After meeting with a Sensory Technologies Solutions Architect to discuss his options, Trustpointe chose RALLY™ as its virtual collaboration system. RALLY™ by Sensory Technologies is next generation, game-changing technology for group communication and collaboration. It easily and seamlessly connects people using any device – room-based videoconferencing systems, laptops, tablets, phones.
While RALLY™ functions independently from mobile devices, Trustpointe opted to integrate the virtual collaboration system into an existing conference room. The space’s sleek integration was designed to empower impactful conversation while simultaneously diminishing the ‘feel’ of technology’s presence. Four Revolab microphones sit in a mobile docking station and can be placed around the conference table based on the number of people engaged in the call. A computer equipped with RALLY™ software is hidden behind a wall-mounted display, and a Vaddio camera is mounted just below the display so that users are comfortably at eye-level with their virtual participants.
A popular feature of RALLY™ is that people can share content while still maintaining eye contact with everyone on the conference call. “Trust is the word most associated with what we do. Trust is our identity,” comments Tim. “Maintaining eye contact with people is critical to me, and I didn’t want to give that up when I’m showing a video or a picture. With RALLY™, you don’t have to. That matters a lot to us.”
RALLY™ virtual coSpaces are unique and perfect for engaging small group meetings, tracking collaborative projects and strengthening personal relationships. No scheduling is needed. People can pop in and out for one-to-one or group video/audio conversations at any time. No advanced scheduling is needed. Meeting agendas, action items, reminders, notes of encouragement – all can be added by any participant using the perpetual chat functionality.
To ease Tim’s concern with using the new technology, RALLY™ comes with the 24-hour support of the Sensory Technologies Client Solution Center (CSC). Live technicians will pick up the phone and certify calls, assist with questions, step RALLY™ users through the process, and proactively help create a richer virtual experience.
