Microsoft states,

“Microsoft Surface Hub reimagines the meeting experience so that you can unlock the power of the group. You can walk up and join a Skype for Business meeting with a single tap, and share content effortlessly, so that you spend your time connecting to people rather than technology. And since you can easily send meeting notes and content, you can communicate outcomes and action point”
 
Microsoft is not just releasing a powerful device; they claim to be releasing “a team-empowering solution” which will make meetings more productive, modernize workflows and allow people to engage with data much better. The Surface Hub has been designed from the ground up for ink and touch, harnessing the best collaboration and security features of Windows 10, Skype for Business, Office, OneNote and Universal Windows apps. The new Surface Hub can reduce the cost and improve effectiveness, compared to the legacy AV and presentation technology.
The company states,
 
“Make working together the most productive part of your day. Share your ideas with others on a canvas that is as big as your imagination. Bring teams together in a way that feels completely natural, with technology that doesn’t intrude, but helps ideas flow. Expand what can be accomplished in the moment and then don’t lose the momentum – capture your work so you can act on it later.”
 
Companies which conducts meeting in rooms and collaboration spaces with the Surface Hub installed experienced at 75 percent improvement in remote remote attendee setup and post-meeting productivity, saving about 15-20 minutes per hour-long meeting spent on setting up video or screen-sharing services and completing meeting notes. It was noticed that the organizations saw the decrease in printing cost up to $9,000 in the first year, using Surface Hub with pen and touch-enabled screen to make changes and take group notes instead of paper copies.
 
The company states,
 
“Microsoft Surface Hub integrates beautifully into the modern workplace, enabling productivity in any space where people come together to get things done, from large conference rooms to informal huddle spaces to offices. The fully integrated design, choice of two screen sizes, and flexible mounting configurations means there’s a solution for your business needs. Microsoft Surface Hub is also designed to be easy to deploy and manage remotely.”
