London – 14 December 2021 – Jabra and UMA have partnered to deliver innovative video conferencing and meeting room solutions, enabling Jabra devices to be managed seamlessly from one place on the UMA dashboard with real-time analytics. With Jabra PanaCast intelligent video conferencing cameras, users can manage meeting room occupancy levels and control room occupancy levels from a desktop, smartphone or meeting room display panel to optimise the use of office space.
The Jabra PanaCast and PanaCast 50’s unique 180-degree field-of-view covers the whole room and generates anonymous room occupancy data. This feeds real-time information into the UMA dashboard, providing insights and analytics. UMA automatically makes a meeting room available to book in the event of a no-show. Rooms can also be auto-booked by simply walking in.
With the shift towards hybrid-working, companies are reviewing their technology investments and office space-utilisation. UMA enables users to manage meeting-room and desk utilisation and device management of audio-visual devices, all from a single pane of glass. Organisations are now able to optimise their facilities and technology infrastructure to create an efficient and safe workplace, compliant with Covid Winter-Plan guidelines.
Nigel Dunn, Managing Director, EMEA North at Jabra says, “We are thrilled to be teaming up with UMA to deliver a new standard in meeting room solutions for hybrid working. Jabra PanaCast’s data-driven insights and analytics gives a real-time view of how the workplace is being used, enabling companies to improve efficiency and maximise their real estate. It’s now time to start thinking about future-proofing offices and taking conferencing and the meeting booking experience to the next level.”
Nathan Rogers, Head of Channel, UMA says, “I’m looking forward to continuing to build a strong partnership with Jabra. The UMA and Jabra integration will deliver meaningful insights to businesses ensuring they understand how their real estate is being used. UMA delivers a simplified user experience to enable the booking of meeting spaces, and when partnered with the Jabra PanaCast the business has enhanced analytical data at their fingertips. Jabra’s audio experience and smart UC technology working in coalition with our Workplace Software will deliver a game changing advantage to users.”
Working in partnership with our mutual UK and European distributors means the reseller and Integrator customers will get a cohesive approach.
The Jabra PanaCast is supported on UMA’s platform today, with PanaCast 50 to follow in early 2022.
