Over the last decade, the appearance of office spaces has changed beyond recognition. They have become more functional, modern and ergonomic. They significantly improved the work and enabled good-quality long-distance contacts. What improvements await us in the future?
Convenience and security
A modern smart office is a place ideally suited to the needs of employees. It is not only about an effective, friendly decor or proper space management, but also the ability to control factors such as: humidity and temperature in individual rooms, lighting or air conditioning. Thanks to the installation of sensors, these parameters can be controlled and controlled remotely, combining with other factors, e.g. when the conference starts, the lighting will automatically change and the blinds will be lowered. If the sensors register too high temperature or too little access to fresh air, air conditioning or ventilation will be activated. Automating these functions is not only practical and convenient, but also economical. By monitoring the office space and adjusting the parameters of individual rooms to the current needs of users, we can notice real savings – by lighting or heating only those rooms where employees are located or meetings are scheduled, we have a real impact on reducing bills and – what is recently extremely important – also on the condition the environment. Less energy consumption is closer to nature, and every modern company should attach great importance to ecology.
An intelligent office also allows you to use a number of amenities that allow for contactless operation of doors and many devices. Thanks to special magnetic cards, motion sensors and applications, employees can freely enter the parking lot, move around the office, confirm their participation in meetings and check the number of people in given rooms, minimizing contacts with other people. This is of particular importance now, when maintaining social distance and the sanitary regime may be decisive for the health of many people.
Videoconferencing instead of traditional meetings
Although videoconferencing was also very popular earlier, during the pandemic and the related need for remote work, they became part of the everyday life of many employees. This is a trend that has caught on well there, that he will probably stay with us for a long time, especially since maintaining large and expensive conference rooms, when they can be replaced with small huddle rooms, has become completely unprofitable. Thanks to the excellent sound and image quality offered by modern videoconferencing devices, each meeting, training, negotiation or brainstorming session will be held at the highest level.
