Click in and take a look. You will see the host’s location and how many people are participating in the meeting. Some people are even in a one-person meeting, which I imagine means they are recording content to share with others or post on their website.

Whether you work at a specialty boutique firm or a large global enterprise, video is having a profound impact on the way we do business in today’s digitally connected world. Nowhere is this more visible than at a global architecture firm like Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF).
Headquartered in New York City with offices in six global locations, KPF exemplifies the workplace of the future—that is, one that allows virtual teams to work together anytime, anywhere. My Cisco co-worker Diane Davidson recently had the pleasure of visiting KPF’s New York office, where she was able to see their collaboration infrastructure firsthand. Not only do they have an environment that allows project teams to work together from any location at anytime, they also have video on every end point—from desktop video phones, laptops, tablets and smart phones to room systems. According to James Brogan, AIA Director, Firmwide Technology, that’s because face-to-face communication is absolutely critical to the firm’s success.
Did you know that WebEx has 4.8 million registered users in 225 countries? Or that more than 310,000 WebEx meetings take place every day? As a regular WebEx user myself, stats like those definitely catch my notice. And, I wonder how many plane trips (and trips to the office) are avoided as a result of using WebEx.
With its easy access on laptops, smartphones, and tablets like the Cius or the iPad, plus desktop sharing capabilities, and video to help see one another face-to-face, WebEx truly is a global collaboration tool. See what these customers have to say about how WebEx has changed the way that they conduct meetings.
