How to use SMART Boards to improve construction industry meetings

By utilising the latest meeting room technologies construction companies can benefit from reduced travel and improved communications and, ultimately, increased productivity.

SMART Boards are interactive white boards that let you access, annotate and manipulate any digital content, both locally and remotely. Using either a special pen or your finger you can write notes on the touch sensitive white board, convert the handwriting to type and drag your notes around the screen to organise them however you want. You can resize your writing, manipulate objects such as PDF documents and images, and switch between multiple screens at the touch of a finger.

A SMART Board is ideal for meetings as you can write and organise notes instantly, view documents, files and programmes and highlight and annotate any of your content, all within the SMART environment. You can capture individual screens as you go along and at the end of the session you can combine all the screens into a single file – either as a PDF or PowerPoint document that anyone can view, or as a SMART Meeting Pro file that you can continue to alter and add to whenever you want.

SMART Boards are especially relevant to the construction industry as they integrate with both AutoCad and NavisWorks. As well as being able to navigate your way through diagrams and 3D models you can write directly on the drawings and save your notes within the software. You can also keep a digital record of your entire session, so if you view several different document types as well as AutoCad drawings, your entire meeting will be saved in one easy to use file.

You can also share your SMART meeting in real time with remote participants, which reduces the need for travel or extra meetings as you can instantly invite someone to the meeting, wherever they are located. The benefit of this is that meetings are more effective, communication is improved, sign off can happen instantly and your overall productivity is boosted.
