Combining SMART Boards and video conferencing for better project management

In industries such as pharmaceuticals and research, where time is of the essence, there are many benefits to be gained from combining SMART Boards and video conferencing for better project management. In this article we’ll look at some of those benefits and also show you a video demonstrating how you can use iObeya project management software with SMART Boards.

The benefits of combining SMART Boards and video conferencing for better project management

Combining SMART Boards and video conferencing for improved project managementReduced need for travel

When you start combining SMART Boards and video conferencing it is no longer necessary for every member of a team to be in the room for every meeting. While the investment in technology can be hefty, there’s a big return to be made as you save money on travel expenses and gain back all the time previously lost through travel.

Better remote communication
Combining SMART Boards and video conferencing means your communication improves dramatically, both locally and remotely. Because there’s no need for colleagues and partners to travel you can organise meetings on the spur of the moment and invite everyone, regardless of where they are located. High definition video conferencing means everyone is kept in the loop and can see every gesture and expression. Debates over video conferencing are the next best thing to face-to-face communication. And SMART Boards mean you can share data such as schedules, budgets and images.

Improved collaboration

Another benefit of using SMART Boards is that you have unrivalled opportunities for collaboration with those in the room and connecting remotely. SMART Boards let you pull in a wide range of data and then manipulate it in real time on the board – and everyone involved in the meeting can take control. You can highlight specific areas, write notes, make amendments, and then save everything into one easy to distribute file – meaning everyone goes away with the same meeting notes. You can add a visualiser to demonstrate 3D products and you can even open up project management software such as iObeya and use it on the .

Faster decision making

Because combining SMART Boards and video conferencing means you can get everyone “in the room” even when they’re not in the same location, you can reach decisions much faster. You can get instant sign-off at every stage of a project simply by getting a signature on the board – because that will be saved, along with the associated notes.
