We have been helping companies for over 10 years with Video Conferencing technologies for the workplace. We believe it is a crucial part of any business, allowing employees to connect with each other and their clients, anytime and anywhere. Although the first thought would be it creates improved productivity, we believe the best benefit to any business is better communications and collaboration, productivity is the outcome.
But Video Conferencing is just the beginning, not the end. As we look towards the next few years, both our physical offices and our workplace technology solutions will continually evolve. Let’s take a look at some of these solutions and just a few points of how they will help us all improve communication and collaboration within your organizations, allowing people from different departments, partners, and clients to work together on projects without being in the same room.
Video conferencing is a great way to place to start. It connects employees who, regardless of location, remotely, on a work site, or from home. The benefit of video conferencing is its versatility. It can also be used for training, meetings, live demos, one-on-one conversations and a wide variety of presentations.
It’s been proven over the past decade, by using video conferencing you will save money on travel costs. But that only scratches the surface of the benefits to your company. Better communications, inter and intra-collaboration, improved work-live balance for employees, and many more are the true benefits.
We believe the variety of uses will only increase in the future. We are dedicated to helping our clients reap these benefits and believe each of them has unique and individual requirements. It’s our goal to design from the “conference out”, that means creating offices, meeting spaces, boardrooms, training rooms, etc. that work withing bot the companies’ goals and their budgets.
That is why, we have solutions beyond the video conferencing room. These solutions encompass the Whole Office and the underlying technologies to support improved productivity and collaboration across the entire enterprise.

Audio Visual Design
When you think of the word “office,” what comes to mind? Chances are, you imagine rows of cubicles and employees hunched over their computers. But there’s no reason for your workspace to be so one-dimensional. We believe that technology is more than just a means of communication—it can also be used as an effective tool for your employees to just work better and smarter. That’s why we’ve spent so much time working with our clients to determine their needs, not just for today, but where they want to be 5 or 10 years. Nothing is easy, but if you are dedicated to providing a great workplace for your employees and take into consideration all aspects of office technology, not just the “project” needed to be completed today, it becomes easier to look at your technology as a roadmap.
We have worked with many clients in designing AV solutions that work for them today and can be leveraged into the future. No one can fully predict where any one technology will be in a decade, but by working with us, we can help navigate along the way.
Having a coordinate technology plan for your physical offices that is planned and staged for the future, along with updates and meetings along with the way, will ensure your AV technologies will support your business and provide real ROI on your investments.
While collaboration technologies have been around for a while, it’s only recently that they’ve become so advanced and required. The best solutions today are able to bring people together from all over the world and allow them to work together seamlessly.
The results are undeniable: improved communication leads to better collaboration, which in turn contributes directly to better business outcomes. If your workplace has already implemented some of these solutions, we encourage you to try out more! If you don’t have an implementation plan in place, consider this digital workspace guide as a starting point for brainstorming about how these solutions can benefit your organization as well.
