JOHANNESBURG – LENOVO has launched its new ThinkSmart Hub 500 device in South Africa.

Described as a Skype Room Systems device that manages collaboration within modern meeting rooms, it was launched in Johannesburg on Tuesday, with regional sync-ups with Cape Town and Durban.

The Lenovo Smart Hub 500 is priced from R30 000 (US$1 988) to R35 000, depending on the type of Logitech camera selected.

Executives said the device “tackles conference room complexities and helps companies embrace the digital transformation of modern workspaces.”

“Workplace transformation begins with collaboration,” said Julian Pienaar, Lenovo’s Pre-Sales and Product Technologist.

Pienaar said as workforces were changing, businesses needed to provide tools to enable efficiency and teamwork in the office and with colleagues around the world.

One obvious need for change is in how meetings are conducted, including the ongoing issue of the wrong technology to get meetings started quickly, the technologist said.

“This wasted time can cost businesses millions in lost productivity, so we’re thrilled that the ThinkSmart Hub 500 can help solve that issue,” Pienaar added.

It is available through all Lenovo’s distributors, online directly from Lenovo.
