Digital display solutions for the modern office in 2021
While it might once have been the sole reserve of only the most high-tech companies, digital signage is fast becoming commonplace in the modern workplace. Not only does it help with your brand identity and give both employees and visitors something more interesting to look at than dull static images and information but it can even be used to help people navigate the office.
Here, we’ll be taking you through a few of the major digital display trends that we’ve noticed making waves in offices across the country in the last few months.
The conference/meeting room
Let’s face it, a large amount of our daily time in the office is often spent in meeting rooms or conference halls. But while it used to be standard practice to sit around a whiteboard and take turns outlining our ideas, digital displays have rendered these antiquated techniques obsolete.
Today, interactive displays can be used to engage employees and hold the attention of everyone in the room with vibrant graphics and figures. Digital signage solutions have even been developed to help with conference room booking and visitor management, so the implications are practically endless.
While we appreciate this might not necessarily be a practical idea for smaller offices, for larger workspaces, wayfinding is a consideration that needs to be made. With digital displays, this can mean everything from interactive maps to advanced features that let employees search for people and rooms across multiple floors.
By combining a digital display solution with a decent soundbar, such as the Bose VB1, there are dozens of practical applications to consider for the office. For example, the VB1 can be used not only as a recording and audio playing device to allow different teams from across the globe to communicate clearly and precisely but it also features a 4K camera that can capture an entire room with no fuss.
These kinds of practical all-in-one solutions are fast becoming the new normal as far as video conferencing is concerned and they can easily be connected to your existing infrastructure too. So, you could quite comfortably hook up your smartphones and share information directly from them or hook the meeting directly into the entire office’s PA system. The options are all there.
Personalisation and customisation
Branding has never been more important in the workplace. With the latest digital signage software, you can ensure your company branding is present on all screens, creating a more cohesive experience for everyone. Looking ahead, there are even potential applications for artificial intelligence that can collect data and then use it to automatically personalise the experience of every employee.
Above all else, the future of digital displays in the workplace is all about integration. In just a few years, even smaller offices will boast complete office ecosystems that can integrate all office-based software and hardware into a single unifying entity. This will not only improve the daily operations of the office but give employees and more personal experience and empower them to do more.
