SMART kapp™ Joins AVAD Lineup
Revolutionary Replacement for Dry Erase Board Allows Users to Share Content in Real-Time
Los Angeles, Calif. – July 9, 2015 – AVAD LLC, North America’s leading provider of solutions to the residential and commercial custom installation markets, is announcing the addition of the SMART kapp™ to its product lineup. SMART kapp, produced by SMART Technologies Inc., allows users to write, draw, diagram and brainstorm using an ink marker as they would with a dry-erase board. Multiple users can follow the process in real-time with the whiteboard showing on their digital devices. The work is saved with SMART’s advanced software app and then as a final product as PDFs or JPEGs for sharing.
SMART Technologies, a leading global provider of visual collaboration solutions, created the product with education providers, corporate employees and innovators in mind. The 42” and 84” digital dry erase boards, available from AVAD, allow users to write, draw and capture ideas using dry erase SMART ink markers while enabling them to save work images, documents and charts. SMART kapp technology allows users to convert notes and sync onto computers, tablets and mobile devices. SMART kapp technology is ideal for use in schools, meetings, workplaces, studios, conference halls and hotels.
“SMART kapp has economically transformed the ineffective method of saving dry erase board notes by raising the level of simplicity to operate a digital note board,” said Hugh Hughes, director of vendor management and purchasing at AVAD. “We are thrilled to launch this affordable and innovative product that will modernize the way people share data. SMART kapp brings AVAD dealers a new business opportunity to bring to their customers, who will appreciate the ease of using this product and the user experience that integrates with their needs.”
SMART kapp apps capture, save and share content. The free apps (iOS and Android) enable users to pair their tablets or smartphones to a SMART kapp board with a scan of its unique QR code or a tap of its NFC tag. The app activates live web-sharing with up to five users. The SMART kapp PLUS apps, a $19.99 (USD) annual subscription, make sharing easy by hosting up to 250 participants at one time on any browser, in real-time, whether they are near the SMART kapp or working remotely. SMART kapp snapshots can be saved as PDFs or JPEGs and content can be shared through Evernote, Dropbox, Google Drive or other storage accounts. The economical SMART kapp hardware, available in both portrait and landscape, is a beautiful piece of design that will work seamlessly at any location where people capture their ideas.
