Cisco Meraki

Integration Overview

By integrating Cisco Meraki with UMA you are provided with the perfect blend of technology that's enabled for the future of work.

UMA are a Cisco Solutions Plus Partner and design workplace technology solutions that integrate seamlessly with Cisco workplace solutions.

UMA's integration with Cisco Meraki lets you leverage the latest technologies to optimise your office environment.

Additionally, you can view analytics data on a dashboard or map of your office, enabling you to make informed decisions on how to best allocate resources.

Tracking meeting room utilisation and air quality of your office space can help you understand the usage patterns of your employees in the workplace and allow you to make informed decisions on how to optimise the office environment.

This can save time, money and energy by analysing how to best allocate resources, as well as improve air quality and circulation. Additionally, monitoring air quality will help you ensure your office remains up to date with the latest health and safety regulations.
