Get Smart and keep up with fast pace of change

By Steve Kennedy

The way in which we communicate, collaborate, share information and do business is changing. The workplace requirements for serving the needs of business and the people within it are changing as well.

The fast pace of modern business demands technology solutions that cater for multiple levels of engagement, from the sharing of information to interaction with data and remote communication without limitations. Video-conferencing, especially across mobile devices, continues to be an expanding communication technology for business but has been limited by a reliance on expensive hardware and network infrastructures. There is a need to unify the various business communication technologies into a seamless and less restrictive environment.

Is this all this transformation achievable? In short yes, it can be, especially with the advent of intuitive meeting room environments such as the SMART Room System for MS Lync. Systems like this allow unrestricted, near instant collaboration across any enterprise that uses Lync, providing real-time benefits such as faster decision-making and raised levels of productivity. The ability to interact with colleagues seamlessly wherever they are, combined with near virtual automation within the meeting room is an amazing step toward realising this goal.

At Saville, our forward thinking stance on AV/IT technology is based on our experiences across a diverse range of clients developing solutions that cater for today's remote communication and collaboration needs within the business environment.

Saville Audio Visual will be a key exhibitor at the Smart Business Show 2014 at the Odyssey Arena, Belfast on Thursday and Friday this week, with a specialist stand featuring interactive and collaborative solutions focused on the demands of the modern business environment. A unique show highlight includes full demonstration facilities of the SMART Room System for Lync, alongside interactive whiteboards and large format displays. Visitors can try all these out and discuss their own requirements with the team of experts on-hand.
