“Our Collaboration Assessment Centers showcase the many benefits of the Lync Room System solution,” said Advanced Co-President David Weatherhead. “Microsoft Lync is one of the best solutions available for corporate communications, and we are dedicated to promoting its potential.”
As an integrated, turn-key hardware solution, the Microsoft Lync Room System combines SMART’s industry-leading interactive displays with program-enabled audio, video and data collaboration capabilities.
