A Look Into The Rise of Huddle Rooms
As the world progresses at a high rate due to technology, we must constantly evaluate practices of the past to see whether they hold up in today’s world.
Video conferencing is no different in this regard, with advancing technologies coming out every few years it’s sometimes hard to keep up.
Legacy Meeting Rooms of the past and present are very basic in their design. They can only fit a certain amount of people in at the same time, are restricted by aging technologies and in the end, are very expensive to maintain.
This is where Huddle Rooms are on the rise in the workplace, providing a cheap alternative for quick and easy collaborations. Viju provide an insight into this global transition and ways it may benefit you to adopt.
Moving On From Legacy Meeting Rooms
Some businesses will most likely still use these meeting rooms. Aging, expensive rooms that don’t have the up to date technology to provide a meaningful collaboration in today’s world. Where every employee has ways of sharing and offering their opinion and having to deal with new, important tasks day in and day out.
As your company grows, you’ll naturally acquire more and more employees with an ever growing workload. This will stress the limits of your meeting room to its maximum and without change it’ll become stressed to breaking point.
If you’re a startup company with very little resources at hand and a small team or several then maybe a full on legacy meeting room isn’t for you. You’ll need to explore other avenues to collaborate with each other, especially important in the early months and years of your business. Hubble Rooms are perfect for that situation,especially with a small amount of space that you’ll likely have when starting out.
Just What Do Huddle Rooms Provide?
Huddle Rooms provide a small meeting room for six or less, flying under the radar of the main IT teams. Much less formal and expensive than a main meeting room, a Huddle Room allows collaboration between a small team on an ad-hoc basis.
Some of these huddle rooms use conferencing software but the large majority choose to stick to a small amount of requirements such to allow a quick and easy get together. Best suited for less formal, highly collaborative work sessions that occur every day in the office in several departments. It just doesn’t work with typical legacy meeting room, which would require advanced booking and planning. Some tasks that daily occur don’t have forward planning involved and must be attended to immediately, Huddle Rooms are a perfect fit for that.
Not all businesses choose to use a bare bones huddle room, some adapt and require some form of conferencing technology. Make it a great choice for an in between before committing to a fully functional video conferencing room.
Some form of AV (Audio Visual) conferencing that will further help collaboration between colleagues is advisable in a huddle room. Being able to place basic calls or bringing in some form of webcam to allow video conferencing through several devices.
Presentation and sharing of content is always vital in a meeting, without such things not much would get done. Such as supporting wireless content sharing and wired alternatives with a shared in-room display with a PC or mobile. Bringing your own device to these huddle rooms is what makes the gathering quick and efficient with far less setup time than other methods.
In summary, huddle rooms are on the rise in some sectors and whether they’re right for your business depends on several factors. Evaluating if they’re a good direction for you is the first step.
