Elo Touch Solutions (Elo) announced this week a new line called ‘Elo @ The Office,’ with all products aimed at providing pre-packaged solutions for common building display applications. The bundles combine Elo’s 42-inch to 70-inch all-in-one touch computing hardware with software to enable cloud-based collaboration, digital whiteboard, building directory and virtual receptionist applications. Elo @ The Office partners include Cisco WebEx, Citrix GoToMeeting, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Skype, ReadyTalk and other future cloud-based applications such as QlikView and salesforce.com.
The line is divided up into four main categories of products:
- Elo Corporate Collaboration Solution: A 70-inch touch screen with integrated Intel Core i5 computer running Microsoft Windows that mounts less than 4 inches from the wall and requires only AC power and a network connection.
- Elo Digital Whiteboard Solution: Elo’s 70-inch touch screen integrated with Hitachi StarBoard software.
- Elo Directory Solution: Elo’s 55-inch touch screen integrated with JibeStream NovoTouch software (wayfinding software). The NovoTouch interface allows for directory listing templates and 3D maps to build way finding applications quickly.
- Elo Virtual Receptionist Solution: Elo’s 42-inch touch screen integrated with WinTech’s ALICE receptionist software (allows employees to communicate with visitors in the lobby from their desks using face-to-face video or audio-only conversations). Guests are automatically greeted and told how to use the interactive directory without losing the personal touch of human customer service.
Elo @ The Office solutions will all start shipping within 30 days. Here are all the specifics.
