Breakthrough rapid deployment solution addresses customer needs to share knowledge and bring collaboration virtually anywhere in response to the COVID-19 workplace changes
Rockleigh, N.J. – June 5, 2020 — Crestron, a global leader in workplace technology, announced its newest addition to the company’s award-winning line of Unified Communications (UC) conferencing technology, the Crestron Flex R-Series. A first-of-its-kind, rapid deployment solution, Crestron Flex R-Series is a mobile UC system that brings collaboration where it’s needed most, closing the distance between remote teams wherever they may be.
In today’s climate, rooms are radically changing with an exponential demand for meetings that utilize video conferencing. Crestron has remained one step ahead by developing a mobile UC solution that enables customers to quickly and easily share information and work collaboratively. Crestron Flex R-Series offers unprecedented versatility by eliminating the costly, time-consuming installation process, allowing organizations to better anticipate the evolving needs of the places people meet.
“The need to share knowledge and work collaboratively is more critical than ever,” said Andrew Gross, Director of Sales, UC Enterprise. “Our Crestron Flex R-Series delivers a rapid deployment, social distancing-friendly solution that creates a productive workplace and can be utilized anywhere, quickly and efficiently. Beyond deployment, Crestron's suite of management tools ensure customers can manage more endpoints with the same resources, helping companies tackle the need to rapidly expand their video conferencing footprint.”
Collaboration in just a few simple steps
