)-- The Future Of Work Is Only a Touch Away
The computer has revolutionized individual work, but how can globally distributed teams cooperate and at the same time ensure that everybody is talking about the same things? At IBM Connect 2013 German company foresee introduced the Social Collaboration Room. This groundbreaking integrated work environment for collaboration and social communication consists of an interactive table with cutting edge multi touch hardware (InteracTable), a vertical screen (Screenmate), an advanced video conferencing software and an intuitive multi touch application. The result? Instant connection of workforces from anywhere on any device, shared documents, video conferencing, innovative interfaces and instant meetings at the finger tips of collaborating teams.
Frank Sonder, CEO and Co-Founder of foresee, and his team are proud that their company was part of the Opening General Session at IBM Connect and that the Social Collaboration Room was nominated First Finalist of the show: "It was a great honor that we were invited to be part of one of the most important events of IBM's software division. foresee is especially proud of having been part of the opening session where we were able to present our solution which in the end was nominated for the Best of Show and Chief Technology Officer Award." Frank Sonder's session "Collaboration Re-Invented" was as well received by the audience in Orlando as the presentation of the Social Collaboration Room itself.
Full Integration With Solutions By IBM Connections and IBM Sametime
The setup of the Social Collaboration Room by foresee allows users to intuitively work on documents using multi touch gestures and share them with other locations. The magic does not stop there though. By integrating community members, activities and content streams it is possible to create tasks, link information or import content from any third party application. The Social Collaboration Room by foresee is fully integrated with IBM Connections and IBM Sametime. This way, a meeting does not end with every participant taking home a pile of memos. Instead the Social Collaboration Room and the corresponding software solutions allow for an ongoing collaboration leading to more effective projects and better business. The solution can be used out-of-the-box with IBM SmartCloud for Social Business. foresee and its German business partner GIS provide various deployment options including IBM SmartCloud.
Collaboration Room Is A Win For Continental Tire Germany
Continental Tire Germany, part of Continental AG, is one of the first companies to put the Social Collaboration Room to use in multiple locations. Continental was looking for a solution to make coordination more effective, improve collaboration, reduce travel costs and overcome the limitations of available video conferencing solutions. The company found all this and more in the Social Collaboration Room. Continental executives now have a means to intuitively, quickly and securely engage in team collaboration from anywhere and on any device.
