Have you ever spent hours over a whiteboard, creating acres of notes and then trying to capture an image of all that work using your smart phone or tablet, only to end up with a blurry image, or light reflecting in the image so it’s partially unreadable?
Frustrating isn’t it!
Well that problem can now be solved using SMART kapp™
SMARTkapp is as easy to use as a dry-erase board where users can now capture, save and share ideas. All work can the saved as either JPEG or PDFs (yup… that means you don’t need to take those photos of the whiteboard any longer!!)
There is a low cost to entry with this product so it becomes highly cost efficient to justify that switch from old dry eraser whiteboards and flipcharts, plus you can share content with remote workers or colleagues in other locations, in real time!
SMART kapp is a brand new, digital capture board that creates a completely new product category – a revolutionary update to the inefficient dry-erase board that is just as easy and intuitive to use as a dry-erase board yet it provides so much more.
SMART kapp users can behave exactly as they would with a dry eraser whiteboard, but the magic is viewers can see the progress of the inkmarker in real time on their digital devices. All work is saved using SMART’s software as a final product in PDF or JPEG format and can quickly and easily be shared anywhere.
The SMARTkapp app is available as a free download for iOS and Android users (with Windows mobile support on it’s way!). Once the user has downloaded the SMART kapp app, they are then able to pair their tablets or smartphones to a SMART kapp board with a scan of its unique QR code or a tap of its NFC tag.
The app then activates live web-sharing with up to five users, access to the snapshot library, PDF and JPEG save & share, and Evernote™. Later in 2014, SMART will launch subscription services within the app which open up advanced features for cloud collaboration.
This will include live web sharing with PIN protection, a large number of concurrent web viewers, and advanced search and index tools to get even more out of SMART kapp snapshots.
Neil Gaydon, President and CEO of SMART Technologies said “Everyone loves the ease of use and versatility of the dry erase board and flip chart that we’ve been using for decades, but today’s workplace has exposed their limitations – their time for replacement has come.
How do you save and share the great ideas generated?
How do you get the full value from all the hard work and inspiration of productive collaboration?
By transcribing the board?
By taking low-grade photographs?
The answer is SMART kapp, the biggest innovation to the dry erase board since it was invented in 1957.”
To install the SMART kapp, almost no technical skills are needed. All you have to do is hang it on the wall, as you would a conventional dry white board and simply plug it into a normal plug socket!
You don’t need to involve IT as there is no need for any specific integration other than to connect it to your mobile phone or any other mobile device with connectivity and you are ready to go!
I’m sure you can agree this is a major breakthrough and the potential is huge as it’s cost effective, easy to use and highly effective! Simply a massive improvement from a dry erase board or a flip chart plus its also a sleek and well designed product.
It has sleek lines made of a tempered glass finish and will certainly have a positive impact on any office, boardroom or training room.
