  • What is a persistent meeting and how to accomplish it
  • How collaboration technology can make or break your meeting space
  • What the Mezzanine is and how it facilitates persistent meetings

Thurs., June 7, 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. – “Transitioning to a Digital Workplace.” Danny Rogers, AVI-SPL VP, Channels, Enterprise Accounts
Everything in your office is connected. Printing is hardly needed, collaboration can start from and to anywhere – and escalate to any system, and newer workflows have led to new interconnected tools that are no longer discrete.

Wed., June 6, 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. – “Examining Better UC metrics for Better Results”
Few organizations actually gather the details about how they collaborate (number of meetings, number of participants, number of calls, etc.) Even less of them examine these numbers to look for opportunities for service improvement. New, automated systems that gather and examine these metrics are available, and are a gold mine of data that can be used to identify problems, right-size deployed technologies, and reveal good trends that should be encouraged and bad trends that should be addressed. This session and panel discussion will detail how these systems and services work, and highlight areas where they can be used to improve both collaboration services and users’ perception of them.

Join industry experts and senior executives as they address the latest issues related to conferencing, collaboration, and unified communications.

Thurs., June 7, 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. – “UC Managed Services in an IoT World”
This session will examine how managed services have developed from onsite warm bodies to help buttons that start calls and on to sophisticated remote services. Additionally, every device that’s on the network can and should now be managed, redefining what it means to offer managed services in the first place. Join us to hear a panel of experts who will detail the new offerings and processes that are available, and that can help secure and protect your endpoints and systems. Register for the event here >

Thurs., June 7,  3 p.m. to 4 p.m. – “UC Ecosystems and the Millennial Workflow”
In recent years collaboration technologies have begun to move away from discrete tools and toward the support of seamless workflows. Applications such as Slack, Cisco Webex Teams and Microsoft Teams not only require the users to understand the technology, but require a change to the way one works- supporting this workflow BEYOND the meeting. At this presentation and discussion find out exactly what this will mean for your organization. Register for the event here >

Case Study: 7-Eleven Improves Operations With Collaboration Technology

From its Irving, Texas, Store Support Center, 7-Eleven wanted the ability to better collaborate and share information with its regional offices while supporting its franchisees.  AVI-SPL responded to this need by integrating over 100 conference rooms with collaboration technology, including video conferencing.

Our work for 7-Eleven shows how important intuitive collaboration tools can be to a company’s operations and its ability bring ideas to market.

This case study also includes praise for AVI-SPL’s collaborative approach, and emphasizes our value when working with clients at the earliest stages of a project.

Watch the video below to hear from 7-Eleven’s market manager and manager of AV services about the impact the new solutions have made on the company’s operations, and the experience of working with AVI-SPL. You can also read the written version of the 7-Eleven case study at the AVI-SPL website.
