Kaptivo Business Edition Improves Whiteboard Collaboration

Kaptivo will showcase Kaptivo Business Edition at Booth 1239 during Enterprise Connect

SAN MATEO, CALIF., March 18, 2019 – Kaptivo, creator of the world’s best-selling whiteboard collaboration system, today announced Kaptivo Business Edition (www.kaptivo.com) for organizations with smaller deployments who want to experience the magic of Kaptivo’s whiteboard collaboration system at a lower price point. Kaptivo, which was recently named a finalist for the Best Communications/Collaboration Device Award by Enterprise Connect, will showcase Kaptivo Business Edition during Enterprise Connect in Orlando, March 18-21, 2019.   

Improving the collaboration experience

Whiteboards are a ubiquitous communication tool that enables the transfer of knowledge, but trends within the workforce have made storing and sharing the information captured on whiteboards challenging. Kaptivo uses patented digital image processing to render, capture and stream a “perfect” version of the whiteboard that is viewable via the Kaptivo web-based app on any device or shared live via video conferencing systems such as BlueJeans, Cisco, LifeSize, Polycom, Zoom, and others.

“Everyone uses whiteboards, the question is, how do you use a physical whiteboard remotely?” said Beau Huiskens, CEO of Taurus Fabrication, a company specializing in laser cutting and metal fabrication for top auto manufacturers. “We work with teams in different locations around the world. Kaptivo enables us to not only share information, ideas, and diagrams from whiteboards but also to save and archive that information so that nothing is lost.”

By converting any whiteboard into an affordable digital collaboration system, Kaptivo simplifies the way information is shared during meetings, lectures or brainstorms for creative, executive, financial, engineering, technical teams, and more, at businesses and schools. Kaptivo Business Edition features include:

  • Snapshots: Kaptivo automatically captures snapshots when major edits are made but users can also create, save and download snapshots
  • Timeline slide deck: Kaptivo automatically chronicles whiteboard sessions in real-time that are viewable as a slide deck    
  • One-click integration with video conferencing systems (may require KaptivoCast accessory)
  • Share to productivity apps such as Slack, Trello, MS Teams, and WebEx Teams
  • Share to Learning Management Systems such as Google Classroom or Canvas and Lecture Capture Systems from Kaltura, Panopto, and others

“Whiteboards have traditionally been left out of the digital collaboration ecosystem and it’s a huge disruption to the end user collaborative experience,” said David Hsieh, CEO of Kaptivo. “Kaptivo Business Edition makes it easy and affordable for businesses to digitize the whiteboard.”

Kaptivo Business Edition is priced at $695 and can be pre-ordered at www.kaptivo.com with product delivery beginning April 2, 2019.
