We are hearing increasingly from our clients of the need to improve team collaboration – enhancing business productivity and process while reducing organizational and travel costs. It’s interesting to see that collaboration was once defined as the process whereby people work together. Traditionally this also meant being together, at the same time and place. Now, with the emergence of new technology and the ability to connect, collaboration is being redefined as the experience of people working together, sharing ideas, data and analysis to develop collective solutions. What has really changed today is that people no longer need to sit together in the same space to undertake collaborative work.
Historically, our industry has focused heavily on the use of video as the means for distance or remote collaboration. Things have changed and today, the principles of visual collaboration are driving organizations to change the way they work.
This is where SMART board collaboration solutions from Acctel come into play. Interactive Whiteboard technology is a key component of any collaborative ecosystem. In fact, the proper deployment of this type of technology can provide your organization with a significant opportunity to accelerate collaboration in both connected and non-connected meetings.
Recognizing that the majority of users are visual learners, senior leaders are driving teams to represent information visually to increase understanding and accelerate business process and decision making.
Traditional collaboration often failed because team interaction was restricted to just talking or showing powerpoint presentations. There is a better way to work together. With visual collaboration tools from Acctel, people collaborate in visual and interactive ways whether they are in the same room or in workspaces around the world. We’ve helped our customers find innovative ways to make more informed decisions, reduce costs, engage clients and stakeholders, and train personnel – all by making it easier to share information and communicate ideas.
