Remote Collaboration at the Cisco Store with Cisco Vision and Webex

Webex Board RTP

Digital signage at the Cisco Store provides our shoppers with an immersive and engaging shopping experience. On today’s episode of Tech Tuesday, we’ll see how we can use Cisco Vision, Webex by Cisco, and Cisco Meraki to coordinate digital signage between store locations. Our Tech Expert, Brian Domine, will use the Webex board in San Jose to call the newly installed Webex board in the RTP store, to talk through signage options with a colleague in North Carolina.

When a new shipment of summer merchandise is delivered to the RTP store, the Cisco Store team wants to make sure that the in-store digital signage marketing reflects the newest arrivals. Using the cloud managed Meraki VPN, Brian is able to remotely connect to the Cisco Vision Director as if he was in the RTP store himself. This capability allows him to manage digital media and content delivery from one central control panel- anywhere, anytime. With the help of the Webex boards in both stores, Brian can work through the different signage options with his RTP colleague, to decide which ones look the best and should be implemented into the Cisco Vision playlist.

With Cisco Vision, we are able to customize the Cisco Store to bring our brand and merchandise to life. Learn more about the capabilities of Cisco Vision here. Learn more about the Webex by Cisco boards here, and explore Cisco Meraki here.

Better Teamwork with Webex at the Cisco Store

Webex Board at Cisco Store

Good collaboration is key to connecting employees located throughout the country, and even the globe. Webex by Cisco helps us at the Cisco Store to connect and collaborate with colleagues located at different store locations. On this week’s episode of Tech Tuesday, our Tech Expert, located in San Jose, California, will demonstrate how he can collaborate with his colleague, based out of the RTP office in North Carolina, using the Webex board.

 

Watch the video now!

 

As Brian explains, he has an upcoming trip to visit the RTP campus to install technology throughout at the newly renovated location. Using the Webex Board in the San Jose store, he calls his colleague in RTP to work through the technology deployment plan. When she shares the store floor plan on her screen, Brian is able to take over using the Webex board whiteboarding mode and mark up the document as they walk through their plan.

 

 

This digital whiteboarding session helps to bring collaboration and planning one step further, to better visualize and demonstrate ideas. In this case, Brian and his colleague will talk through the layout of the store as Brian highlights shelving and windows, and then map out where different technologies will be located throughout the store, such as Meraki access points, switches, and cameras. When finished planning, the marked-up document is saved automatically to be sent to relevant team members.

This Webex board at the Cisco Store has helped us create an easy to use, touch based, high quality collaboration experience. With a single, high resolution device, we can connect with remote team members at different store locations to bring our meetings and collaboration to the next level. Learn more about the capabilities of Webex boards here. Plus, stay tuned for more updates on the Cisco Store Tech Lab installation in RTP, coming soon!

Data Visualization with DOMO at the Cisco Store

Cisco Store DOMO

Data analytics are at the core of good business decision making. At the Cisco Store, we use DOMO to help us visualize and analyze trends and patterns in our data to better understand our business. On this week’s episode of Tech Tuesday, our Tech Expert Brian Domine will show off some of the DOMO visualizations we have displayed in the store, and how we use them to learn more about our online sales.

With DOMO, we have the ability to seamlessly connect our data sources through pre-built data connectors. On this week’s episode, Brian will be showing off the visualizations that were created through the DOMO Magento2 connector. The output datasets from this connector are updated in real time, on our own, personalized schedule. On this episode, Brian is only showing off our online sales analysis. However, when we do return to the office, we will be able to overlay our online sales data with in store sales, connecting the various datasets in the backend of the tool.

 

Watch the video now!

 

When creating DOMO visualizations, we can easily choose a previous or current period of time, or compare period over period. Brian will walk the audience through a variety of visualizations that we have filtered for the current period of time. He’ll show off our visualization of daily online sales, broken down by geographic store. We use this card to understand how our different online stores are performing compared to each other, as well as sales trends over the current month. We can also take a look at a year-to-date view of our online sales, to understand when there were spikes in orders or sales, and overlay that information with events like Cisco Live, the holiday season, new store openings, etc. to better understand sales trends.

With DOMO, we can also create cards that display our bestsellers across our different stores. This helps us understand what products our customers are most interested in for the current month, and allows us to better tailor our marketing efforts. Brian will show how the visualization helps us see that the Opti-Dri polo is currently our bestseller. Shop the look here. Additionally, he’ll show that our brand new collaboration with the Connected Asian Affinity Network has also risen in top sales this month. Shop that collaboration here, and give back to the CAAN Fighting AAPI Hate and Discrimination fund.

 

 

Today, we displayed our Magento2 ecommerce sales data visualizations through DOMO. At the Cisco Store, we also have the ability to connect our data to analyze marketing activities on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, email marketing through Klaviyo, and more. Learn more about the capabilities of DOMO here.
