What Facilities Managers Need to Know About the Collaborative Workplace

At the National Facilities Management & Technology Conference in Baltimore, one of AVI-SPL’s own will be on hand to deliver a presentation called “Managing the Collaborative Workplace.”

Rebecca Meier, AVI-SPL channel development manager, North America, will look at the workplace trends that facilities managers should be aware of, and offer advice on how to work with companies that are creating collaborative spaces. On the agenda:

  • Learn about collaborative workplace trends so they can anticipate challenges to their responsibilities in managing their facilities
  • Learn why the cloud is the strongest trend in the collaborative work system, and about cloud management resources supporting that system
  • Gain insight into working with consultants and integrators and aligning them with their company’s interests
  • Understand why it’s important to collect and analyze workplace data to manage digital business in the workplace

Rebecca’s presentation will start at 10 am, Thurs., March 9 in room 341 at the Baltimore Convention Center.

Crestron Huddle Room Challenge: The Results Are In

The goal was simple:  Show companies how easy it can be to install the collaboration technology that turns a huddle room into a collaboration space, one that brings people and ideas together. And that’s what we did with the Crestron Huddle Room Challenge Sweepstakes that we launched last November. If contestants could assemble the Crestron HD-MD-400 in their respective huddle rooms in under an hour, they would keep the equipment and have the chance to win more prizes.

Well, the results are in, and they’re everything we’d hoped for. Nearly 100 teams entered, and the responses were extremely positive. Take a look at just a few of the testimonials:

“It’s pretty cool because only one of the two boxes need to get plugged in. Whichever one is plugged in, the other is given power over twisted pair. Very cool!”

“I’ll definitely be adding this to our spec sheet when we upgrade our Council Chambers AV this year!!”

“All in all, it was a completely painless setup experience – from box to boardroom in 15 minutes. The equipment is rugged, well-made, and clearly marked. We’re currently planning a presentation system for our new County meeting hall using this system as a model.”

As these firsthand testimonials show, there’s no need to hesitate when it comes to improving your meeting spaces. Check out the start-to-finish gallery below from one of our participants, and then watch the video of one contestant setting up the system in just 10 minutes.
