Huawei has launched its Ideahub collaboration product in the Sub-Saharan region which is aimed for enterprises.
The IdeaHub is a tool developed by Huawei to enable all-scenario smart office and also be an intelligent endpoint that integrates functions like a multi-screen collaboration between mobiles and PCs, interactive whiteboard, remote collaboration, video conferencing in full HD and an App Gallery.
“It 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,”Liao Yong, President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group in Southern Africa said.
He also said that staying online as a result of COVID-19 will likely become a permanent feature of the corporate culture. This is true since the pandemic has forced some businesses to consider their employees work from home in the meantime as they wait for the COVID-19 pandemic to flatten out or be eradicated.
“One step further, this may well be an opportunity for African firms to drive their organizational digitization by not only investing in IT, but restructuring work processes and digitizing work culture correspondingly. When African entrepreneurs envision the future of their business, the Huawei smart office solutions should have its place,” said Liao.
Companies like Huawei have seen the need to pitch productivity tools like the IdeaHub to companies in this time since it has required more than ever to collaborate remotely. Improving communication and collaboration in organizations will be needed more than ever, and that is why you see companies improving their video conferencing services and businesses wanting to collaborate better remotely.
