Cisco has completed its acquisition of Slido for an undisclosed amount.
The deal, first announced last December, will see Slido’s audience engagement tools – such as polls and quizzes – merged into Webex.
Javed Khan, General Manager of Cisco Collaboration, said: “Slido technology brings robust capabilities to the Webex platform, enabling the kind of dynamic audience participation that is so important to an effective meeting experience.
“For meeting participants that might be reluctant to ask a question or share their voice, Slido’s ability to display questions anonymously enables a higher degree of participation and feedback”
“By using Slido to crowdsource questions in advance, presenters can be sure to share content that resonates – ultimately leading a more productive session.
“My favourite Slido feature is the ability for meeting participants to view and upvote audience questions, giving everyone a voice in the conversation and delivering real-time insights to meeting hosts about what topics are most important to the audience.
BTW: Polls and surveys are already available in VideoMost - self-hosted software video conferencing server for enterprise collaboration, mobile messaging and content sharing
