We Promise You Won’t Miss Your Old Chat Platform

The work at Liberty Technology is fast paced. Tickets are created, triaged, and escalated every minute. And it’s essential that each department – from finance to projects – stay connected. In our workplace, we have to be able to chat with whomever we need to, whenever we need to. When it comes to interoffice chat software, we’ve pretty much tried it all. There was Skype, Jabber, pretty sure something from Google, and Slack. When Cisco introduced Spark, we quickly became ambassadors, and eventually left Slack completely.

When Cisco announced the future of collaboration with messaging, calling, and meetings all branded under the Webex umbrella, we couldn’t wait to see what that would look like. Updates have been rolling out since May, and starting this week there will be a whole new look to Webex Meetings and Webex Events, making the experience even easier than before.

There are new crisp, clean changes to the video layout and better integration with your calendar. Hosting around 6 billion minutes of meetings per month, Webex understands how important video is to collaboration. This latest update maximizes screen real estate for face-to-face HD video meetings, making sure everyone in the meeting stays engaged. You’ll also love the new control bar that makes it extremely simple to start or join a meeting. All the meeting tools you need are literally at your fingertips, with the option to quickly customize your view to your preferences. Learn more in this quick video.

For those of you who are already using the Cisco Webex platform, make your auto-update is on to see changes rolling out by July 27. The rest of you may be wondering why you would leave the comfort of your current chat solution, and while we could answer this several ways, the latest Gartner Peer Insights reports that Cisco’s meeting and collaboration solutions are the number one choice among end-users across all industries. The entire team at Liberty will tell you that Webex allows us to communicate effectively from all over the world (and we don’t miss Slack or Skype one bit), but if you don’t believe us, listen to what your peers have to say.

You’ll want to experience all that these new releases have to offer, so now is the time to reach out to our team to get you set up with a free, no-risk trial. Try Cisco Webex and see what all the fuss is about.
