New Delhi, India: BT and Cisco today announced that PepsiCo, one of the world’s largest food and beverage companies, will be deploying Cisco TelePresence systems across PepsiCo’s major offices worldwide. The technology includes fully managed “concierge-level” services from BT, including inter company capabilities that will help enable cross-company collaboration between PepsiCo and key distributors and retailers.

Cisco TelePresence systems create immersive virtual meeting experiences that make participants feel as though they are in the same room though they may be thousands of miles apart. This combination of high-definition video and spatial audio provides an alternative to in-person meetings.

“This new collaboration strategy with BT and Cisco will reinvent the way we work,” said Robert Dixon, senior vice president and global chief information officer for PepsiCo. “Global virtual meeting collaboration will enable us to travel less, which will allow for greater productivity and a smaller environmental footprint. In this day and age, it’s simply a smarter way of going about our business.”

“We look forward to providing PepsiCo with an easy-to-use, reliable, cost-effective TelePresence experience,” said Michael Boustridge, president, BT Global Services Multi-National Corporations. “This game-changing technology provides live, face-to-face virtual interaction that allows people from different locations to come together and collaborate as if they were all seated in the same room. This contract builds on BT’s existing relationship with PepsiCo, which we look forward to expanding worldwide, leveraging BT’s global reach.”
