Interactive technologies are shaping the way in which we work and collaborate with fellow colleagues. Whether it be artificial intelligence or cloud platforms, this technology is changing how we interact and complete tasks.
Wearable technology, such as smart watches and AI-enabled devices, have started playing a big role in how work gets done.
A survey by Oblong Industries found that 91% of IT professionals agreed or strongly agreed that “engaging with data and information using interactive, immersive methods can help to solve complex business issues,” indicating that workers prefer having access to interactive technology as it allows for flexibility and improves productivity.
Cloud services and Software as a Service (SaaS) have also given remote employees a chance to work in synchronicity with colleagues who live thousands of miles away.
The inclusion of smart meeting rooms is growing in popularity as flexible office design becomes more prominent. It is common to see interactive displays and smart furniture in these rooms, which allow for much more productive and efficient meetings with team members.
Collaboration tools are another way to provide an interactive, flexible workplace by offering real-time updates and the ability to share ideas all in one location.
The growth of Huddle Rooms has also encouraged a new level of connectivity within the office. They differ from meeting rooms as they are typically smaller spaces designed for creative gatherings or briefings and are equipped with the appropriate technology needed. It maintains a collaborative feel and encourages data sharing between meeting members.
