Last week I was visiting one of our largest partners at their headquarters for a business review. All parties had spent countless hours preparing their presentations, pivoting their pivot tables, analyzing the business ten ways to Sunday. When the moment arrived and all parties assembled, I go to plug in my laptop – fishing through a spaghetti junction of cords while searching for the right adapter… praying it was going to work and… the screen was blank… totally blank. Ten minutes later with some sort of control system voodoo, there was finally an image. I wondered what the collective salaries were of the 15 people in that meeting waiting for that meeting to start. I wondered how many meetings go on in the dozens of conference rooms each day in that building that experience the same thing – plagued by the one thing that should be so simple – to just display the image (oh and collaboration is nice too!)
This is not a Barco ClickShare commercial. This is a bona fide – I see the light – cue the choir – testimonial! If you haven’t seen Barco ClickShare, you can’t appreciate the simplicity with which it solves a myriad of problems, including those of the aforementioned story. Our control system BDM Jamie Finnegan can explain it so eloquently. We have demo units you can borrow to experience it for yourself. Try it, you’ll never want to use anything else.
Looking into our conference room, I’m wondering where our Barco ClickShare unit is (probably out on demo loan). I’m calling the warehouse today to get a permanently unmovable unit. We practice what we preach – now cue the choir!
