Expertly managing rooms and facilities for variable work patterns requires focus. Online room booking and room sensors give employees flexibility and allow your organisation to manage room occupancy and people flow. A room control system lets you stay on top of things from a single dashboard. Quality audio conferencing makes good meetings great.
As we gradually return to work and require a more flexible approach to using workspaces, it will be vital for the majority of businesses to implement effective room booking solutions. Employees are likely to adopt more variable working patterns and will meet when necessary and potentially less frequently. So there will be a growing demand for real time solutions that enable employees to view availability and book meeting room spaces that meet their needs, as and when required. New technology now allows users to select a room that meets their requirements, with any additional equipment or services they need, in advance. Facilities managers need to manage room occupancy and adjust this over time. Room booking systems can help do this and can be integrated with room control and sensors to create a fully automated and streamlined experience. These solutions also provide a means to centralise fault management.Learn more
One of the main issues with video conferencing is unwanted background noise. The rustling of papers, clicking of pens, and even sound leakage from other rooms, can be picked up and cause dissatisfaction for those listening in. And with the pandemic causing further challenges to organisations, such as having to comply with physical distancing and hygiene standards in meeting rooms and the need to wear masks, voice intelligibility is damaged still further. To resolve this, we recommend specific types of microphones that are designed to pick up only intended audio whilst rejecting unwanted ambient noises. This provides consistent, reliable, meeting room audio regardless of the size or configuration of the meeting room.Learn more
Automation is valuable for minimising touch. You can control multiple AV systems in different locations from a single, secure dashboard. This dashboard is another tool to support unnecessary movement around buildings, letting a central administrator check workspace status from anywhere and reducing the need for IT staff to visit meeting spaces.
It’s more important than ever to create a comfortable workplace environment where hygiene and safety are consistently prioritised. High traffic areas will need to be monitored and the footfall will have to be staggered to allow for social distancing. Rooms sensors can be integrated into facilities management systems to allow organisations to collect data about incoming and outgoing traffic and alert individuals when an area has reached capacity.
