Depending on how you would prefer to communicate over distance, SMART Boards and video conferencing can be tailored to suit your needs. Both technologies’ ROI is delivered by reduced travel, improved communications and faster decision-making. In this way, a finalised product can be released to the market quicker, securing a competitive advantage and delivering higher sales.
SMART Boards allow projects to be run over long periods of time. Notes can be recorded and referred to at any stage and a complete history can be kept for compliance or internal records.
A SMART Board also allows real time handwritten notes to be added and shared between teams working remotely. This will allow reduced travel, and speed up decision making. Meetings between teams can happen faster, increasing the ease of communication between remote teams.
The use of video conferencing also improves remote users’ collaboration experience. With an ongoing project, we recommend HD video conferencing solutions as the picture quality makes misunderstandings rare and visual communications clearer. In addition, adding a visualiser will allow any non-PC based material to be added into a video call. Finally, SMART Boards can be used to allow on-screen sign-off from the project decision maker, regardless of physical location. This provides a way of documenting who made project decisions and when.
Who we often work with: Companies with in-house Research and Development teams.
