The radical shift in working conditions forced the enterprises to reshape the office spaces. The previous office designs included large conference rooms and accommodated more participants in a single go, but now the scenario has transformed. The offices have now redesigned the spaces into small and mid-sized meeting rooms like focus and huddle rooms suitable for hybrid meetings.
Hybrid meetings are catching the trend post-pandemic. There are challenging conditions to create a face-to-face meeting experience in hybrid meetings as the participants are present virtually and physically. Merging multiple video conferencing components cannot create an inclusive environment for the remote participants.
According to Frost and Sullivan’s survey, there are 33million huddle rooms, but less than 3% of them are equipped with video conferencing devices. Let us understand what prevents enterprises from enabling these spaces for video conferencing.
- Tedious installation process
- Dependency on IT Teams
- User-specific training
- Investment in accessories
- Lack of collaborative tools
