Cisco Rebrands Collaboration Apps: Introducing WebEx Social and WebEx TelepresenceBy: Shawn Hess - June 19, 2012
Cisco’s Quad app has been rebranded as WebEx Social. Refinements to the app include a new unified post function that makes creating a post as easy as writing an email.
Users will now also be able to collaborate using any device they choose. New features they will notice include working in virtual teams, sharing knowledge, and find an expert.
The company has also rebranded their Cisco Callway, now to be called, WebEx Telepresence. Telepresence offers audio/video support for up to 1080HD video resolution, an online customer portal, and extended support for MX300/SX20. They found a way to provide more efficient ordering and bill pay for both customers and partners.
The idea behind the rebranding of the apps is to put together a stronger portfolio of instant message and web conferencing solutions. The WebEx brand name is positioned to entice IT professionals to choose Cisco products. Real-time cloud-based solutions like the WebEx apps will be available in early July.
