ABOUT CIBC INSURANCE
CIBC Insurance (CIBC) is an operating division of one of Canada’s oldest banks, The Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC), which first opened its doors in the year of Canadian Confederation, 1867. CIBC Insurance offers financial support and insurance coverage to people when they need it most. With a wide range of product options and solutions, CIBC can help home, auto and business owners with all their insurance needs.
CIBC Insurance was looking for an AV solutions partner to help connect their national offices to local branches to improve the national level of communication and ensure information was relayed to all branches in an immediate, concurrent manner. The solution needed to provide interactive conferencing systems in multiple locations across the country that could all then be controlled through one centralized location. CIBC wanted an AV expert with strong, recent and ongoing experience serving the financial services sector to provide an end-to-end solution including the installation of the entire integrated system within the national office and at all branches.
THE ADVANCED SOLUTION
Advanced created a complete AV and videoconferencing system based on SMART technologies to enhance and promote collaboration among internal and external clients and employees. SMARTBoard interactive whiteboards were installed in each meeting room, creating visually interactive working environments. SMART Meeting Pro Software and SMART Bridget conferencing systems were also deployed in the solution.
Today, CIBC Insurance staff can effectively host presentations and meetings in which all attendees, regardless of their physical location, can participate and contribute. Users can share screenshots and streaming video, while at the same time engaging in discussion, all in real time.
With a reinforced audio solution, the interactivity of presentations and meetings is further enhanced, ensuring all participants, whether in-room or remote, can hear clearly and participate more fully.
To ensure the technology was used to its fullest advantage, Advanced also provided customized, onsite support and training programs to CIBC making this collaborative communications project a resounding success.
