    It was the simplest product requirement I have ever written. Just one sentence: “Bring Telepresence to the desktop and make it CEO-proof”. When we launched in March 2010 industry analyst Andrew Davies at Wainhouse Research wrote: “For most of my life I wanted a Porsche, now I think I want a Tandberg EX90 instead.” At a time where PC-based video was still pretty useless and the iPad was not even invented, it became very clear to us that we had totally nailed it.

  • The Rise of Remote Education

    Among the many things COVID-19 has exposed about our society, the varying degrees of technological preparedness among schools ranks high. When stay at home issues were ordered, many schools were able to quickly adapt to remote learning, while others realized they lacked the resources and solutions needed to ensure student success outside of the classroom. What once seemed to be a non-urgent, multi-year lift for school districts to upgrade has now become a necessity for ensuring that students don’t fall behind. Fortunately, there is great opportunity for VARs and agents to work with school systems to help them enter a more digital world, whether that be a complete overhaul or a few minor upgrades.

    Anyone that’s been to the grocery store lately understands that this is not your mother’s grocery experience. Gone are the days of sipping coffee while walking up and down the aisles deciding what to make for dinner. The grocery store looks very different these days – from one-way aisles to pre-sanitized shopping carts to face masks and gloves.

  • Why Healthcare Technology is Never a Purchase

    It’s a fair bet that no patient has ever gone to their healthcare provider and said, “I need to buy an x-ray” or “I’m shopping for casts.” People go to the emergency room, or make an appointment to see their doctor, because they have a problem. They might be experiencing pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, or another pressing issue. And while ultimately there will be payment for services and products, most medical professionals would never consider their patients to be customers. Rather, patients go to their healthcare provider, the medical expert, to diagnose and advise them of what they need to treat their symptoms, to cure their illness, and solve their problem.

    As parents, we’re always seeking to keep our children safe. The world they’re growing up in today is unlike the one we knew. The times have changed, and so have the dangers. But with this change has also come evolving technologies and solutions that can help keep our children safe, even when we’re not there. When appropriately and strategically deployed in schools, physical security solutions could deter bullying, vandalism, acts of violence and even unhealthy and risky behaviors such as vaping (yes, there are now “vape detectors” that can detect nicotine vapor not discerned by smoke detectors).

  • How Mobility is Radically Changing Healthcare

    Healthcare risks are frightening. A baby is misidentified at birth, or when being discharged from the hospital to go home. A patient is given the wrong medication, and has an allergic reaction. A message doesn’t get from the medical staff to a doctor in sufficient time to deal with an emergency. These are only three of the risks that can be reduced in—or even eliminated from— today’s healthcare settings, simply by using the right barcode scanner. But how do you choose the right scanner for your customer? Looking at how they’ll be employed is a good place to start.

  • Zebra + ScanSource, global leaders in the warehouse space

    Warehouse environments—or any rugged environment, for that matter—present specific business challenges that must be addressed. Warehouses, for example, can be inefficient, especially when there are major jumps in volume that occur before systems and infrastructure can be updated. And higher customer demand can take its toll on warehouse employees, as they try to keep up while using outdated processes and technologies. These issues can cause errors in processing orders, increased labor costs, and inferior efficiency—all of which can lead to reduced customer satisfaction. When customers aren’t happy, they often seek new partners they believe will provide better quality service.
