Cisco announced a variety of innovations at Enterprise 2.0 that will make collaboration easier at work. Cisco WebEx® Social (formerly known as Cisco Quad™) builds on existing offerings that help employees share information and work together regardless of where they are located.

Here's what's new:
Microsoft Office Integration: WebEx Social works with Microsoft Office so teams can jointly edit and post updated documents, presentations and spreadsheets back to WebEx Social.
Email: enhanced e-mail integration means workers can stay in e-mail clients such as Microsoft Outlook while also creating and posting updates to WebEx Social.
Mobility: WebEx Social iPhone and iPad client gives workers the ability to transition from social networking to real-time IM, Web conferencing and voice calls directly from the mobile application.
Video: With new browser-based video calling, people can seamlessly switch to a high-definition video conference without going to a separate application.
With today's news, Cisco is extending WebEx cloud services to not only encompass what was formerly known as Quad, but also Cisco Callway, Cisco's hosted TelePresence solutions. Cisco is aligning its Quad and Callway brands with WebEx where they join a market leading portfolio of web conferencing and instant messaging solutions. The WebEx cloud is the world's second-largest public cloud for business collaboration applications.
