Let’s assume you already know you want to make the Microsoft Surface Hub a part of your organization. In that case, here’s the link to our Surface Hub page, where you can order as many as you’ll need from the outstanding systems integration company I work for, AVI-SPL. We have elite partner status with Microsoft and are one of the few channels through which you can purchase the Surface Hub.
But let’s entertain another scenario. Perhaps you’ve heard bits and pieces about the Microsoft Surface Hub — how it’s been touted as “disruptive,” and that it’s going to make organizations change the way they operate, and how it was one of the best products at InfoComm, the annual tradeshow for the latest pro AV products. You’re wondering just what makes this so special, aside from the Microsoft name?
I’ve shared with you the list of features. Now let me present a picture: You’ve got many departments in your company (or school or agency). And within those departments, you have people that are — ideally — working toward a common goal. Rather, many common goals. And to reach those goals, and complete the projects that lead to those goals, department members have to work together. They may also have to work across departments. They have to give status updates, or propose plans of action, or brainstorm ways to reach a particular end result.
And so individuals need to meet, whether for a few hours or just a few minutes. Some may be in the office, while others might be working remotely from home or while at another company location.
This is where the Surface Hub reveals its value, because no matter where those team members are located, the Surface Hub brings them together via video conferencing, and provides them a digital canvas on which to share documents, images, videos — you name it — that all attendees can see and annotate. If you have teams that need to meet in large conference rooms, there’s an 84-inch version of the Surface Hub that you’ll want to get. But let’s say you have small conference rooms or perhaps no conference rooms. Maybe you work within an open office plan that has the meeting nook or huddle space. The Surface Hub works there too, because it also comes in a 55-inch size.
Head over to our Microsoft page, and see why the Surface Hub might be the best business decision you make all year.
