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.

Nextcloud

While searching for tools to satisfy a quickly scaling online startup, we found Nextcloud is well suited for today's remote collaborative team. Nextcloud has just the right toolset for a collaborative workspace including video, chat, many file formats accepted, and intuitive user interface. Comparatively other popular tools like Trello were distracting with more features than functionality. Working with Nextcloud is much like having a workspace with all your content and tools available anywhere on any device, without the ads, distractions, and irrelevant functionality. We will continue to utilize Nextcloud as a remote workspace for evolving and scaling teams.

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

Nextcloud

  • Very intuitive interface.
  • Superb synchronization agent.
  • Integration with AD/LDAP, external file sources, and other tools is top-notch.
  • Wide variety of "apps" (plugins).
Joe Foran | 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

Nextcloud

  • Slow in comparison to other solutions
  • May be complex for the start since there are lots of apps and features
  • May be not focusing on core topics

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

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.

I never needed support as everything always worked fine. The documentation on Nextcloud website is extensive and clear. The community is very active on the forum and should support you if you don't already find what you are looking for.

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.
Jian Groenewald | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nextcloud

Nextcloud stacks up pretty well against Mattermost and ownCloud. I really appreciate the fact that Nextcloud seems to integrate with other products pretty seamlessly and allows for extensibility that our product team can extend and improve functionality without a tremendous ramp-up time. We once used ownCloud in previous years, but they went the wrong way, and have found Nextcloud to be the right direction over time.

Eric Taylor | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nextcloud

  • Reduced costs: Cheaper than hosted alternatives if you need a lot of space.
  • Professional impression on partners and clients (branding, security).
