On the fast track to help our customers on their hybrid work journey
What an incredibly exciting month this has been for Webex! We unveiled the all new Webex Suite at our launch event, Hybrid Work. Made Real, on June 8 along with the kickoff of our amazing rebrand campaign. Since then, we’ve seen a wave of global coverage and analyst commentary about our new innovations for hybrid work.
“Cisco seems hyper-focused on crafting a superb user experience for hybrid work, which will be essential because it wants to be the most loved brand in collaboration.” – Forbes Senior Contributing Editor Patrick Moorhead
One thing was clear in all that we accomplished in June – we are passionate about ensuring our customers are successful as they navigate the new world of hybrid work. We believe the future of work will require a different approach – one that empowers inclusivity and puts people and their experiences first.
Unveiling the new Webex by Cisco brand
Our new brand tells a story that connects with new end-users, and reflects a modern, edgier look and feel, and a new logo. But this goes way beyond the visual ID of a brand. Our brand is how we show up in the world and how our customers will experience Webex.
We are dedicated to ensuring we provide a simple, delightful user experience in every interaction our customers have with Webex: in our products that are used by millions of customers, in our website that reaches millions of readers, and in the hundreds of presentations we deliver to live and virtual audiences of all sizes.
Our new logo was inspired by our guiding design principle of inclusion, a core value that is at the heart of everything we do. And we introduced Webex by Cisco. For details on the rebrand, read more here.
