This is a great rebound from the trough of 2009.  Productivity gains have  fueled much of the recent rebound and leading companies are looking for more. Several years ago a leading manufacturing company, GE, asked Cisco to develop a new collaborative environment for distributed teams.

Leaders have implemented new  working environments, such as the  Cisco Active Collaboration Room.  Now there is a movement to bring  forward the next environment for team productivity, rapid decision making, and distributed collaboration.

Cisco’s Manufacturing & Energy Facebook page has launched!

January 26, 2012 at 10:17 am PST

Announcing the Cisco Manufaturing & Energy Facebook page!

Today we officially launch our Facebook page for Cisco Manufacturing & Energy.

We are launching this page for two main reasons:

First, we are expanding our blog platform and team. In addition to our original manufacturing industry team, we are adding thought leaders and experts from Cisco’s oil, gas, and energy teams.

Second, Facebook, as a social networking platform, is an excellent forum for discussion. It gives all users a simple environment in which to exchange ideas, articles, and opinions. It is where you will find videos, blogs, pictures and many other things related to the manufacturing, oil, gas, and energy industries.  It is also a place where new contacts and relationships can be made, so be sure to get involved and engaged!
