A business collaboration app, Project Squared has been introduced by Cisco. The app combines chat, audio, video, multi-party meetings and content sharing in a single experience that supports the demanding collaboration needs of modern teams.
Project Squared is built upon the Cisco Collaboration Cloud, a new, next-generation platform aligned with Cisco’s Intercloud strategy, to enable these best-in-class collaboration experiences. In building the Cisco Collaboration Cloud platform, Cisco leveraged the learnings and technologies from its market-leading web conferencing, video telepresence, unified communications, and voice products.
It gives teams a place to work together, virtually. Teams can download Project Squared, start a room on any topic, and invite others inside or outside the organization to join simply by entering their name or e-mail address. Once in the room, team members can securely share messages, post files, and start voice and video calls. Files are rendered in the cloud and viewable immediately alongside messages–with no download required.
Project Squared also works on web browsers, so users can log in from any computer-no VPN or plugins required. It leverages mobile notifications so team members are always reachable and users stay connected to important content and messages from anywhere.
It also delivers enterprise IT security through the Cisco Collaboration Cloud platform, which provides end-to-end content encryption.
Rowan Trollope, SVP/GM, Collaboration Technology Group, Cisco, said, “We created Project Squared and the Cisco Collaboration Cloud platform to deliver on our dream to transform the collaboration experience, making it easy to stay constantly connected to the people, projects and ideas that matter most. We have lots of ideas on how to continue to enhance the Project Squared experience, and we are on a mission to keep integrating with important business tools so that your rooms truly help you do your best work.”
