Choosing the Right Collaboration Tool

In this webinar, Henning Moe and Ryan Striemer of SMART Technologies help you learn how an interactive flat panel can be much more than simply a display with a touch feature. When combined with the right software and wrapped into a natural, intuitive user experience, it becomes a collaboration tool that can save time, unlock productivity and improve meeting results. In this webinar, you’ll learn how to make the meeting-room display a hub where people can connect from any device to explore ideas together and get work done. Covered topics include:

  • Results from collaboration research
  • What collaboration in the corporate setting looks like
  • Features to look for in an interactive display
  • Benefits of the SMART kapp IQ solution

How to Know if Your Company’s Ready for Microsoft Surface Hub

Is Your Company Ready for Microsoft Surface Hub?

Get Your Readiness Report.

Microsoft Surface Hub launched about six months ago. During that time, we have been gathering best practices on what makes a deployment successful and how you can get your company ready now. With a small amount of upfront planning, you can realize an even faster return on your investment in Surface Hub.

So, where do you start?

With our customers’ best practices in mind, we’ve developed a 5-minute quiz that you can help you determine if your company is ready for Microsoft Surface Hub. After you complete your quiz, your results will be tabulated, and your score will rank you in one of three Readiness Levels: Emerging, Prepared or Optimized. You’ll then receive a Readiness Report specifically for your Level.

Although you can put a Surface Hub in almost any room and users are likely to start using it based on the familiar Windows UI, some companies are truly optimized to take advantage of this next generation of collaboration device.

The quiz will assess your company readiness in 4 distinct areas and your report will show you what companies at the next level of readiness are doing so that you can learn from their experience. This isn’t a technical review. We have a great resource for that. You can download our Surface Hub Buyer’s Guide.

Instead, your readiness report will measure 4 key areas:

  1. Meeting Rooms. What A/V, telephony, and collaboration equipment in most of your company meeting rooms? How does your workplace design support collaboration?
  2. Collaboration Solutions. How do employees collaborate with their teams, with other departments, and with remote workers most often? How long to online meetings take to start? Are Microsoft technologies like Office 365 commonly used?
  3. Company Readiness. How actively does your company solicit employee feedback on collaboration tools? Do IT or facilities teams collect data or monitor active usage of meeting room devices?
  4. IT Solutions. How do IT teams manage A/V, collaboration devices and software today? Are data security and protection policies maintained on devices that are accessed in meeting rooms or customer meeting spaces?

Microsoft Surface Hub enables a whole new class of immersive collaboration experiences for your team. In 5 minutes, you can find out if you’re ready and how the Surface Hub can make an immediate impact in your organization.
