staffbase

Since we selected Staffbase, they are one of a few companies that haven't been acquired or changed its business model. We would have invested a lot of time and money rebuilding our intranet otherwise.We selected them because of the standard features included, the free updates, and the reasonable licensing fees. They understand the value of communicating with non-desk employees and keeping them engaged.
