Amillan awarded Gold accreditation by SMART

SMART Technologies has awarded Amillan its ‘Smart Room System for Microsoft Lync’ Specialisation, making Amillan an accredited Gold Partner.

Gold Partner status is awarded to partners who pioneer the Smart Room System; a turnkey solution that simplifies the collaboration experience for both virtual and face-to-face participants. The system provides seamless online collaboration through the sharing of real-time video, voice and data.

Amillan is known as an expert in the field of unified communications and collaboration with a large and varied customer base. The organisation has established its competency and maintained its consistency and this is being recognised by SMART with its Gold Acrreditation.

Amillan runs an internal Lync infrastructure across its business and has installed the SMART Room System for Microsoft Lync at its own executive briefing suite in Solihull for live demonstrations. The large system has two 70” displays in place giving an unparalleled ultra-wide 109 field of view, the solution is also able to give a panoramic picture of the room without the need to adjust the HD camera – important in a room that can seat over 60 people during product demonstrations.

Richard Reid, director at Amillan, says: “We provide and integrate the full Lync eco-system of Microsoft Lync itself, and all the complimentary products around it that enable and promote its use in the workplace. Group collaboration is an essential ingredient and we have identified the SMART Room System as an important addition to this eco-system.”
