London, 12 July 2017 - Oblong Industries, Inc., the pioneer of interactive spatial computing environments for the new era of collaborative work, has announced a partnership with MBA IT, an established IT solutions and services provider to bring the Mezzanine platform for immersive visual collaboration to enterprise customers in the UK and Europe. The partnership will combine Oblong’s ground-breaking technology for immersive environments and MBA IT’s expertise as a technical services provider to deliver state-of-the-art solutions to clients.

Oblong is transforming the future of enterprise collaboration, as smart businesses shift away from yesterday’s one-dimensional practices. Information is not limited to one screen and can now be manipulated in a natural three-dimensional environment and across connected locations.

MBA-IT brings a wealth of experience delivering IT solutions for their customers, and Mezzanine will spark new client conversations and opportunities in the future."

MBA IT is working with several large organizations to introduce this technology and develop solutions to boost sales and increase ROI. This allows these companies to captivatingly create a pitch showcasing the cutting-edge technology they offer.

“We are excited to be one of the first Oblong partners in the UK,” says MBA IT’s Enterprise Internal Account Manager, Jonathan Wiltshire. “This partnership will aid us in our goal to connect our customers to innovative technology which helps them to meet and exceed their business goals.”
