With tools such as Cisco WebEx, businesses have been able to eliminate many of the costly, time-consuming in-person meetings once such a necessary component of their operations. WebEx Connect IM, part of the total Cisco WebEx system, uses presence and instant messaging to enable users to communicate with colleagues, both inside and outside an organization. Because of the presence technology, WebEx Connect IM knows whether users are available, reducing communication delays and boosting employee productivity. For its part, Cisco rolled-out the service internally to 90,000 employees, partners, and contractors in 45 days, said Bailey Szeto, director of strategy and architecture for communication and collaborative IT at Cisco.
