The hybrid workplace is here to stay. Is your organization ready for it? You need to plan for more permanent remote workers, workers on a fluid in-office/at-home schedule, workers in the office every day, field teams across the country, and everything in between. You know they all need to be able to communicate and collaborate effectively, wherever they are. Your team has already embraced Microsoft Teams, and it’s improving productivity, collaboration and engagement. So what’s next?
Microsoft Teams Rooms reimagine the meeting room for all participants. They can transform any and all meeting spaces into rich, interactive experiences, helping ensure everyone can fully participate and collaborate from anywhere. Teams Rooms go beyond what can be done on personal devices by providing unique in-room capabilities, like one-touch join and content cameras to share physical whiteboards, and so much more.
To get the most out of the Teams Rooms experience, your in-office meeting spaces need to be carefully planned and configured. You need to choose and purchase the right hardware, connectivity and peripherals from a variety of manufacturers for each space. Plus install, maintain, monitor and update the systems and software in each room whether it’s an existing conference room, an open collaborative space, a personal office or a large multi-purpose room. Do you have the in-house expertise and bandwidth to accomplish this efficiently and cost-effectively? Probably not.
Then you should consider choosing a technology partner with conference room kit packages specifically designed for Microsoft Teams Rooms. A conference room kit package can bring collaboration technology solutions for Teams Rooms to your workspace for a monthly fee, helping your organization save time and money and avoid expensive mistakes.
Look for conference room kit packages best suited for your needs: What kind of spaces will you use Microsoft Teams Rooms in? Do you need a simple screen share in a conference room, white board collaboration in an open space, or an executive conference suite, complete with cameras, speakers and mics? You need an expert partner to help you select the right packages for your spaces, and not overload you with expensive bells and whistles you don’t need.
One easy monthly payment: Your technology partner should offer conference room kit packages in an as-a-Service model. That means that you are billed monthly, instead of incurring a large upfront capital expense. As-a-Service models are increasingly attractive to organizations because they can transform capital expense (CapEx) into more manageable monthly operating expense (OpEx), while avoiding the ownership and overhead hassles of costly hardware. Plus, you get the latest technology, and can return it or upgrade it when your contract term is over.
One stop shopping: All-in-one pre-configured conference room kit packages should include all of the hardware, software, peripherals and accessories for each space, chosen to make the most of the Teams Rooms experience for all participants.
Choose your installation option: Most technology partners will offer you a do-it-yourself or do-it for me option. If your internal IT and AV team has the bandwidth, expertise and tools to do this type of installation themselves, great. But you might want to avoid expensive installation surprises and let your technology partner handle the complete installation to get you up and running quickly.
Choosing the right conference room kit packages for your Microsoft Teams Rooms will give your team a first class meeting experience, whether they are in the room or across the country. And as more flexible working becomes the norm, it’s imperative that meeting collaboration supports everyone with the rich immersive experience that Microsoft Teams Rooms offers.
