The future of collaboration is upon us

By Sidsel Loyche - 28 Jul, 2021
Collaboration

During lockdown many of us started referring to our workdays trapped at home as the ‘new normal.’ Now, as we start returning to an office-based desk we are adjusting the ‘now normal’ and ‘hybrid workplaces’; a way of working that is more adapted to the new needs of a company, department, or individual.

Every company will now need to think about how to adapt to the changes in working practises happening around themselves and for any other organisation or individual they need to communicate with. What should corporate policy dictate?  Do you allow people to work from home full time if they want to? Or 50%? Or not at all?  Either way, other organisations will make their own decisions so future collaboration will have to adapt regardless. These changes are still evolving, and therefore collaboration platforms and meeting spaces should be as flexible as possible, allowing an organisation to be agile by necessity.

World-wide collaboration needs to be more flexible and more accessible

As more people will join meetings offsite, conference room technology will have to be smarter, and there has never been a better time to make the necessary changes. Users now expect to be able to join a meeting from their own devices across a variety of platforms and they have little tolerance for technology failure, or cumbersome corporate policies dictating which platforms and services to use.

Full support no matter your preferred platform

We know that reliability and ease of use are key, so we provide a fully managed end-to-end service to help your organisation achieve a unified collaboration estate that supports your business objectives – so you can work smarter, not harder.

That means our dedicated solution engineering teams will design the best solution for you. We will then install on premises or remotely with full project ownership regardless of our customers global locations. We continue to operate and review in order to deliver any support you might need; a service desk, engineering on site, monitoring and management proactively with real time support for both IT department and end users depending on preferred support models. We deliver regular service reviews and reporting metrics to provide full visibility over any service issues and usage trends.

The time for change is now

We see more and more people joining meetings from offsite, but there is also a growing trend in purpose-built meeting rooms to meet specific need such as remote court rooms and self-service technology solutions to enable your team to manage the conference setup and modernise complex collaboration environments. Our experts have worked in this space for more than 25 years – and you can benefit from our real world experience across multiple sectors and varied customer requirements.

From huddle rooms to boardrooms and theatre style auditoriums; conference room technology will have to be smarter and better, and there has never been a better time to make the necessary changes.
