Take Meetings Up a Notch with Interactive Whiteboards

February 14, 2013

Whiteboards are no longer just the tools of teachers, nor are they regular big white boards. Interactive whiteboards have been becoming more popular in business environments, providing a way to keep everyone in the meeting involved and information delivered clearly.

According to surveys, many workers feel like they waste valuable hours each week in meetings. Even if the meetings are for something important, without engaging the attendees, it will still seem like a waste. As such, businesses have started using interactive whiteboards, capturing the attention of the meeting attendees with creative and eye-catching content.

While interactive whiteboards are more commonly seen in classrooms, they can work just as well in a business environment. They can be used with touchscreens or pens, no matter what one’s level of technical ability is, and present all sorts of data. From presentations to documents to even movie files, an interactive whiteboard can be just as useful as any other projector during a meeting, if not more.

"Whether it is for presenting annual accounts, business plans, or brainstorming ideas for a new campaign, the interactive whiteboard offers a number of possibilities and we are seeing an increase in customers from the business sphere,” says David Lyons, IT and AV Manager at the Remark Group. However, it is important that the installation of the board is carried out by an AV professional, with the appropriate network cabling and AV installation undertaken. Electronic whiteboards can be powerful training and communication tools, if effectively installed and appropriately utilized, and we predict there will be many more businesses using them to gain a competitive edge in 2013."

It doesn’t matter how important a meeting is if the attendees are drifting off to sleep in the middle of it. While it’s not that difficult for people to remain professional in business environments and during meetings, let’s face it, more interesting and amusing meetings are just better for employees, which makes them better for business.
