Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Jabber
The organization is using Cisco Jabber all along LATAM as a collaboration and communication tool, which includes voice, messaging, voicemail, file transfer service and persistent chat messages, for all staff personal and for any device (laptops and mobile devices), including internet connectivity though the Expressway servers. We are not experiencing problems to mention.
- 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.
- Look and feel could be better than currently is.
- Not many emoticons are available in the standard way.
- Give the chance to the end users to upload the contact photo.
- During COVID-19 [it] was a great way to stay communicated with the organization's co-workers.
- Return on Investment.
- Business continuity during pandemic times.
- Skype for Business (formerly Lync)
Cisco Jabber prevails over the Skype for Business option, particularly in those organizations where Cisco infrastructure exists, such as the Communications Manager suite, voice gateways and brand devices that use services for the PSTN, since integrations and interoperability are essential. practically native.
Additionally, it could be added that the support of the manufacturer, even the integrations towards other 3rd party vendors such as Microsoft, are very well developed.

Are you happy with Cisco Jabber's feature set?
Did Cisco Jabber live up to sales and marketing promises?
I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process
Did implementation of Cisco Jabber go as expected?
Would you buy Cisco Jabber again?
Jabber is well suited [for] those organizations where the infrastructure is the capable to support the requirements of Jabber solutions, CUCM, IMP, and there is more room to accommodate additional features such as Mobile Remote Access (using Expressways) media file transfer or persistence chat. Notice that knowledge in Cisco collaboration products is needed in order to design, implement, support and maintain the platform. Other than that supposed to be a less appropriate IT scenario.
