While the focus for many has been on remote working, innovation has continued apace in physical workspaces too, with technology helping to create seamless experiences for users no matter their location.
Thirteen Group was keen to implement modern workplace technology and maximise desk management and meeting spaces at its new flagship three-story office in Middlesbrough, UK. The company turned to Visavvi to deliver a comprehensive visitor management system with desk and room booking while also equipping multiple meeting, collaboration and open plan desk spaces. This included the first UK installation of the GoBright workplace management platform.
AV technology is in evidence across the building. Poly Studios are used in a number of meeting rooms to keep colleagues and partners connected when working remotely, along with Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub 500 collaboration systems connected to Logitech Rally pan, tilt, zoom cameras. Content sharing is made easy with Barco Clickshares. LED screens have been installed in a variety of sizes throughout the building to provide exceptional viewing of all presentation and meeting content, while digital signage screens relay important organisation information keeping staff and visitors updated.
At fitness clothing brand Gymshark’s new technology-led workspace in the West Midlands, the aim was to put the user at the heart of the workspace. Solutions were chosen to facilitate innovation and foster creativity across multiple zones, while supporting communication among the more than 600 employees globally and promoting advanced digital collaboration.
The space features a podcast studio, ecommerce studios, numerous creative hubs, pods for solo working that feature Poly X Series videoconferencing bars and Samsung screens, open office space, Zoom-equipped meeting pods and multiple soundproofed meeting rooms. Collaboration is at the heart of the meeting rooms and all are fully equipped Zoom Rooms so global teams can connect easily, with device-agnostic screen sharing and plug and play screen connectivity for on-the-go meetings.
Samsung digital signage in common seating areas allows the company to communicate with teams in real-time. In addition, a Lab meeting room used for collaborative meetings features a Samsung 2×2 interactive video wall, Poly G Series videoconferencing and Mural collaboration software.
