    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.

    HeyOrca

    HeyOrca is perfect for the social post editing. For example, when I send the content link to my clients, they can easily go in and comment on posts that need editing rather than having to email me changes. Essentially it streamlines client/agency communication. It is perfect for a smaller agency who has less than 20 clients. I think HeyOrca is not for those whose main content is blogs and corresponding social posts. WordPress isn't Integrated, making it inconvenient to manage.

    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

    HeyOrca

    • Provides client friendly view that allows clients to easily see what content will look like on their social platforms.
    • Provides a one-stop option for multiple client and platform content to live.
    • Great customer service and extremely responsive help center.
    • Easy to use and learn interface.
    Lydia Tissandier | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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

    HeyOrca

    • The interface is kind of slow to respond.
    • The media library sometimes breaks.

    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.

    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

    Hey Orca has a lot of really great features, they make the workflow really easy and are extremely available for help with questions. I think there are some minor workflow issues that it could overcome and features it could add on that are available in other apps. It definitely doesn't offer the best analytics and also hasn't offered single image direct publishing like hootsuite does. Yet, it's benefits outweigh those minor inconveniences for our team

    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.

    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.

    Much easier to use and understand.HeyOrca does what they do and they do it best, they don't complicate it with other things like Sprout Social does.

    Return on Investment

    Cisco Jabber

    • Its a tool that provides enhanced customer service capability to our user community. The users are able remain available while working in almost any location.
    • More work gets done when people can collaborate and communicate better. Our efficiency is increasing as we continue to roll out the application to our user community.
    Eric Taylor | TrustRadius Reviewer

    HeyOrca

    • Sustains our clients due to its layout and user-friendliness
    • Doesn't really allow for a lot of SEO work in the platform which doesn't help get clients
