foresee Introduces SOCIAL COLLABORATION ROOM At IBM Connect

Today's work environments profit from new means of getting things done. Collaboration and social communication are key to successful business. German company foresee, First Finalist for Best of Show of IBM Connect 2013, has introduced its SOCIAL COLLABORATION ROOM at IBM Connect in Orlando. With this ground breaking new work environment, foresee is perfectly in tune with this year's conference slogan: "Get social. Do business."

The Future Of Work Is Only a Touch Away

The computer has revolutionized individual work, but how can globally distributed teams cooperate and at the same time ensure that everybody is talking about the same things? At IBM Connect 2013 German company foresee introduced the SOCIAL COLLABORATION ROOM. This groundbreaking integrated work environment consists of an interactive table with cutting edge multi-touch hardware (InteracTable), a vertical screen (Screenmate) and an intuitive multi-touch application. The result? Instant connection of workforces from anywhere on any device, shared documents, video conferencing, innovative interfaces and instant meetings at the finger tips of collaborating teams.

Frank Sonder, CEO and Co-Founder of foresee, and his team are proud that their company was part of the Opening General Session at IBM Connect: "It was a great honor that we were invited to be part of this important event. foresee is especially proud of having been part of the opening session where we were able to present our solution which in the end was nominated First Finalist for the BEST OF SHOW AWARD." Frank Sonder's session "Collaboration Re-Invented" was as well received by the audience in Orlando as the presentation of the SOCIAL COLLABORATION ROOM itself.

Full Integration With IBM Connections and IBM Sametime

The setup of the SOCIAL COLLABORATION ROOM by foresee allows users to intuitively work on documents using multi-touch gestures and share them with other locations. The magic does not stop there though. By integrating community members, activities and content streams it is possible to create tasks, link information or import content from any third party application. The SOCIAL COLLABORATION ROOM is fully integrated with IBM Connections and IBM Sametime. This way, a meeting does not end with every participant taking home a pile of memos. Instead the SOCIAL COLLABORATION ROOM and the corresponding software allow for an ongoing collaboration leading to more effective projects and better business. The solution can be used out-of-the-box with IBM SmartCloud. foresee and its German partner GIS provide various deployment options.

COLLABORATION ROOM Is A Win For Continental Tire Germany

Continental Tire Germany, part of Continental AG, is one of the first companies to put the COLLABORATION ROOM to use in multiple locations. Continental was looking for a solution to make coordination more effective, improve collaboration, reduce travel costs and overcome the limitations of available video conferencing solutions. Continental executives now have a means to intuitively, quickly and securely engage in team collaboration from anywhere on any device.
