Microsoft Surface Hub the future of collaboration is here

Unlock the power of your people with tech that brings meetings to life.

If there is one silver lining from the pandemic we’d like to celebrate, it’s the accelerated adoption of cloud tools that help teams collaborate more effectively and from anywhere.

In the past year we have seen so many businesses radically improve productivity by getting video conferencing and collaboration right. Staff can now work more flexibly from home, on-site or any other location. This change, long overdue for many companies, has reduced downtime, improved operational efficiency, boosted connectivity between interstate offices, saved money and minimised the risk of relying on on-site assets.
But as technology is always one step ahead, the reality is Microsoft Teams Calling for Office 365 is just the beginning of digital transformation for the modern-day hybrid office.

Cue the arrival early this year of the second generation of the Microsoft Surface Hub family, Microsoft Surface Hub S2 For Business.

Like a shared, floating PC with more collaboration features than any device your staff have laid their hands on, this virtual whiteboard-on-wheels really does take interactive meetings, video conferencing and remote teamwork to a whole new dimension.

It is no exaggeration to say a tool like this could be a game-changer for improving team cohesion and communication flow, and enhancing the way staff develop and execute their ideas. And what business doesn’t pine for all of that?

Hub S2 is essentially everything you could ask for to conduct a frictionless, immersive meeting with on-site staff, as well as remote team members dialing in from home or other office locations. Sixty percent lighter than its predecessor, Hub S2’s sleek, ultra-thin surface has one-touch access to natively run Microsoft Whiteboard and all the familiar Microsoft 365 apps including Teams, Office and Skype Calling for Business.

Every detail has been designed to make remote teamwork as vivid, interactive and seamless as possible – from the neat snap-back design of the detachable 4K camera to the precision-inking pen that tidies up your handwriting.

As a results-driven systems integrator hovering on the bleeding edge, we love nothing more than helping our clients make the right technology investments at the right time.
