Regular readers will know Rapid have been recommending SMART to customers for 16 years, a fact that we are very proud of. As the UK’s first Smart Gold Partner we have delivered some really cutting edge Smart solutions to some of the world’s biggest companies. SMART solutions have been about integrating the customers IT and systems into the meeting room but we have always felt there was a gap in the market for meeting rooms where it didn’t need to be all singing and dancing, a room where the flipchart and a couple of chairs existed, where there was no projector or HD Panel. Well it looks like Smart have filled that gap with their latest offering the SMART kapp. This is basically a board not dissimilar to a write and wipe board with a difference it allows you to save the notes on the board and share the notes across the cloud. It doesn’t need a PC or for that matter a projector or TV. The board uses a normal write and wipe pen on to a tough tempered glass surface and comes in 42”and 84” board sizes (84” available later this year). It means you never have to photograph your flipchart or write and wipe board again.
You merely plug into the wall and instantly you can see the notes that appear on the board on your mobile phone or tablet by simply joining the board via a printed QR code on the board, additionally you can invite other users to join the meeting globally via a web link. The remote user needs NO software and view the notes as they appear in real time in the meeting room via their browser. This video shows it capabilities very well. This effectively saves time and money in travel, translating notes and helps make decision making quicker! Its simplicity and functionality is maybe the reason it won Best of Show at ISE 2015 last week !
The SMART kapp isn’t too heavy on the budget either coming in at £599 Plus VAT we are picking up quite a few orders from existing SMART users who don’t require all the functionality a SMARTBoard or SMART Room System offers. So if you have a room that would fit the SMART kapp, buy it …..or request a demo today.
