Choosing the Right Collaboration Tool

In this webinar, Henning Moe and Ryan Striemer of SMART Technologies help you learn how an interactive flat panel can be much more than simply a display with a touch feature. When combined with the right software and wrapped into a natural, intuitive user experience, it becomes a collaboration tool that can save time, unlock productivity and improve meeting results. In this webinar, you’ll learn how to make the meeting-room display a hub where people can connect from any device to explore ideas together and get work done. Covered topics include:

  • Results from collaboration research
  • What collaboration in the corporate setting looks like
  • Features to look for in an interactive display
  • Benefits of the SMART kapp IQ solution
