Board rooms are the primary place for the decisions that drive a company. It’s where ideas are discussed, rejected and finally accepted. They’re also where many cups of coffee reach their ends as bored members listen to dismal presentations each one after the other. Modern technology in the workplace can make meetings more productive and more collaborative.

The right technology for meeting rooms will give directors of boards the tools they need to communicate with one another and their remote viewers. These digital tools not only enhance collaboration, but also make sure that all board participants are actively involved and participate equally, regardless of their location or device.

A portal for boards is among the top tools boards can make use of. Board portals are fast growing to become the most relied-on technology for boardrooms due to their capability to offer a full suite of tools to help boards prepare for meetings, work together during meetings, and also communicate afterwards.

Another key piece of technology in the boardroom is interactive whiteboards. These interactive whiteboards allow teams to brainstorm, develop their ideas and create exciting presentations that keep meeting attendees active. They’re often designed to work alongside video conferencing software and incorporate the most current in software for creating content. BenQ’s EZWrite suite is an example of a software suite that lets you draw, write, or add information to your screen in real-time.

Your meetings will be more productive than ever with the right conference room technology. For more information on the most efficient tools for your business, reach out to a specialized DGI consultant.
