Requirement by client:

Caterpillar has adopted videoconferencing into the corporate culture to provide face-to-face meetings on a more regular basis without requiring the need to travel. They were looking for a full-service audio-visual partner with the experience and expertise to design and install a large-scale integrated AV solution and hired SISPL to convert their vision into reality.

Challenges faced:

For their multipurpose room the priority was to keep the room flexible, yet incorporate in the essentials to allow for audio and multimedia presentations. Ease of use was also important, as many different individuals within the organization would be using the audio-visual system. Given the high-profile nature of this project, we undertook an extensive technology study to ensure that we provided the best of AV Systems that was high tech and at the same time user-friendly.

Solutions offered:

We have equipped more than 25 rooms of Caterpillar with a range of audio visual systems and facilities, including an integrated conference suite, reception and cafeteria.

To address presentation projection needs, we designed the 12 seater Conference Room using a ceiling mounted projector with a long throw lens and an electric screen which allowed meeting participants to display data from a laptop by plugging into the data input connector located at the head of the conference table. We equipped multiple small Meeting Rooms and Manager Cabins with 48″ Professional LED Display with VGA+A & HDMI Inputs to hold productive meetings and effectively communicate either in person or via audio or video conferencing.

We designed Multi-use Digital Cafeteria for Caterpillar which allowed the use of the cafeteria for informal meetings and parties as and when required. We suggested use of Large LED monitors for every user to get a clear view of the content which made the solution extremely simple and could be conducted even in broad daylight.

A 48″ Professional LED Display was also installed at Caterpillar’s Reception area to present detailed information with high visual impact while reinforcing how investors, customers and employees perceive the company. Use of the plasma screen provided eye-catching dynamic information in a high traffic area.

Conclusion:

Each office space at Caterpillar has now being equipped with a high-end videoconferencing system to provide a connected and innovative workspace for employees to connect with each other and clients. The project was completed on time, within budget and exceeded client’s expectation. This coherent, intelligently designed installation has changed the way Caterpillar communicates and works.
