Cisco and workplace experience software company Appspace have announced a new partnership in which the Appspace platform will be integrated with Cisco Webex Control Hub, allowing Cisco Webex device users to use modern team communications and digital signage for free.
In marketing material, Appspace calls this a “new way to get started” using the company’s software. It allows Cisco Webex device users to enable Appspace Lite from within Webex Control Hub and access a free version of Appspace designed specifically for partner integrations.
When enabled, users get access to Appspace templates, channels, and ready-made content designed for a safe return to the office, remote work and wellbeing communications, according to the Appspace announcement.
Duke Skarda, chief technology officer at Appspace, said in a statement that companies will be able to enable digital signage with “just a few clicks.”
“But that’s just the beginning; the Appspace platform also provides space reservation tools and an employee app that works seamlessly with Cisco Webex,” Skarda said.
According to Appspace, the integration – available now with no additional costs – “immediately increases the value of hardware investments and provides employee communication opportunities for HR, corporate communications, marketing and other teams.”
And, the included Cisco Webex-specific content helps employees adopt devices and features.
“Our focus is to ensure wellbeing for employees, both at home and for a safe return to the office as part of our intelligent workplace solutions,” says Chris Bottger, workplace Experience strategist at Cisco. “Our customers are looking for better ways to make their people feel connected to the organization in the new hybrid workplace. The combination of Cisco Webex and the Appspace platform enables that journey to start with users informed from the home to the office.”
