    Although the 6800 range(opens in new tab) may not be as flashy as some of Cisco’s other VoIP offerings, it still delivers reliable, business-grade audio(opens in new tab) in an energy-efficient package that will appeal to many organizations. Specifically designed for companies with “moderate to active VoIP needs,” the 6800 range gives businesses five models to choose from, depending on their specific needs. As security becomes more important, Customers should choose the 7800 series. All of the 7800 models boast the latest security and encryption. Solutions (opens in new tab) so organizations need not worry about audio data being intercepted or interfered with. Hash Algorithm 2 (SHA-2) and Transport Layer Security 1.2 are employed to help protect the intellectual property of your business. This security also extends to remote workers, who can connect to the Cisco network using the Cisco Expressway without the need for a dedicated VPN solution(opens in a new tab) when using a 7800 series phone.

    Genesys cloud is well suited for situations where agents need to work globally, for example. The edge locations from AWS make it a very flexible environment for users who are located remotely. For companies that require hardware-based PBX systems for whatever reason, then Genesys cloud will not fit the solution.

    Pros

    Cisco

    • The speaker is pretty good and almost as clear as the 7800 and 8800 series phones.
    • It is about the same as a 7841 in almost every aspect, except it has no POE, but the power adapter is included. It also doesn't have as sleek of a look, and the screen is quite low in resolution.
    • It delivers reliable, business-grade audio(opens in a new tab) in an energy-efficient package that will appeal to many organizations. Specifically designed for companies with “moderate to active VoIP needs.

    Cons

    Cisco

    • So while the 6800 range may not offer slick features, it still provides all the core functionality that businesses have come to expect from their VoIP handsets.
    • Most of the handsets that make up the 6800 series do come with a greyscale display, which may be disappointing if employees are used to working with color VoIP solutions.

    • DCM (e-mail tool) is a kind of system within a system. It requires logging in twice and it's not as stable as Genesys Cloud CX.
    • Based on our worldwide operations we needed to split the markets within multiple divisions. These divisions are still giving us a hard time with daily operations. We have multi-skilled users which sometimes need access to multiple markets but if these markets are in different divisions, it also means that users will get access to all the markets within those divisions. This is not an acceptable thing from a security perspective.
    • Internal chat - we tried to test if it would fit our needs but there were many things we couldn't filter. One of the main problems was that all the users could contact each other and this couldn't be filtered by team/market/site/division. It also showed the statuses of all the users which we saw as a data breach as other colleagues could see how long users are on productive/non-productive statuses.

They are true innovators in the customer experience space and based on the innovation taking place monthly, they will likely stay in this spot.

The bibliography is very clear and is easy to identify the topics, which are conveniently separated. It is, in my opinion, mandatory for those who want to exercise the position of Genesys Cloud platform administrators.

      [The Cisco IP] phone is great for telephonic meetings we use regularly for meetings there are other products in [the market] which are cheaper in [the price] they have issues like disturbance and background noise where [Cisco] clear background noise automatically that plays important feature for communications so [I] prefer 6800 series over other products.

      The Genesys Cloud platform is tightly knit in a consistent and easy-to-use UI, whereas others were often bolted together products that had been acquired, resulting in UI inconsistencies and limitations of data sharing. The AppFoundry capabilities enable the benefits of adding on more tools that still stick inside the Genesys window, which is a leg up on desktop-based applications.

      Professional services are definitely much more experienced than the support teams, and the price for their services is very fair. I wish that the support team could help answer simple questions about work that the PSS team does, however, so that we do not have to use our SOW for simple Q&A emails.

      Return on Investment

      Cisco

      • I set up the desk for new hires in our group - it is super easy to plug in this phone and have them up and running.
      • Having the ability to pre-program speed dial numbers ensures that new hires are able to reach help without having to search for a number.
      • The ability to program ring tones is great, so if we are in the shared space meeting and we hear a phone ring, we know who's phone is ringing - the meeting can go on without everyone leaving to check.

      • Efficiency has been vastly increased. The number of abandoned calls has been reduced upon switching to Genesys Cloud and customers are seeing this benefit as well as our agents.
      • Cost of our call center is expected to be reduced upon full transition to Genesys Cloud. As this is one of our highest costs of business from a technology perspective, we are very happy to have found something that meets our needs but also reduces cost.
