£88 billion pounds is a lot of money to waste – particularly in pressing times?I have been pioneering new technologies to market for > 5 years and the types of organisations that approach Steljes have a wide range of reasons why they want to talk to us about improving the way they work Here are some of the different challenges that I have collected over that time Read a few from the list and circle from podium…..business has never been harder….. times are pressingAlthough they may all be different challenges, all these are linked to one thing –IMPROVING PRODUCTIVITY
Ok, lets ask you a question about how you currently collaborate at work in your meetings. Think about your last meeting you ran and managed - how did you present, collaborate and distribute your notes? What did you use?Rank your top three
Finally, answer this question – about YOUR ORGANISATION?
Play video and recap on benefits of Visual Collaboration:It’s a visual component to the conversation that supports discussion among multiple stakeholders A video conference that enables much more than just seeing someone face to face – you can actually work in real time on a document!An isolated remote worker who is adding value and sharing in social interaction A meeting room where people are engaged, participating and have access to all the discussions seconds after the meeting ends
Freestorm brings together five key components of successful visual collaboration to transform the way you do business. Review each key area. Intuitive displays that invite interaction and can turn virtually any environment into a collaboration space Powerful collaboration software that makes it easy to capture and share knowledge and enables you to write over any applicationDispersed collaboration options that allow remote participants to fully contribute to the visual collaboration experience regardless of locationComprehensive services that ensure peak performance of Freestorm solutions through training, maintenance and supportCompatibility with a variety of applications you use everyday, such as MS Office and other industry-specific applications

Productive Meeting Space software suitable for different ‘work’ use cases:Intuitive software is the cornerstone of Freestorm visual collaboration solutions. It makes visual collaboration an easy and engaging experience through the ability to freely brainstorm with sketches and handwritten notes on the digital whiteboard and seamlessly transition to any application…you can write, annotate, or interact with virtually any electronic material. Removes barriers to collaboration Since the software is easy to use, it is simple to just pick up a pen and start collaborating. There are no technical barriers to get in the way of productive information sharing which helps to increase innovation, speed up decisions and make businesses more nimble and competitive. Interact using familiar tools SMART’s software line allows users to interact with the board using a pen or their finger to write, and an eraser or their fist to erase, making interaction with digital content a natural experience, using familiar tools and natural instincts for how they would interact with a traditional whiteboardAnnotate over any application with SMART Ink SMART Ink allows users to write in digital ink over any application, making it easy to collaborate with existing content and applications that they are familiar with. There’s no need to learn how to use new software applications in order to effectively collaborate and capture notes and ideas. Modify content with ease Digital content can be freely manipulated…easily extend page length, add or delete pages, or change the order of pages within the whiteboard file. Or, you can effortlessly move content around on the page, saving the need to re-write content, and making the brainstorming process more fluid and efficient.
Transform everyday remote meetings into extraordinary collaboration – in room, room to room, room to desktop/ipad For example,Bridgit conferencing software supports collaboration within the meeting room, between meeting rooms and with remote workers joining the meeting room from their laptop, PC or iPad.Enables truly collaborative meetings that seamlessly include remote participants by connecting SMART visual collaboration spaces so teams can collaborate on data in real time
There is huge variety of products that work with the Freestorm solutions – Polycom, RadVision, Lifesize or GoToMeeting.

We have interoperability with WebEx where you can pick up a red pen and annotate in native WebEx ink over presentations and into the WebEx whiteboard.Today you can use MS Lync on a SMART Board by manually selecting the Lync tools to write into the Lync whiteboard or over PowerPoint. In Q3 we will be integrated with Lync which will provide full access to Meeting Pro tools while being connected via Lync.SMART Bridgit is designed to work seamlessly with any Freestorm solutions.

COLLABOR8 WHITE PAPER WHAT HAS CHANGED IS THAT A NEW PARADIGM WILL EMERGE PEOPLE NO LONGER NEED TO SIT – WHEN PEOPLE COME INTO A TOGETHER IN THE SAME SPACE TO SPACE OR BUILDING THEY WILL UNDERTAKE COLLABORATIVE WORK. DO SO BECAUSE THEY NEED OR WANT TO BE THERE.

PEOPLE, ENABLED BY MOBILE THE REALITY IS THAT ONLY TECHNOLOGY AND NEW CULTURE, AND ABOUT 44% OF TIME IS AWARE OF THE NEED TO MINIMISE SPENT AT THE DESK.
