Your team are heading back to the office for some of their working weeks, but does that workspace inspire creativity, productivity and collaboration?
With the dramatic rise in remote work, people have become accustomed to the convenience of technology and expect the same level of innovation in their office environment. Interactive technology offers the perfect solution, providing an intuitive and dynamic way to collaborate, present and learn.
How? Let's start in the boardroom.
Imagine being able to walk into your boardroom, connect to a large touchscreen display and hit the ground running with a truly dynamic presentation. No more PowerPoint, we're talking pinch zooming, drawing diagrams and annotating live during your presentation. With interactive touchscreens, you can elevate your presentations to a whole new level, engaging your audience in a way that traditional tools just can't match.
Not only do interactive touchscreens offer a more dynamic way to present information, but they also allow for more collaboration and interaction among team members. For example, with a touch screen, team members can work together to create and edit presentations in real-time, without the need for multiple devices or clunky software.
But the boardroom benefits don't stop there. They can also be used for video conferencing, allowing team members to connect face-to-face from different locations - handy in a hybrid world. And with the ability to share screens and annotate documents in real time, the collaborative potential of touch screens is limitless.
What about Interactive Touchscreens in the Staff Room?
You might not think interactive touch screens have a place here, but what about a touch screen display that employees can use to view announcements and company news/information?
Another popular use is to encourage entertainment and relaxation during breaks. With the ability to stream videos, access mindfulness apps and play games, touch screens can provide a fun and engaging way for employees to unwind and recharge during their break time too.
The true beauty is, the choice is yours. What matters to your business and your employees is what you'd use this interactive for; no two are ever going to be the same.
What about training spaces?
Interactives are becoming more widely used for staff training and for good reason - experiential learning is known to improve the retention and understanding of information.
Instead of sitting through hours of lectures or reading lengthy documents, employees can engage with training material in a more enjoyable and immersive way. For example, imagine a training program that uses interactive technology to simulate real-world scenarios and allows employees to react and learn?
One great example of this is BP, who have implemented interactive touch screens in their training centres to provide an engaging and immersive experience for their employees. The touch screens are used to train employees on a range of topics, from safety procedures to leadership development, as well as technical skills. The screens allow employees to interact with 3D models and simulations, as well as access multimedia content such as videos and animations, which helps to enhance the learning experience.
The future of modern workspaces looks bright and touchscreen-feely! With technology advancing at breakneck speed, interactive touchscreens in corporate settings are a great tool for unlocking a world of creativity, collaboration and communication.
We'd love to know your thoughts and experiences, where do touchscreens feature in your office, or where do you wish they did?
