“Webex” stands for “meeting”. The real-time meeting solution, which manages more than 6 billion minutes in meetings each month, evolves again. In line with workers’ demands. Facilitating the collaboration of thecompanies and the realization of daily tasks.
Cisco has announced the convergence of Cisco Spark and Cisco Webex platforms. The result is a new meeting application (Webex Meetings) and a new team collaboration application called Webex Teams (formerly Cisco Spark). Cisco’s award-winning video devices are also added to this new converged platform. In addition to a new hardware device that turns any space with a TV into a Webex meeting room. Everything is easier to buy. And the use of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning is reinforced, which will greatly optimize and transform meetings.
Webex completely renovated
The new Webex Meetings solution prioritizes video, encouraging usersto use thecamera. Seeing and being seen is critical to good teamwork. Users will not only see the presentation, but all the colleagues. In sharp planes. Regardless of whether the connection is made from the laptop, a Cisco video device, or the mobile phone.
And because it is cloud-based, WebEx’s 100 million users on a global scale will not have to do anything. They will simply receive the update in the coming months.
