New Cisco WebEx Meetings Beta + Free Trial for Partners = More Effective Collaboration from Anywhere

- January 13, 2012 - 8 Comments

The beach. An airport. The car. What do these places have in common? They’re all places you can hold a meeting.

As workforces become increasingly mobile, WebEx is the tool that more and more customers (and partners) use to ensure that productivity doesn’t decrease just because you’re not at the office.

And now, with a new beta version of Cisco WebEx Meetings and a free trial for partners, the possibilities are endless. By integrating all of the collaboration tools and tasks you need for your meetings, you can now host your team meetings from your car, attend a sales forecast presentation from the airport, or share slides from the beach. Having the flexibility to work with your colleagues, even when you can’t be at work, allows you to maintain productivity and collaborate more effectively.

Watch this video to see how Cisco WebEx Meetings can help you collaborate more effectively.

A convenient tool like this must come with a hefty price tag, right? Wrong! For a limited time only, Cisco WebEx Meetings beta is being offered to partners free of charge until the product becomes generally available.

Keep reading to find out how you can get Cisco WebEx Meetings beta for free and check out the great ways you can share ideas and materials before, during, and after your meeting.

  • Access agenda, files, recordings, meetings notes, and comments from all your meetings in one place.
  • Share any document or application–even your desktop.
  • Try high-definition video in your meetings–it’s like having everyone in the same room!
  • See who’s online to chat and get quick updates.

  1. I can confirm that Ipad app doesn't work at all. Any solution?

    • Hi - Regarding the iPad WebEx app. Make sure you uninstall and reinstall. iPhone is direct upgrade but on the iPad there is the extra step "If you use WebEx on your iPad, please make sure to *REMOVE* the ‘WebEx for iPad’ app before you install this new universal app onto your iPad" Also note if you are trying to tie it to WebEx Meetings Beta mentioned above - that is not fully supported yet in this Beta and will be fully supporting in upcoming Beta code shortly.

  2. The iPad application doesn't seem to work anymore after the upgrade. Anyone else with the same problem?

  3. Cisco WebEx, its a no brainer for all our conf calls, meetings and online technical support.
