New Wholesale Hosted Communications with Cisco Webex offering

BT Wholesale has added Cisco Webex to its Wholesale Hosted Communications (WHC) solution. The offering looks to accelerate digital transformation for channel partners and their customers with the addition of a secure collaboration tool.

The company said adding Cisco Webex to its WHC solution is designed to make hybrid working easier and more productive for businesses. The offering provides enterprise-grade video conferencing, instant messaging, file sharing, collaborative spaces and IP calling features.

Gavin Jones, channel director, BT Wholesale, said, “The pandemic has created a market necessity for collaboration and accelerated digital transformation. It is no longer a bonus; it’s an inevitability. But every organisation embarks on a different digital journey – a one size fits all approach doesn’t exist. That’s why it’s vital that we provide the necessary collaboration tools and services to help our channel partners not only navigate through that change, but enable their customers to flourish long after. With the 2025 switch off on the horizon, it’s our ambition is to offer the technology and support to best prepare businesses.”

Jeff Boslem, regional director EMEAR partner collaboration sales at Cisco, added, “Companies are reimagining how they work and the all new Cisco Webex is a game-changer for UK businesses as they prepare to return to the office. The new way of working is already here and WHC with Cisco Webex will enable businesses to not only survive, but to thrive in the new normal.”

The WHC suite of collaboration tools is scalable for organisations of all sizes and is underpinned by BT’s leading 24/7 monitored network which provides customers with a secure and reliable approach to flexible working.
