It’s easy to get everyone on the same page by sharing your screen, document, spreadsheet, or application. Hosts can also record the meeting for later reference.

How likely are Cisco Collaboration organizations to recommend it? Ninety-one percent. That’s because Team Collaboration speeds up projects, solves business challenges, and builds better relationships.
