Neat, a Norwegian company established in video communications has announced its Neat as a Service (NaaS) subscription offering. NaaS makes it quick and easy for Zoom customers outside the US to deploy Neat hardware devices in their meeting spaces.
Neat and Zoom have also disclosed that Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM) has made an additional financial investment in Neat.
“Zoom and Neat together are making it easy for customers to expand their video conferencing capabilities. Our additional investment in Neat reflects our conviction that Neat’s devices are an outstanding complement to Zoom’s communications platform,” said Eric S. Yuan, Zoom CEO.
“We believe Neat offers innovative technology that ensures Zoom customers enjoy an incredible meeting room experience.”
Aligned with Zoom’s recently introduced Hardware as a Service (HaaS), NaaS is provided directly by Neat and expands the reach of Zoom HaaS beyond the US, enabling Zoom customers globally to lease Neat devices.
As the new normal forces people around the world to adapt their ways of working, both in offices and remotely, video conferencing is proving to be a key tool in supporting continued productivity and driving stronger collaboration.
NaaS makes it seamless for customers with a Zoom Rooms license to equip their meeting spaces with any of Neat’s world-class devices: Neat Bar and Neat Pad, and Neat Board when it begins shipping at the end of October. With easy ordering and set up, customers can quickly enjoy all the benefits of deploying Zoom Rooms the Neat way, including receiving all the latest software releases and support from Zoom.
“Zoom customers globally are transitioning back to a mix of office and remote work, and need a scalable, cost-effective way to quickly expand their Zoom deployments in their meeting spaces,” said Jeff Smith, Head of Zoom Rooms, Zoom.
“Neat’s innovative devices deliver a great user experience and are easy to install and manage. NaaS builds on that by giving customers the purchasing flexibility and choice they need.”
“Neat was designed for Zoom, with the sole purpose of delivering a delightful meeting room experience to Zoom customers. We have achieved that by providing Zoom customers around the globe with our beautifully designed, simple to set up, feature-rich devices,” said Simen Teigre, Neat CEO.
“NaaS is the next step in our mission, offering a flexible subscription service that allows businesses to expand their Zoom solution with Zoom Rooms in a hassle-free way.”
