Cisco Case Study: FINRA

 FINRA

Cutting travel time and costs

Company: FINRA
Industry: Financial Services
Location: U.S.

Challenge

FINRA oversees all securities firms in the U.S. to make sure they’re operating openly and honestly. With employees spread all over the country, FINRA is constantly arranging complex conferences or traveling to locations that have secure connections.

The company wanted to make video meetings easier so that employees could focus on the content, instead of arranging travel logistics and IT support.

FINRA wanted to:

  • Reduce travel
  • Simplify video meetings
  • Increase employee productivity

Solution

With the Cisco Meeting Server’s interoperability and security features, FINRA was able to integrate its meeting-room systems with Skype for Business and cut costs by replacing audio and web conferencing services.

  • Cisco Meeting Server

Outcomes

  • Reduced travel and logistics costs
  • Easier collaboration between FINRA employees, partners, and member firms
  • Interoperability with Skype for Business

"Cisco Meeting Server has really helped to raise our profile."

Raj Pillai, Senior Director, FINRA
