Get the Most Out of Your Video Conferencing Investment with Logitech Select
Add Deep Video Conferencing Expertise to Extend Your IT Capabilities
Today, IT teams are increasingly responsible for all aspects of video conferencing and meeting room management and expected to understand the intricate details of meeting room setup and management. And they’re tasked with keeping meeting rooms up and running. Downtime has consequences — for employee productivity, for business partnerships, and for customer engagements.
Over the years, we’ve heard from numerous Logitech customers about the challenges of managing their inventory of meeting rooms. These meeting rooms sometimes number in the hundreds or thousands, spread out over multiple offices around the world. We have also learned from the challenges we face in our own Logitech offices.
From these conversations with customers and our own experience, we understand that IT organizations face three big challenges when it comes to meeting rooms:
How to efficiently manage the entire video conferencing deployment
How to adjust to uncertainty regarding hybrid work and return to the office
How to ensure a good employee experience in every meeting
Let’s talk about how our comprehensive service plan, Logitech Select, can help you solve these challenges.
Managing a Complex Video Conferencing Deployment
Among the tactical challenges that IT teams deal with when managing video conferencing and meeting rooms are the following:
Troubleshooting in multi-vendor deployments is difficult and time-consuming
To avoid business disruption, downtime in meeting rooms must be resolved as quickly as possible
Without a service agreement in place, it can take time to get in touch with customer support and resolve an issue
Lack of visibility across locations and systems makes it hard to manage devices and know what’s going on without physically being onsite
- Replacing equipment that no longer functions can be costly and can lead to downtime
To solve these challenges, Logitech Select is designed to be an extension of your IT team. We offer a familiar support experience with 24/7 direct access to product and ecosystem experts, a single technical point of contact, fast product replacements, and premium software to minimize downtime proactively.
"We've been waiting for Logitech to provide this type of service. For us, it's a no-brainer, a minimum investment for the added value and ROI.”

Uncertainty Around Employee Needs and Office Attendance
One thing we can all agree on: There is still a lot of uncertainty around how we are going to work in the future, both short-term and long-term. It’s always been difficult to predict how many employees will be in the office on a given day, but the shift to hybrid work has added to the guesswork. Consequently, it’s also very difficult to predict meeting room needs or know how to invest for the future, due to:
Fluctuating office attendance
Inability to forecast when employees will return to the office in large numbers
Lack of visibility into current usage of equipment and space
Logitech Select includes advanced Sync insights and analytics.
Logitech Select can help through better understanding of how spaces and devices are used. Select includes advanced analytics through Sync to give IT teams better insight into details such as room usage and occupancy and trends over time. This allows IT to better allocate resources today and predict needs for tomorrow.
"We were considering adding an extra year warranty for our hardware. But since Logitech Select includes hardware replacements, the decision was obvious."

Ensuring a Good Employee Experience
Better predictions with respect to meeting room usage can serve another purpose: ensuring a better employee experience.
Meetings — both in person and virtual — are the locus for collaboration and decision-making. So meeting spaces must be available and operational when employees need them. This requirement applies to your small spaces and huddle rooms as much as your large conference rooms. Perhaps more, because huddle rooms are so frequently used for collaboration among members of distributed teams.
Ensuring uptime in huddle rooms is just as important as for larger rooms.
In short, to promote a great employee experience and effective collaboration, video conferencing in the office needs to work at all times – it’s mission-critical. Logitech Select can help you minimize downtime in all of your meeting rooms, or in specific high-priority rooms. Features such as 24/7 expert assistance, accelerated hardware replacement, and insights into room occupancy give you the tools to provide an exceptional employee experience in those all-important meetings.
"Our global UC team is under-resourced. Adding this service gives us the resources needed to keep our conference rooms operational and reduces our downtime."
