Webex Suite: The ultimate workplace tool for collaborating and connecting

Thousands are attending Enterprise Connect 2024 this week in Orlando to witness the latest innovations across AI, collaboration, and customer experience. For Webex, this week is packed with exciting launches, informative sessions, and interactive demos. Let’s see how these innovations can unlock new experiences for you to collaborate and elevate teamwork across the globe.

AI is changing the way we work together, and Webex has been at the forefront with AI innovations such as AI Assistant, award-winning background noise cancelation, real-time translations, and more. While the underlying technology is important, we focus on the experiences the technology delivers. With pervasive AI-powered features built-in across the Webex Platform, Cisco AI Assistant for Webex and Contact Center enables incredible employee and customer experiences by working silently in the background.

Webex Suite: AI-powered Collaboration

Webex Suite is already purpose-built for hybrid work and provides exceptional value, world-class user experiences, and incredible audio/video no matter your industry or work style. We are now supercharging Webex Suite by bringing an AI Assistant that powers experiences across the entire Webex platform including meetings, messaging, polling, video messaging, Control Hub, and more.

The AI Assistant that catches you up

When in a meeting, you no longer have to worry about stepping away and missing the conversation. With the AI Assistant, you can now catch up on the discussion with personalized highlights and action items once you’re back at your computer. You can even ask the AI Assistant if your name was mentioned in the conversation while you were away so you can stay informed and eliminate any communication gaps.

The AI Assistant that summarizes for you

If you’re short on time and have a mountain of chat messages to catch up on, you can leverage the AI Assistant to summarize one or multiple chat threads within seconds, enabling you to quickly get caught up and respond more efficiently to requests. These summaries are personalized to you and organized by the most pressing action items.

The AI Assistant that writes for you

The AI Assistant is now able to recommend changes to your message tone, format, phrasing, and allowing you to preview before sending so you can make sure your message always reflects your intention and is suited for your audience.

The AI Assistant that translates for you

You can now overcome language barriers and read conversations and chats in your preferred language. With AI Assistant, you can translate messages into 100+ languages before sending.

The AI Assistant that finds answers for you

You no longer have to scroll through spaces to find the file or a specific message that was previously shared. The AI Assistant will now provide powerful search allowing you to easily find anything from documents, conversation topics, and content shared in the Webex app. And the results respect existing permissions to only include information and content that you already have permission to access.

Webex app in the all-new Ford & Lincoln digital experience

We continue to offer flexibility and freedom of choice to work from anywhere. Today, we announced that the Webex app is now available on select Ford and Lincoln vehicles and provides the same immersive Webex experience users expect, with the flexibility and functionality needed to make on-the-go collaboration effortless. Webex is the first to introduce immersive meetings and audio calling in the Ford and Lincoln Digital Experience. Users can join calls or meetings directly from the in-car touchscreen without needing a smartphone or mobile device. And, with the benefit of Webex’s AI background noise removal feature, you can hear and be heard clearly. Learn more here.

Webex Calling Innovations

Calling remains central to connecting customers, partners, and prospects. Webex Calling provides a modern, complete, and reliable business phone system to the global customer base. At Enterprise Connect 2024 we introduced several innovations that make it easier for businesses to elevate their collaboration strategy with Webex Calling.

We’re excited to announce that Webex Calling now has over 14 million users across 150+ markets globally. Learn how you can plan a future-proof collaboration strategy with Cisco UCM 15 or Webex Calling at our upcoming webinar on April 9.

Webex Customer Experience Essentials is now generally available

Our all-new Customer Experience Essentials offer bridges the gap between UCaaS and CCaaS by combining the enterprise-grade Webex Calling experience with an essential selection of contact center tools – all in the easy-to-use Webex app. Available at a fraction of the cost of separate calling and contact center solutions, Customer Experience Essentials enables businesses to empower any employee to enhance the customer experience. It’s great for regional branch offices, internal help desks, and growing teams or businesses seeking a cost-efficient customer experience solution. Learn how Customer Experience Essentials will help your business delight customers and reduce costs in our upcoming webinar on April 17.

AI Call summaries

Never forget the details of an important conversation with Call summaries. Webex Calling will soon include on-demand native call recording, available in CY Q2 2024. Our AI-powered Call summaries automatically summarize key points in your conversations so you can quickly get caught up. Call summaries will be available for beta testing in late CY Q2 2024.

Calling dock

Our new Calling dock provides quick access to powerful calling features like the multi-call window, notifications, settings, and more. You can place the Calling dock around the sides of your desktop so it’s always there when you need it, you never miss an important call, and multi-task with ease. The Calling dock also works with Webex Calling for Microsoft Teams and will be available for beta testing in the coming weeks.

Expanded partner ecosystem

We’ve expanded Cloud Connect for Webex Calling partner ecosystem to include BRCK, Colt, Iristel, Nuwave, and Telefonica Global Services. Today we provide our customers with the flexibility to select from over 30 Certified Calling Providers around the world.

We’re also excited to announce that ASC and Eleveo are now Certified Recording Partners for Webex Calling. These partners help customers to make a smooth move to cloud calling and provide powerful features like AI summaries.

Webex Go with AT&T

Business mobile convergence is a hot topic at Enterprise Connect 2024 and we highlighted our partnership with AT&T Business at the event. Webex Go with AT&T delivers unrivaled mobility experiences by making your AT&T mobile phone number your identity across all Webex devices. See how Webex Go by AT&T will transform your business mobile convergence strategy by scheduling a demo here.

Webex Suite: Seamless integration with award-winning Cisco Devices

Webex Suite works seamlessly with our entire portfolio of devices designed to reduce the impact of distance for everyone, regardless of where they sit in the world. With powerful technology and AI-powered innovations across devices, you can get the most out of every meeting while remaining focused and engaged in the conversation.

We’re excited to bring these thoughtful innovations to you and continue to meet the evolving needs of our customers and improve your work efficiency so that you can get more done. I hope you start using these groundbreaking innovations across the Webex Suite, AI, Devices, and Calling. If you are ready to supercharge your business, reach out to Sales to request a demo or discuss your unique business needs.

As Enterprise Connect wraps up later today, we’re also gearing up to bring industry-leading innovations at Cisco Live US in June in Las Vegas and our flagship WebexOne event in October in Miami – save the dates and stay tuned for a lot more!
