Because we are a Microsoft Cloud Solution provider and have achieved its Silver Cloud competency, you can rely on AVI-SPL to successfully deliver the workplace collaboration experience that drives employee engagement. Below, see what we offer so that you can benefit from tools like Microsoft Teams and the Surface Hub 2S.

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams greatly improves the way your organization works together. That’s because Teams is your hub for collaboration, as it combines conversations, files, calls and meetings in one virtual place where everyone keeps a project moving forward.  Just as we did with Skype for Business, AVI-SPL has built up its practice around Microsoft Teams so that you can expand its capabilities across your organization. We’ll bring the power of Teams into your meeting spaces, giving you the same benefits you enjoy from your personal devices:

  • Productive online meetings where work get done
  • The kind of user experience that makes people want to collaborate
  • The enterprise-grade security that gives IT peace of mind

To bring you these benefits, we work with the manufacturers whose devices support the Microsoft Teams experience in collaboration spaces, including:

  • Crestron
  • HP
  • Lenovo
  • Logitech
  • Poly
  • Yealink

In this next section, see how a Teams-enabled device like the Microsoft Surface Hub turns any space into a collaboration space.

Microsoft Surface Hub 2S

The Microsoft Surface Hub 2S is an all-in-one device that combines the functionality of:

  • A whiteboard
  • A conferencing center
  • A projection screen
  • And more

It’s made for group collaboration
The Surface Hub 2S is more than a smart board or an interactive whiteboard. It’s made for groups that want to connect, co-create, and produce with others regardless of their location. Surface Hub 2S brings together the best of Microsoft collaboration tools – like Windows, Office, Microsoft Whiteboard and Microsoft Teams – all backed by the intelligent cloud.

When you download the Teams apps onto the Surface Hub, you do much more than bring its capabilities onto a giant canvas. You make it possible for remote team members to contribute their ideas on the whiteboard. This is the kind of inclusive meeting experience that encourages people to work together, share ideas, and move projects forward.

Use it alone — for collaboration, presentations, and videoconferencing —  or use it with laptops, tablets, teleconferencing systems, and more, since it comes with so many connection ports.


Work seamlessly together
Move from the first idea to the finished product without missing a beat. Streamline your group workflow through enhanced collaboration features like multi-user sign-in to simultaneously access and save content to the cloud.


Perfect fit for any space
Huddle where you need to with the modern design and intuitive software experience of Surface Hub 2S. It scales and adapts to your space with tiling and rotation abilities and modular accessories. Microsoft has teamed up with workplace expert Steelcase to make rolling stands and easy-to-hang wall mounts so it can go wherever your ideas take you.

As a Microsoft Gold Tier Hub Authorized Device Reseller, AVI-SPL is the best and most experienced digital services provider to integrate the Surface Hub’s capabilities into your environment.

Video Conferencing and Collaboration

Video conferencing has been a critical component of business collaboration for many years. But today, with more integration possibilities, video conferencing has evolved into a more collaborative experience. With more powerful technology, communication can be about more than just being face-to-face. It can include content sharing, white-boarding, and annotation – and other tools that make it possible to have an actual “working meeting.” Video collaboration systems bring people together in new ways, expanding on the capabilities of traditional video conferencing.

AVI-SPL’s video collaboration solutions include the ability to see and edit the same documents in real time — documents that can be shared wirelessly from personal devices, annotated, and saved. The fluid desktop experience of Skype for Business works in group collaboration settings.  Your video collaboration solution can be sourced from an on-premise system, a cloud subscription service, or a hybrid of the two.

Complementing these enhanced video collaboration systems are open collaboration workspaces and huddle rooms that make it easy to quickly gather in small groups, connect with others outside the office or organization, and exchange ideas.

Video Conferencing and Collaboration Workplace Trends

  • As employees bring two or more personal devices (like smartphone and tablets) to work they require the video collaboration solutions that will enable them to be productive from on-site and offsite locations.
  • Companies are designing healthy spaces to improve employee performance and productivity as well as attract and retain top talent.
  • The modern office is designed to better facilitate a range of employee experiences with flexible spaces devoted specifically to activities like collaboration, concentration, innovation, socialization, and revitalization.

Unified Communications & Collaboration Meeting Room Technology

Today’s meeting spaces are the focus of workplace transformation. Meeting room technology is an essential part of your Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) strategy. Change how people can work with one another, and you change what they can do. Wireless sharing, automated control systems, and managed services have helped transform meeting spaces into an area where your coworkers want to be so they can come together and solve problems.

With all the changes in the work environment — mobility, huddle spaces, open collaboration areas — the meeting room remains a vital asset to your organization.  Today’s meeting rooms are more than areas where team members come together to plan and discuss. It’s where they get work done, space where those remote and on-site, customers and colleagues, can come together and make progress.

Unified Communications & Collaboration Workplace Trends

  • Activity-based workspaces empower different generations to be productive and collaborative in the ways they are most comfortable
  • Meeting rooms with infinite canvas video walls give teams an unlimited amount of digital space on which they can share, store, and work on ideas for projects.
  • Proximity location software lets users know through their smart devices if a room is in use or booked as they approach it
  • Sensors that detect when a room is vacant and no longer in use, so that systems can return to idle mode
  • Meetings rooms are becoming areas where work gets done, not just talked about
  • Customized room control for different user types and access levels
  • Automation technology that readies room for collaboration in less than a minute
  • Move toward wireless technology

Huddle Rooms

Work isn’t confined to the office cubicle anymore. Activity-based work areas like huddle rooms are essential for productive team collaboration. Huddle Rooms support an impromptu meeting process that allows you and your colleagues to be mobile throughout the day. Because what matters is getting the work done.

The workplace is reflecting this change – even as some spaces are getting smaller, but they’re also opening up in terms of their layout. Companies realize the value of dedicated huddle rooms where small groups of 2-5 team members can come together as needed to collaborate, even if just for a few minutes.

Huddle Room Workplace Trends

  • Organizations are focused on getting the most value out of their real estate and showing ROI per square foot
  • Giving coworkers the opportunity to work closely together as needed
  • Alongside the traditional meeting space, the huddle space is taking its place as a necessary environment in many enterprises and SMBs
