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.
Leonardo Gonzalez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webex Meetings

  • Broad collaboration options such as screen sharing, survey, file sharing
  • Cloud storage availability for meeting recordings
  • Joining a meeting by landline phone from any country, important for international sales
  • Secure meetings with up-to-date features such as e2e encryption and tls 1.2

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.
Eric Taylor | TrustRadius Reviewer

Webex Meetings

  • Accessing via web application version or via browser is a bit problematic some time. It is bit problematic as some companies don't allows employees to installs application on office laptops.
  • Ability to provide good video and content share can be improved for low speed internet connections.
  • More customization options can be enabled for the user for his ease of access on the main User interface.

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.

Cisco Webex Meetings is a platform that consistently performs well and outperforms some of the other solutions that we have used, such as Zoom. It is user friendly and helps our organization accomplish the goal of connecting with external contacts to conduct meetings and share information

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

Cisco Webex Meetings is a really easy-to-use solution. Cisco has a mentality linked to joining meetings: one button to push. There is always the same big green button that appears everywhere—on invitation emails, in the calendar, on videoconferencing devices, on the application in our phones and tablets. One button and the meeting is started. Anyone can start a meeting.The solution is therefore minimally demanding for IT teams, and even easy to set up and support for smaller environments where there simply isn't an IT team.

It has a wider coverage and comprehensive functionality that makes communication easier and faster and it is always available.I use Cisco Webex Meetings on a daily basis to meet with my colleagues virtually.

Regarding the performance of Cisco Webex Meetings, I can say that as long as the basic hardware and connectivity requirements are met, and based on the type of implementation you are carrying out, I can consider Cisco Webex Meetings as the market tool. with higher performance. Taking into account that in the option of implementing your own Cisco Webex Meetings server in your data center, you may experience some minor inconveniences that must be dealt with internally.

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 response time is very fast via email. Most of the time, they also follow-up with a call but I usually need my questions answered via email.I think their support emails are bit bland and impersonal. They may think it's a good idea to list all applicable managers in their emails but that's not really all the important to me. In fact seeing so many people listed makes me wonder if I'd have to contact someone else to get my question answered or problem resolved.

That we needed complex implementation that we didn't get tells me 2 things: 1) the product was not designed in a way that "just worked" like some of its peers (Zoom / BlueJeans) and 2) had our company defined actual user needs and validated / verified that they had bought something that matched those, we would have pursued features / designs more closely aligned with what the product actually does: screen share, sometimes video, definitely VOIP audio (always an option regardless of license), and easy recording and retrieval of meetings.

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.

Cisco Webex Meetings stacks up fairly well against the other products similar to Cisco Webex Meetings like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, RingCentral, GoToMeeting, etc. All of these tools function very similarly to one another, the main differentiator between all of the other products and Cisco Webex Meetings is that Cisco Webex Meetings does not offer a free solution where the other ones do. This can be a huge factor for some that are making the decision between choosing one of these tools as it can be fairly costly. The reason we selected to use Cisco Webex Meetings is that our meetings require a specific level of security, and we found that Webex offered one of the most secure platforms.

The service referenced in this review refers to the option in the cloud. Said Webex Meetings service is quickly and easily scalable both in number of users and in the characteristics and services associated with the contracted plan. A basic plan can be contracted according to the needs of each organization and if it were necessary to grow, for example in number of participants, it can be done by improving the plan.

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.

  • Positively it definitely Less traveling expenses per person (it could have been 6k per year per person in Hotel, Airfare, meals)
  • We see each other more often than while in the office
  • Meetings are arrange more easily, in an ordered manner as well as make everyone be more punctual.
