In the modern business environment, technology can be your best friend or your worst enemy, depending on how you choose to approach the acquisition and integration of technology for your organisation. In my experience, there are companies that are more than willing to spend without a thought on a 20-seater boardroom table, high-end furniture complete with imported coffee machine.
Wendy serves as personal assistant to the managing director of the South African branch of a major international stationary company, situated in Germiston, Johannesburg. The company has invested in a single Barco ClickShare as a stand-alone unit for their boardroom.
Over the past eighty years, Barco has grown into a global force in the AV technology market, with an annual turnover of $1.102 billion and more than 3500 employees across 90 countries. In 2012, Barco added to their reputation as a world leader in visualisation technology with the launch of ClickShare, a wireless presentation solution that Barco promised would revolutionise the modern meeting room experience. Over the past five years, Barco’s ClickShare wireless presentation solution has been adopted by some of the world’s leading enterprises, and South African business is following the trend.
