Historically, videoconferencing and collaboration technologies were largely reserved for the office, with executives, managers and some information workers using those tools to get face time with their far away shareholders, employees and customers.
Then 2020 happened, and suddenly, tools like Zoom and Microsoft Teams became household names with workers everywhere having to quickly learn the ins and outs of these new-to-them platforms. During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, we explored changing our virtual backgrounds, screen sharing and the other features of these platforms – many of us for the first time.
Since then, the collaboration and videoconferencing industry has exploded, with Zoom and Microsoft Teams reporting record growth as other players like Google Meet, Webex and GoTo Meeting making a strong case as well.
However, it wasn’t just the platforms themselves that saw the demand and innovated – it was also collaboration hardware manufacturers like Logitech, Poly, Barco, Sony, Bose, Sharp, Avocor, Samsung, Sennheiser and more that developed remote work solutions to meet the demands of a distributed workforce.
The collaboration industry is now bringing new features designed for hybrid work, making it seamless to transition from the home to the office. But still, the market is flooded with collaboration platforms and ancillary devices like cameras, microphones, headsets and more that can overwhelm the technology decision maker.
To help you develop your collaboration stack and adopt hybrid work solutions, we partnered with collaboration and audiovisual leader AVI-SPL on a regular podcast called “The Collaboration Space Podcast.” The episodes dive into topics that can help organizations create hybrid work policies and equip employees with everything they need to be productive – regardless of where they are.
The modern office is changing, so let My TechDecsisions, AVI-SPL and other office technology leaders help guide you along that path.
