ClickShare – From Meeting Room Hell to Collaboration Space Heaven!

Let me ask you a question as an IT manager or room steward in your organisation are you constantly getting called to setup a meeting room for users who want to use a projector or display in the room, or you get called to say the image isn’t right on the screen or even worse cables are missing and people can’t connect.


Do you wake up in a cold sweat because the guy from Marketing had to have a MacBook and complains the display connection in the meeting room won’t fit and he’s presenting to the board tomorrow or scream when the boss says he wants to present some stuff off his I-Phone or Samsung Galaxy. Well I hope this blog makes you sleep better (and I’m not talking about my appalling prose!).


We recently took on a product called ClickShare this solution allows you to walk into a meeting room and pick up a USB “Button” and plug it into your Laptop or MacBook…press the button and it’s on the screen wirelessly! It even scales the image if you have a laptop running at 4:3 or 16:10…in the words of the Meer cat “Simples”. Got a Smartphone like an Android or IOS no problem download the App free and use that to share! This is all enabled by a wireless controller in each room that controls the wirelessly cast images. The solution comes in 2 flavours one allows a single device to present to the screen whilst the other allows 4 devices to share their screens at once, if you want to make one image dominant just hold the button down. Got rooms next to each other and your worried that next doors slide show of holiday photos will appear whilst your delivering a quarterly P&L report to the boss, don’t, you can have different rooms on different channels ! And here is the beauty for me of the system just when you are saying to yourself “sounds great Colin until someone takes the button away so they can use it wherever they go in the building like they do with cables…” the button is paired to the controller in that room so if they do take it away its useless elsewhere.


Here are some other stats from existing users

  • 93% confirm that ClickShare improves meeting efficiency
  • 98% have a highly positive attitude towards ClickShare
  • 94% like the ease of use
  • 100% value it in team meetings

So do I have your attention now! So are you going to continue to be tortured in meeting room hell or enjoy the rarefied air of collaboration space heaven…. this is what you and your users want!
