We spend a lot of time at work. Unfortunately, 38% of British people say they do not enjoy their time in the office (YouGov). There are obviously many factors that contributing to this but two primary reasons are an unpleasant environment and frustrating/outdated technology. Cisco’s all-in-one device for team collaboration is your solution to these issues! Introducing the Webex Board.

Let’s be honest, Cisco knows how to do collaboration. They are the market leaders in varying fields from contact centres to phone systems to instant messaging. The Webex Board is a masterpiece in innovation, combining cutting-edge technology with sleekly designed hardware. We love using Webex Board in our office so much that we’ve compiled a list Webex Board features we think you’ll love it too!

Easy installation

The first great Webex Board feature is that you don’t have to be an IT expert to set it up. When your board initially arrives you can set it up with two people in just 15 minutes as you can see in the video below. The process is simple and painless which is great because no one enjoys buying a great new device and then realising you can’t put it together.

User recognition

When the board is set up, the first thing that will surprise you is it will already recognise you as being in the room before you tell it. If you have the Webex Teams app installed on your phone, a signal will be received by the board with the details of your account. You will then be able to fully control the board through your app. This is a fantastic time-saving feature that’s popular among everyone who uses Webex Boards.

Wireless presentation

Webex boards are most useful in a meeting situation. These devices are built around supporting teams during meetings and maximising productivity during this time. One of the Webex Board features that is key to this is Wireless Presentation. The Webex board allows anyone in the room from a wide variety of devices to share documents to the board wirelessly.

This could be a PowerPoint they have constructed or when they need to share their screen to walk people through a specific process. This stops interruptions in meetings where participants have to plug in/unplug their equipment in order to present something to the rest of the team.


When someone has shared their document to the Webex Board, colleagues will obviously have comments or suggestions to make. This is where the whiteboarding feature comes into play. At the touch of a finger, you can begin drawing or making notes on the documents with a pen, for everyone else to see. These annotations are then automatically saved to the cloud securely for participants to come back to at a later date.

Video conferencing

Let’s say not all of your team are present at the office. Before you may have needed to conference one of them in on a phone. The sound would not be clear and the person that wasn’t present may not be able to fully participate because of this. The Webex Board is the solution to this. Wherever you are you can seamlessly connect to a meeting via video from your laptop or phone and feel like your really there in the room. The Webex Board boasts a powerful 4K camera that captures a high-resolution, wide-angle image of nearly the entire room. A 12-microphone array delivers crisp, clear audio, automatically amplifying and modulating voices so that all meeting participants sound great.

Best overview

The last of the Webex Board features on our list that you’ll find interesting is called Best Overview. The Webex Boards are extremely intuitive and are built to intelligently anticipate all your needs. When you are video conferencing with someone and there may only be two people in your room, the Webex board will recognise this and modify the framing so that the person talking with you has the best view. This stops the camera showing an empty large boardroom with just two people sitting there.


There are many other Webex Board features we could mention but this is just a short list of some of our favourites. This piece of kit can really boost productivity in your office and enables your teams to collaborate like they never have before.
