So why is it that a dedicated conference room touchscreen is better than a store bought wireless tablet when there are so many seemingly great, versatile options on the market? Here are a few reasons why I believe you should forgo the iPads, the Surfaces, and the Galaxy Tabs for a touchscreen that will serve a specific function just for that room.
Conference rooms simply can’t be like the ones of old anymore. You know the rooms I’m taking about, with the overhead projectors and easels, or perhaps a whiteboard. No, today’s meeting room has to be state of the art. Here are a few key things you would need to make yours just that.
It may already be evident, though, if you work in an office where a lot of meetings occur. Meetings can take up a lot of time. And not just the meetings themselves. It’s the prep, the gathering and settling in, the connecting of both devices and people. It’s time consuming. And that’s if it’s well organized. So here are a few reasons why having your tech up-to-date and always ready to go is so important in a meeting space so you’re not wasting precious time and money.
If you’ve been considering a meeting room upgrade, then there’s a lot to factor in before you get started. Upgrading a meeting area is often an expensive undertaking that could include extensive infrastructure and tech changes, and without proper planning, you could end up wasting a lot of money.
One way to make those gatherings more bearable is to make sure your office’s meeting room is consistent with your company’s brand and quality standards. Here are four best practices to follow to get the most out of this space.
Chances are, if you’ve worked in an office environment for some time, you’ve been able to witness, and probably take part in, a shift in the space where you work. This evolution has been slow and incremental, but I’m willing to bet the office you go to everyday bears little resemblance to an office of say, 20 or 30 years ago.
In a previous post, I talked about some of the issues that arise when it comes to scheduling a meeting in a huddle or conference room, so today I want to highlight a product that has made our huddle rooms more efficient and perform at the highest level. The Crestron Mercury is a product that we use in our own office, and it’s been a standout for us in our huddle rooms.
Many corporate projects that we work on are upgrades to existing office spaces. Sometimes, though, we get to be involved in the total transformation of a space from scratch. So when one of our customers approached us wanting to add a boardroom to his business, we got to see, and participate in, the creation of a really elegant new space for his company.
The choice of projector ultimately will depend on your setting and your budget. One of the major factors that will affect your decision when buying a projector is the intended use.
An upgrade to an existing space doesn’t always have to be a complete overhaul in order to make a big difference to the performance of the room. At the end of the project, our client gained newer technology that was user friendly. He walked away with a newly imagined space that is now more dynamic, more efficient, and more capable of meeting all his company’s needs.
