Intel Boosts Meeting Room Modernization at InfoComm

Since we first introduced Intel Unite®, we have been on a mission to work with partners to eliminate meeting room complexity for customers. It’s rewarding to see the continued traction and ROI we’re driving. Internally, our IT department has deployed Intel Unite® in 3,500 meeting spaces around the world (a number that will grow to 4,000). Intel IT estimates that our company has saved 50,000 hours with more efficient meeting-time starts. That number is expected to jump to 180,000 when Intel Unite® is deployed across all 4,000 spaces.

While some organizations have invested hundreds of thousands – or even millions – of dollars in collaboration tools, the meeting room remains the one space where digital transformation is often left behind. That’s why the opportunity to help customers transform meeting spaces is significant – and growing. Gartner* estimates that customer spending on unified communications products will grow to some $43.5 billion by 2020. Moreover, according to Wainhouse Research*, there are somewhere between 40 million and 60 million conference rooms that are in dire need of modernization.
