August 25, 2011 - 2 Comments

Here’s a Thursday quick quiz: What integrates social networking, voice, video, and unified communications into one workspace? Is it:

a)    Facebook
b)    Microsoft Office
c)    Cisco Quad

If you chose “c” then go get yourself an ice cream cone! But seriously, Cisco Quad, just like your ice cream cone, is pretty sweet—it’s a powerful enterprise platform that can improve business productivity, and accelerate growth by bringing content, business applications, communications, and enterprise social software into a single, intuitive experience.

So how does it work? Quad is a truly unified communications platform, with blogs and wikis. Users can also schedule meetings and engage in instant messaging, voice, and video communication, as well as manage and share documents.

Ready to leverage Quad at your own office? Right now, partners can take advantage of the QuadNow program, which offers Quad at a significant discount—95% off the list price.

Read on for details on the program, as well as to watch a demo of how Quad works.

  1. I think that impression is a fair account for an individual or organization early on the adoption curve. However, for me and my extended teams,the Quad features and format provide an accelerated, rich, and interactive way to both manage and develop complex materials, and securely disseminate them for further review.

  2. After watching the video I still did not understand what corporate problems Quad was solving and why I need it. It appears, at this point, to be a nice to have toy with mundane information that is looking for a problem to solve.

    If I am wrong, please tell me.
