It's a flexible program that can be molded to fit most businesses. It's geared towards agencies but we've been able to use it successfully as an in-house solution. It's pretty intuitive for the most part and is easy for new hires or clients to get up and running pretty quickly.

As per my job description, I need to work on multiple connectivity and messaging applications for official meetings, and Cisco Webex App, is my default choice, especially when it is client calls rather than internal meetings, as Cisco applications are available on each OS that I work on, and due to similarity of the UI across the OS's, it becomes more help in transition quickly while switching between multiple devices. Though in some older devices, slight lag is present, it's still well suited for good hardware. If I want to do HD streaming in meetings, I will definitely have to go with the Webex App, and comparatively to other meeting and engagement platforms (apps) Webex App is what I was able to get in "sync" with effortlessly.
Read full review Pros Project requests - can be tailored to fit your exact needs Project management - can assign tasks, track time, etc. Proofing - robust proofing environment that's easy for clients to learn Read full review High-quality, high-impact communications in our workflow. It's great for sharing large documents, it doesn't slow down our communications. The dark mode is excellent, it has a good image and seamless integration features. We can record meetings, which is perfect for backing up any information that may be overlooked. Read full review Cons Some areas are rather clunky and repetitive when it comes to project management, like editing a template once applied. Once a review is live, it's very difficult to edit the reviewers unless a current tier is active. Pretty expensive compared to the competition. Read full review The PIN message function is getting deleted after some time. I would prefer it to retain all PIN messages. Option to add multiple quiet hours. This will allow me to set quiet hours for the whole weekend and not just the time range similar to weekdays. Paste cells on messages. When I paste, for example, a 3x3 cell from a spreadsheet, the columns and rows are removed. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
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.

Webex is quite usable, and it is, in fact very easy to use as well. You don't need a lot of documentation to learn how to use the app as it's mostly self-explanatory. The user interface is easy on the eyes, and people can see buttons without issues. Overall, WebEx's front-end design is great and I don't have much issue with it.

I would say every time I open it, it is there, there are times that our users have to sign out and back in to get it to work or even do a full exit as the app will disconnect from the controlling the desk phone, but some easy steps to sign-out or fully exit the app gets the user back up and running quickly.

Software loads and runs well. I like the ability to run the full app version, or, just run through a browser using a lightweight webex experience. In a pinch, this ability has saved my bacon when I had to connect in an emergency on a borrowed phone or computer

The support team is quick in reverting to the issues faced, and it has multiple language support, which would be very helpful for some instances. Their expertise in resolving queries is instantaneous. Most of the common lags/issues in the application are identified and fixed with regular updates.

I am very satisfied with my experience with Webex App in online training. The creation of the event is very easy with the possibility of scheduling it in advance. The management of participants, organizers, and animators is complete. The invitations are automated and by simply using emails we can create all the schedules of the training session

Very easy to create. All operations are done without any problems with our business growth. All people like the experience including me as an instructor. The tools that WebEx App offers us are very complete for working in a virtual classroom, whether it is sharing the screen, the different display modes, the whiteboard, or even the scoring tools on the screen, it allows me to do my job as an instructor as if I was face to face with the participants.

There was quite a bit of back and forth with TAC and Cisco Reps to get it fully up and running but we did get there. Some of which had to do with documentation was not fully understandable. But with Cisco TAC we were able to get fully up and running.

By consolidating the requests, project management, and proofing without features we didn't need like invoicing it was an easy fit for us. We were able to quickly develop a comprehensive workflow and the gains to efficiency were immediate. Pricing was competitive (at least at the time) and the implementation was very good as well.

Its feature like translation in multiple languages has helped to connect and collaborate with clients across the globe which is not present in Teams which was the main reason to switch to Webex, also, it has a whiteboard which makes any discussion intuitive and productive with all the action items making it clear for all the stakeholders on deliverables.

Once everything is in place on the back end getting Webex on a user's PC is now very easy and with single sign-on, users are able to sign in without having to remember another password. Just make sure you have all the user settings in CUCM, CUC set right, and that they have the needed licenses in Webex Control Hub.
Read full review Return on Investment Consolidation of project requests has been extremely helpful. The improvement of campus-wide communication is hard to put a price on. Our team knows what is due and when at all times. We're saving a lot of time previously spent in meetings. Read full review Cisco Jabber helped us develop a Business Continuity Plan in case of emergencies. It allowed our employees to answer their office-phones remotely. It saved us a 10.000$ investment every 4 years on the desk phones for only the Turkey office, possibly much higher figures on the global scale of Hilti. Read full review ScreenShots
