A Mobile, Experiential Approach to Meetings
What: A mobile meeting hub helps both employees and visitors plan and keep track of meetings. This keeps team members engaged, on-time, and efficient by making collaboration easier.
Why: The modern workplace experience is evolving. Employees and guests on a smart campus won’t waste time and energy searching for meeting spaces, getting lost or getting their appointments mixed up. A comprehensive, always-on meeting system encourages collaboration across the organization and improves customer experience by making in-person connections instantly accessible.
40% of employees waste up to 30 minutes a day searching for meeting space.
Alexis Lively, Account Manager at Silcom Tech, has a schedule perpetually filled with meetings, both with clients and team members.
Today Alexis is meeting with David Visitus, Director of IT at FlexOps, at 10am. At 9:45 Alexis grabs coffee in the cafeteria when she gets a notification on her phone: “Quarterly Check-In Meeting with David Visitus starts at 10am. Tap here to be guided to your destination”. Alexis knows that David is receiving the same reminder at that exact moment and is probably on his way to their appointed conference room. She’s happy he can get turn-by-turn directions, since the “Steve Jobs” conference room is in an out of the way corner of campus.
At 11:30am, after her client meeting, Alexis is talking to Carrie A. Vision, CMO. Carrie is explaining that the marketing team is preparing a daring new campaign. “That sounds amazing!”, says Alexis. “I want to hear more about this new brand message so I can communicate it to my accounts. Let’s have a quick meeting to get on the same page”. Alexis takes out her phone, opens the Silcom Tech Campus App, taps the “Meet” tool, and immediately searches for a conference room that fulfills the following criteria:
- Accommodates two people
- Is available for the next 30 minutes
- Is located near Carrie’s office on the second floor
With another tap of a button, Alexis and Carrie have booked the space they need to collaborate, with absolutely no time wasted.
