Quality Video Experiences on Any Device to Anyone
As the workforce becomes more mobile and distributed, leaders recognize the benefits and growing impact of video as a key part of business collaboration. Video is becoming more pervasive. Case in point: Today's desktop and mobile devices have a camera, if not two.
You can use video collaboration to improve communications, relationships, and productivity by helping people meet face-to-face over distances. This helps you:
- Improve decision making by reducing communications delay
- Build trust and understanding across time zones within cross-functional and diverse teams
- Reduce employee travel, real-estate costs, and environmental impact
- Encourage information sharing and knowledge building with employees, partners, and customers
It's all part of engagement - making it easy and natural for people to collaborate. Cisco is taking these interactions to the next level. Video collaboration experiences are available anywhere, and are as easy as voice. For many use cases, these experiences are better than being there.
