The Ization Effect

Workforce Experience

For your customers to operate at their best, they need engaged employees who are innovative, productive and customer focused. Creating a positive workforce experience, which is the first of five pillars in the Cisco DNA (Digital Network Architecture) philosophy, makes up a critical component in what Cisco and Ingram Micro are calling the IZATION effect.

Businesses embracing next-gen workplace concepts and business practices improved their businesses in three areas:

Recruit and retain talent

To thrive in today’s fast-paced digital age, organizations need a central hub where employees can learn, exchange knowledge, innovate and grow together. Cutting-edge products like Cisco Spark Board—a touch-based three-in-one collaboration device—can help by taking the meeting room to the next level. With the Cisco Spark Board, customers can wirelessly present, whiteboard and conduct high-quality face-to-face interviews and conferences at the touch of a finger.

Offer modern, flexible, economic workspaces

The Cisco Workplace Design business offer provides a set of validated workspace templates, technologies and services that organizations can leverage to accelerate the design and build of collaborative workspaces. The Workplace Design business offer avoids the need for organizations to acquire, integrate and support complex standalone room technologies and instead provides seamlessly integrated technology that can be rapidly deployed, operated and experienced, such as Cisco Spark—a unified solution for all your customers’ communications, from always-on messaging to video calling, phones and videoconferencing rooms. This software also works seamlessly with Cisco Unified IP phones and Cisco WebEx conferencing solutions (e.g., Cisco WebEx Meeting Center, Training Center, Event Center and Support Center) to enable partners to create customized workspaces for each client.

Increase employee productivity

Communication is about more than simply being able to dial or send a message to employees or partners. It’s about being able to message, meet and call instantly in a way that strengthens relationships and increases productivity. And, when you use the Cisco Spark app, customers can connect to virtual teams outside the physical room, through the devices of their choice. Complementary Cisco solutions like Cisco Aironet access points with Mobility Express and Cisco Jabber drive productivity higher by making business class IP voice and video telephony available on employees’ mobile devices and providing real-time presence, instant messaging, desktop sharing and other conferencing capabilities for work teams.
