  1. A Guide to Wireless Presentation Devices

    A Guide to Wireless Presentation Devices

    There’s no denying the fact that when it comes to getting everyone connected quickly, nothing beats wireless. Cabled connections certainly still have their place as a backup or in certain rooms with static setups, but more and more people are embracing the flexibility of wireless connections in the workplace and the agility that they provide.

    The crux of the matter is that wireless connectivity really does save time and nowhere is this more evident in the meeting room than with wireless presentation devices. What looks like an ‘extra’ when speccing out a meeting room, fast becomes an essential, as teams see for themselves the difference it makes being able to share their content from almost any device.

    In this article, we’ll look at how wireless presentation devices work in practice and address some of the key stages involved in getting them up and running.

  6. What Are Meetings Really Costing Your Business?

    What Are Meetings Really Costing Your Business?

    Do you ever feel as though you’re sitting in more and more meetings?  You’re not alone. Many British workers are feeling overwhelmed by an increasing number of unnecessary meetings.

    Worst of all, there’s evidence that rather than helping your company to grow, meetings are actually costing the average SME £637,000 per annum. Sounds unbelievably high right? But when you break down the costs it adds up.

    The figure comes from research from PowWowNow which theorises that the average meeting consists of six people and costs £394.80; a figure made up of six people’s salaries, the cost of travel and time out of the office. By comparison, a similar conference call between the same six people would reportedly cost just £46.44. None of this even takes into account the cost of the physical office space and technology required.

    So, what can we do to press the reset button on business meetings, cut costs and up productivity?
