Cisco Continues Its Leadership in Driving Flexibility and Productivity for Telepresence End Users

April 20, 2012 - 0 Comments

Productivity and flexibility are key words that we hear many times in the work place.

What do they mean to IT administrators in relationship to telepresence meeting room scheduling? In the past this was a complicated process that meant that Microsoft Exchange server had to be taken off line to do this type of upgrade. Now with a new feature capability from Cisco TelePresence TMSXE, IT administrators can install TMSXE quickly and easily with step by step instructions without impacting Microsoft Exchange during the upgrade. This means there is no impact to end-user’s productivity because the upgrade is seamless and transparent to them. TMSXE continues to empower end users by giving them more control and flexibility to schedule telepresence meeting rooms when and where they need without needing IT support to do so. TMSXE frees up IT resources to focus on more pressing issues vs. having to be the telepresence meeting room scheduler for an organization.

What else does this mean for users? There is no learning curve because users are familiar with scheduling capabilities inherent in Microsoft Outlook. So user acceptance is easier because steps to schedule telepresence meeting rooms are the same as scheduling a meeting through Outlook. This helps support rapid acceptance of telepresence services as an effective business tool. Telepresence can help drive productivity, collaboration and increase competitiveness to respond to market trends and changes rapidly and efficiently through any time communication that is flexible and now more accessible to end users within an organization deploying TMSXE as part of their telepresence solution.

For more information on TMSXE or to see a demonstration of this product contact your local Cisco account manager.

TMSXE supports scheduling of Cisco TelePresence systems with Microsoft Outlook 2007 and 2010.
