This new channel brings We-Inspire solutions to the top audio visual integration and interior design specialists devoted to creating collaborative work environments to expedite ideation, creativity and productivity across organizations.
We-Inspire revolutionizes interactive collaboration processes and features a large surface work space of up to 24 feet in length.

Visual Magnetics, a specialist in creating dynamic interiors within offices, education, museums and with the nation’s top retailers, is now authorized to resell We-Inspire’s collaboration solutions in North America. Visual Magnetics also supplies a patented state of the art surface material developed for large collaboration work spaces, which incorporates technology developed by Anoto. This durable surface ensures simple and secure We-Inspire installations and can be easily changed throughout the life of the collaboration solution.
We-Inspire is the only collaboration solution where users can participate simple by writing on regular paper and have their ideas streamed in real time to the interactive session from their favourite chair. Workgroups are able to collaborate and interact by drawing, writing, making notes and importing documents, pictures or movies and sketches. Every idea is automatically saved for efficient distribution throughout any organization.
The solution is used by companies including one of the world’s largest and most creative toy manufacturer, LEGO Systems A/S, for designing new toys.

“The expansion of our business plan to include the top national audio video system integrators and interior design specialists brings this creative solution to corporations and industries challenged by effective communication on a daily basis.” says Einy Paulsen, Country Manager, We-Inspire, Inc. “We-Inspire automatically saves and nurtures intellectual property that is owned by companies but so often is lost to poorly documented collaboration sessions. Gone are the days that a picture of a white board will suffice and the last one to draw the straw documents and distribute critical data from day long strategy sessions. We-Inspire provides a creative platform to create great ideas and ensures every great idea is saved and shared.”
“We are pleased at the reception of the We-Inspire solution in the US market and are excited to see its continue growth via unique partners like Visual Magnetics ” says Stein Revelsby, CEO of Anoto Group AB. “Together, we provide a truly unique collaboration tool that can be used across any corporate environment.

Every business can profit by being able to capture and share ideas more effectively.”
