Content sharing and virtual desktop collaboration

The business landscape has changed, and companies must find ways to address the challenges of communication and collaboration. Individual genius has lost importance, and strong teams are the key to success. Many will tell you that team collaboration is the future for enterprise communications, and there is plenty to support this theory.

So what is collaboration in business?

Collaboration involves messaging, content sharing and real-time communication through voice, video and screen-sharing. There are many individual solutions available for each of these things by themselves, but choosing to utilise multiple platforms to collaborate can lead to chaos. There was a time when email was the one-stop shop for communications and collaboration, but the medium no longer possesses the power to meet our collaboration needs, and it neglects the human element entirely. With much more advanced technology available for collaboration, relying solely on email puts you at a disadvantage. It's time to choose a platform.

How to choose the right solution

If you look at what's available, you'll find yourself spoiled for choice when it comes to telecoms resources to facilitate better collaboration. But the more you compare, the more you'll find that it gets confusing, and different platforms emphasise different priorities. The best advice is to look for a balanced user experience.

Choosing the most comprehensive solution

Only Cisco WebEx Teams addresses all these questions and challenges. It's a cloud-delivered, mobile-first platform that gives users all the tools they need to collaborate through the modalities mentioned above. And everything is delivered in a single package, with a single management interface and built-in encryption that can be enhanced as needed.

Cisco blends the virtual experience with physical space, meaning your teams can collaborate effectively and efficiently both asynchronously and synchronously, wherever they are, whatever device they are using.

AT UCtel, we specialise in implementing Cisco WebEx Teams into different companies' IT infrastructure to deliver its full power for collaboration. If you'd like to learn more, please contact the UCtel team and we will be happy to answer your questions and discuss how we could put Cisco to work in your business.

How Cisco WebEx Teams can boost your employees innovation and collaboration

Email was never designed to be the primary tool of communication for a modern workforce. It's old, outdated and archaic, often leading to confusion and inefficiencies as employees try to chase documents, accidentally 'reply to all' or simply can't find that one, important email they're looking for.

Revolutionising the way you work

Cisco WebEx Teams is a revolutionary, powerful new way for your employees to collaborate and work effectively together in a centralised platform, easily sharing documents, making video calls and scheduling events for a seamless experience. It's way more than just a calendar or email alternative, however: it's simple to share your screen, search a comprehensive directory and see an entire team's conversation history at a glance.

The key benefits of Cisco WebEx

Switching to a collaborative environment has many benefits for the way you and your business operate. For one, your employees gain massive amounts of flexibility in how they work, able to easily share documents and hold conferences without worrying about the logistics of setting up a meeting. This increased workforce mobility could lead to boosted revenue and a re-energised commercial environment. It's also an enormous time saver, massively increasing operational efficiency and cutting out pointless administrative tasks.

Cisco WebEx teams allows you to focus on what really counts, making the tricky decisions any business faces in today's complex, dynamic working world. You also have the benefit of added security; all files are safely encrypted in a cloud-based environment, meaning they'll never be lost or corrupted - plus, you'll save money on data storage space.

New features and functionality in Cisco WebEx Teams

Cisco WebEx Teams is constantly evolving and new features and functionality are improving the experience for users all the time. Today at UCtel we're going to take a look at some of these updates and what they mean for you.

Changes to Webex Teams Installation - Windows

We changed how administrators deploy the Webex Teams app to fix an issue where incorrect libraries are loaded. If you installed the Webex Teams app version 3.0.8780.0 or later, then you must redeploy the latest version to replace the previous install. For more information, see Cisco Webex Teams Installation and Automatic Upgrade.

Improved Calendar and Meeting List Views - Windows and Mac

Improved calendar and meeting list views make it more clear when meetings are scheduled in a Webex Teams space. You’ll be able to quickly access the space from the meeting list.

Connect to Webex Devices using Wi-Fi - Windows and Mac

You can now use Wi-Fi to discover and connect to Webex devices, in addition to ultrasound. You'll have this option only if your administrator enables it for your organization using Webex Control Hub.

Require a PIN to Connect to Webex Devices - Windows and Mac

When manually connecting to a Webex device, a code displays on the device, and you're prompted to enter it in the Webex Teams app. This lets you verify that you're connecting to the right device.

Redesigned Workflow for Signing Up and Signing In to Webex Teams - Windows and Mac

We have simplified the process to signing up and signing in by condensing the steps required to get into Webex Teams.

Clearer Indication that External Users are in a Space - Windows and Mac

We've made it even easier to see when people from outside your organization are in a shared space. The message area has a yellow tint and border around it.

New Colors for Whiteboards - Mac

Add more creativity to your whiteboard designs with these new colors:
