Interactive Whiteboards Can Be Employed in the Meeting Room, Not Just the Classroom, Says Remark Group

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 13, 2013) - In order to hold attention during presentations, an increasing number of business people are utilising interactive whiteboards as a medium for getting their message across in a captivating and inspiring manner in meetings, finds the Remark Group, an innovator in intelligent business technology.

Research undertaken in May of last year by Epson found that workers felt that approximately two hours and 39 minutes were wasted in meetings during an average week, equating to a cost of around £26 billion to the UK economy. This demonstrates the importance of ensuring that meetings are compelling and efficient, as well as informative. More businesses are using interactive whiteboards to make meetings more effective. By allowing the user to develop creative, captivating content using colour and engaging graphics, it is more likely colleagues will retain interest.

More commonly perceived as a tool for the classroom, the interactive whiteboard has a number of functions which make it an essential device for business people. Its simplicity can be embraced by those at varying levels of technical competence, and pens or touch screen can be used depending on preference. They are suitable for all manner of business tasks, including presentations, processing documents, accessing materials online and projecting movie files from a PC.

Remark's IT and AV Manager, David Lyons, comments: "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. 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 utilised, and we predict there will be many more businesses using them to gain a competitive edge in 2013."
