In business, clear and rapid communication is always important, but it’s most important in healthcare, where saving minutes or even seconds can make all the difference. A growing number of healthcare organizations are adopting video conferencing to improve communications both internally and with patients. The potential benefits are huge.
Internal video conferencing and telepresence technology can help healthcare organizations better manage rapidly escalating costs, accelerate innovation, deliver high-quality care, and maximize the use of skilled resources. Doctor-patient videoconferencing has the potential to broaden access to healthcare, add convenience, and lower costs, according to a recent InformationWeek article examining the results of its 2013 Healthcare IT Priorities survey. (The survey found that 28% of respondents are already using some form of doctor-patient video communication.)

These days it’s pretty rare that my meetings include only the people in the room. I work in a global company and my co-workers are spread out across the world. We work successfully together any time and from wherever we are through video collaboration. Video isn’t just a nice bonus: 87% of remote users feel more connected to their team and process when using videoconferencing, according to a recent GigaOm report.
You have conference rooms. Adding video should be easy. We agree. And that’s a big part of the focus for our latest endpoint products, announced last month.
The Cisco MX Series endpoints turn meeting rooms into collaboration rooms. Our design philosophy is what we consider “Scandinavian simplicity meets Californian approachability.”
All these collaboration room systems were built on the same philosophy:
- Appealing design
- Easy installation
- Intuitive, consistent user interface
- Improved quality, performance
- New intelligent video collaboration experiences
This expansion in the MX Series means you can bring Read More »

In the world of product design, the best intertwine form and function. Design stalwarts Apple, Sony and BMW get it right; and we’re honored to be listed alongside them as Red Dot Award winners.
I’m proud to report that all the new Cisco video collaboration endpoints we unveiled during Enterprise Connect received the coveted Red Dot Award 2014 for product design:
This recognition is a rewarding validation for the no-compromise, design led approach we undertook when developing our newest video solutions. And just as important as the awards is the feedback I’ve received from the people who use our technology.
You let us know that you appreciate the attention to detail and unparalleled user experience. And our focus on harmonizing the technology with the human aspect of face-to-face communications. By combining Scandinavian minimalism with Californian approachability, I believe we’ve succeeded in letting the technology recede and emphasizing the connections between people. It’s about allowing people to connect with one another, anywhere, in a powerful way without distraction – from the browser to the boardroom.

My mission since joining Cisco Collaboration is to deliver unparalleled experiences across all of our products – in every pocket, office and conference room.
And, we are delivering on that mission. March 2014 has been an amazing month for Cisco Collaboration. We unveiled our newly designed video portfolio; revealed a second-to-none user experience that spans across the entire collaboration portfolio – from the browser to the boardroom; had a tremendous presence at Enterprise Connect, and that’s just the beginning…
I have even more exciting news to share. Our newly launched video products have been awarded six Red Dot Award 2014 for high design quality – an incredible validation of our design-led approach. The following Cisco Collaboration products all received the coveted Red Dot quality seal:

Today in my keynote at Enterprise Connect in Orlando, I talked about what really matters – the user experience with collaboration. And, when you look at the experience that’s offered today, and you talk to end users, you realize today’s tools do not match the way people want to work.
People today want the collaboration experience to be as good on the go as it is in the office. They want it to be simple, incredibly intuitive and work across just about any device they care to use, from the boardroom to the browser and everywhere in between.
Our mission is to get amazing yet affordable collaboration into the hands of more people. We are working on this every day. Our recent announcement—the single biggest refresh our video portfolio has ever seen—is just one example of how we’re doing that. But, we’re not just looking at how Cisco can change the game. We are always looking at other companies that have a similar mindset and trying to see how we can do great things together.
Today, I had the pleasure of being joined onstage by Rajen Sheth of Google. We announced an exciting collaboration that I think Read More »
