Secure Cross-Platform Collaboration

NextPlane connects users on Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Cisco Webex to their colleagues, inside or outside the enterprise.Users can chat and DM each other with rich text, GIF, and emoji reactions, share presence status, participate in channel discussion, and share files without leaving their preferred platforms.

NextPlane acts as a universal hub to perform protocol, content, and API translations between API-based team collaboration platforms, like Slack Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex, and SIP or XMPP based messaging solutions, such as Avaya IX Workplace, Cisco Jabber, and Microsoft Skype for Business.
