Online Meetings and Video Conferencing Solutions
While meetings are notorious time-wasters, people still find themselves in them all the time. How much of that time is being wasted?
- 37% of the average knowledge worker’s time is spent in meetings*
- 10 min+ is the average delay in starting a meeting due to technology glitches*
- 70% of people admit to multi-tasking during meetings
Unfortunately, starting late is a vicious cycle. People show up late, there isn’t enough time to cover everything, and the meeting is rushed. No one wants to repeat the experience in a follow-up meeting, so the project doesn’t benefit from a collaborative input. Every minute you’re paying people to be unproductive, you’re not only wasting money, but you’re also wasting the opportunity to make progress on a project. But what can you do?
Enter Cisco Webex Meeting and video conferencing solutions.
With a properly implemented and managed Cisco Webex Meetings or Cisco Webex Teams solution, your business will outperform these disheartening communication statistics. Backed by the professionals at Stack8, Cisco meeting solutions ensure that every meeting is a productive and collaborative work session. If you’re only using technology to give presentations and send electronic invites, you’re missing out on a massive opportunity to increase productivity.

8 ways Stack8 can increase your critical meeting capabilities with Cisco Webex
What size room do you need, for how long? Do you even need a room, or can the meeting be virtual? Let a scheduler find the best space automatically. If something changes, the system will automatically notify attendees. No more wandering the halls looking for a room change note taped to the door.
Centralized resources makes being unprepared inexcusable
Meetings shouldn’t be a group read-along. Everyone should have access to the information they need in advance, without relying on error-prone tools and systems. Get rid of all the excuses: “I didn’t get the attachment, I wasn’t cc’d…”
By sharing all content relevant to the meeting in one central Cisco Webex Teams meetings space, everyone has access to it ahead of time, and productivity starts before the meeting. With a properly implemented Cisco meetings solution, you can enforce an expectation of preparedness.
Let your mobile workforce join easily, from anywhere
Cisco made it really easy to join a meeting: click the green button.
That’s it! Whether people are in a huddle space at the office or in a remote location, using a desktop computer or a mobile device, they can join from anywhere on any device in one click. If they’re late, it’s because of them, not the technology.
Take action before, during, and after the meeting
Starting on time is only half of the battle. Making sure work gets done during and after the meeting is essential to maximize meeting productivity.
Active collaboration prevents multitasking by engaging people in productive work during the meeting. Solve problems and produce tangible outcomes on the spot instead of assigning everyone a pile of action items to do later.
Capture ideas on files, messages, and whiteboards and share with everyone immediately after the meeting.
Every meeting people accept is automatically added to their calendar, with a reminder set to automatically pop up. No more “forgetting.”
Share host duties
Make it easy for different people to run their own part of the meeting by switching host duties seamlessly, with no delays.
There’s no reason to not trust the system and test it before every meeting to make sure everything is okay. When it’s set up properly, the Cisco Webex is so intuitive, anyone can easily use it as a self-service system. Even the least technical person in your company should be fully confident that your meetings solution will work right away, with the audio and video capabilities they need.
Implement video as a best practice
Keep everyone focused with their full attention, communicating with people, not devices by implementing video as a best practice.
Using video conferencing enables all participants to communicate both verbally and non-verbally regardless of the attendee’s location as if they were sitting across from one another.
