Cisco

Was very useful when trying to send a message to other employees within a team or to other employees in other teams.. it makes communication easy as one can choose to either send a message as broadcast or not. It hasn't been useful when a message to be conveyed must include images for visual.

Poly

Can be used in any communication scenario. I recommend it for everything from helpdesk professionals to managers who use it for online meetings and can make and receive voip calls using the headset. The Poly 7200 office series is a very comfortable portable wireless headset that I can take home and use on my softphone when I'm at home office. It has a good price for the cost benefit offered by Poly.

Cons

Cisco

  • Bluetooth and Wifi are not native to these phones. Cisco has some other models with those options.
  • The extra buttons on a 7861 need handwritten labels beside them.
  • The physical function keys use icons not words (e.g. hold key is a pause symbol), which means no need to change for different languages but some users might not interpret the pictures correctly.

  • Charging time is 3 hours. I believe if it were 1 to 2 hours it would be much better.

      Usability

      Cisco

      It is a telephone device with easy usability and installation. It's plug and play. It is necessary to connect the network cable to the device to receive the internet signal and then connect another cable from the phone to the PC to provide network to the device. It can be easily moved anywhere and allows you to authenticate multiple users with login credentials.

      Alternatives Considered

      Cisco

      8800 series is superior. The 3900 and 6800 does feel as well built as the 780p. The Yealink and Mitel phones build quality doesn't feel as good either.
