LAKE ZURICH, Ill., Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Whiteboards are a standard fixture in office conference rooms of all sizes. To meet the demands of users with heavy communication and collaboration needs, Quartet® has created a new lineup of Prestige® 2 Whiteboards, with extended warranties and completely redesigned frames. These boards are also compatible with new Prestige® 2 ConnectsAccessories, designed to keep your whiteboard tools within reach and directly onto the board frame.

Product Manager for Quartet, Lauren Rosenberg, had this to say about the Prestige redesign: "The Prestige 2 series has been overhauled based on thorough consumer research.  Consumers expressed the desire for a board that was high quality but looked fresh, and they wanted something to help them keep track of supplies. Thus, the Prestige 2 board series has an updated silhouette, modern details, extended warranties and a wide range of accessories that attach directly to the board. The new Connects accessories have all been designed to make interaction as effortless and stress-free as possible."

Connects accessories are compatible with Quartet Prestige 2 boards and are aptly named as they connect into specialized notches along the back of the board frame. The Connects Marker Caddy, for example, keeps four EnduraGlide® dry-erase markers and a Quartet board eraser secure and easily accessible right alongside the whiteboard. The full Connects lineup includes other innovative accessory solutions that attach to the board for ultimate user convenience. The Prestige 2 whiteboard and Connects accessory series are just the beginning of many more exciting things to come from Quartet.
