Cisco Spark: A Cloud-Based Business Collaboration Service
Communication is about more than simply being able to dial or send a message to team members or customers. It’s about being able to message, meet, and call instantly in a way that strengthens relationships and increases productivity.
Bring your teams together in a place that makes it easy to keep people and work connected. Cisco Spark offers a complete business collaboration service that enables you to message, meet, and call anyone, anywhere, at any time. The service is hosted by Cisco and sold by DataVox, a Cisco Gold and Master Collaboration partner.
Instead of just calling or instant messaging, Spark makes persistent business messaging the center experience of all your communications and where all of your work lives. You are never more than one click from initiating and receiving voice and video calls, joining meetings, scheduling meetings, and more, all with the historical context of team and one-to-one interactions including shared files and persistent messages. Three main components, message, meeting, and call, all come together in one simple interface to form a single experience.
