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.

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.

Troop Messenger

After testing various tools we decided to go with Troop Messenger because it is not just about features, it was working very well compared to any tool in the market so we decided to opt for the best tool like Troop Messenger. This tool is easy to use and every functionality works fine. Tvisha Technologies, we couldn’t be able to sell the services of our interior designing company. However, after hiring this company, every individual got to know the popularity and benefits offered in our company.
