Conference room technology is constantly evolving, which often results in outdated and inefficient technology in your meeting space. How do you solve this issue? Quick answer, JUMPSTART ROOMS.
Over the past 10 years organizations and consumers have experienced the most rapid advancement, change, and emergence of technology solutions of every sort. From network infrastructure, to audio visual solutions, to security systems. From social media applications, to online subscription services, to internet gaming. From AI (artificial intelligence), to VR (virtual reality), to IoT (internet of things). The R&D budgets of manufacturers along with customer appetite for more, better, faster, different, ensures change will never stop.
When a company needs new technology for their conference space, it can take weeks to months to get the proper system implemented and the cost can be extreme. Ned Coleman, CEO, had the vision to create pre-designed conference room system bundles to take the stress out of customer’s shopping process and lower the financial impact of implementing new technology. This idea blossomed into JUMPSTART ROOMS.
It's time to design your meeting space. Whether you're starting from scratch or updating your current workspace, there are numerous details to consider during the design process. Smarter Systems specializes in room design and below are seven key points we suggest thinking about when designing your conference space.
We’re quickly settling into our new office space in the Whitehall Technology Park in Charlotte, North Carolina. This new space allows us to easily get to our clients near and far, has warehousing space to better prepare for projects, and room to continue growing.
Back to "normal"? Nope, not so fast! I'm not sure our expectations of "normal" will ever be the same after the things we have experienced over the last few months. If you'd told me in December when I was setting my 2020 goals that a virus would change our world, I would've called you crazy! But the truth is, it has changed everything. If you look around, you will see that life as we know it has changed both in our personal and professional worlds.
In the midst of this Coronavirus (COVID-19) disruption to our lives and businesses, if you’re anything like me, you are wondering how long until we get back to “normal”? I long for the days of seeing my teams gathered around a conference room table, collaborating on a new idea or discussing an upcoming project. I want to be able to grab lunch with a co-worker and connect face-to-face. I want to sit down in my office for a one-to-one with a direct report, instead of using video conferencing to discuss our goals for the month. Don’t you?
I have always found myself an interested observer of other businesses and business models. I guess it's the entrepreneur in me—what a time to be watching what others are doing with their company. From crisis to calm, some are in their busiest season ever while others are shutting their doors. I find a majority are in the middle. They are weathering this storm, and those that learn to leverage this time will come back stronger.
It's more important than ever to have technology that allows remote teams to work collaboratively from remote places. With Coronavirus (COVID-19) making global headlines, many large organizations have halted international travel, and they've started to strict non-essential travel here in the US. Work from home is quickly becoming the norm. Even small businesses are starting to feel the impacts and realize the importance of having technology that connects people, so everyone can continue to work.
Hope for the best and plan for the worst is the mantra replaying worldwide as the concern of Coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads. Whether you are worried or not, it’s a serious concern for many Charlotte businesses where Smarter Systems is headquartered. Just this week, we had planned to attend a networking event which was canceled due to health concerns. With each passing day we hear of clients and friends with new business travel restrictions or mandates to work remotely if possible.
