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.
