The X2O Platform

The intuitive X2O platform empowers everyone to create dynamic channels for any screen.

With the X2O platform, users communicate relevant messages to the right person, at the right time, and on the right device using a concept of channels.  Users can build channels and link them to multiple inputs, then publish them to one or multiple endpoints.  These dynamic and eye-catching channels not only break through information clutter but provide critical and timely information that can then be immediately acted upon, leading to faster decision-making and directly impacting the bottom line. Content is rendered dynamically in real-time at each end-point, which means network traffic is kept low and updates can be delivered to any screen within seconds. Building your own communications network has never been so easy.

X2O.Join: Connected Desktop

With X2O.Join, every screen in your organization becomes part of the real-time X2O visual communications network. This means any content can be shared with any user instantly, wherever they are.

From company news and announcements to real-time interactive dashboards showing key business metrics, X2O.Join gets the right information to the right users at the right time.
