Cisco Webex Teams technology simplifies and streamlines collaboration among FAAC Group colleagues working in our company’s many offices around the world. This tool facilitates online meetings in particular but also handles messaging and internal calls.
FAAC’s partner in this recent technological step forward was the Italian company VEM Sistemi (https://vem.com/), who offered its expertise to create a digital workplace capable of breaking down the barriers of distance and creating remote link-ups between people, information and devices in a safe, reliable and integrated manner, anywhere and anytime.
Cisco Webex is an internationally distributed solution that offers a wide range of functions such as full-screen video conferencing and display modes with multiple feeds or side-by-side with screen sharing. You can switch from one speaker to another, share your desktop or an application, add notes on documents with other participants, outline ideas on a virtual whiteboard, organise and record meetings, or participate by smartphone or tablet.
The transition to the new technology was also accompanied by a change management procedure, which is always necessary when implementing global solutions for communication and cooperation. The goal identified and achieved was to develop a safe working environment that would lead to increased productivity and a competitive advantage for FAAC.
However, to make new technology perform optimally, it is important to have input from everyone who uses it. In matters of communication, it is a good idea to agree on some common rules, ranging from a common language to compliance with interlocutors’ timeframes and spaces. A digital meeting with a good outcome begins before the start of the videoconference and continues after the meeting has ended. And, in the case of a company like FAAC, the success of a meeting can result in a highly successful product.
