BOOST PRODUCTIVITY WITH SIMPLIFIED ZOOM VIDEO CONFERENCING
In 2020, the pandemic turned the Zoom videoconferencing platform from an excellent business collaboration tool created by a fast-growing startup into a household word. Zoom became the default video conferencing solution for business, socializing and communication.
While casual users may think Zoom is just a video communication app, businesses and organizations know it is a powerful collaboration platform. But many organizations already have existing conference room systems with legacy videoconferencing capabilities. And while many workers are still remote, some employees don't have the option and must work in an office. How can you meld Zoom into your meeting spaces to allow both groups and individuals at your Phoenix, AZ offices to collaborate seamlessly with remote workers and teams anywhere? That’s what Zoom Rooms are all about. Keep reading to see how to integrate Zoom into any meeting space.
WATCH THESE TRENDS AS NEW WORKPLACE DYNAMICS CONTINUE TO UNFOLD
Needless to say, 2020 was a tumultuous year. It affected almost every aspect of society, from socialization to education to healthcare. And the workplace was not exempted. With the ongoing pandemic, companies large and small are rethinking and reimagining the workplace and how teams get things done.
The trends driving remote work, decreased business travel, and increasing collaboration through online tools are not new, but they were accelerated by the need to maintain social distancing in workplaces. These trends will not slow down; indeed, we expect Phoenix, AZ businesses to continue to increase investments in conference room automation and collaboration solutions to work more productively and efficiently, in and out of the office. Keep reading for three trends that will continue to stay on the fast track!
IMPROVE COMMUNICATION AND COLLABORATION WITH BETTER VISUALS AND SOUND
Do you remember Verizon's popular commercial series with the slogan "Can you hear me now?" This is one phrase you don't want to hear if you are on an audio or video conferencing call in your meeting room. Even if you only lose a few minutes to some garbled audio or video, think about the productivity loss. You have your team in the meeting room, your partners or supplier's team on the other end, and many people on both sides participating remotely. Multiply what all those professionals get paid for their services, and you might be surprised what a few wasted minutes of a meeting actually cost your organization.
You can banish “can you hear me now” or perhaps the newer “can you see me now” from your meetings with some smart investments in new audio-visual systems for your Tempe, AZ, offices. Read on for three ways to up your collaboration game in your meeting spaces.
BUILD SMARTER PROPERTIES WITH INTEGRATED AUDIO-VISUAL SOLUTIONS
The current pandemic has had many profound effects, but some of the longer-term ones will become more evident over the next few years.

While that doesn't mean no one will work in offices anymore, it does mean buildings will need to have the sophisticated audio-visual infrastructure to support the work models of the future.

MAKE BRICK AND MORTAR RETAIL AN EXPERIENCE WITH INTERACTIVITY AND ENGAGEMENT
It’s no secret that retail sales at brick and mortar stores are losing ground every year to online shopping. With the ongoing pandemic, brick and mortar retail is hurting even more and may experience more fallout. Is physical retail dying? No, but just as technology has reshaped the shopping experience online, technology can invigorate the physical shopping experience too.
While shopping for sundries and household needs might be easier to do online, shopping for fashion, cosmetics, and other fine goods that appeal to more than the visual sense is still a more pleasurable experience in person. In Scottsdale, shopping centers like the Fashion Square, Kierland Commons, and more cater to an upscale shopping experience. But retailers may need to adopt solutions to create more differentiated shopping opportunities in-store to get people away from screens at home.
What might be such a solution? Interestingly enough, it involves more screens, big screens, and many of them. Read on for suggestions on how to liven up physical shopping settings in Scottsdale with video wall displays.
