CMIT Solutions Launches ‘CMIT Impression: Visual Collaboration Made Easy’ For Small Businesses

Use of Mondopad, MeetMe video conferencing, any-to-any platform will revolutionize small business communication

December 19, 2011 // // CMIT Solutions, a leading managed service IT provider for small businesses, has unveiled a new package that will transform the way small businesses communicate and operate.

CMIT Impression combines enterprise-class collaboration -- including video conferencing, whiteboarding and interactive presentations -- with a 55-inch, touch-optimized tablet and a conferencing bridge that transcends operating systems. The bridge allows users to see each other, talk, share documents and view presentations using any video platform from anywhere in the world.

CMIT Solutions calls it “Visual Collaboration Made Easy,” and it represents a massive step forward for easy-to-use technology available to small businesses. Traditionally, small business owners have been slow to adopt video conferencing because of the inconsistent quality of consumer-grade systems and the prohibitive price of enterprise-level offerings, causing them to rely on the traditional conference call.

Small business owners and employees are traveling less and relying more on telecommuting, driving the need for a superior version of video conferencing: visual collaboration. CMIT Solutions is leading the market’s adoption of a higher-quality visual collaboration tool previously out of reach for most small businesses.

CMIT Impression solves the problem through a pair of technology partners: California-based Vidtel, whose cloud-based, high-definition MeetMe video conferencing system provides up to 12 users on a conferencing “bridge”; and Oregon-based InFocus, whose 55-inch Mondopad giant tablet has a touch screen, digital whiteboarding and high-quality audio and is powered by an integrated Windows 7 Pro PC. CMIT Solutions has worked closely with InFocus in recent months in preparation for the company’s general Mondopad launch, demonstrating CMIT Solutions’ growing influence in the industry.

The combination allows small business owners, colleagues and clients to easily talk, share documents and take part in interactive presentations without being in the same location. CMIT Impression offers everything an enterprise-class video conferencing system does, at a competitive price and across any popular video-chat application. CMIT Impression includes collaboration features such as a shared whiteboard, annotation and document sharing, which allows multiple parties to share documents through an intuitive, user-friendly interface.

“This is a day we’re going to remember,” said CMIT Solutions President and CEO Jeff Connally, a former IBM executive. “I was at IBM when we unveiled our first low-cost small business computer, which was a breakthrough that transformed the industry. I was around when IBM launched the first PC, another milestone. I will tell you that nothing I’ve experienced in my years in technology is nearly as exciting as what we have in front of us today!”

CMIT Solutions believes small businesses that use CMIT Impression will drastically reduce their travel expenses and use the system as a springboard for greater productivity.

“When you engage people visually, you solve problems much more effectively,” said CMIT Solutions COO Frank Picarello. “What visual collaboration means for the small business marketplace is being able to connect and collaborate easily anywhere, anytime and solve problems a different way … This is a great thing for small businesses, and it’s occurring for the first time in our industry.”
