Solstice Multi-user Collaboration

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and that time is money.  The time saved when all meeting participants can simultaneously see and share pictures to brainstorm or reach a decision is a quantifiable factor that can dramatically impact a company’s bottom line.  Every single minute wasted in a 4-person meeting where the average attendee salary is $60,000 costs the company $2.  These wasted minutes, spent hunting for a video cable or laboriously switching context by transferring presenter permissions to another attendee, add up quickly and prevent efficient knowledge transfer and decision making.  Some studies place the total estimated loss due to meeting inefficiencies as high as $37B every year.  The cost isn’t just monetary – employee engagement and satisfaction decreases as perceived time wasted increases.

How does multi-user collaboration work using Solstice?

Solstice allows multiple users to share content and control the display from their own devices.  In this video, two design consultants meet for a quick brainstorm before a client kick-off.  Both users can share inspirational images to the display from their own devices and collaborate in real-time.  It is easy to switch between images even though they were shared by different users, so the designers can discuss specific design elements of each building without time-consuming context switches or passing devices back and forth.  Over the course of the video, the designers coordinated on concepts for the interior and exterior of the building, discussed a non-traditional roof shape that the client had emailed one of them right before the meeting, and were able to compare that shape against the required interior layout before ultimately deciding to propose a more traditional overall structure with interesting, geometric details on the exterior.  No paper was wasted printing these images out, no time was wasted trying to look at all the content simultaneously, and the designers were able to efficiently collaborate using Solstice.
