Effortless connection between office-based and remote-working employees helps to maintain productivity in exceptional times.
RETURNING TO WORK – BUT NOT AS WE KNOW IT
Organizations across all sectors have relied on remote voice and video collaboration solutions to keep colleagues connected throughout the recent global lockdown. Now, as employees gradually return to the workplace, what next for audio video (AV) collaboration?
Not all employees will return to the office immediately – if at all. So, it’s important to provide the same audio quality to your home-based employees as you do to those using meeting rooms at work. It’s how you’ll maintain the productivity you need to survive and thrive in the months ahead.

Lessons were delivered via online modules and virtual collaboration tools. Throughout the lockdown, teachers and lecturers used videoconferencing solutions more suited to social interaction than to delivering learning.
THE NEW SHAPE OF OFFICE COLLABORATION
What will office collaboration look for the rest of this year and beyond? Certainly, it will be different to what it was at the start of 2020.

Many employees will continue working from home, so there will be fewer people sharing rooms.
