Your Personal Smart Office Collaboration Room
Smart Office eliminates the common hassles that often afflict traditional meeting services – you don’t need to sign-up for every session and send out a different meeting address for every event. Smart Office provides each user with their own personal collaboration room that doesn’t change. If a meeting moves by 30 minutes the meeting invitation doesn’t change. It’s easy to quickly extend a meeting to additional co-workers or guests by forwarding the meeting URL or use the meeting tools built-in to a Smart Office UC client. Either way, guests can join with a desktop or mobile client or just a web browser. Once connected, guests can hear and see each other, use group chat for sidebar discussions and of course, share screens/content, chat.
Your Room Your Rules
To be productive collaboration users need to stay focused and engaged. Seeing body language and non-verbal cues offer tremendous benefits over a traditional audio-only conference call. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean participants can’t get distracted. Thankfully Smart Office gives moderator’s powerful tools including:
- Mute Audio - per person, all participants (with personal override) and all participants
- Mute Video - per person, all participants (with personal override) and all participants
- Remove participant
- PIN function to secure rooms
- Lock conference (to preclude new attendees)
You’ll never have to beg participants to mute themselves when the dog barks or they enter a wind tunnel from their mobile phone
