What 8 Months of Online Collaboration Have Taught Us

Let us be your collaborative partner during your next Audio Visual Project

Over the past year, many of us have worked from home. We have collaborated online while sitting in the space we have available to us: home offices, basements, guest rooms and even laundry rooms. And, to our credit, we have made it work.
As we contemplate a possible return to the office, IT departments know that a large number of office workers will likely continue remote work. The question is how does IT accommodate for that eventuality?
Zachary Comeau explores this topic in Commercial Integrator’s October article, “Two Things We’ve Learned About Collaboration Technology Trends During COVID-19”. The article looks at the “dispersed workforce” and what the last eight months have taught us…what tools worked, what we already have in place and what tools will we need.

Key learnings?

“Platform-agnostic collaboration” will be key to harmonizing remote and physical workspaces. Integrators will need to focus on platforms that go beyond simply web and video conferencing. User demands for product enhancements in the collaboration realm could put single platforms in jeopardy.
Lastly, eight months of online collaboration confirms it: sound and viewing capability on tablets and laptops don’t work for important meetings. New collaboration displays should be a part of IT planning needs.

For those of you who don’t have an IT department, Century Audio Visual’s new design service can fill that need. We bring your downtown boardroom home. Century Audio Visual will work directly with you to customize your equipment and service needs for your home office space. Simply contact us to inquire.
