We bring collaboration into any room

An interview with George Stromeyer

ClickShare has been the star of Barco’s Enterprise division for years now. In 2019, the team worked hard again to make sure it keeps shining. “Yet ClickShare was not the only success story in 2019,” says George Stromeyer, general manager of the Enterprise division.

By improving collaboration, we can help organizations address one of their biggest challenges – productivity.

“In the past years, we gained valuable insights in the user experience throughout the customer journey,” says George. “We now perfectly understand what causes friction in enterprise environments and what drives engagement. These insights help us develop user-friendly solutions that really enhance collaboration in every workplace. That ability holds a huge market potential: by improving collaboration, we can help organizations address one of their biggest challenges – productivity.”

ClickShare remains one of our stars. In 2019, it continued its double-digit growth trajectory and is now available in more than 720K meeting rooms around the world.

Much more than hardware

When zooming in on what that means for the business, George refers to ClickShare: “Based on our understanding of the user experience, we keep upgrading the presentation system with new features in order to sustain its success. Moreover, we have just launched ClickShare Conference, which brings wireless conferencing to the workplace.” ClickShare proves that the Enterprise division is not trapped in the hardware world. The team significantly sharpened its software capabilities in 2019, offered more value-added services and is integrating connectivity in all its solutions.

Focus on growth

2019 was also a pivotal year for Control Rooms, as the business returned to above breakeven, thanks to its triple-play display strategy, the success of solutions like UniSee® and a sharp focus on performance. “Growing our entire business will be a focus for 2020: we need to leverage what we have and scale it to ensure lean, profitable growth,” George concludes.

In South Korea, the Jeollanamdo Provincial government installed a 6x2 UniSee LCD video wall in their Disaster Status Control Center. “The UniSee had the smallest seam and highest brightness, so it is easy to read and work with,” says user Changwan Sun.
