How to Hold a Collaborative and Productive Meeting with Dell Chromebox

The modern workplace is not constrained by physical walls. Customers and employees can span across the globe. More than ever, when collaborating with colleagues or talking to customers, you’re likely not in the same time zone, let alone the same room. Finding new ways to collaborate effectively with people is a business necessity. Nothing beats face-to-face communication, but until now, that meant getting on a plane, making sure everyone was physically in the same office, or using complex videoconferencing solutions that were either difficult to use or out of reach for smaller businesses.

Likewise, a voice-only conference call can leave a lot to be desired. It’s sometimes hard to stay engaged when it’s just a voice on the other end of the line, and as the leader of such a call, it’s sometimes hard to tell that the participants are engaged. We’ve all seen parodies of today’s conference calls on YouTube and other places where people are doing household chores or playing Solitaire in the background. 

Dell Chromebox for meetings, available today on, has been developed with the modern workplace in mind, helping organizations hold high quality, virtual ‘face-to-face’ meetings across multiple devices, and encourage real time collaboration among employees. Ideal for companies that have flexible or remote working arrangements, this allows for employee engagement no matter where they are sitting. It’s easy to use and allows organizations to connect up to 15 users across almost any device – including PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones – which means that people can connect whether at home, in the office, or from a hotel room. Participants can also share their screen for real-time collaboration on materials.

The new Dell 55 monitor, also available today, is the perfect complement to the Dell Chromebox for meetings solution. Conference rooms can come to life with Full HD resolution and exceptional clarity for video calls and presentations.

By connecting “face-to-face” from any location, today’s meetings can now be more productive.
