Here, customers can experience transformative collaboration by interacting directly with content from different locations at the same time while displaying it side-by-side across multiple surfaces for rapid comparison and cross-reference. The use of multiple displays provides a unique canvas for spreading data sources literally across a room so users can quickly contextualize problems, compare and contrast data or content, and understand the complete picture of any business challenge. Users connected over Cisco videoconferencing can participate in collaboration sessions, seeing all the data and contributing their own content to help in problem-solving, just as if they were in the room.

With its broad global customer base and product depth in digital transformation, WWT makes an ideal partner and growth driver for Oblong. Oblong CEO Pete Holst commented, “WWT’s deployment of Mezzanine in their new, state-of-the-art headquarters, provides customers another venue to experience a unique combination of video conferencing and multi-share collaboration.”

“Offering innovative, forward-thinking solutions like those offered by the combination of Mezzanine and Webex is key to solving our customers’ complex collaboration challenges,” said Echele.

Mezzanine is off a strong start at WWT having recently completed an initial deployment to a Fortune 500 domestic insurance company, proving that demand for advanced collaboration capabilities is becoming critical for leading organizations.
