United Capital is a Wealth Management Services company based in Newport Beach, CA with 57 offices throughout the United States.
The firm's business is founded on providing high touch service to their clients, in many cases occurring as face to face meetings at branch offices. Derek McCauley, Manager of Platform and Technology at United Capital, set out to create the best possible client experience in-office utilizing the latest in design, technology, and automation. "The goal was simple: we wanted to provide a consistent, easily repeatable experience that could be facilitated by the firm's financial advisers in the multitude of conference rooms through our space."
By implementing a clever combination of Google Chromecast, an AV automation system, and iPad as the controller, an employee could completely automate the technology in a conference room space. Such automation includes screen-casting computers with the touch of one button on the iPad screen.
With the goal of delivering a high-touch experience for the client that combined design and technology, there was a gap in the plan around iPad. "We needed to find an elegant way to keep iPads charged and accessible while ensuring that the iPads were never misplaced and always ready to use." explains McCauley.
iPads are fast becoming a staple in corporate offices: they can be used as a digital signage piece, automation control interface, or even as an information center displaying real-time metrics. But no matter the use case, iPad is only as valuable as its ability to remain charged, and to remain present at the location it is needed.
Keep iPad Charged and Ready for Use
Elegantly Mount iPad In-Wall
Ensure iPad Stays in Conference Rooms
iPort's Control Mount became the clear answer: an in-wall mount for iPad that secured iPad to the wall, while providing charge to the iPad. Control Mount's neutral, contemporary esthetic allowed it to blend into virtually any environment, and the bezel was even paintable to match the wall. The iPad assembly was even tethered to the wall-box with security screws, enabling its theft deterrent feature.
"The iPort Control Mount is the perfect solution because it provides an elegant and secure mouth for iPad. The product is consistent with our contemporary interior design and keeps the device always charged with the control app ready for use on-screen," explains Derek. "Now, iPads are always ready, always there, and the experience just works. It's easy."
The job of powering many Control Mounts from one power source was enabled by iPort's VoltPort Electronics technology, on-board ever Control Mount. Integrators utilized a commercial 13.8V 200W power supply to power nearly a dozen iPort Control Mount and LaunchPort devices. Each iPort device knows how much power it needs to draw, making it very easy to consolidate power in a technology rack, saving space and clutter.
In addition to the use of Control Mount with automation control apps, many corporate users have leveraged Apps like Ender Labs' EventBoard. Event Board is an app for displaying meeting room schedules and in-use information from either Microsoft Exchange or Google Calendar. Customers combine Event Board, with iPad and Control Mount as an elegant and effective signage solution outside every conference room.
