On June 8 we hosted an extraordinary virtual event- Hybrid Work. Made Real. Through customer stories, product demos, and an impressive lineup of speakers we showed the world our incredible pace of innovation which is accelerating our mission to make Webex experiences 10x better than in person.  And we are just getting started.  I am thrilled to amplify our innovation and commitment to lead the hybrid workspace alongside our partners with a recap of the big takeaways from the event.

The future of work is hybrid

The data is hard to ignore.  As employees head back to the office, 77 percent will embrace a flexible style and 98 percent of meetings will include at least one remote participant.  Our customers must adapt to the best hybrid work model for their organization which as Jeetu Patel stated, will require leadership, culture, a people-first mindset – and the right technology.  The right technology must be flexible, inclusive, supportive, secure and managed.  Check out Jeetu’s blog for more on what you need to succeed with hybrid work.

Introducing the Webex Suite

We know that simplicity equals profitability for our partners and the new Webex Suite showcases our commitment to arming you with the most innovative, simple, and complete solution to power hybrid work. The Webex Suite is the world’s first best-of-breed hybrid work solution for calling, meetings, messaging, polling/Slido, events and it is extensible to future innovation.  This highly competitive and comprehensive offer simplifies selling across the portfolio with up to 40 percent less cost than a-la-carte solutions.

Please review Chris Barwick’s Blog, “Introducing the Webex Suite: The first, best-of breed suite for hybrid work”  and visit SalesConnect  to learn more about the offer and how you can take advantage of this compelling Webex Suite value today via an EA through Flex 3.0.

In addition to the Webex Suite, our astonishingly elegant device portfolio is a massive differentiator.  We recently announced competitive discounts for Webex Devices (up to 50 percent off) when purchased with the Webex Suite. We have added the Webex Desk to our device portfolio to bring 10x better experiences to our customers via an accessible price point.

The new Webex brand unveiled

The new Webex brand we unveiled has been reinvented to reflect the powerful purpose and value Webex brings to the market, our customers and people’s lives. Be sure to leverage the new Webex brand resources in your co-marketing campaigns and sales material.


In summary, I want you to feel confident that our approach is partner first and we are maniacally focused on bringing you the most innovative technology, simplest offers, and compelling profitability to bring the future of work to your customers.
