24th June 2019

Global automotive technology company, Wabco, improve communication and collaboration in their meeting spaces by removing cable clutter, looking beyond laptops and making it easy for guests.

Introduction

With 16,000 employees, including 2,600 engineers in 40 countries, WABCO has evolved an innovative and diverse culture. With this culture WABCO have a drive to increase collaboration across the organisation.

The Problems


One of the biggest struggles was the cabling in the meeting rooms. Rooms were becoming cluttered with various cables for different models of laptops with different ports (VGA, HDMI, mDP and more).

WABCO also noticed they had a less seamless way of collaborating during meetings. Presenters had to take turns in sharing the cable between each other during the meeting and were restricted to sharing their laptops only.

"Montage is really strong when it comes to face-to-face meetings. Our end-user community and guests use it to share content easily in their meetings".

The Solution

With compute power already in the room in the shape of mini-PCs, Wabco went for a software only approach and deployed the Windows version of the Montage software receiver on each PC.

With apps available for Windows, MAc, iOS, Android, Chrome and Airplay, attendees could connect no matter what device they used. MOntage's web-based approach meant that guests such as suppliers and agency staff, could connect and present with minimal fuss and zero IT support.

In addition, with easy to understand joining instructions, attendees and guests could connect easily and quickly without the need for the end user services team to undergo huge outreach efforts to create awareness and train everybody on the software.
