HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Dec. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In order to help businesses make the most of their meeting spaces, video conferencing services, IVCi, discusses 3 evolution trends of huddle rooms for companies.
Moving forward, meeting spaces will continue to change from traditional boardrooms to more small and intimate spaces that have the flexibility to support both structured meetings and impromptu collaboration.
Included below are 3 trends to consider while designing huddle spaces in an office environment.
Cloud-Based Collaboration Software. Since huddle rooms are smaller spaces, companies are taking advantage of technology for a more expansive and flexible work environment. While some traditional conferencing solutions require that users log into a specific platform from specific devices, cloud-based conference rooms allow users to drop in and out from desktops, laptops, and mobile devices.
This technology allows companies to expand beyond the walls of a small conference room and foster communication in a dynamic online environment.
Artificial Intelligence. Smart technology has become a major trend for consumers, but those same conveniences and utilities translate quite well into the business environment as well. Mundane administrative tasks can be automated quickly and efficiency with smart assistants, which leaves employees free to focus on the big picture.
Many smart technology solutions also offer affordable video conferencing in addition to their smart utilities, making them a multipurpose device that improves the meeting area from multiple angles. In a small huddle space, flexibility is the name of the game, and artificial intelligence through smart technology is a major part of that.
Dynamic Room Scheduling. One of the aspects that makes huddle rooms so great is the ability for employees to drop in and meet on the fly. Technology advances have made it possible to design rooms with scheduling technology that dynamically interfaces with company calendar software. Workers will be able to tell at a glance whether a room is available, which makes the drop-in nature of these meetings much easier to coordinate.
With mid-sized or large companies housing more than a few huddle rooms, this trend will make it easier than ever before to take advantage of the flexibility that these spaces bring to the table.
