Cisco has announced a new free, downloadable Cisco WebEx Meeting Centre application for BlackBerry smartphones.
Cisco WebEx Meeting Centre for BlackBerry smartphones gives business users the flexibility and ease of joining online meetings, and viewing shared documents and desktops directly from their smartphones.
Users can now directly download the Cisco WebEx Meeting Centre application for BlackBerry smartphones from webex.com or on BlackBerry App World. Or, when a user clicks on the WebEx meeting URL from email or a calendar invitation on the supported models of BlackBerry smartphones, they will be prompted to download the application at that time.
When the user clicks on the meeting URL to join a Cisco WebEx online meeting from their BlackBerry smartphone, the WebEx audio conferencing system will call them back to join the meeting. When the user answers the audio call, the data portion of the meeting is automatically launched on their smartphones. The application also supports other audio configurations.
“WebEx and the BlackBerry solution are both broadly deployed in the enterprise, which makes the Cisco WebEx Meeting Centre application for BlackBerry smartphones a natural fit for businesses today,” said Jeff McDowell, senior vice president, business segment marketing and alliances at RIM. “Together, Cisco WebEx Meeting Center and BlackBerry smartphones provide a highly secure, rich, and intuitive experience for mobile business users.”
