Stage Audio Works Namibia provides you with a fully integrated solution.
CR van Wyk and co. (CRVW) is a well- established accounting and audit practice based in the Namibian capital. In addition to serving their business clients, the company is also invested in providing opportunities for students, as both a registered Audit Practice and Training Office for students studying towards their Chartered Accountancy (Nam) qualifications and a Practice and Training Office for students studying for professional accountancy careers with the Namibian Institute for Professional Accountants (NIPA).
When CRVW made the decision to modernise their outdated boardroom solutions, who better to turn to than their long- standing clients, Stage Audio Works Namibia.
“It was a fascinating experience to reverse our roles, but we were delighted to have the opportunity to extend our services to one of our primary service providers”, says Stage Audio Works Namibia General Manager, Johadrie de Villiers.
CRVW asked Stage Audio Works Namibia to help modernise their boardroom in order to improve the quality of their video conferencing and team meetings. SAW Namibia specified and installed a fully integrated video conference solution based on Samsung screens and a Logitech Rally Plus bundle with integrated Microsoft Teams. An interactive whiteboard with a Logitech Scribe whiteboard camera along with a Logitech Tap scheduling panel completed the package.
The Logitech Rally Plus is an ideal solution for a mid-sized boardroom like CRVW’s, and can also cater for larger rooms with ease. Everything you need for high-quality video conferencing is there – an ultra-HD imaging system with lots of neat, built-in technology to ensure a really high- class video experience; two sleek loudspeakers for intelligible front of room audio; up to seven mic pods for impeccable audio capture – we used three at CRVW – plus all the requisite cabling and mounting options. In addition to massively elevating both audio and video quality, the whole system is exceptionally easy to use, and seamlessly integrates an interactive whiteboard at the customer’s request, explains De Villiers.
SAW Namibia skilfully incorporated loudspeakers and dual screens into a tailored unit, complete with built-in storage. This design choice ensures a seamlessly flush appearance that harmonises with the sophisticated and streamlined aesthetic of the recently revamped boardroom.
Ronel Ellis, personal assistant to the managing partner at CRVW, is thrilled with the results. “The quality of our meetings has improved measurably”, she states. “Having the technology to host flawless virtual meetings has improved our flexibility, and in turn our service rendering, both for meetings with an international client base as well as for the recruitment of international students for our training program".
Also, being able to host high quality virtual meetings at the click of a button further expedites turnaround time on service delivery since collective decision- making is sometimes required to proceed. The new systems have significantly enhanced the overall experience and increased efficiency. I especially love the integration of the interactive whiteboard, which is visible to all participants whether remote or in the room. Stage Audio Works have done a great job for us, she concludes.
