“What is said in the room stays in the room.” is a statement Pam Brodt who is the President of the RoundTable Network uses quite frequently. A year ago she made the decision to incorporate Public Cisco TelePresence Suites. She has brought C-Level Executives (CISOs and CIROs) to a high level face to face roundtable event via Cisco’s public access collaboration tool. The prospect for some may have had some resistance. Trepidation did ensue due to the fact that the topic at hand was global financial data transactions. But once the connection was made between New York and London, the engagement value and productivity level hit successful marks. The resistance melted away as the group solved today’s global finance data compliance issues. All participants took away a sense of accomplishment and a goal with their agenda became a reality.
My conversation with Ms. Brodt reinforced the value of this video conferencing venue as a game changer. It was not only for her business but for her industry. Imagine if you will the precision that is taken for event logistics: people, place, and production. As the client noted, she has a perfectionist style of event management, she discovered the seamless approach to her Cisco technical contact had immediate one on one service. No multi-tier technical support or a mix bag of customer service malaise. The “one button connect” as the client defines her experience is a part of the Cisco TelePresence Public Suites solution, where the company provides a streamlined reservation process through an online portal or a support desk. Our reservation process is staffed by knowledgeable employees that are able to assist customers with scheduling and any other logistical services. It provides a complete business experience. Pam enjoys having one single point of contact for any questions or logistical support for her Roundtable Networks sessions. Additionally, customers like Pam who schedule a TP Public Suites session find the user experience both easy and intuitive as they enter the room. With Cisco’s One Button to Push technology, users in a Cisco TP room need only to push one button on the TP room phone to start the TP session, connecting to another TP endpoint or multiple endpoints. The attractive pay per use price point is the ultimate tool for an array of business activities, such as venture capital roundtable for the entrepreneur or global C-Level meetings.
The Public Cisco TelePresence Suites have locations with most noted are the Marriot International, Starwood, and Taj properties. The amenities can be described as five star rating for any professional hospitality property. Unique to its offering is the tour of Cisco’s dynamic product capabilities and high touch human connection the company stand for.
Pam speaks of this highly. As an early adopter, she will insist on using the Public Cisco TelePresence Suites knowing that her notable executives span across different industries. In her most recent case, she logistically managed seven metro cities while commanding her post in Santa Clara which she considers the Public Cisco TelePresence solution to be more than “content delivery” solution. TelePresence is about enabling two-way secured interaction and reliable TelePresence Exchange that is face to face and dynamic. It is truly a comprehensive collaboration delivery tool. The President of the RoundTable Network finds vertical market opportunity where the health care industry can benefit from the open collaboration as they build out their HIPPA concerns, first responders plan and the future of data management. The possibility of new clients and forums are unlimited.
