Cisco and Workplace partner to bring live engagement features to Webex video solutions
by Amelia Kirby
Workplace integrations with Webex video and hardware helps businesses increase reach and enhance employee engagement.
We’re delighted to announce that Cisco and Workplace have partnered to bring together Cisco’s secure video conferencing software and hardware with Workplace’s reach and engagement capabilities to connect people across the organization.
While some offices are reopening, a hybrid work environment with a mixture of physically present and remote employees is here to stay. This adds to the pressure on organizations to maintain connections and deliver authentic, transparent leadership across the workforce, wherever people are located.
Workplace and Cisco: partnering to power collaborative and engaging video experiences
With Workplace and Webex video software and hardware, leaders will be equipped with a secure and high-fidelity way to broadcast to anyone across their organization. Employees will also be able to engage in real-time through video, reactions, comments and Q&A, whether they are office-based, working from home or on the frontline.
“The beauty of this partnership is that we are delivering an end-to-end, video-first engagement solution, across both software and hardware,” said Cisco’s Senior VP of Security and Applications, Jeetu Patel. “With Workplace and Webex, we can offer a powerful solution that serves IT alongside HR and Comms leaders as well as Executive staff, to help them securely reach their entire work community from HQ to frontline.”
Karandeep Anand, VP of Workplace, added: “In just a single click, companies will be able to use Cisco's hardware and software to go live and connect directly with others – turning broadcast experiences into real conversations wherever they are.”
