    Pros

    Struggling to find something good to say. The interface has improved over the years. Logging in isn't too bad.

    Cons

    Administration of users is difficult and not intuitive. The instance we had was constantly locking up and was not easy to use.

    Pros

    Shoretel is the low-cost but quality unified communication we use. They offer variety of IP phones, from USB phones, Wireless Phones, Video phones and conferences phones you will have a lot of choices depending on type of application you want to use on reasonable price.

    Cons

    Deploying Unified communication requires study before implementation. Collaborate and request assistance from your local Shoretel partner to get accurate solution.

    Pros

    Mitel phones are in plenty of stable deployments around the country. They're generally great at getting out of the way and letting you do your work.

    Cons

    Make sure you have someone in a support role who is fully trained on the phones, or support may have an end user confusedly poking away at a phone to troubleshoot an issue.

    The switch from ShoreTel to Mitel has been a bit confusing for all the branding, but they've tried to make it as seemless as possible.

    Pros

    The system does well when you only have to receive calls and listen to voicemail. However, system gets very complicated when you want to use it for advance features

    Cons

    My company has Shoretel, I was surprised to see how the system is not user friendly. Features like call forwarding can take time to setup. Even the phones are not easy to navigate...I have used much simpler phones with great features.

    I get to do my job as a support agent without interuption for the most part, for a while we had alot of problems but now we seem to be doing good with no problems in the last couple of months.

    Pros

    usually on most days it works great, the call quality is good and their are no issues.
    i like the ease of use and it connects instantly. I like how it gives us options to break, without having to log out and the timer helps me know how long i have been on my break or lunch break,

    Cons

    sometimes we have issues with the phone still rings while we are still on a call with the customer and sometimes the customer cannot hear us when we are answering the phone and vice versa, the support people keep blaming it on our computers but it is clearly not our computers when we havent had these issues with our older system.

    Not consistent! Shuts down a lot, often hear things in the background, sometimes it will show me I missed a call but the call never rang.

    Easy to Use Phone System and Cost Effective

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality
    Quality
    Support
    Value for Money
    Pros

    I found this product to have a user-friendly interface when managing the phones in our organization. What I liked the most about the product is the ease in knowing which phone blocks are available for use, as well as the number of phone numbers available in that specific block. Additionally (unlike Cisco Call Manager) it shows the full phone number. This is VERY useful if you are forced to have different call blocks with different prefixes. Not to mention, the call communicator for each user was AMAZING. We could easily make calls to other extensions (or outside numbers) from our desktop using the communicator. Also, if you wanted to call someone in your organization, it will indicate if the person is available (green) or on a call (red). Also great for our call center that had a call queue available.

    Cons

    Nothing that I could think of that I liked least about the product. I think this is a very user friendly interface and we had no complaints when using.

    Our company uses Shortell and they are great. In all the years of using different providers they are hands down the best.

    Pros

    Shoretel is a very simple program, and gives you exactly what you need; integration with salesforce, easy dialing with a click, tracks the basics (length of a call, connects, outbound calls, inbound calls, and voicemails)

    Cons

    Shoretel crashed often (aka, once every two weeks) and the whole sales floor would have to stop calling, and sometimes it would miss calls.

    ShoreTel allows me to connect quickly and efficiently with candidates and colleagues.

    Pros

    ShoreTel Connect integrates seamlessly with our Salesforce databases, allowing me to quickly call candidates and clients by simply clicking the number on the screen. When making 100+ calls per day, this small quality of life assist is very welcome.

    Cons

    I have experienced some issues while attempting to use ShoreTel when not connected to our company's network. When connected via home/public Wi-Fi, there will be intermittent issues with maintaining a connection to ShoreTel.

    I like this system for its ease of use. We didn't require extensive training. It was more of a pick up and go experience.

    Cons

    Wish there was a guide for the icons on the phone. We cannot find it on the website. Also, in a work group there should be a feature to send a call to voicemail instead of the only options being answer or let it ring to the next person.

    There are times when the call quality is poor and calls drop. This has been happening less, but it still happens. The worst thing to say is "can you hear?"

    Once configured, the mitel system runs fine.

    Pros

    The mitel system is fairly simple to install It has a small foot print and has a very rich set of features.

    Cons

    The basic setup requires a good knowledge of phone systems. Simple tasks like setting a day and a night message are not simple click choices.

    Updates time-to-time has been problematic, but I feel that maybe more due to our tech side vs software issues. If your system isn't set up in a conventional manner it could potentially cause headaches

    Easy to make a call using computer keyboard and never to reach out the phone itself. Also good to track all voice mail and phone history.

    Cons

    Many functions are hidden on the phone and you will need to learn how to use them using manual. Buying phone accessories like headset is not directly from ShoreTel but their third party dealer.
