Find Out If You Have a Connected Workspace or a Horror Story

Business March 28, 2017

Have you ever heard someone in your office proclaim that technology hates them or is being disagreeable? When your team has technical difficulties when trying to connect or collaborate in a workspace, the office equipment becomes the enemy.

When all parts work together, the system becomes a living, breathing organism. The opposite happens when you're disconnected. You get something of a Frankenstein for a workspace. So, how can you ensure that all pieces work together in a way that makes it easier to work collaboratively?

Whether you are building it from scratch or piecing it together with new and existing tech, there a few things you can do.

Start with a Tech Checkup

The first step to figuring out how connected your existing systems are is to evaluate them through testing and user surveys to see what's working.

You could ask questions like:

  • Can you reserve spaces from your calendar? Do they have the capabilities you’ll need?
  • Will a room’s lighting and temperature automatically adjust?
  • Are you able to get the usage reports you want?
  • Which technology seems to never work right?
  • What feature is at the top of your wish list?

After answering these questions, you start to see where you're workspaces are. Getting insight from those who work in these spaces on a daily basis will surely provide some of the best feedback. But, there's still more to it.

Get a Connected Workspace

Once you have an idea of where you can improve the connectivity of your collaboration technologies, a professional integrator can walk you through how to optimize your system, and explore appropriate technology solutions for your organization.

The ultimate goal is a smart, connected workspace where all parts work together and speak to each other. Even if you have a disconnected office, you can turn it into a smart system -- leaving the Frankenstein room behind.
