Modern Collaboration Technology is not just my personal favourite technology……… Once more I’m spreading the word about what’s happening with communications in the commercial space.

Introduction: Body language is important: Drawing from Linguistics and the Neurosciences this article will explain how important it is to the commercial function for body language to be visible during business communications. Especially during critical interactions! The more important the meeting, the more important it is for involved parties to see each other.

Often this is a wireless method (no surprises there) of transmitting data downstream of the ethernet cable in your wall, to the IO devices via which to interface with said data. For example, a computer, or streaming music output. The simplest, and

Product training When we specify a package for our clients, our focus is the benefits the client will derive from that package: ‘What will it do that expedites their preferred commercial outcomes?’ if you will. Whilst adhering wherever possible to the axiom ‘K.I.S.S.: Keep It Simple Stupid’ the sheer volume of functional capacity built into most components means solutions we build for clients tend to be feature rich: Hardly surprising

Interactive presentation technology There are a few brands in the market manufacturing great interactive equipment: Some have a few more features than others and some cost more than the others. However, the general set of functions defining them as ‘interactive’ are common to all. Have a look below at the marketing material we’ve gathered, illustrating some of the features inherent to the category. Please note the functions cited below are

The Pitch: Face-to-face interaction between staff and management is proven to be more effective than other methods. This concept proposal describes a way to increase that interaction across multi-site organisations, but save expenditure on travel.

New DESIGN Customer proposal The very recent overhaul of our customer proposal has seen the quirkiness and cool factor that everyone loves about us, combined with an easy to navigate electronic interface.
