Case Study: Forbes Czech Republic

Keeping the presses running with Cisco Webex

Global media company Forbes delivers news on business, investing, technology, entrepreneurship, leadership, and lifestyle. The Forbes Czech Republic operation relies on Cisco Webex to help them collaborate on around-the-clock news during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Summary

Challenges

  • The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the way teams communicated with each other
  • Needed to continue publishing the magazine, despite an uneasy situation
  • Needed to deliver around-the-clock content on the forbes.cz digital platform

Results

  • Cisco Webex enables real-time communication within and across teams for timely news delivery
  • Offices are connected online across three countries: Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary
  • Zero interruption to magazine publishing schedule
  • Online subscriptions to forbes.cz rose to one million users, a 200 percent increase from 2019

What they’re saying

We are planning to continue using online communication going forward because it is a simpler and faster solution to share information within the team, within the editorial department, within the sales department. It simplifies both the planning of the magazine production and creating content for forbes.cz.
