Solution Provider Offers Five Reasons New Collaborative Toolsets Are Worth Investigating
NEW YORK, March 21, 2017 – Any number of technical problems can interfere with the experience users have during a meeting that involves technology. From misaligned web conferencing bridges to missing remotes, monitors that won’t turn on or malfunctioning overhead projectors – when people stop thinking about the business at hand and focus their time, energy and attention on the technology it takes to conduct or participate in the meeting itself, the siloed solutions they are using stop being effective collaboration tools and become stumbling blocks instead. According to Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider (www.us.logicalis.com), however, there are significant changes taking place in collaborative toolsets that will make next-generation meetings easier to conduct and join from any device, anywhere in the world, at any time – without the aid of an IT specialist – and at significantly reduced costs.
“There have been so many flavors of collaboration over the years – different manufacturers and product sets – some that worked, some that didn’t. But none of them tied together personal rooms, audio and video, real-time annotation collaboration, smartboard capabilities, and even instant messaging in the way next-generation meeting solutions do today – particularly the way Cisco’s Spark Board does,” says Cory Rehfeldt, Director, Collaboration Practice, Logicalis US. “While Logicalis prides itself on being ‘vendor neutral,’ I feel confident in saying the collaborative experience is accelerating in this direction. There will be no more disparate legacy platforms for collaboration because, with this kind of next-generation platform, it’s now possible to bring it all together in one place. It’s fantastic to see all the pieces working together seamlessly. It’s everything we’ve been watching this industry evolve into for the last two decades, and it’s finally here.”
