“to make collaboration simple and easy to use” Kari Matteson
Glendale, CA (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
Many times people do not realize how much technology has changed. Not too long ago, before smartphones, people carried around old blackberries, accompanied by a number of other devices at the same time, such as a digital camera, a notepad and digital pen, an iPod, a GPS, a few spare memory cards and even a Palm Pilot. It is still shocking how in just a few years technology has changed everything. All the things people needed those devices for now exist in a single smartphone – making life simple and easy. This is called simplification, and it is used as a backdrop for collaboration technology strategy.
Mossic's mission statement “to make collaboration simple and easy to use” was inspired by the technological capabilities to simply interactive experiences. Even though the promise of today’s collaboration technology is to make life easier, people are often frustrated by the fact that the most sophisticated devices cannot seem to do the simplest things, such as starting a meeting on time, connecting with anyone anywhere, or sharing material easily. While technology companies compete to introduce the next new features, they overlook the one fundamental aspect: what their product should do really well.
Mossic started with the vision of delivering on this fundamental principal and bringing brilliant collaboration technology to everyone and everywhere: every room, every desk, and every pocket.
In March, Cisco introduced the products that bring collaboration into every room in the enterprise: the SX10, MX200, MX700, and MX800 endpoints. These products are all about great collaboration experiences: engagement, simplicity, affordability – and award-winning design.
Today, Cisco brings these elements to not only every room, but every desk, with the Cisco DX80. It is time to provide every worker—not just executives—with the tools that let everyone collaborate at a moment’s notice, without any technological constraints.
Today’s desktop collaboration experience is good for some and adequate for many; but it can be better. Mossic makes collaboration easier to see, easier to hear, and most importantly, easier to use. Additionally, it is time to clean up the desk! Because today’s typical desktop is cluttered with monitors, speakers, cameras, phones, keyboards, and PCs. Rather than creating an experience that enables productivity, technology creates a mess.
By bringing integrated, exceptional collaboration technology to the desk, employees will experience super-productive meetings without having to think about the technology… because it just works: simply, effectively, and seamlessly.
No-Compromise Desktop Collaboration
The Cisco DX80 allows the unification of desk technology the same way the smartphone freed people from carrying multiple devices around. Cisco DX80 was built without compromises. It is a touch-screen display, a superior-quality IP phone, a whiteboard, and a TelePresence. It is the portal into all the key engagements of work life. It has an amazing industrial design and is affordable – about the cost of a high quality desktop monitor.
This is not just a great communication device; it is a great collaboration experience. Having a purpose-built collaboration device on a desk is great, but it’s about more than the device. It would be transformational if it stopped there, but Mossic went further by incorporating Collaboration Meeting Room technology.
Today, Mossic is announcing the Cisco Collaboration Meeting Rooms (CMR) in the cloud. Building on on-premise CMR solution, this offers personal space in the cloud, extending the incredible power of TelePresence video with the scale and flexibility of WebEx cloud services.
The solution provides one phone number, one URL, and one PIN for personal, private cloud video collaboration space via an always-on service hosted by Cisco and available from Mossic Collaborate Now. This cloud-based offering will be available this fall.
This represents a transformation in connecting with people. People can use CMR when they want and how they want for instant or scheduled meetings, and for ad hoc interactions with anyone in a virtual room. It’s a highly scalable model for enterprise collaboration: always-on, pay-as-you go. There is no longer a need to schedule meetings, pre-provision, or reserve conference bridges. People tap to join any meeting, anywhere on any network, on any device, whether a Cisco video endpoint (like the DX80), any web browser and any mobile phone through WebEx, a standards-based video endpoint (Polycom), or even a soft client like Microsoft Lync.
Mossic Network Solutions was inspired and stimulated by positive experiences, which is why it strives for simplicity and excellence.
• Simplicity – so that people can focus on their jobs and the actual collaboration with one another; and
• Excellence – so that users can collaborate for hours without conferencing fatigue.
The promise of a great collaboration experience has never been about one device or one technology. It’s about connecting people by humanizing technology. It is about the quality of the work that can be done together, and the amazing things that can be created during collaboration.
Whether collaborating through video, telephony, meeting space, Medianet, Instant Message, Jabber, Mossic Network Solutions has the right solution.
