IT distribution group Exertis has added SMART Technologies, the pioneering maker of interactive displays and software designed specifically for learning and collaboration, to its Pro AV UK portfolio.
SMART’s products target education, business and government sectors, providing simple, intuitive and connected solutions. SMART’s technology allows for the ultimate in productivity, such as interactive board displays, delivering an unparalleled collaborative experience; the ability to turn meeting rooms into connected workspaces for business; and software for training and decision making, connecting people with vital information worldwide.
The SMART portfolio is helping educators and businesses succeed all over the world, empowering classrooms and corporate teams to learn and collaborate in innovative ways, and inspiring breakthroughs – from improved learning outcomes to moving businesses forward.
Ian Neale, Exertis General Manager Pro AV & UC, said: “Exertis’s Pro AV business is an unrivalled distributor of AV/IT solutions within the UK, and the addition of SMART to our offering enhances our already extensive range of interactive solutions. The ‘new normal’, in which we all find ourselves, now dictates new ways of learning, collaborating and achieving. Interactive solutions play a big part in this approach, and as a market leader, SMART is a natural fit to the Exertis portfolio; enabling new customers, solutions and business outcomes. Overall, this partnership is a SMART move for both parties, and we look forward to working together.”
SMART is the inventor of the SMART Board interactive display and the developer of SMART Notebook, the world’s most popular collaborative learning software which is part of the SMART Learning Suite. Exertis will have access to SMART’s full portfolio of products and solutions.
