How AV Technology is Being Used to Improve Sales
Are your sales teams using AV systems yet to seal the deal? Here’s how videoconferencing, presentation and collaboration helps shorten the sales cycle.

“What’s so great about the mouse, anyway?,” New York Times technology columnist David Pogue asked two years ago. “How is it natural to drag a plastic box across a horizontal surface to move things on a vertical screen two feet away? How kludgy! How indirect! How Cro-Magnon!,” he declared.

Unfortunately for Pogue, the touchscreen PCs he reviewed in that piece were clunky and lumbering. But a lot has changed since then, and today’s multi-touch technologies have gotten leaner and faster.

As with all advancements, as the technology advances, the prices lowers and the previous methods seem increasingly limited.
