ABCOM Solutions joins SMART Technologies to launch whiteboards
The SMART kapp whiteboard enables content sharing with anyone, from anywhere in the world
ABCOM Solutions has partnered with interactive whiteboard manufacturer, SMART Technologies, to introduce the SMART kapp whiteboard.
The SMART kapp whiteboard is a modern update on the conventional dry-erase boards used in classrooms and boardrooms. It enables users to save and share notes whilst using an app on an Android or iOS device.
Jamal Sabri, group CEO said: "Signing up with SMART, we intend to move and upgrade our offerings in the area of technological solutions for education, hospitality and corporate sectors."
Presenters and teachers are able to use the interactive whiteboard immediately without the need for IT integration. The session enables up to 250 participants to see what is being written down, erased and scribbled, whether they are in the classroom or not.
The SMART kapp devices come with a snapshot feature providing users with the flexibility to write more, save content as a screenshot, share with participants and then erase the content from the board to move to a new screen. This feature has replaced traditional flip charts which has resulted in reduced paper usage, thus making it environmentally-friendly.
Learners and students can save and email lesson notes on phones, tablets and PCs, allowing them to focus on the discussion rather than taking notes. Plus, class notes can be saved as snapshots on mobile devices and then stored onto online shared drives or other storage accounts.
The SMART kapp whiteboards also come with an option to protect sessions with a PIN code. Shared lessons and class notes are immediately deleted when the device is disconnected.
Harold Fernandes, general manager at ABCOM Solutions added: "There couldn't be a better time to introduce SMART kapp whiteboards to our customers. We are witnessing a shift across the board in adoption of modern technologies and tools used for classroom teaching and learning. This is true particularly for education, corporate and hospitality sectors. Given its pioneering history, unbeatable value and features, we are positive SMART kapp will play a decisive role in enabling this change."
It is available in two sizes; the 42" portrait whiteboard is best suited for meeting and seminar rooms, conferences and presentation environments, whereas the 84" landscape whiteboard is better suited for educational and corporate environments.
