One of the worst things that can happen to a company office is for it to lag behind technologically. You never want your office to suffer a drop in sales or productivity because you have not equipped it with the most up to date and impressive technologically design and devices. There is no reason for your staff to have to suffer through outdated technology when there are a plethora of services that will come in and update your office. Here are three areas in the office that you should pay special attention to:
Add Video Conferencing Capabilities
You should set up video conferencing abilities for your staff. This will allow them to dialog with clients or customers face to face, which in many businesses is very important. It will allow you to set up large meetings while people are away from the office and no one will miss out on the visuals of a presentation. So, should a company want a demonstration of a PowerPoint presentation or something else visual, they can see it. This is a large advancement over something as antiquated as standard telephone conferencing,
Go Completely Wireless
The next step in the office redesign is to make everything as wireless as possible. There will always be things that need to be plugged in, such as power sources for computers and copy machines, but you can eliminate much of the unnecessary wires by getting devices that can be linked up wirelessly. So, choose devices that can be linked up wirelessly to others. So, ditch the wired printers and scanners and opt for items that can be connected without wires. This will allow you to freely move them about the office. So, instead of running long and cumbersome wires around the place, you can stack them up on one table in a corner and have the information beamed over to them unencumbered by wires or cables.
Rethink The Wifi Design
Lastly, consider a complete overhaul of the wifi design. You don't want to have your employees use data if they use cell phones for work. And it's not enough to have a wifi setup that can accommodate the printers and other devices, you want one that can take care of employees using their cell phones to conduct business. This is especially crucial in an office where employees rely on cell phones and constant contact with customers or clients (such as staffing or sales). The best way to ensure you have the proper service and don't have problems with blocked signals or dead spots is to bring in a team that is experienced in wifi design.
