Advanced partner SMART Joins Microsoft Technology Solutions (MTC) Alliance Program

Microsoft Embraces SMART by Installing 16 SMART Boards in Their Technology Centers across the US.

Advanced Presentation Products is please to announce that their solutions partner SMART Technologies has joined the Microsoft Technology Center (MTC) Alliances program.  Following a 2010 installation of SMART hardware and software products at the MTC in Irvine, California, SMART was invited to join the Alliances program as their innovative products were recognized as offering interactive capabilities for improved collaboration and business decision making.

The SMART Board 8070i interactive display, SMART Board 885ix interactive whiteboard system and SMART Meeting Pro software have since been installed in an additional ten U.S. and five international centers. As a member of the Alliance program, SMART business solutions are now installed in all 11 U.S. MTC locations. With SMART products included in these MTCs, thousands of Microsoft business customers can learn about the features and benefits of SMART business solutions.

The MTC Alliances program is a global initiative that includes industry leaders in hardware, software and services. The MTCs provide business customers access to innovative technologies and industry expertise, and offer strategy briefings, architecture design sessions and proof-of-concept workshops to help business customers determine which solutions will best meet their needs.

Advanced is proud to be working with Microsoft in Canada in various facility upgrade projects across Canada.
