The new product enhances collaboration with for users in remote locations, enabling them to follow and take part in collaborative sessions in real time. “Notes from Smart kapp appear real-time on your own device as well as remote participants’ computers, tablets or smart phones.” the company says
Smart kapp can be wirelessly connected to mobile devices and doesn’t require additional IT integration.
“Smart kapp creates a brand new category that is set to open up incredible possibilities for the millions of people who regularly share information on a dry erase board,” said Neil Gaydon, president and CEO of Smart Technologies. “Smart kapp relegates dry-erase boards to a bygone era and brings the ability to simply share information to a whole new level.”
