What is Cisco Jabber? Why should I use it?

Cisco Jabber (or Jabber) is an instant messenger service used by and available for UW-Whitewater employees.Jabber-logo-2014

Jabber is synced with your work phone, which means you can make and receive calls, view your call history, and manage your voicemails all from your computer, or mobile device (by downloading the app).

Jabber also has the ability to be synced with your campus Outlook Calendar. If you are in a meeting, the instant messenger will automatically set your status as “Away” so others will know not to disturb you or expect an immediate reply to a message.

Jabber is already downloaded on all campus-owned computers. Which means, every employee on campus has the ability to instantly connect to each other.

Have a quick question about something? You can send a message without worrying about your important message being lost in someone’s inbox. Jabber also has the capability to take and send an image from your computer screen instantly, eliminating the need to upload an attachment.Jabber Home
