Collaborations Solutions releases Quicklaunch™

The feedback from our Quicklaunch™ customers has been tremendous. Angela Hlavka, Chief Strategy Officer, CSi.

Collaboration Solutions Inc. (CSi) announces the release of their Quicklaunch™ application to transform enterprise meeting room experiences and increase team productivity.

Quicklaunch™, co-developed with Iluminari Tech, is an easy to use, ‘one-click’/’one-touch’ application to join meetings, launch applications, access data, play media, showcase your organization’s content and business intelligence assets, and more. Quicklaunch™ is an intuitive add on for Microsoft Skype for Business and Lync workspaces, including meeting rooms, training rooms, video walls, workspaces, and is designed for use on premise and the cloud using Microsoft Office365.

“The feedback from our Quicklaunch™ customers has been tremendous as they share their feedback on the ease of use, increased productivity, and enhanced collaboration. We continue to work with our customers to extend Quicklaunch™ capabilities and enhance the user experience. ” Angela Hlavka, Chief Strategy Officer, CSi.

Quicklaunch™ is one of CSi’s first products built to facilitate and streamline the digital meeting room experience. It ensures an intuitive user experience that unites disparate backend collaboration technologies, making them invisible to the user.

“Quicklaunch™ is setting a new standard for collaboration experiences,” adds Hlavka. “We’ve leveraged our rapid application development processes and tools, utilizing our innovation labs to accelerate results for our Quicklaunch™ customers.”

This real-time meeting management add-on is a simple, yet transformative application that supports enterprises and public groups, such as university departments and healthcare workers, because the application makes it easy to tie together existing and future AV equipment with Microsoft Lync and Skype for Business platforms. A camera, PC, and display is all that’s needed to get started. Quicklaunch™ provides a consistent and secure interface for anyone entering a meeting room or work space with access to everything required to collaborate.

Quicklaunch™ was driven by customer driven demand. A leading auto manufacturer needed to simplify their meeting room experiences by seamlessly integrating their collaboration tools because the cost of maintaining and updating multiple spaces while paying for travel became unmanageable. Quicklaunch eliminated their technology frustrations by bridging their modern AV, regardless of vendor, with multiple collaboration technologies, all accessible directly from any desktop, smart phone, or meeting room display.

Quicklaunch™ does this by integrating with existing Microsoft Exchange, Skype for Business, and Lync environments. It facilitates starting a meeting, collaborating around applications and content, and closing meetings by completely resetting the meeting space and deleting any residual meeting files with strong security standards.

It features a persistent tool bar that enables one touch access to corporate data, applications, and business intelligence assets, all with white boarding capabilities to drive deeper understand during a meeting.

The application will allow large organizations to control the settings of all of their collaboration rooms from a single location, ensuring room standardization is always met. Control center features include the ability to manage multi-site deployments and an optional ‘lock-down’ mode to protect devices from unwanted changes.

CSi received a 2015 Unified Communications (UC) Excellence Award for Quicklaunch™ by TMC (Technology Marketing Corporation), a global integrated media company on November 4th. CSi was awarded for developing an exceptional unified communications product that is leading the way the way in the UC industry. These awards are regarded as some of the most prestigious and respected honors in the communications and technology sector worldwide and winners represent prominent players in the market who consistently demonstrate advancement of technologies.

Quicklaunch™ is available through a monthly subscription. For a full list of features or to schedule a demo with one of our collaboration experts, visit or watch the Quicklaunch Product Demo Video .
