Former competitors partner to bring consumer-like experiences to workplaces
SILICON SLOPES, Utah, Feb. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Teem, a developer of cloud-based meeting tools and analytics helping companies optimize workspace and workplace experiences, is pleased to announce its new partnership with Crestron, the leader in enterprise and home audio-visual solutions and control systems. This partnership benefits clients of both companies: bringing the Teem Workplace Experience Platform’s consumer-like user interfaces to Crestron’s robust and trusted hardware ecosystem.
Teem meeting room booking software will be preinstalled on Crestron audio-visual hardware solutions seamlessly connecting people to places and technology leading to a more efficient and productive workplace. Going beyond meeting room management, Teem is integrating with Crestron connected motion sensors. The integration will allow customers to automate room check-in, occupancy-based booking, huddle space occupancy detection, and more.
“Our vision has always been to create a frictionless workplace experience that easily integrates different enterprise solutions to create a smooth workflow that makes collaboration as simple as possible,” said Derek Newbold, CTO at Teem, “Our partnership with Crestron is the latest manifestation of this, as companies will now be able to experience the best of both worlds; an enterprise-ready suite of AV hardware products with an intuitive SaaS platform offering consumer-like interactions.”
“This partnership brings Teem’s suite of tools to Crestron’s AV hardware, enhancing both solutions to improve and streamline overall collaboration at work. Users of the joint solution can experience a robust and elegant room booking experience,” said Robert Bavolacco, Manager of Partnerships at Crestron, “All while leveraging the amazing AV capabilities of Crestron control systems.”
The Teem announcement comes hot on the heels of recent strategic product integrations, including a partnership with Alexa for Business, which Amazon CTO Werner Vogels announced in November 2017, bringing a voice interface into the workplace. Teem also recently announced integrated solutions with Enlighted and Current by GE connected motion sensors.
Teem’s meeting room and collaboration management suite will be available on Crestron’s enterprise AV solutions beginning in late April 2018.
The Teem Workplace Experience Platform integrates dynamic suites of tools into the physical and digital workplace. Employee-focused meeting tools, conference room displays, visitor management, and more work together to surface data on how space and facilities are used. Innovative companies—like Box, LinkedIn, GE, Boston Consulting Group, and Airbnb—use Teem to increase employee productivity and facilitate data-driven decision making.
