How Crestron meets the challenges of the modern workplace
We all know the workplace has changed dramatically: a dispersed workforce; open floor plans; AV on the network; and reliance on mobile devices – not just to communicate but to present and collaborate, as well. With these innovations come new challenges: how to find and book available meeting spaces; how to start a meeting and use the technology; how to provide a consistent user experience in every space; how to authenticate users, devices, and data to ensure network security; how to deploy and manage more technology in more spaces and locations; and how to support the many different platforms and services employees and guests have on their personal devices.
Crestron and InSight Systems have you covered. Our ready-to-deploy meeting spaces make it easy to deliver consistent meeting, presentation, and conferencing experiences on a large scale. Built for the enterprise, Crestron room solutions offer cloud-based provisioning and management, and support standard network security policies. Crestron Fusion ® monitoring and scheduling software adds a layer of intelligence to maximize system uptime, and optimize device and room usage.
Find and book the right meeting space
One of the most common challenges in the workplace is simply finding the right meeting space. With a direct connection to the most popular enterprise calendaring platforms, Crestron makes it simple and convenient to locate and book available meeting spaces from down the hallway, outside the room, inside the room, or on the Crestron PinPoint ™ app running on your Apple ® iOS ® or Android ™ device. Using Crestron PinPoint, you can quickly find the right space for your meeting based on availability, proximity, seating capacity, and technology capabilities.
