Exertis is boosting its enterprise audiovisual product suite with the addition of Lenovo’s ThinkSmart Hub 500 and ThinkSmart Hub 700.

Both AV setups aim to enhance collaboration in the workplace, with the ThinkSmart Hub 500 offering support for Skype calls and content sharing with participants and the ThinkSmart Hub 700 providing multiple communication platforms, including Zoom.

Employees, clients and partners can join in with the conversation from any device, anywhere, which means businesses lose less time trying to communicate with both internal and external parties, the company said in a statement. According to research by Cascade Insights, companies are losing up to 15 minutes per meeting trying to get conferencing software set up, making those meetings less productive.

“The ThinkSmart Hub range is designed to enable more efficient meetings together with a collaborative experience to create a more engaged workforce,” Greg Bennett, head of Exertis Pro AV Solutions said.

“Designed for small to medium-sized meeting rooms and huddle spaces, they enable better productivity through their innovative features, simple deployment and ease of use. These solutions will enable our resellers to offer a cost-effective solution that meets the needs of the modern workplace.”

Exertis will be offering the opportunity for its resellers to distribute the solutions to customers alongside its other AR solutions to digitise communication in the workplace.

“The opportunity to distribute the Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub range through its dedicated Pro AV Solutions division is a great fit for these products,” Jane Ashworth, SMB channel director, UK & Ireland said.

“Our portfolio provides resellers with a choice of collaboration solutions that can transform inefficient meeting room spaces of all sizes into productive working environments which help to drive better employee engagement.”
