How does it work?


Synergy SKY management suite leverages data from sensors, user behavior, and your
calendar to make all meetings and management more efficient. 

The management suite is not adding new complexity, it optimizes your existing install base.
 

 

Features

 

one_touch_join_circle_blue_fillOne-click-to-join

Book the meeting as you normally would in your calendar. In a few seconds, the green join button will appear for all meeting participants (including personal and meeting room SIP endpoints), and you can join the meeting in one click, regardless of the vendor you or the participants are using.

E.g. One-Click dial from Cisco and Poly into Teams meetings.

 

 

 

 

auto_room_release_circle_blue_fillAuto release of rooms with no-show

The Synergy SKY management suite enables the sensors in Cisco Webex devices or Synergy Sensors, to automatically release booked rooms when no one shows up in the room. The virtual meeting remains untouched.
