Smart Meeting Rooms Become the Main Attraction for More Productive Team Collaboration and Innovative Ways to Work
SAN CARLOS, Calif., July 23, 2018 — Bluescape®, a leader of innovative digital collaboration workspace solutions, announced the availability of BluescapeNow™, a new online whiteboard and collaboration canvas, integrated with the Intel Unite® solution. The free plug-in enables people to better create, share and update content for improved productivity meeting spaces with the Intel Unite® solution.
The unique combination of the two solutions allows teams to maximize the meeting efficiencies of the Intel Unite® solution with the intuitive collaboration software of BluescapeNow. Users can easily work together in one shared, visually-interactive canvas. All information is securely stored and persistent in a digital canvas for continuous use.
Within the shared space, meeting hosts can add notes, draw and post updates as they happen. Project canvases and live meetings are readily accessible for users to view from any mobile device, laptop or touch-enabled conference room screen.
“Bluescape delivers a key missing piece in today’s meetings, the ability for people to visually interact and experience digital content,” said Tom Loza, Director of Sales for the Intel Unite® solution. “BluescapeNow gives our Intel Unite® users a collaborative canvas to share ideas and work more naturally both inside and outside of conference rooms.”
With BluescapeNow and the Intel Unite solution, meetings become more creative and productive as teams collaborate better. Meetings start faster and proceed more dynamically following discussion flows. Time spent looking for documents or the correct cable adapter or exchanging control of presenter screens no longer occurs. Instead, people are more focused, collaborating on ideas and problem solving as decisions are quickly made. Conference and huddle rooms, running the combined solutions, enable and facilitate the new ways people want to work and meet.
“The meeting room is changing. It has to change,” said Demian Entrekin, CTO at Bluescape. “The modern workforce, and particularly the new generation of digitally savvy workers, expects a much better experience. The days of plugging in cables, fumbling with adapters and meeting-start inefficiencies are coming to an end.”
“Our customers want to innovate and change how their employees work, to foster a truly collaborative culture,” said Peter Jackson, CEO of Bluescape. “Team meetings and collaboration are no longer static and instead, need to be more fluid and flexible.
BluescapeNow and our flagship solution, Bluescape Enterprise™ enable people to engage with all their digital content in unique ways. It also increases the productivity and inclusion of remote workers and external stakeholders to the project team.”
BluescapeNow is easy to use as users can quickly engage, create and share their canvas spaces. They can add a variety of content from leading applications, Facebook, Instagram, Gmail™, Google photos, Evernote®, Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive. The BluescapeNow plugin will be available for free from the Intel Unite plugins download page on July 24th.
Bluescape and Intel will showcase the new BluescapeNow and Intel Unite® solutions at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Conference, July 23rd – 26th in Denver, Colorado. Visit Bluescape booth #29131-SL, during Expo Show hours to learn more.
