What Do I Get? 

This service provides access to Cisco Jabber, an instant messaging and collaboration tool from your desktop or mobile device.

Why Do I Want It? 

Cisco Jabber allows you to instant message colleagues in one-on-one chats or group sessions, as well as make calls directly from your computer. You can also view whether a co-worker is available, in a meeting or away, so you aren't waiting for a response from a colleague who is out of the office.

Cisco Jabber also integrates with Webex, giving you the ability to instantly arrange a video conference and allows for desktop sharing.
