Whiteboard – Digital Brainstorming

StarBoard for Digital Brainstorming

How many times have you and your team spent some quality time mapping out the next great marketing initiative, sales strategy or the like on a standard whiteboard and run of out of space? The creative process needs to stop while someone in the team copies down all the notes, only then can you continue, after having rubbed off all the initial great ideas.

The StarBoard software gives you a never-ending canvas on which to continue your session either by simply continuing to scroll down or across or just going to a new page.

Effective Tool for Education

The StarBoard software features numerous tools and functions that are ideal for education, whether it be to supplement a pre-prepared lesson plan, create and carry out assessments or create lesson material from scratch based on specific areas of the curriculum, the StarBoard software has you covered.

Create, Save, Print & Share

Spending time coming up with great ideas to improve your business should be all you are concerned with. StarBoard software takes all the hassle out of recording and distributing your session. Saving your great ideas, printing them out for physical records and action points and finally sharing with colleagues and associates can all be done before you even leave the meeting room.

Similarly, annotations made on presentation slide decks, can be saved and exported back into Microsoft® PowerPoint.

Meetings, more effective than ever

Just one of the features which can make your next business presentation more effective than ever is the ability to record the presentation.

The 'screen record' function records everything that is happening on the screen and also records the audio (microphone required) meaning that a presentation can be recorded visually including all annotations and the discussion heard. This is great for referring back to a previous presentation but also for sharing the results with people who may have not been able to attend.

Collaborate with colleagues like never before

The data conferencing feature of the StarBoard software means you can collaborate on documents, brainstorm and even review floor plans in real time, even when individuals are separated by thousands of kilometers.

Using StarBoard software, a shared whiteboard session can be hosted and joined by dozens of other participants, who can then follow on with the editing of documents or almost any imported content, in real time. Editing rights can also be shared amongst the group allowing different sites to add input into the same workspace.
