LifeWay Christian Resources Erases Traditional Whiteboards To Make Way For DTEN Interactive Whiteboards And Increased Productivity

The LifeWay Christian Resources organization were in the midst of a shift to a more dynamic work force and modern workplace. They went from the traditional whiteboards, flip charts, and easel pads to working with the modern technology offered in our DTEN Interactive Whiteboards. Being able to deliver move dynamic presentations and utilizing the easy to use features along with Zoom video conferencing, meetings are now more effective and productive.

“We are moving to a very dynamic work force that requires a tool that allows them to do whatever they want. We are loving DisplayTen because it allows our users to annotate over a presentation, to use it as a web browser, or use it as a digital whiteboard"

Modern technology paving the way to more productivity

The traditional whiteboards, flip charts and easels have been staples for organizations over the years. You'll find these in many meeting and conference rooms utilizing them for tasks such as presenting, brainstorming, and note-taking. These traditional methods are very limiting. They are confined to a specific room, people are forced to take pictures of their notes with a smartphone in order to share them with team members or you’ll often see, "DO NOT ERASE!” written by team members.

LifeWay Christian Resources sought after a collaboration solution with great usability and something that was easy for users to figure out while being affordable, having great speed, sensitivity, and durability.

Improved collaboration made easy

LifeWay Christian Resources were moving towards a dynamic work force seeking a more collaborative and productive environment. In order to do this they would need to make a change from the traditional brainstorming methods of using dry-erase whiteboards and flip chart boards to adopting the modern collaboration technology in the DTEN Interactive Whiteboards.

“We are moving to a very dynamic work force that requires a tool that allows them to do whatever they want. We are loving DisplayTen because it allows our users to annotate over a presentation, to use it as a web browser, or use it as a digital whiteboard."

With the organization's adoption of the DTEN Interactive Whiteboards, they have been able to achieve their goals in becoming more dynamic and building a more productive workplace. At LifeWay Christian Resources, collaborative meetings go beyond a conference room and are now able to be more effective with remote participants with the integration of Zoom.

"We are now easily annotating over presentations to make additional points to presentations that also allow our Zoom participants the ability to see what is going on. It adds that next level dynamic to make our meetings more fruitful."

The DTEN Interactive Whiteboards couldn't have been more perfect for solving the issues LifeWay Christian Resources were facing with traditional whiteboards. The simple DTEN platform has been ideal for their organization.

"By being an easy user friendly solution. Everyone tries to be a huge value add by doing tons of things that don't work well. I think DisplayTen has done a few things that we really needed extremely well and is building on those few things to continually improve the value of the product.”
