Technology is transforming the way in which we live and work in surprising and unexpected ways. Computing power and cloud connectivity, coupled with mobile devices means we can now walk into a meeting room and share content from one device to another totally wirelessly. Or from one location to another without even having to give it much thought. Touchscreen technology is redefining classrooms and collaboration software is changing how we do business.
Recently we brought you our first blog, highlighting some stats found by BT in their research paper ‘The Mobile Multiplier’. In this blog, we are going to delve into the stats surrounding the importance of communication and collaboration, and how to make meetings more productive.
I first heard the term ‘huddle room’ around the summer of last year, and I’ll admit, I thought it was just a ‘hipster’, millennial term for a conference room. A fad that would soon fizzle out.
I stand corrected.
Towards the end of last year, BT brought out ‘The Mobile Multiplier’ – an excellent piece of research into what employees are looking for to make their working lives easier. It focuses on mobile working, but includes stats around flexible working, communication and collaboration that we found really interesting and, in turn, would like to share with you. The first blog in this series will focus on Flexible Working.
Feeling isolated, kept out of the loop and difficulty sharing ideas. These are common gripes amongst employees during meetings that could easily be solved with better internal communications.
At DisplayNote Technologies, we have offices in two locations – one in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and one in Murcia, Spain. We know the importance of internal communications, and are aware of the challenges that are faced when teams are split over different locations and time zones.
Getting stuff done in today’s organisations is very complex: teams use different tools, different operating systems, different displays – making it especially difficult for departments to collaborate.
Is your boardroom used to its full potential? Or does it lie empty for the majority of the time? We highlight how to truly transform your boardroom with collaborative solutions.
It's a popular concept - using software solutions to enhance your existing hardware. And Wireless Presentation Systems can do this.
I know what you’re thinking. How do fidget spinners and collaborative tools even belong in the same sentence? A fidget spinner is quite the opposite to collaborative tools – only one person can use a fidget spinner at a time. Zero collaboration.
However, hear me out.
With 96% of execs citing lack of collaboration and ineffective communication as the main source for workplace failures, it’s no surprise that our Montage Wireless Presentation System has been adopted all over the world.
