    Cisco Jabber

    I believe that Cisco Jabber performs exceptionally well in team-based workplaces where various communication tools within the app enable team coordination, project planning, and data-sharing, all within the platform whilst remaining lightweight & easy-to-use even among the less tech-literate employees. However, given that this is premium software that's paid, I think that many schools & colleges conducting online classes may feel less inclined to spend money on the platform & instead resort to free alternatives, such as Google Meet & Microsoft Teams.

    [Google Voice is] great if you have a workforce that needs to make calls for business purposes from their personal mobile device, while keeping their personal phone number private. If you have a large company with its own telecom system, it probably won't be necessary if employees already have their own landlines or separate work phones.

    Pros

    Cisco Jabber

    • Easy connection with internal and external colleagues via syncing with Outlook contacts.
    • Single Number Reach (SNR) enables connectivity and consistent contact number in any geographic location, which is great during business travel.
    • Great compatibility with a headset or other Bluetooth devices. Retains all functionality of an office phone but eliminates the need for transporting hardware equipment.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Google Voice

    • Google Voice has been great for setting up additional phone lines and numbers.
    • The voicemail inbox is a great feature and you can see when messages come in online and listen to the messages from your computer.
    • Google Voice allows us to have multiple phone numbers and lines for specific business purposes.

    Cons

    Cisco Jabber

    • Stability depends on internet connection more than it needs to
    • Using different tools for almost the same purpose(collaboration) is not user-friendly. Maybe a super product combining WebEx and Jabber features could be an option.
    • Expensive pricing and pricing model for big organizations (per license)
    ozan guner | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Google Voice

    • I think there is room to improve with regards to call forwarding.
    • I wish there were a concise way to know if the call was to your Google Voice number or your personal number before answering the call.
    • when I add a contact to my account on the web it doesn't seem to sync with my phone even though the same email address is logged in.

    I don’t have access to video features.) In an age when our smartphones
    do everything but call our friends, family, or clients, it’s refreshing
    to have a desktop app that can make calls in the smartphone’s place. It
    seems appropriate in a time when we’re all worried about the robots
    rising and taking over the world. Why not transfer the functionality of a
    telephone to the same computer where we program those world-dominating
    robots? It’s practical. Cisco Jabber takes the classic idea of making
    calls with a phone and puts it in the same place where we spend most of
    our worktime. This frees up desk space, as well as keeps the smartphone
    available for what it was invented to do: take Instagram photos. Not to
    mention, because it has its own number, it makes it easier to contact
    clients without having to give them your personal phone number. Need to
    make a call, but you don’t want to share your home phone? Cisco Jabber
    makes that easy. And best of all, because you call through your
    computer, all you need is a microphone to speak and speakers to listen,
    and you never have to pick up the phone at all. If you hate having
    sweaty ears, then Cisco Jabber is your app of choice. Note: Because I
    have access to phone features only, and Cisco Jabber has more available
    that I can’t use, I can see where it may also be a pro for business
    owners that Cisco apparently allows custom features availability for
    users, depending on roles.

    It's user friendly, how to use it is self explanatory, they support all their own options while someone like Phone Booth uses a third party. I can cancel Google Voice anytime and I choose how much I spend with Google Voice

    There are still some improvements to be made between MAC and Windows users. Also the share screen between various devices does not always work. Any user can quickly adapt and understand how to use Jabber. The interface is very intuitive and straight forward. The transition between interfaces on PCs, to tablets, to mobile devices is also very consistent and set up almost identically

    I haven't had problems with dropped calls, bad reception, lost recordings - everything works the way it should. The iOS app is easy to use, and the process is easy to explain to other people. It's also the cheapest way I've found to call internationally - I've used it to interview people from London and Austraila.

    Even with the Jabber client, Cisco support is outstanding, with the knowledge and quick response you would expect from them. Their engineers understand their products and our issues are usually addressed quickly and by the same person we originally connect with instead of getting passed to additional people. Follow-up is good too. Their support is thorough.

    They do not offer support unless you have the Business account for Google Voice under G Suite. This is tough, because Google doesn't really have a customer support team for this service, so when it gets shut down for a few hours, we have no choice but to wait it out. But this doesn't happen that often, which is great.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco Jabber

    In terms of general communication, it stacks up better as you can use your account on pc or mobile(great for people who are not 100% of the time in front of their desk or running errands), [and it's] not a pain to set this up on your mobile device compared to competitors.

    Google Voice

    The integrations of Google Voice with all our devices are flawless, Android, iOS, Windows, Linux and Mac. Also, the call performance is far superior on wifi as well as on mobile data. With Skype, we had several problems with personal accounts, performance issues, and in general, it felt awkward to use it.

    Google Voice should be also be use to those who have difficulty in speaking English.So the contract term will need to be a little strict as Google Voice is used in navigations as the part of GPRS navigation is personal.The private data need to be in control much more securely and safely.
