People, space and technology drive the way we work.
Technology is in the driver’s seat in today’s hybrid workplace. Employees now have very different expectations, preferring a hybrid work schedule to support work/life balance. In order to attract and retain talent in an extremely competitive market, organizations are rethinking what hybrid means to them.
In a hybrid work model, the office serves as a hub for collaboration. Conferencing technology goes beyond the meeting room. Employees need to collaborate locally and with remote team members throughout the office with fixed and mobile technology to make every space a collaboration space.
With high quality collaborative room systems, remote participants can see and hear everyone as if they are in the same room. With the feature sets of Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and other platforms, participation and engagement has never been better, creating equitable experiences for all.
We serve as a consultative partner to help you integrate office technology. We look at hybrid office design holistically, integrating technology with furniture and architectural systems to create high performing collaborative environments.
We help you create the perfect collaborative workspaces and keep them running smoothly.
Experts in Technology + Space
What really separates us from other AV/IT integrator/consultants is that we are not just technology experts, but experts in space and its impact on organizations.
In a challenging, complex and competitive environment, we are all united by a common desire to anticipate the future and make thoughtful decisions.
The Bigger Picture
That is why our experts and our primary partner Steelcase, spend time analyzing trends and thinking about what lies ahead. We know that space shapes the behavior of employees, and behavior over time becomes the culture of an organization.
Space and technology are the second largest business expense after salaries and a critical strategic asset in driving an engaged workplace culture.
We specialize in creating collaborative workspaces that support people in doing their best work. Don’t you want to partner with someone who is thinking about the bigger picture?
Our Manufacturing Partners
We partner with more than 95 technology manufacturers, including Microsoft, Cisco, Zoom, Pexip, Poly, Logitech, and Crestron.
All Spaces are Now Video Spaces
Hybrid collaboration happens when people in the office are working with people who are remote. It’s complicated. what we know:
Think about the relationship between people, content, displays and cameras.
Acoustics are important.
Variables such as architecture, floor plan location and adjacencies have an impact.
Software and hardware are evolving constantly.
Right now, IT support is often necessary to make sure elements work together.
Hybrid collaboration takes place in settings traditionally designed for collaboration as well as social,
personal and learning spaces.
Teamwork may be scheduled or spontaneous. And, it helps to identify the type of collaboration being supported; informative (sharing), evaluative (feedback, reviews) and generative (solving problems, developing new ideas). Generative is the most difficult, yet the most critical because it drives innovation and growth.

How is Your Technology Working?
How We Think
As you think about adding or enhancing your existing collaborative workspaces, there is a lot to consider. Purchasing technology for your organization is a significant investment in time and resources, and needs to be well-thought out. There are a number of questions you should ask to discover the right solutions for you:
How is technology used in your organization?
- Is it for scheduled meetings?
- Impromptu collaboration?
- Displaying content?
- Company-wide news and announcements?
How effective is the technology you currently use?
- What capabilities would make your people more productive?
- What are you currently not able to achieve that you would like to?
- How long does it typically take your people to start a meeting?
- Is the user experience consistent, whether someone is working locally in an office or remote?
Do you use web or video conferencing?
- Do people typically meet face-to-face using displays to share content?
- What percentage of your workforce works remotely?
- How frequently are people looking to collaborate with others that are both local and remote?
- Do remote workers have a satisfying and productive user experience?
Do you have a standard platform across the organization?- Are you standardized on Microsoft, Zoom or Cisco?
- Do you instead use a mixed platform of solutions?
- Do you have challenges with the interoperability of a mix of conferencing applications and/or video conferencing systems?
What is your workplace culture?
Is your organization more “classic,” seeking practical, cost effective solutions that get the job done? -These solutions might include basic engineered systems.
Is your organization more progressive, seeking immersive technologies integrated holistically within the space to drive a creative and collaborative workplace culture? -These solutions might include open and enclosed spaces with bundled systems and all-in-one solutions.
Does your organization require integrated high-performance systems that provide the highest fidelity video and audio for local and remote participants? -These solutions might include integrated conferencing systems.
