Every day, organizations around the world are adopting new ways of working and learning together. Successful collaboration and learning requires clear communication of ideas, goals and strategies, whether to others in the same room or across distances. Tools that enable this kind of communication ultimately expand the potential of what students, business people and others can achieve.
SMART Technologies is both the industry pioneer and market-segment leader in easy-to-use interactive whiteboards and other group collaboration tools. Using SMART products, groups can access and share the information they need to meet, teach, train and present regardless of distance.
SMART products include the family of award-winning SMART Board interactive whiteboards, interactive pen displays, interactive digital signage, wireless slates and software. SMART has been issued and maintains a broad portfolio of patents with numerous other U.S., Canadian and foreign patents pending.
At SMART, our commitment to quality, service and innovation has resulted in numerous company and product awards including Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies (Platinum Club), Canada's 2000 Exporter of the Year and two-time recipient of the Canada Export Award, Worldidac Award, Worldidac Quality Charter, Good Design Award of Japan, Best Overall Design Product ( China ) and Comenius Medal.
Founded in 1987, SMART is a private company headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, with offices in Germany, Japan, China, New York City, Chicago IL and Washington DC. Most of SMART's products are assembled in Canada.
In 1992, SMART formed a strategic alliance with U.S. computer giant Intel® Corporation.

SMART products are sold through dealers across North America and through distributors in more than 100 countries.
As demand grows for tools that expand the potential for engaged learning and group collaboration, SMART will continue to design products that bring people and ideas together.
