WORKPLACE TRANSFORMATION

There is a critical need for workplace transformation today – creating flexible office environments that adapt to support how we work now and in the future.

When you thoughtfully combine people, space, and technology, it can foster new levels of collaboration and innovation.

How Are We Different

How are we different?

What really separates us from other AV/IT integrator/consultants is that we are not just technology experts, but experts in space and its impact on organizations. In a challenging, complex and competitive environment, we are all united by a common desire to anticipate the future and make thoughtful decisions.

That is why our experts and our parent company Steelcase, spend time analyzing trends and thinking about what lies ahead. We know that space shapes the behavior of employees, and behavior over time becomes the culture of an organization. Space and technology are the second largest business expense after salaries and a critical strategic asset in driving an engaged workplace culture.

What are your technology design goals?

people collaborating with technology in different spacesWhat are your technology design goals?

Purchasing technology for your organization is a significant investment in time and resources, and needs to be well-thought out. There are a number of questions you should ask to discover the right solutions for you:

Goals 2-up

How is technology used in your organization?
Is it for scheduled meetings? Impromptu collaboration? Displaying content? Interactive collaboration? Company-wide news and announcements?

How effective is the technology you currently use?
What capabilities would make your people more productive? What are you currently not able to achieve that you would like to? How long does it typically take your people to start a meeting? Is the user experience consistent, whether someone is working locally in an office or remote?

Do you use web or video conferencing?
Do people typically meet face-to-face using displays to share content? What percentage of your workforce works remotely? How frequently are people looking to collaborate with others that are both local and remote? Do remote workers have a satisfying and productive user experience?

Do you have a standard platform across the organization?
Are you standardized on Microsoft or Cisco? Do you instead use a mixed platform of solutions? Do you have challenges with the interoperability of a mix of conferencing applications and/or video conferencing systems?

What is your workplace culture?
Is your organization more “classic,” seeking practical, cost effective solutions that get the job done? These solutions might include basic engineered systems.

Is your organization more progressive, seeking immersive technologies integrated holistically within the space to drive a creative and collaborative workplace culture? These solutions might include open and enclosed spaces with bundled systems and all-in-one solutions.

Does your organization require integrated high-performance systems that provide the highest fidelity video and audio for local and remote participants? These solutions might include integrated conferencing systems.
