Cisco Systems Unifies Office Life


Communications company Cisco Systems has launched a new campaign centered around the typically nightmarish aspects of office life such as missed meetings, endless phone tag, conference call insanity, video headaches, wiring difficulties and all those other inane idiosyncrasies that make you wish for the days before the fax machine launched us into office technology hell. Ten videos cover just about every office technology nightmare except for the biggest one of them all. People. No matter how wonderful Cisco technology might be, no technology can connect people if there's no one there to connect to. If Cisco can solve that problem, office life might actually be something to look forward to.

Ok I'll start this. They went all the way around the block to demonstrate a problem I already know about, yet I have no idea how they can solve the problem. I don't care and I don't have time to remember to call them and wonder what they sell. I may go to their web site while I eat lunch.
In my funny little world phone tag is the big problem. More and more of the people I deal with send calls to their little pocket size annoyance to a mailbox. Funny how that age old problem remains the same. A bunch of the answers I am looking for are sent by email.

Nice stuff. All I ever see from Cisco are quasi-racist portrayals of Indian IT guys or bad immitations of IBM ads.

they remind you of IBM ads because they are done by the same agency that does IBM stuff. I'm waiting for the letterboxing motif to show up any day now...
