Scheduling meetings is a common pain point for organizations of all sizes
Booking a free meeting space is one of the most common pain points workplace leaders face in the office. Often, disorganized scheduling systems lead to double-bookings that slow the flow of operations and result in lost productivity. And not only do double-bookings result in office inefficiencies but simply securing meeting space is hugely time-wasting for organizations. One research study suggests that workers spend up to 60 minutes per week searching for available conference rooms.
Meeting room systems are incredibly costly for your organization to set up and maintain. One solution for optimizing room efficiency is conference room scheduling that gives employees complete access to when and where meeting rooms are available 24/7. Crestron’s room scheduling solutions help your organization – whether in Tempe, AZ, or across the globe – manage the flow of people and ideas. Keep reading to learn how.
Effortlessly command your meeting spaces with integrated room control
Meetings are a fact of life in the modern-day workplace.

The one-size-fits-all conference room is no longer sufficient for mixed workforces
The modern workplace is undergoing a profound paradigm shift in 2021. Full-time in-office work is no longer the norm; instead, the new hybrid workplace includes an eclectic mix of full-time remote employees, full-time in-office employees, and part-time remote and in-office workers.
In the wake of these shifts, organizations must rethink one of the most foundational components of the modern office: meeting rooms. How does meeting room design need to pivot to meet the needs of globally dispersed workforces? Below, we outline four considerations your organization should keep top of mind to design effective and productive meeting spaces for your office locations in Scottsdale, AZ, and throughout the world.
Learn how Crestron UC products and services help organizations thrive in workplaces that are no longer tied to a physical location
The COVID-19 crisis in 2020 catalyzed a massive shift toward remote work on a scale unheard of until now. December 2020 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) indicated that 24% of the workforce (35.5 million people) were working from home at that time.
Multiple surveys taken throughout 2020 have revealed that many employees would like to continue working from home when the pandemic is over. A Pew Research Center survey from December 2020 reported that 54% of people whose jobs can be performed at home would want to work from home all or most of the time after the coronavirus outbreak ends.
And enterprise organizations have discovered — somewhat to their surprise — that remote work hasn’t hindered employee productivity or motivation, as many feared it would. As we move into a future that looks likely to embrace and expand more remote work opportunities, the looming question for businesses concerns long-term sustainability: how do we ensure that people can work together when they’re not together in person?
No longer is the workplace tied to a physical location, a cubicle, and a desktop computer that hasn’t been updated in several years. Instead, the workplace is in the cloud, it’s in the Zoom app on smartphones across America, it’s in shared Google docs, and it’s in laptops across America.
Unified communication (UC) collaboration tools are the bridge that makes the digital workplace possible. UC products and services integrate and deliver multiple communication channels and collaborative tools in a single platform. These platforms are cloud-delivered to facilitate a “work from anywhere” dynamic for hybrid workforces with in-person and remote employees.
Crestron Electronics is one of the manufacturers at the forefront of facilitating communications, collaboration, and productivity in the hybrid workplace. Room systems like Crestron Flex and cloud-based management tools like Crestron XiO Cloud are designed to help commercial organizations of all sizes adapt to the changing landscape of work.
