British broadliner Exertis, a leading route-to-market and supply chain partner for global technology brands across consumer, business and enterprise, today announced its distribution of the Lenovo ThinkSmart View, a collaborative smart assistant powered by Microsoft Teams.
Greg Bennett, head of solutions at Exertis Pro AV, said: “we are delighted to be able to offer the Lenovo ThinkSmart View to our customers at a time when helping employees to work more efficiently from any location has added importance. Built on the Microsoft Teams platform, ThinkSmart View enables employees to remain more productive on their PCs while this smart office device handles video conferencing, content viewing and other administrative tasks. It’s a perfect addition to our range of collaboration solutions that have been so well received by our customers.”
ThinkSmart View can be used for voice and video calls, content viewing and more, freeing up the PC for note-taking or other work. With a built-in camera shutter, microphone mute button and 4 digit access PIN, it provides security and privacy whether in use or not.
Jane Ashworth, Lenovo SMB & channel director UK&I, said: “the Exertis Pro AV team has been very successful in pushing the collaboration opportunity for customers and in particular with our ThinkSmart Hub product. Boosting productivity and ease of working are benefits that all employees and organisations can recognise, and the ThinkSmart View allows you to get more out of your day and conduct better meetings.”

The end-to-end solution bundles are centred around Exertis’ eco system of collaboration partners and feature options for Microsoft Teams Rooms, Zoom Rooms or Google Hangouts Suites
