How To Improve Productivity With Boardroom Technology

Meeting spaces and boardrooms contribute to an organization’s success in many ways.  It’s where the magic of business comes to life.  A team of minds collaborating on a new ‘million dollar’ idea requires a space where communication and creativity can flow easily.  

There are endless options of different technologies that will transform your meeting space into a room where efficiency and automation are streamlined.  Taking away frustrating technological barriers and providing turnkey automated systems goes a long way in assisting your team to produce the best results and remain engaged in the project.

There are several ways that you can improve your boardroom and meeting space technology, in turn, improving productivity. 


Meeting Spaces and Communication

One of the biggest contributions to failures and errors is the lack of communication or miscommunication.  Everyone has a unique communication style and at the best of times, it’s challenging to ensure the correct message is being relayed to others.

As quoted in the article “The Cost of Poor Communication” that miscommunication can cost even smaller companies of 100 employees an average of $420,000 per year. 

That’s a lot of money lost just because of communication.  That stat alone should have every organization working towards closing the communication gap.

Equipping your meeting space with white noise can assist in a couple of ways.  Installing a Cambridge Sound masking system promotes speech privacy and prevents accidental listening, creating more productive workspaces that allow employees to focus on the task at hand.  

Get your boardrooms and meeting spaces set up for crystal clear communication with in-ceiling speakers to amplify conference calls or presentations ensuring everyone is able to hear all that is going on. 


Meeting Spaces and Automation

When preparing for that monumental meeting the last thing one wants to be concerned about is how to use the boardroom presentation system.  Doing a presentation for a key prospect is stressful at the best of times, having technological malfunctions are not an option.  

Outfitting your organization’s meeting rooms with turnkey/plug & play control system solutions is vital for your team.  Walking in and pressing one button to turn on the whole system vs going through a 15 step manual makes all the difference to that staff member who may not be tech-savvy.  


Meeting Space Displays

The options are endless when it comes to choosing a display for your meeting room.  Do you want it to be interactive?  With a projector? All the major manufactures offer excellent solutions for displays depending on what your needs are.  Some of the major players include: LG, Samsung, Viewsonic, Sharp, NEC 


The New Meeting Spaces – Post COVID-19

In light of today’s events and the mandate to work remotely, meeting spaces are being transformed into video conferencing hubs.  As a new normal is being discovered with social distancing measures to take into consideration the flexibility of meetings spaces becomes even more important. 

As new legislation and workplace rules are executed, organizations will need to comply in creating safe yet effective meeting spaces.
