As someone with a first-hand view of the incredible work being done at Webex by Cisco, it’s easy for me to get excited about the bold innovations and features across our portfolio.
When industry leaders in collaboration technology like UC Today also recognize the value and strength of our products and services, it heightens my pride and excitement in a whole new way. I am thrilled about our recent wins from this year’s UC Awards in several categories, including Best UCaaS Provider, Best Meeting Room Product, and Best Endpoint Product. I am also proud and honored that they named me Collaboration Leader of the Year.
These awards are a testament to the dedication and hard work of our talented teams, whom I see pouring their hearts and energy into delivering the bold and innovative solutions that our customers love and that the world needs.
Being named the Best UCaaS Provider is an incredible achievement for our market-leading customer experience solutions.
These solutions enhance collaboration and the customer experience through an AI-enabled, globally available platform that is secure and private by design and managed centrally. We took hybrid work to a new level by centering the customer experience. Our UCaaS solutions make teams more productive, efficient, and equitable, requiring only an internet connection to access integrated communications like calling, meetings, messaging, asynchronous video messaging, polling, whiteboarding, webinars, and events into a single solution.
AI features make communication more intelligent, personalized, and inclusive for each user, with built-in meeting transcriptions, real-time translations, background noise removal, and more. Unified communications also help break down barriers in geography, language, personality, and work style so teams can include everyone everywhere.
The Cisco Room Kit EQ won in the Best Meeting Room Product category, showcasing what can be achieved when innovation and purposeful design combine.
This AI-powered collaboration solution eliminates meeting fatigue with next-generation room intelligence, simplifies setup with unique software experiences and human-centric design, and makes every meeting space a hub of inclusive collaboration. These improved work conditions deliver best-in-class experiences for employees and customers alike.
Interoperability is a critical need for every business. For a solution so rich in functionality, deploying, maintaining, and scaling to every workspace is easy. The Room Kit meets teams where they are rather than requiring them to work in entirely new ways because it is optimized for Webex meetings with powerful video interoperability with leading third-party meeting platforms, including Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Google.
The Cisco Video Phone 8875 took home the win in the Best Endpoint Product category. This smart desk phone lets users control how they collaborate with leading workplace features such as a 7-inch touchscreen, full high-definition video, AI-powered noise removal, hot desking, and the ability to join meetings with a single button.
I am incredibly humbled and honored to receive the Collaboration Leader of the Year award. My heart is filled with gratitude for this prestigious award, and I thank the UC Today team, judges, the tech community, and everyone who has supported and inspired me.
This recognition is possible because of the exceptional efforts and dedication of my amazing Webex Marketing and Customer Success team—it reflects their hard work and commitment to going above and beyond, making a true difference in the lives of the customers and communities we serve.
Above all, this recognition signifies the power of unity and collaboration in transforming how people connect and work together. We will continue to strive for excellence, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in unified collaboration and making a positive impact in the lives of our customers.
To date, our product and marketing teams have received many accolades for the incredible features and innovations they’ve delivered to our customers.
To say I am proud is an understatement. Working alongside the brilliant minds delivering these world-class solutions is a pleasure and a privilege. These awards are just a small taste of what we can do, and I look forward to our continued success.
