Business center and event location, Maison de l’Alsace was founded in 1968, as an embassy and tourist office for the French region Alsace in Paris. After 40 years, the Maison de l’Alsace was repurposed as business center and event venue.
The 6-stories-high, classic building, located at the prestigious Champs-Élysées at the heart of the Parisian business district, holds a restaurant, meeting center and a unique rooftop area. It rents out spaces to high-end customers, companies, organizations and institutions for meeting, events, press conferences, showrooms and even television series.
With the challenges of more hybrid ways of collaboration entering the events market, the Maison de l’Alsace was looking to equip their meeting spaces for high-end video conferencing to better service their customers. Especially since video meetings became a permanent means to collaborate and communicate, even long after the Covid crisis. All outdated and complex videoconferencing systems needed to be replaced with a new collaboration solution that had to be secure, easy-to-use and welcoming all clients, their devices and different videoconferencing platforms.
‘It was of the utmost importance for us to install a secure collaboration solution, as for our clients secure, simple ways of video meeting are fundamental,’ elaborates Charlotte Formhals, director of Maison de l’Alsace.
Maison de l’Alsace was already acquainted with the ClickShare solutions for wireless presentation and wanted to install the latest innovations for seamless wireless conferencing as well. That’s why they decided to equip half of their meeting spaces with the popular ClickShare Conference CX-30.
‘ClickShare Conference is essential for us. We started installing it in one of the rooms, it was a huge success.’ says Marie Guerra, responsible for communication and public relations at Maison de l’Alsace.
For the rooftop venue, they decided to go for the latest, advanced collaboration features of the ClickShare Conference CX-50 2nd generation. This enabled them to offer high-end events using dual screen and interactivity features for presenters.
In short, ClickShare helps Maison de l’Alsace to give their guests a warm welcome and premium meeting experience.
The call for an easy-to-use solution is even more pressing in an event and hospitality context, as staff does not have the opportunity to give guests an extensive explanation on how to use the meeting room set-up. With ClickShare’s intuitive user interface, any guest can set up a video meeting within seconds. And there’s no need for cables, adapters, or a specific meeting platform. ClickShare Conference is a highly interoperable solution as it is compatible with any device, any video conferencing platform like Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Webex and more, so the guest experience is seamless and hassle-free.
‘We have a clientele that is really looking for technology that is easy to use. Our customers have mac and pc so we needed a system that adapts to everyone and is very simple because people don't have time to waste.’ says Marie Guerra, responsible for communication and public relations at Maison de l’Alsace.
ClickShare brings premium video meeting in any setup, from regular meeting room to boardroom or even open even space. With the high-end model, CX-50 2nd generation specific features were added to boost the meeting experience in high-impact spaces even more.
It offers dual screen for an immersive, inclusive experience where you see people and content side by side and interactivity features like annotation, blackboarding and touchback for enhanced collaboration. Also, the model enables effortless switching between UC mode and BYOM mode and gives users the ultimate flexibility.
