Sharp introduces Synappx Collaboration Hub to strengthen hybrid meetings


A smart subscription service designed for the hybrid workplace to run smarter meetings with better collaboration

London, 6 May 2022Sharp today announces the launch of Synappx Collaboration Hub, a smart subscription service that aims to simplify the meeting experience, addressing the changing needs and challenges of hybrid meetings.

Using the power of the cloud, Synappx provides users with an easy to use and consistent interface to run any type of meeting, providing streamlined access to important shared documents via industry leading web platforms and meeting solutions. This simplifies meeting setup to ensure time is spent on achieving meeting objectives, instead of worrying about technology surrounding the meeting.

Many hybrid meetings use a variety of video conferencing equipment and cloud services to connect and share information which can often lead to long set up times, with the average meeting taking up to 10 minutes to start . Synappx Collaboration Hub delivers a consistent user experience whether using a personal or in-room device, removing user concerns when using unknown equipment and services, to ensure meetings start on time. Documents are also easily accessed and shared thanks to consistent processes and menu options when accessing data from various cloud database services.

The Synappx Collaboration Hub ensures all users can effectively manage any meeting space configuration and easily start any type of meeting. Whether meeting from a personal space or operating a sophisticated in-room embedded PC setup in a conference room, users can automatically start a web conference and enable easy access of meeting materials straight from a personal device, ensuring participants’ focus always remains on the content and meeting objectives.

For ease and simple access, the Synappx Go app provides full touchless control of all meeting processes directly from a mobile device, also helping to avoid health risks posed by shared devices and cable equipment. The mobile application ensures users can take full control of all meeting activities, with an easy meeting start and the ability to simply retrieve and present content stored in multiple cloud storage services onto a display.

Rob Davis, Solutions & Services Business Manager at Sharp says, “Sharp recognises the demand for a solution that simplifies the meeting experience and meets the changing needs and challenges of hybrid meetings. Synappx Collaboration Hub is driven by the move from the personal to the shared, providing a consistent and easy user experience for every type of meeting, whether at home or in the boardroom, and ensures that technology does not create barriers, but supports our customers to run smarter meetings with better collaboration.”

Sharp/NEC will showcase the new Sharp Synappx Collaboration Hub at ISE 2022 that will now take place May 10 – 13 in Barcelona. Visitors will find the new display technologies and the team of Sharp/NEC experts in Hall 3 at stand E600.

Synappx Collaboration Hub is available now through Sharp and its partners. For more information visit Synappx™ Collaboration Hub | Sharp
