Allows users to join online meetings and view shared documents directly from smartphones
Cisco has unveiled new WebEx Meeting center application for BlackBerry smartphones which gives business users the flexibility to join online meetings and view shared documents and desktops directly from their smartphones.
According to Cisco, the WebEx meeting center application allows meeting participants to use elements such as the menu option to access features and shortcuts for fast navigation while they are on the go. The app also gives meeting hosts the flexibility to start a scheduled meeting that has previously been scheduled on a computer and to pass presenter control on to another attendee participating from a computer.
Cisco said that the in-meeting experience on BlackBerry smartphones allows participants to view shared presentations, applications and desktops with live annotations.In addition, BlackBerry smartphone users can see the attendee list, find out who’s talking at a particular time, and chat privately with one or all of the attendees.
Jeff McDowell, senior vice president, Business Segment Marketing and Alliances at Research In Motion,said: WebEx and the BlackBerry solution are both broadly deployed in the enterprise, which makes the Cisco WebEx meeting center application for BlackBerry smartphones a natural fit for businesses today.
Together, Cisco WebEx Meeting Center and BlackBerry smartphones provide a highly secure, rich, and intuitive experience for mobile business users.
