Smart 's collaboration software in eight languages
Dubai, October 30, 2008
Smart Technologies said it has added seven languages to its Smart Meeting Pro collaboration software to meet the demands of a growing global customer base.
Smart Meeting Pro software now runs in French, German, Spanish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Japanese and Chinese (traditional and simplified) in addition to English.
Business, government and military staff in different countries can instantly start or join a conference, share applications, participate in discussions, brainstorm, and save and distribute work in their own language.
Moving users beyond the low-tech world of projected presentations, flipcharts and dry-erase whiteboards, Smart Meeting Pro software brings meeting rooms into the 21st century, creating time and cost efficiencies in the process.
The software leverages integrated data conferencing to enable fast and simple connections and a more collaborative environment than traditional data sharing.
It also provides a robust level of interactivity in single- or multi-display rooms where everyone can easily participate, regardless of location. The success of the English-only version has led quickly to the addition of seven languages.
Benefits of the software include improved productivity, better decision making, faster connection times, faster distribution of meeting materials, travel savings and reduced environmental impact.
The software works with Smart Board interactive whiteboards, Smart Board interactive displays, Sympodium interactive pen displays, and other training or meeting room products such as computers, DVDs and document cameras.
"Businesses today need teams to collaborate in a variety of ways in order to generate ideas faster, build consensus and accelerate overall development cycles," said Nancy Knowlton, Smart's CEO.
"The addition of seven new languages to Smart Meeting Pro software will enable more multinational enterprises to connect teams easily, regardless of location, and get the job done." - TradeArabia News Service
