New York, NY, September 12th, 2023 – Airtame, creator of the hardware-enabled SaaS platform that allows seamless collaboration in schools and businesses, today announced a partnership with Orangebox, designer and manufacturer of furniture solutions, to demo their top-tier collaboration solutions in Orangebox’s New York City-based showroom and showcase the seamless communication and collaboration tools now available to educators, administrators, and organizations.
“Partnering with Orangebox is a natural progression of Airtame’s hybrid technology offering to schools, universities, and businesses, as we have strong common interests and are dedicated to providing end-users with intuitive solutions that enhance hybrid communication, regardless of environment,” said Jonas Gyalokay, Airtame Co-Founder. “The New York showroom is an excellent example of how Airtame technology caters to flexible spaces and supports individual needs and activities.”
For more than 20 years, Orangebox has provided unique and accessible furniture and space design to educational facilities and businesses, encouraging focused work and team collaboration. As universities and workplaces transitioned from traditional work environments to more networked spaces in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, Orangebox recognized the need for dedicated settings to support hybrid communication and created Smartlearning Spaces to offer curated spaces designed to facilitate individual study and group learning of different sizes.
Together, Smartlearning Spaces and Airtame deliver state-of-the-art furniture and technology design for ultimate end-to-end flexibility and simple, aesthetically pleasing solutions for any space.
Airtame Core offers seamless digital signage capabilities and intuitive wireless screen sharing – now made even easier through Airtame’s recently launched Share from Browser feature that makes Bring Your Own Meeting (BYOM) environments and presentations simpler and more secure than ever before.
The Airtame Hybrid takes collaboration a step further for those using Orangebox Smartlearning Spaces with flexible hybrid conferencing to ensure users can easily connect with hybrid participants. Supporting Teams and Zoom calls (and soon, Google Meet and Webex), Airtame Hybrid brings crucial flexibility to Smartlearning Spaces that are required to support and adapt to the tools used by multiple users daily. The award-winning Share to Call feature is also available through the Hub, solving one of the biggest pain points experienced in hybrid meetings by allowing any person in the meeting room to instantly share their screen into a Zoom or Teams call without the hassle of joining the call from their personal device.
Paired with Airtame technology, Smartlearning Spaces enhance education environments and foster seamless collaboration for in-person and hybrid users. The showroom highlights a variety of spaces including student commons for in-person social connection, learning commons where students can find places to work undistracted or collaborate virtually, and a faculty hub designed as a flexible space for educators to reserve based on their task, mood and personal preference.
“The showroom represents an ecosystem of solutions that facilitate flexibility, focus, and flow, making engagement and hybrid communication effortless,” said Sophie Cramer, Senior Marketing Manager of Orangebox. “We’re thrilled to elevate the capabilities of our Smartlearning Spaces with solutions from Airtame, a like-minded partner who prioritizes creating hybrid conferencing environments that allow for the required flexibility of shared workspaces.”
The Orangebox showroom will be open until April 30th, 2024. Reach out to your local Airtame representative to arrange a visit.
