Video has changed the way people collaborate. Today, you no longer need to get in trains or planes to make it to an important meeting, just having a video conferencing solution in your PC (Google Hangouts, Zoom, Webex, Skype) allows you to establish a high-quality communication with a seamless video collaboration experience.
However, as businesses grow, the workplace needs to evolve. Teams get larger and more people are needed to collaborate and get things done. Here is where companies start considering making the investment in video conferencing devices that can be deployed in meeting rooms. Budget constraints play a role in many organizations where the main concern when purchasing a video conferencing solution is how easy it is to implement and are my users going to actively use it?
Let's be clear, as an IT manager you want to make sure that every dollar you invest especially in collaboration technologies is well used and that your internal teams adopt the technology. Cisco has heard all of these concerns, and designed the Cisco Webex Room devices to be cost-effective and easy to integrate with existing technologies you might already have. With the user experience like that of an iPad, Webex provides a great user experience, practically guaranteeing that your co-workers will adopt the video collaboration technology.

Why bother with video collaboration technology?
This is a competitive market, regardless of your industry leveraging technology to facilitate people's work has proved to be key when enhancing productivity. Technology is no longer simply nice to have– it's expected.
When you bring new and talented employees they expect to have the flexibility and life-work balance, they expect to have at least a centralized way to communicate with their teams by phone, video, and IM. But perhaps what's most important is how the newest technologies have been developed around people, meaning manufacturers such as Cisco have recognized the way people work and what they expect from technology to develop tools that are user-friendly providing a seamless experience.
Modern technology is your way to gain and retain talent as it's a vehicle for collaboration, productivity, and ultimate innovation.
