Why invest in collaboration technology?

1 Jun 2017 - Audio Visual Systems, General Info

The way we work is changing. Staff are now often working in different locations and off mobile devices. Office layouts are changing from densely packed desks to open environments. Collaboration isn’t just occurring in meetings -  new huddle spaces are allowing for small groups to brainstorm anytime and anywhere.

One of the biggest shifts in the workplace is the evolution of meeting spaces.  Meeting spaces can now range from large video conferencing offices through to small break-out huddle spaces. Yet one of the biggest challenges is ensuring each space is accessible, user friendly and easy to connect to.

On average, employees avoid 29% of meeting spaces due to insufficient tools or design when collaborating as a group.* It is not very often when all staff feel like everything just clicks, where ideas flow freely and everyone feels fully engaged when working collaboratively. This is not only a massive cost to productivity but can also be a waste of valuable space.

If you can relate to this meeting experience, it may be time to re-evaluate the technology in your meeting spaces.

A collaboration device that is taking meeting spaces to the next level is the Microsoft Surface Hub.

Built for forward-thinking workplace environments, the Surface Hub is the first of its kind with hardware, software, services and applications all built in the one device. It delivers the functionality of a whiteboard, a conferencing system, and a presentation screen while utilising an array of apps.

As an all-in-one device you can use it on its own, for collaboration, presentations, and videoconferencing. However it can also be used in conjunction with laptops, tablets, teleconferencing systems, etc, since it comes with so many connection ports.

The Microsoft Surface Hub integrates beautifully into every modern workplace, enabling productivity in any space where people come together to get things done, from large conference rooms to informal huddle spaces to offices. The fully integrated design, choice of two screen sizes, and flexible mounting configurations means there’s a solution for your business needs.

It is a product that needs to be seen and experienced to truly appreciate its power. If you would like a full demonstration of the Surface Hub, get in touch with us: sales@proavsolutions.com.au
