Webex empowers a remote workforce.

Working from home is now a reality for countless people across the country. The ability to telecommute with a unified communications (UC) platform such as Webex makes it simple for employees to collaborate on multiple projects without having to be in the same room.

Webex is one of the leading UC platforms available that enable people to collaborate through online video sessions, instant messaging, whiteboarding, and file-sharing services. Best of all, Webex pricing is tiered so you only pay for the functions you need.

Here are a few of the top reasons to consider Webex to keep your remote workforce connected.

1. Webex is Easy to Use

One of the many advantages of using Webex is that it's user-friendly without requiring a lot of technical expertise. For example:

  • A remote employee can easily join a meeting with only a click of the button.
  • The global search feature makes it easy to find instant messages, contacts, or files without ever leaving Webex.
  • When you integrate Webex with Microsoft Outlook, you're able to schedule calls and meetings from either program without bouncing back and forth.

2. Webex Promotes Productivity

Finding ways to maintain productivity is critical for anyone who works from home. Webex makes it simple for employees to work together and stay in communication on all of their ongoing projects. Allowing employees to work from home is a great way to keep your business fully operational during even the most challenging times.

3. Webex Enhances Communication

Being able to easily communicate with employees working from home is critical to sustaining a productive environment. Remote employees can communicate in a variety of ways, such as through video chat or instant messaging. Your business can also schedule meetings automatically for a certain time or day of the week. Webex also gives you the option to record each video call, which is helpful when you need to share the discussion with others that couldn’t attend the meeting in real-time. 

4. Webex Keeps Teams Connected

Webex also makes it easy for you to bring your entire team together on video chat. You can include up to 1,000 participants (depending on subscription level), or you can choose to have a one-on-one meeting. All of the videos are in high-definition, which makes it easy for you to communicate and work together without worrying about technical issues.

5. Webex Works Everywhere

One of the top benefits of using Webex is that it is compatible with a wide range of devices. Webex works flawlessly on all operating systems and platforms, including PC, Mac, iOS, Linux, and Android. This additional flexibility makes it much simpler for your entire team to work remotely without needing to have the same operating system or purchase additional equipment.

6. Webex is Secure

Cisco is serious about security. So much so that they developed the the Cisco Secure Development Lifecycle to ensure the resiliency and trustworthiness of all their products. What that means for you is that you can deploy all of the great Webex tools with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your data, communications, and files are protected by a multilayer security protocol that is validated and continuously monitored to comply with the most stringent internal and third-party industry standards. 

Webex, Only Better

Understanding how to effectively empower and engage a remote workforce is essential in today's super-competitive hiring market. The pandemic caused the number of people telecommuting to skyrocket, and now many of those workers are reluctant to return to a traditional office environment. Fortunately, Webex is tailor-made for remote and hybrid working, so you can allow your team to work whenever, however, and wherever they are most productive — with no disruption to your business!
