We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The UI is user-friendly and very good overall.""You can use the Cisco Meeting Server to set up conference calls and virtual meetings. Those are the two primary functions of Meeting Server. Most people in the company are using Microsoft Teams, so we only use Meeting Server when we have an internal meeting for all staff."

Cons
"A few features are missing on the Meetings app, like a recording function. My understanding is that you need to buy a separate recording solution. It's modular, so you have to enable some functions if you want to use them. For example, we had to enable the Mood function. Recording is the primary feature we'd like to see in the app.""This is a difficult solution to install and it should be made easier."

"The price of Cisco TelePresence overall should be reduced."
