Company’s Award-Winning HTML5-Based X2O Platform Delivers a New Way to Work for Improved Enterprise-Wide Communications
MONTREAL — May 14, 2015 — X2O Media, a Barco company, today announced it will showcase enterprise visual communications solutions at the Gartner Digital Workplace Summit 2015, which takes place May 18-20 in Orlando, Florida. Highlighting the versatility of the X2O platform, the company will demonstrate innovative applications built to support today’s mobile and technology-savvy workforce.
Designed to deliver real-time visual communications to the right audience, at the right time, on the right device, the X2O platform transforms enterprises into digital workplaces by providing employees with tools to create dynamic visual channels. Similar to miniature TV networks, channel-based communications allow organizations to turn data linked to internal and external sources such as SharePoint®, SAP, and social media into content-led messaging that is interactive, targeted, and highly engaging.
“Our solutions deliver new and more effective ways to work, a concept that we believe is perfectly aligned with the theme of Gartner’s Digital Workplace Summit,” said David Wilkins, President of X2O Media, a Barco company. “With the X2O platform, organizations can leverage interactive displays, videowalls, desktops, IP phones, tablets, and smartphones in order to make information more relevant to the way today’s employees communicate and collaborate. This creates a connected workforce that is better equipped to make business decisions and be more productive within the digital workplace.”
The X2O platform is easy to use with drag-and-drop tools and scheduling options that streamline the creation and management of data-driven, media-rich channels, which deliver digital engagement and compelling information across the workplace. Enhancing teamwork, visual channels also improve how employees share and collaborate on tasks by leveraging a shared virtual workspace on interactive touchscreens, tablets, smartphones, and desktops.
The X2O enterprise visual communications platform delivers the following solutions:
- A Connected Workplace where users communicate in real time via X2O channels displayed throughout the enterprise on displays, videowalls, mobile devices, and more.
- A Connected Workspace designed for multiple users, where teams collaborate in a shared virtual workspace either online or in huddle spaces — enabling document and desktop sharing, video conversations, polling participation, and more. Powered by the X2O platform, the solution strengthens teamwork by letting users easily engage within a common environment.
- A Connected Desktop for users to view and interact with X2O channels directly from their desktop — improving visual communications within today’s digital enterprise. Specific use cases include company news channels, integrating business information dashboards into workflows, and receiving live alerts at workstations. Connected Desktop also allows employees to collaborate with other team members easily.
- A Connected Workforce allowing organizations to harness the power of the X2O platform to share real-time content with remote workers across campuses and around the globe. This means companies can maintain up-to-date communications across entire workforces, regardless of location.
