Why Do You ūmi?

We recently asked our family of users why they enjoy connecting with family and friends via Cisco ūmi? Here are the top reasons why they ūmi:

  • Stay Connected: The number one reason people love to use ūmi is because they can keep in touch with family, friends – old and new, and colleagues. Whether the person lives down the street or on the other side of the country, they come through your HDTV clearly and vividly, almost as if they were sitting in your own living room with you.
  • Get Involved in the Small Things: When mothers and fathers travel, they use ūmi to participate in activities with their children, such as helping with homework, reading a book and discussing what their day was like.
  • Get Involved in the Large Things: Moms and dads, grandmothers and grandfathers can use ūmi to meet the next generation of family members and watch them grow, walk, talk and laugh.
