Company begins international expansion as customers adopt the Meeting Owl to strengthen communications between employees based around the world
BOSTON, Jan. 12, 2018 /CNW/ -- Owl Labs, maker of the 360° intelligent video conferencing camera, today announced that it has expanded sales into Canada, the first step in its international rollout. Owl Labs' popular Meeting Owl is already being used by over 500 companies like Engineers Without Borders Canada to enhance communication with colleagues and employees based around the world.
"Demand for the Meeting Owl has accelerated our international plans, as teams that collaborate remotely, particularly on the global scale, want their communications experiences to be more natural than geography allows," said CEO Max Makeev of Owl Labs. "The Meeting Owl makes it possible for everyone to feel like they are valued, active participants in each conversation, whether they are across the table or across the continent."
The Meeting Owl is a 360° video conferencing camera that sits in the center of the conference room table and automatically focuses on different people in the room as they speak. The result is a much more engaging experience for remote participants. They can see the whole room and close-up views of body language and facial expressions in a fully immersive experience.
Since launching in June, over 500 companies have purchased Meeting Owls for their conference rooms.
In addition to its ability to make meetings come alive for all participants, the Meeting Owl is accessible to organizations of all shapes and sizes, which enables them to accomplish worthy goals and projects even faster, such as in the case of EWB Canada. Among Owl Labs' early Canadian-based customers is this nonprofit with a mission to tackle poverty and inequality by investing in social enterprises in sub-Saharan Africa, advocating for policy change and growing young leaders. One of its teams currently uses the Meeting Owl to connect with Toronto headquarters from sub-Saharan Africa.
"We have staff in Toronto and spread across many countries, and we desperately needed a conferencing system that could connect us all in an efficient and user-friendly way that was not cost-prohibitive," said Paul Cescon, Director of Partnerships at EWB Canada. "Through the Meeting Owl, we can now provide an engaging experience that brings our remote staff into the work that's happening at HQ."
The Meeting Owl is $1089 CAD. Businesses in Canada can order the Meeting Owl now at www.owllabs.com/pricing/ca.
