COLLABORATIVE WORK ENVIRONMENTS FROM ADVANCED PROMOTE  BETTER INTERACTION, IDEA AND INFORMATION SHARING AMONG HEALTH CANADA STAFF

ABOUT HEALTH CANADA

The Health Products and Food Branch (HPFB) of Health Canada manages the risks and benefits to Canadians associated with the nation`s health products and food. HPFB works to minimize risks to health, while simultaneously maximizing the safety provided through the regulatory system. This branch of Health Canada also disseminates information to help Canadians make more informed decisions about the relationship between food and health.

THE OPPORTUNITY

HPFB was looking for unique and dynamic AV technology options to help foster stronger collaboration and idea-sharing among participants during meetings and training sessions.

THE ADVANCED SOLUTION

After multiple product demonstrations, Advanced was chosen as the preferred vendor to design and install the collaborative work environments for HPFB. Advanced guaranteed a solution that would be conducive to idea and information sharing through the use of robust technologies – both hardware and software –  that had the added benefit of being easy to use.

Multiple SMART interactive whiteboards were installed within conference and training rooms at HPFB offices to provide an interactive environment that would help staff visualize ideas and encourage information and idea sharing.

The SMART whiteboards were coupled with SMART Meeting Pro software.  The total visual solution gave HPFB an easy and effective way to collaborate, whether participants were on-site or connecting remote. To assist staff with using the SMART collaboration solution to its fullest potential, Advanced also provided onsite training on both the SMARTBoards and the SMART meeting Pro software.
