Collaboration within the corporate boardroom or huddle room is steadily becoming more essential to the workplace.

Your clients may need to work with colleagues in a remote location or host a meeting, phone call or video chat with multiple members of a team.

There are many products and solutions in the market designed to facilitate this kind of unified communication and collaboration. Your job as integrators and dealers is to know these options like the back of your hand so you can make proper suggestions to clients.
