Cisco Spark by Orange satisfies a growing user demand for a single,
simple, secure and collaborative mobile workspace. However, Cisco Spark
by Orange is more than just a cloud collaboration platform, it is an
enabler for enterprise digitization.
As part of this initiative, Orange
has opened Cisco Spark by Orange Open Labs. This network of labs
provides a global mix of physical and virtual resources, which is
designed to provide a dedicated space for innovation and development.
At the labs, customers can integrate collaboration, connectivity, bot
development and application integrations with the Cisco Spark API
catalog. The labs provide a live software and API development
environment between Cisco Spark and third-party applications.
Enterprises will be able to develop specific apps leveraging Cisco Spark
by Orange APIs and integrate them smoothly into their business
processes, maximizing efficiency and resources.
A use case example could include creating a bot for bank customers,
enabling them to pick up personal finance documents in a secure Spark
space or creating a Spark space for specific customers where diverse
teams from sales to marketing and customer service can access documents,
chat or video conference with experts.
Collaboration made simple
Cisco Spark by Orange provides
team messaging, voice and video calling, online meetings, white bard
capabilities and a robust set of application programming interfaces
(API) for workflow optimization across multiple enterprise applications.
Orange customers include a global mining company that is using Cisco
Spark with WebEx and Spark Boards to enable collaboration across the
globe. The solution features 24/7 support and seamless integration with
its existing service management. It has enabled the enterprise to reduce
costs worldwide using toll-free numbers and competitive rates on call
back, while boosting end-user productivity.
"Customers are asking for single-vendor collaboration solutions that
help them improve productivity and outpace the competition, and that's
what we are delivering with Cisco Spark by Orange. With this solution
our co-innovation capability is well supported by our Open Lab
initiative," said André Smit, vice president Global Collaboration Sales
"Through the new Cisco Spark features, we are convinced that we can now
offer a fully collaborative suite which fulfills all the digital
transformation workspace promises. The proof is in the fact that our
multinational customers are already jumping on board. As even further
validation, Orange Business Services was recently positioned as a Leader
in Gartner's (News - Alert) latest global Magic Quadrant for UCaaS," explains Vannina
Kellershohn, vice president Universal & Unified Communications Business
Unit at Orange Business Services.
