Cisco Jabber

[Cisco Jabber] is very
much reasonable in price and if you are seeking a platform where you can carry
out effective communication while being at work, then this is the most suitable
tool for you. I will surely recommend it to all of the businesses which are especially working on a remote base, as it will help you to stay in touch
and being more productive. Cisco Jabber is very effective for project handling.

HighQ

HighQ Collaborate is well suited to situations where a law firm maintains numerous documents for a client and the client needs access to them on a regular basis.For example, we may store the client's minute book (which is relatively common for a large corporate law firm to do), but the client may need access to documents in that minute book on a regular basis.Likewise, we have an internal system at the firm for hosting digital versions of closing books, however, many clients would not have a similar system because they would only receive closing books irregularly. USBs get lost and the client might not want to put the closing book on the main server where anyone can access it. By putting the closing book on the extranet site, the individuals in the client's organization who should be able to access the closing book can do so.

Pros

Cisco Jabber

  • As an on-prem solution is possible to have voice access to the organization co workers and the PSTN, using the own extension number, even when connected from internet (using Expressway - no need to have a vpn or lan connection) from any device.
  • Easy to collaborate from any device (mobile and personal computers). Multiplatform.
  • Administrators able to customize the application's features as much as they need.
  • Easy to integrate with Active Directory and Outlook. Unique user and password.
  • Voice calls and messaging completely secure.
  • Persistence chat for mobile.

  • Document sharing. This product makes it easy to upload, review and organize documents related to a particular project or matter.
  • Permissions. Collaborate allows very granular permissions to be assigned for shared documents and administrative activities such as workflows.
  • Reliability. The product is cloud-based and rarely, if ever, unavailable.

Cons

Cisco Jabber

  • There is some brand confusion that exists between Cisco communication products. This is more relevant to the support personnel and engineers that would be making decisions to implement the product. Cisco has their Spark/WebEx platform that provides collaboration/communication functionality and more to the end users. Cisco has stated at some conferences that I attended that they are committed to maintaining and developing the Cisco Jabber platform still so that is very promising since the product serves different needs.
  • Cisco Jabber is a little complex to implement properly in your environment. The larger the communication cluster the more complicated it can become. There are also some additional features like persistent chat that require extra resources like a standalone database for persistent chat.

  • It is just not that exciting. We host documents on there for clients but the extranet sites have ultimately turned out to not be a product that our clients are clamoring for or that we are regularly pushing.

We really like the flexibility of jabber. With the exception of a few quirks that we have found, we see a bright future with it. We depend on it daily and will continue to do so for several years to come. As our team grows, more users will be using it and more screen sharing will be done. It it an indispensable tool that we simply could not imagine going without. It makes communicating so much easier when time is of the essence.

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.

The interface is easy to use and overall the software seems pretty robust (I haven't had any crashes yet), so I haven't had to use the support very often. Likewise, I don't think I've ever had a client e-mail me with questions or issues - the software is pretty idiot-proof.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Jabber

Cisco Jabber as a direct competitor to Skype in the world of audio conferencing offers comparable features and also presents hardware to emphasize an ideal experience. The Jabber app gives unifying communication spread over a number of platforms, ipads, and phones, like Skype for Business. It lets you send instant messages, tells you when colleagues are available or even not at work on a given day. Jabber offers audio, video, desktop sharing, and conferencing. Skype for Business does have a few features such as "Rate my Call", "Call Monitor", and the option to link with Skype's vast conduit on contacts. Jabber, overall, including the features is the better package to purchase based on the return on investment.

I feel that HighQ does not really have any real competition in this space because it simply accomplishes its goals far better than the competition at lower cost, while requiring less training and administration.

Return on Investment

Cisco Jabber

  • Jabber has provided a very functional alternative to our company to Lotus Sametime. We had been using Sametime for years, and as we were moving out of the Lotus/Domino ecosystem, Jabber has provided a replacement with the chat system, but also means to do voice and video calls.
  • Although handy, intensive usage of Jabber can be a curse for a company (including ours). Every information stored in Jabber is only available to the two people involved in the conversation. Without a proper knowledge management strategy, this can mean that a lot of valuable information can be shared privately as peer-to-peer conversations, and not available to people who need it.
  • Another downside of Jabber is that it can multiply stress for some people, who can be contacted very often, and be interrupted at critical moments. This can introduce additional context switching, and reduce the productivity of some people.

HighQ

  • Permits fairly simple administration by a single person for hundreds of Extranets
  • One shop stopping for reliable, secure document sharing and signing with external parties
  • Simple enough to use that internal and external users do not need training to take advantage of the product.
