    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.

    Workplace from Meta

    Well suited: - leadership communication. When our CEO posts a video to all company - it always gets the highest engagement- recognition/achievements posts - live streams for education, knowledge sharing - we are a company of 12000 associates and there is no other corporate channel for us to gather more than 500 people in one place.Less appropriate: - sharing some very targetted messages - it's impossible to do at Workplace without creating a group. So we use email channel for such targetted communications- instant communication like in a chat (probably it's less appropriate in our specific case because we use MS Teams for such quick communication instead of WP chats)

    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.

    Workplace from Meta

    • Bring groups of people together to share info, stories, updates, etc.
    • The chat app is pretty decent.
    • Workplace Live is a good large-group meeting broadcast platform.
    • It's pretty intuitive to use for anyone who's used Facebook.
    • It provides different levels of "security" for groups, allowing you to have open, closed, and "secret" groups.
    • It's easy to paste images into your posts and comments, without having to necessarily go through the process of saving an image as a file, etc.
    • It has search capabilities for finding old information.
    • It's available for both desktop/laptop and mobile devices.
    • It's secured to allow only those within the company to see company-related info (but it also has a few inter-company groups, which can be useful, too).
    • Workplace Chat has the ability to set it to Do Not Disturb.
    • You can set notifications, including email notifications, if you want to be alerted to new activity in your groups, etc.
    • You can use Markdown to format your text

    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

    Workplace from Meta

    • It would be helpful if a review confirmation checkbox was able to be placed by files that needed to be read or reviewed. Along the same line, approve, review again, etc. would be helpful checkboxes to add by files, proposals.
    • The layout is clean but suffers a bit from the center column width with two sidebars and a lot of empty space. It almost looks like a going out of business sale retail store where you notice the empty shelves. Workplace feels a bit bare at times. I think some good design modifications can help. Now on mobile, it is a great layout. I am addressing specifically the desktop browser login.
    • An admin control dashboard would be really effective and even more so with more users on the platform.

    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

    Having to download multiple apps just to use the tool is very cumbersome. Facebook would have make this better by wrapping it in as a main feature within their app, but having to use multiple apps to see discussions and walls is so frustrating.

    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.

    Workplace by Facebook is an excellent fit in respect of support and documentation. It has excellent tutorials and documentation, as well. The UI and UX are already great as it is developed and maintained by Facebook, so most of the times, there is no need for any support or documentation.

    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.

    Workplace by Facebook is so much more than just a project management tool like Basecamp or Slack. The ability to disseminate information to employees is easier and better with Workplace by Facebook. It can also be used for informal messaging and sharing of information. It combines the best features of both with the same look and feel as Facebook.
