Wesco Anixter Launches Global Availability of Conference Room as a Service at ISE Barcelona

To support a modern, hybrid workforce, the subscription-based AV solution is now available throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa

PITTSBURGH & BARCELONA, January 29, 2024 – Wesco International (NYSE: WCC), a leading provider of business-to-business distribution, logistics services, and supply chain solutions, today announced the company’s Conference Room as a Service offering is now available globally.

Designed with flexibility in mind, Conference Room as a Service supports the comprehensive AV needs of conference and meeting rooms for seamless collaboration among employees – at home, in the office, or at any other remote location through a flexible, subscription-based program. Wesco Anixter will showcase the solution on their stand 2U330 at Integrated Systems Europe, Jan. 30-Feb. 2 in Barcelona.

A recent global survey from McKinsey shows that 56% of  employees operate in a hybrid work model. With remote flexibility options being more common than ever, organizations need reliable technology to support a modern workforce from anywhere in the world.

“Not only are expectations and demands for remote and hybrid work flexibility changing, but the network infrastructure and technology powering that connection is also evolving at a rapid pace,” said Bill Geary, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Communications and Security Solutions at Wesco. “By partnering with Wesco Anixter, integrators can deliver the latest AV technologies with flexibility to scale their solution, providing a consistent user experience, to best support their customers across the globe.”

Unlike legacy AV systems, Conference Room as a Service is a subscription-based offering that keeps pace with rapid technological advances and can assist customers with managing their capital expenditures. Wesco Anixter helps streamline the implementation process by testing and configuring equipment before it is shipped. The Conference Room as a Service subscription also features remote monitoring and 24/7 live support, underscoring Wesco Anixter’s commitment to providing customers with a flexible, reliable and secure solution, custom fit for wherever they are in the world.

A financial technology and cybersecurity solutions provider needed a flexible, seamless collaboration tool that could support in-person and remote workers at scale. In short order, Wesco Anixter helped them deploy their new conference room service across meeting spaces in the company’s 11 offices, ensuring that employees had the tools they needed to work effectively from day one.
