She said the company in 2016 unveiled its new products dubbed 'Smart surfaces' aimed at transforming schools, offices, and tables into smarter surfaces such as white, black, clear, or magnetic for purposes of writing and PowerPoint presentation.
Ms Annor said the product also included a range of projectors that would help organisations to stay in tune with the changing world and urged institutions and individuals to adapt to changing times and invest in the products for their ward's education.
