Rise of Zoom in Workspaces

McKenna continues, “As a flexible, feature-rich, software-based solution, Zoom is the perfect complement to the digital workplace, enterprise networking and connected building solutions Black Box supplies and integrates into modern workspaces. Backed by Black Box’s renowned integration and support services, Zoom eases the transition to hybrid and in-person work while improving the overall communications experience for all participants.”
Zoom Rooms and Workspaces solutions are used around the world in board, conference, huddle and training rooms. They are also available in executive offices and classrooms to help users work together comfortably and effectively across spaces and devices, in the office environment. The solution supports virtual check-ins with Zoom Workspace Reservation; room status and scheduling displays content sharing through Zoom Digital Signage; and Zoom Rooms meeting management through personal mobile device or voice-activated controls.
Zoom Phone also enables users to make secure voice calls across the globe. For this, it uses a variety of supported devices with the same ease and familiarity as participating in Zoom video meetings.
