A popular trend for companies these days is the huddle room. Many businesses and properties managers have already moved toward implementing these spaces in their buildings, and the prevalence of the rooms is only increasing. The reason for this pattern is the flexibility they offer.
Flexibility is inherent in every aspect of the huddle room. Unlike most dedicated conference rooms and other work spaces, huddle rooms don’t need to be scheduled ahead of time. They are smaller, offering the dual benefit of bringing teammates into close quarters and reducing the space impact on companies who install them. They also offer the ability for teammates to simultaneously collaborate and share content with one another both locally and remotely. In short, huddle rooms have virtually no restrictions on how they can be used.
Not all huddle rooms are created equally. Some are merely small spaces with an old table and a few chairs. To get the maximum benefit out of a huddle room, it needs to have a few key pieces of technology and putting the right technology in the right space can have a tremendous impact. Although each room is unique, most of them share a few common components.
- Conference Phones
- Video Conferencing
- Flat Panel Display
The newest and best of these rooms also include BYOD (bring your own device) connectivity, meaning you can connect any device to the conference phones, video conferencing, or the flat panel display. The power of BYOD connectivity allows greater collaboration and ease of use.
Huddle rooms are definitely the direction the business world is trending in, but it’s important to go about it in the right way. The value of expert guidance cannot be overstated. Ultimately, it’s well worth the investment. The introduction of a huddle room boosts employee productivity, and the room itself has virtually no cost once it’s been set up. That’s a proposition that most businesses will gladly accept.
