Technology22 – Reduce costs by optimising your meeting room efficiency

01 April 2024, by Matthew Peko-Fox

In times when efficiency and cost-effectiveness are more critical than ever, your organisation will increasingly be looking for ways to improve productivity and reduce costs. 

One key way of doing this is to transform your meeting spaces and methods of digital collaboration by optimising technology. 

Many businesses fail to take a holistic approach and instead implement piecemeal technology and tools that fail to deliver to their full potential that not only waste cost and resources, but also cause delays and frustration and reduce productivity.

Optimised technology results in…

  • Reduced AV spending thanks to physical changes, intelligent configuration and management, and the advantage of independent non-vendor-specified designs
  • Fewer demands on your office meeting rooms thanks to enhanced booking management and data insights that create options by reducing your real estate needs
  • Reduced travel costs for your teams thanks to reliable, quality online meeting options
  • Increased productivity thanks to your team being able to connect and collaborate whenever and wherever they need

We think differently. Here’s how…

TwentyTwo’s Technology22 virtual meeting room and AV consultancy services takes a very different, big-picture approach – an approach that’s underpinned by a deep understanding of technology, property and all other critical aspects that make hybrid, digital collaborations and meetings a seamless experience equal to face-to-face. 

We understand that optimising meeting room technology to provide high-quality virtual meetings is about much more than collaboration tools.

We understand…

  • The nuances of meeting room behaviour
  • The subtleties of non-verbal communication

We look at...

  • The physical environment such as acoustics and lighting
  • The IT infrastructure like licenses, calendars and networks
  • The AV hardware

And we consider training for your support staff so we leave you with a solution you can maintain with minimal input or support costs using best-in-class tools.

Matthew Peko-Fox, Chief Technology Strategist, says...

  • You can’t beat physics! No amount of technology can compensate for poor layout, acoustics or lighting
  • Do it well or it won’t be used! The solution needs to be user-friendly, reliable and function well or you won’t use them
  • Cost-effectiveness is key! Optimisation doesn't cost more. We have a proven track record of saving organisations money, time and frustration
