Lenovo has announced its Smart Meeting Room Solution, a unified communications that will allow various devices and screens to be able to collaborate in a workplace. The company has partnered with Intel featuring the ThinkCentre Tiny desktop and Intel Unite technology which according to Lenovo is expected to transform meeting rooms and also boost productivity among employees.
The ThinkCentre Tiny desktop with Intel vPro will leverage the new Intel Unite technology which allows devices to connect wirelessly to new or existing displays, projectors, or interactive whiteboards. The software is one of the recent products from Intel designed to run on either a PC or Mac with a Core vPro processor inside.
The solution can allow attendees to view and present up to four presentations at the same time, while also sharing and annotating content. With secure rotating PIN codes attendees can also access the meeting by simply inputting the meeting PIN code generated by Intel Unite into their device and also effortlessly distribute content among all attendees.
“We are committed to constantly enhancing employee productivity” Ouyang Jun, vice president and general manager, Lenovo Desktop, Workstation and Smart Home/Computing Business Unit said , adding that The Lenovo Smart Meeting Room Solution will bring employee collaboration to a new level.
Studies have shown that meetings are number one time waster at work; employees spend more than 22 hours per month in meetings while almost 70 percent of workers claim meeting time is unproductive. Setting up meetings and connecting to displays or projectors is often complex and valuable meeting time is wasted, causing frustration and impacting overall engagement.
Lenovo says with the Lenovo Smart Meeting Room Solution, with ThinkCentre Tiny with vPro and Intel Unite, meeting time setbacks are virtually eliminated – instead of searching for adapters and dealing with technical difficulties, employees can now spend this time successfully collaborating and bringing their best ideas to the table.
The solution will be available on ThinkCentre M900 Tiny and M93p Tiny units starting at $619.
