Enhancement to WebEx platform

Cisco’s CEO Chuck Robbins stated, “We announced the launch of WebEx teams bringing together meetings, calling and teamwork into an integrated experience as part of the WebEx platform. In Q4, we introduced major new enhancements to the platform including a new user designed for WebEx meetings and a new solution with Google, combining their contact center AI service with a WebEx platform.”

These partnerships with Google (GOOG) (GOOGL) could help Cisco to offer products and solutions to a larger customer base. Over 3 million customer service agents use Cisco’s contact center software, and this integration with Google can leverage data from AI (artificial intelligence) and help to automate responses in call centers.
