Huawei Launches IdeaHub To Offer Improved Remote Working Features to Businesses in Africa
As businesses rally from the effects of the Covid-19, Huawei has launched a product which is designed to help businesses get more productivity out of meetings and collaborations.
The product, named IdeaHub, was launched during an online event. IdeaHub was showcased to business leaders, representatives, and ICT experts from about 300 African companies with the intent of sharing how it works. The theme for the product launch was “Huawei IdeaHub-Intelligence at Your Fingertips”.
The Covid-19 pandemic has forced businesses to lean more towards remote working structures which necessitates a lot of screen sharing, teleconferencing, and online workspace communication. For businesses that want to leverage the digitisation already acquired, IdeaHub provides a way to inculcate features of remote working into physical meetings.
The product is essentially a screen on stands. It has multiple features integrated into it including multi-screen collaboration between mobiles and PCs, interactive whiteboard, remote collaboration, FHD video conferencing and built-in HD AppGallery.
It has a whiteboard feature with low latency that allows people to write out their points for all to see. On-screen nametags are attached to online users, and two-way annotation is provided in the whiteboard feature.
According to Liao Yong, President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group in Southern Africa, IdeaHub is “disruptive since it can break down silos and enable employees to share ideas like never before.”
“It is commercially, and even culturally ‘constructive’ as it could help companies build up an intelligent work environment where ideas and information can flow more freely for enhanced efficiency and lower operation costs.”
With a smarter approach to meetings, taking notes, and collaborating in the workspace, businesses can seize the opening presented by Covid-19 to restructure work processes and digitise work culture.
