Kramer has entered into a worldwide distribution agreement with EventBoard. The EventBoard solution from Kramer will be on display in booth number F20 in Hall 1 at the ISE show, being held at the RAI in Amsterdam from February 9th through February 12th.
EventBoard is promoted as a subscription-based software as a service (SaaS), enterprise-grade cloud management solution. The concept is that displays are mounted outside of meeting rooms to inform any one of that meeting rooms meeting status and availability for future meetings. The EventBoard partnership represents Kramer’s first entry into SaaS, which Kramer believes will become a big part of an IT evolved and converged Pro AV market.
Kramer customers will benefit from EventBoard’s intuitive meeting scheduling and streamlined resource booking, aspects of business that have long been recognized as a enhancer of productivity in companies, regardless of size.
Kramer channel partners will benefit from Kramer’s commitment to technological solutions that demonstrate a clear return on investment to their customers, while simultaneously providing valued channel partners with recurring revenue stream opportunities. The EventBoard distribution agreement is part of a new strategic direction for Kramer and represents a focus on more and more enterprise AV/IT solutions for the converged Pro AV market.
EventBoard supports all major enterprise calendaring platforms including Exchange, Office 365 and Google Apps. The intuitive room scheduling software was designed to run on existing iOS devices, such as Apple’s iPad and iPad mini, thereby functioning as an interactive display screen.
Beyond scheduling capabilities, EventBoard is promoted to also include an analytics framework that quantifies workplace activities by illuminating data that has previously been unavailable. This type of data includes knowing when and with what frequency conference rooms are being utilized, tracking average occupancy rates, and identifying underused and overused resources and spaces. EventBoard Analytics helps customers identify positive and negative trends in their workplace that will allow them to make important operational, financial and technological improvements.
