Cisco has revealed that Webex Go Solution is now available on iOS and Android mobile devices in the UK.
The mobile-first app is designed to support hybrid workers on the go and ensure conversations are secure, compliant and private.
The platform, released in 2021 for users in the United States of Americaallows users to make and receive business calls using a smartphone’s native dialer instead of a softphone application.
Sonu Arora, director of product management for Webex Callingcommented, “Webex Go is a seamless way to deliver Webex Calling to the device your employees use most: their personal mobile phone.
“Webex Go is essential for businesses that need to support a hybrid workforce while ensuring conversations are secure, compliant, and private.
“We continue to receive great feedback from our launch in the United States and we are pleased to announce that Webex Go is now available in the United Kingdom on Apple iOS and Android mobile platforms.”
According to Cisco, mobile phones are essential devices to provide the flexibility and productivity needed to succeed in a hybrid work environment.
Webex Go ensures that employees are always available whether they are on the road, working from home or away from their desk.
The app is designed to enable businesses to rely on Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies to allow employees to use their mobile phones for business communications.
It means organizations can eliminate the cost of buying new phones and the inconvenience of separate personal and business devices.
Webex Go extends a user’s Webex Calling line to the second line on their personal mobile phone, allowing users to make business calls through a native calling experience they are used to.
Mobility is included in a Webex Calling license, so it’s easy to deploy Webex Go for employees.
In addition to the Webex Calling license, users need a Webex PSTN calling plan, a Webex Go cellular plan, and then a supported mobile device.
The Webex Go app can be added to an Apple iPhone XR or newer, a Samsung Galaxy S21 or newer, and Cisco has confirmed that Google Pixel support is coming soon.
Cisco puts a lot of focus on making hybrid work environments as successful as possible clear theme on WebexOne 2022.
At the event, Cisco announced updates to the Webex Suite, along with a new collaboration device and partnerships to expand the collaboration footprint.
According to Cisco, the innovations are designed to help customers navigate all the challenges they face as offices reopen and provide people with flexibility in their work patterns.
