Is it time for you to consider a more robust tool for enabling your teams to work together both in the office and remotely?
Cisco Jabber and Cisco Webex may be just the tools you’re looking for:
Jabber is a team messaging tool that allows your teams to meet online either as groups or individually. The tool is platform-independent and allows for Real-time Messaging, Screen sharing, Video Conferencing and Two-way Audio & Video.
Cisco Webex is more of a virtual conferencing platform that is designed for online presentations, webinars and group chats. In addition, to allowing chat functionality, the tool allows users to make presentations to the whole chat group with screen sharing functionality. Users are also able to virtually ‘raise a hand’ in order to gain the attention of the presenter and establish a dialogue with them.
Both tools allow for integrations with a wide range of office tools. However, Jabber integrates with tools such as Outlook, Sharepoint and SAP. On the other hand, Webex integrates with tools designed for a large audience such as Pardot, Zendesk and Docebo (to name just a few).
