Simplicity tends to rule the day in the business world. Give workers a complex app or piece of hardware and they will refuse to use it. A copier will sit idle in a hallway if it has confusing functions no one understands, but put a big bright green “copy” button on the corner and people will flock to it in droves. Make your employee expense report tool on a corporate intranet site a simple “click here” affair where they attach a spreadsheet and staff will use it routinely.
That’s what’s so impressive about the Dell Chromebox for Meetings computer. Designed to replace expensive on-premise videoconferencing suites for a small conference room, the computer is about the size of two decks of cards.
