Delivering a flawless start to any meeting, Acendo Core enables one-click Skype for Business meeting launch, document sharing, web browsing, room scheduling, and more, directly from the meeting space touch display or keyboard and mouse.
The start screen has everything a user needs when they walk into the space. They can join Skype for Business meetings without having to find a link or meeting invite, perform a variety of space scheduling tasks, and view documents from the web, network drive, or USB with built-in document viewers. Acendo Core simplifies scheduling. With direct integration into Microsoft Exchange, the start screen shows the state of the room. Is the room available, Book it right from the start screen. Is it busy, Browse for a nearby room and book that room. It even delivers a warning when the meeting is about to end so users can extend the time, find another room, or wrap up the meeting so the next group can start on time.
