Businesses worldwide have been forced to leverage technology and work differently over the last six months. Many now want to continue that momentum. I wanted to find a guest who is passionate about the subject and working with the tech that is changing things but also has the ear of many of the world’s biggest organizations.
My search took me to Andrew Gross from Crestron, one of The world’s leading innovators of advanced control & automation systems for the office, campus & luxury home, and their tag line is reinventing how people live & work.
So I invited Andrew on the podcast today to discuss the types of technologies that will support a safe yet collaborative return to offices following the pandemic. I learn more about how occupancy sensors make sure new capacity limits aren’t exceeded in meeting rooms and how automated meeting start technology forgoes the need to touch A/V equipment (detects people, starts meeting tech)/
We also talk about the need for easily transportable (rolling) conference room equipment that can turn any space (lobbies, hallways, any larger areas) into a meeting room for easy social distancing. The ability to control meetings and share presentations and content from a personal device without the need to touch shared conference room equipment is also increasing in popularity.
In a world where employees now expect to be able to work from anywhere, I also learn how enhanced real-time video conferencing and whiteboard technology is making employees that are socially distanced across meeting rooms and even remote employees feel like they’re right there.
