Huddle Space Benefits

Huddle rooms are an essential part of today’s modern workplace and bring with them a number of advantages that will help to enhance collaboration and improve decision making.

  1. User friendly – Huddle rooms are designed to be simple to use. As a space that can be utilised by numerous different people doing numerous different things, it’s essential that there is little to no learning curve when it comes to the technology within them. By opting for intuitive interfaces, often ones that work like consumer devices, you can create a space that simply lets employees get on with doing their jobs.
  2. Flexible – This simplicity also makes huddle rooms flexible. By having only a small inventory of core collaboration technology, the rooms can be utilised in a number of different ways. From quick 1-1 catch-ups and briefings between remote and local employees to unscheduled ideas-sharing between colleagues and a quiet space for individual work, the huddle room can accommodate this and more.
  3. Cost-effective – In recent years many expensively kitted out meeting rooms have been under utilised as working practices have changed and enterprises have moved away from hosting large numbers of formal meetings. The huddle room is perfectly suited to today’s working practices and requires a lot less investment than boardrooms.
  4. Increases productivity – Huddles only happen when there is a need for them; huddle rooms should be used when needed to solve specific problems or achieve specific goals. By going into a huddle room with a clear idea of what needs to be achieved and only those people present who can help to achieve that aim, meetings will run more smoothly and be more targeted, leading to increased efficiency.
  5. Use your real estate more effectively – By definition, huddle rooms are small spaces, making them a great way to optimise under-utilised areas of your office. To get started with a huddle room all you need is a video conferencing system, and a previously unused area can become an effective collaboration space. Not only that but as huddle rooms will inevitably be the preferred space for many employees, especially those who need to share ideas with their immediate team on a regular basis, this will mean larger spaces and boardrooms are no longer wasted on small catch-ups and instead will be available for larger meetings when needed.

These are just some of the advantages huddle rooms bring to an organisation. To find out more download our Huddle Space guide by clicking on the link below.

The benefits of managed services in an education environment

When you think of the convergence of AV and IT, the first sector that springs to mind is probably corporate. There’s no denying that this market has been impacted heavily by the IT-ification of AV and the move towards software over hardware, but it’s certainly not the only area in which the benefits of convergence can be reaped.

Take education, for example. Higher education in particular has undergone major changes in recent years, especially when it comes to how estates are managed and by whom. In many institutions, IT is the driving force behind the AV teams, even in those where AV comes under the Facilities Management or Estates sections. This isn’t without its challenges, however, and while some institutions have managed to merge their teams and make a success of this, others are ‘de-merging’ again.

How AV managed services can add value to your business

Managed services have grown in popularity across the AV sector as users want to ensure their systems operate as they should for the longest time possible and with the minimum downtime.

However, there has been some confusion about what is covered by managed services and what users should expect from any agreement. In short, AV managed services devolves the management and maintenance of AV to the service provider. This can include everything from lifecycle design/build to onsite support and analytics.

As this is quite a wide-ranging definition, to get the most out of any managed services agreement, it’s important to understand the scope of the deal and how it will benefit your AV inventory. Read more
