    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.

    Digium Asterisk is well suited for a city government as a communications solution for internal and external use. Other options like PBX are more expensive and hard to escalate. VoIP makes it easier to use the communications infrastructure instead that already exists rather than having to wire every phone when the solution is a digital or analog phone. In my city, government offices are not in the same place, which makes it harder to communicate everything together.

    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.

    Sangoma Asterisk

    • Call forwarding that I can trust stays on even if my phone "refreshes."
    • Ability to setup various call rules and save them to use as needed.
    Lisa Burns | 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

    Sangoma Asterisk

    • Documentation is scarce, so you have to learn by trial and error.
    • Not cloud-based, and there's no mobile app.
    • The ability to email voicemail messages would be great.

    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 have asked in the not so recent past about having my phone updated with my saved Digium "favorites" list but it doesn't seem that this is possible

    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.

    [Based on] my experience, we initially had to deal with Avaya PBXs, the same applies to client instrumentation (telephones, etc.). Surely we are talking about a product much more "business-like", but the management and implementation has a high cost and is not as simple as it can be (or better) with Asterisk.

    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.

    Sangoma Asterisk

    • being zero cost, we saved at least 3 million on what a legacy pbx would have cost
    • the savings and speed means lower cost on our service making us more competitive
    • stability
