One in three employees worldwideLogitech UK Work Wins Research 2021 request better equipment for video conferencing. That’s why it’s crucial to optimize your office space to enable immersive, efficient hybrid collaboration. But knowing precisely how to do this can be a puzzle, with so many individual preferences amongst staff to consider and cater to. 

Logitech Room Solutions were designed to eliminate these issues, making the hybrid video conferencing experience seamless, simple and secure. Here are our top five tips for making the most of your set-up:

Standardize strategy with platform integration

With so many video conferencing platforms to choose from and different teams across your business favoring different ones, setting up a meeting can become complicated for those who don’t know what they’re doing.

Logitech can standardize your business’s video conferencing strategy, reducing the amount of troubleshooting required and minimizing the time it takes for employees to join or start a call. With pre-configured packages aligned with your chosen provider – whether that’s Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, or something else entirely – integrations and certifications are already established, ensuring that your new video conferencing solutions will always work in harmony with your video meeting provider.

Choose how you want to connect and control the meeting

With 57% of employees surveyed reported feeling anxious about being around people upon returning to the officeLogitech UK Work Wins Research 2021, making staff feel comfortable at the office is essential. And organizations can help to support employees in this changing work environment by providing options.

Touch controllers, like Logitech Tap, offer an easy, intuitive way to start and end meetings, while features like voice commands offer an alternative option for employees who feel less comfortable touching shared surfaces. Logitech has integrated with partners like Zoom Rooms and Alexa for Business to make meeting control easy with voice-activated commands.

Join any meeting from any room

As an IT leader, you’re no stranger to panicked calls and urgent tickets when staff can’t join meetings easily. That's why it's important to standardize the video collaboration experience.

Most businesses favor one video conferencing service over others, so meeting rooms may only be equipped for that service. But what happens when someone needs to join an external meeting or webinar on a different platform?
