Collaboration tools are changing the business of government. They're helping government employees connect with constituents, colleagues, and vendors more efficiently and with greater clarity, to simplify operations, reduce costs, and increase performance.
Collaboration applications support programs such as telework, connected justice, and telemedicine, to make resources more accessible and enhance the citizen experience.
The Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS) provides cloud-based, unified communications and collaboration applications within a highly secure, cloud-ready, virtualized platform under a centralized management system.
This model of delivering collaboration services helps government agencies mitigate technology risk, reduce upfront investments, and pay on a per-month basis. This gives them the benefits of new collaboration technology, while maintaining fiscal responsibility.
Cisco HCS gives government customers a choice of solutions tailored to their individual requirements, serving different segments:
- Cisco Hosted Solutions are delivered from the Cisco WebEx Cloud and offered by Cisco partners
- Partner Hosted Solutions allow partners to deploy collaboration solutions in virtualized (HCS) and multitenant (TPX) models
