The Mackinac Center for Public Policy is a nonprofit research and educational institute that advances the principles of free markets and limited government. Through our research and education programs, we challenge government overreach and advocate for free-market approaches to public policy that free people to realize their potential and their dreams.
"The Pana has made meetings between people in the office and people in remote locations much better: easier to set up, higher quality, and more likely to be used."
"The Pana has made meetings with donors, board members, and other staff a lot nicer. People are happier when the video and audio is done well."
Mackinac Center was previously using either the built-in laptop camera or an external conference cam. The conference camera worked well, but didn’t have the 360-degree capabilities of the PANA, the 360-degree view and automatic switching has made remote meetings much more like in person meetings.
There are a number of Mackinac staff that work from home part of the week and a number that are full-time remote. The use of Coolpo AI Huddle PANA allows the remote staff to participate in meetings more like they were there in the office. The outcome is satisfying: The PANA enables them to have more efficient video meetings with remote staff and donors.
The PANA's plug and play feature and the all-in-one design save technician a lot of time on set up camera, plug in speakers and before each meeting, now they only need to plug in one PANA.
