Scheduling a collaboration meeting is now easier than ever with Cisco TelePresence Management Suite (TMS). With Cisco TMS, users can schedule video meetings as they do any other meeting through Microsoft Outlook. TMS extends the reach of Microsoft Exchange to include video meeting rooms as resources that can be scheduled along with other details for the meeting including attendees, notes, etc. TMS extends the scheduling capabilities of Microsoft Outlook to a company’s telepresence systems with a touch of a button.

The trend to increase workforce mobility has accelerated, more customers are proactively empowering employees to work wherever and whenever they have access, to increase productivity and streamline their business. This growing number of employees being set up with video-enabled tablet devices and video endpoints however has added to the burden of IT management; especially massive user, device and phone book provisioning from hundreds of devices to tens of thousands of devices—and across geographic regions and firewalls.
Specifically for telepresence, IT resources have been focused on helping an increasing number of mobile and remote users configure and personalize their devices, endpoints settings, and preferences. Fueled by this demand, Cisco is excited to introduce Cisco TelePresence Provisioning 2.0.
