What kind of audio-visual set up does your commercial space have? If you’re relying on outdated items, it could be holding you back.
The right audio-visual setup, on the other hand, can be a boon to your client relationships, increase productivity among your staff, and generally improve your systems in an increasingly digital world.
You should absolutely assess the current state of your commercial office's use of audio-visual equipment and see where you can improve. If any of these scenarios sound familiar, it’s time to rethink your setup.
It’s Too Complicated
How many times have you tried to hold a meeting but were unable to figure out how to hook up your digital assets to a display? Or how many conference calls were delayed because no one could remember which button connects? If employees have to call an IT department continually, everyone's less productive. Instead, look for systems that are intuitive and easy for anyone to understand.
When your commercial office is having a group meeting, do you have a wireless method of sharing so that everyone can share their content? Make sure that the sharing of ideas is facilitated to increase employee satisfaction and productivity.
It’s Not Broken Down Into Zones
If people are hanging out in a shared space listening to music, is it played at the same level in your conference rooms? You need to separate out different zones within your commercial space so that each allows for a different activity.

You know that its essential for your employees to collaborate on new ideas, but do you give them the physical space to do so?
Collaboration won’t just happen through your email network, chat interface, or over the phone; for success, you’ll want employees to be able to work out their ideas in real-time and in-person. That’s where a huddle space can help facilitate teamwork.
Unlike a traditional conference room, your commercial office's huddle space should be dedicated to employee collaboration and should be comfortable and inviting enough to support the growth of new ideas. If you’re trying to encourage employees to become a closer-knit team, consider these four additional benefits of a common huddle space.
If your commercial office layout is open, your employees won't always have the privacy or space to focus on smaller projects together; imagine trying to hold a board meeting at Starbucks! A huddle room or rooms is a space where small groups of employees can get together to hash out ideas without the distractions of others.
Why crowd everyone around one computer screen at your desk or lose the intimacy of your small group in a large conference room? A huddle space should have a digital display so your employees can share their ideas with the click of a button, and other elements like a whiteboard to facilitate spontaneous idea generation.
With several huddle spaces in your office, employees won’t need to worry about booking a busy conference room in order to have a quick brainstorming session.
Outfitting a conference room can be a significant expense, as you’re creating a space that will be suitable for everything from board meetings to client presentations. Often, that means that conference rooms are larger and more formal – meaning more expense. Because huddle rooms are a fraction of the size of traditional conference rooms, you can actually add several to your space for less than the cost of one new conference room.
