Because of it's compact space saving design, one RotoCube holds the same amount of information as a 4' x 6' whiteboard but has just a 19 inch footprint. You can put them in high traffic areas where they are seen and used. RotoCubes can be viewed from all four sides without crowding or blocking the view and rotate silently in either direction with the touch of a finger

Production managers nationwide are using patented freestanding RotoCube rotating whiteboard bulletin towers..."We need production metrics and instructions out on the shop floor where our associates use them..." says a Michigan Pharmaceutical company "We don't have enough wall space for a traditional whiteboard. Because RotoCubes are freestanding, we can put them right at the point of use in a work cell." An Arizona medical equipment manufacturer adds "The four sides make it easy to organize information. We put a production metric on each side for safety, quality, inventory and productivity. They enable communication between shifts and encourage collaboration among employees."
