Deploying Interactive Display Solutions for Enhanced Collaboration and Engagement

conferencing

The modern workspace is no longer confined to a single office. Surely, this is no news to you, but the rapid rise of remote work and hybrid teams has fundamentally changed how we collaborate. Effective communication and a sense of connection are crucial for team members scattered across different locations.

However, keeping everyone engaged and on the same page can be challenging. Businesses must implement the technology that enables their teams to succeed in this new landscape. Interactive display solutions are vital to this success. These innovative tools bridge the gap between physical and virtual workspaces, fostering a more collaborative and engaging work environment for everyone.

So What are Interactive Displays?

Interactive displays are essentially giant, high-resolution touchscreen TVs loaded with powerful features. These innovative displays allow multiple users to interact with content simultaneously, using fingers or styluses to draw, annotate, and manipulate information on the screen.

Think about brainstorming sessions where remote team members can contribute ideas in real time using a digital whiteboard. Or imagine a conference room where presentations come to life with interactive elements and polls that keep everyone engaged in the conversation. These are just a couple of examples of how interactive displays can enhance the way your team works.

Benefits of Interactive Displays

The examples above clearly show some benefits of utilizing interactive displays, but let’s dive into why your business should be looking at deploying them right now.

Enhanced Collaboration

For remote and hybrid teams, geographical barriers present a challenge to creating a truly collaborative environment. Interactive displays break those barriers down by facilitating real time interaction between in-person and remote participants. Features like screen sharing, digital whiteboard, and annotation tools allow everyone to contribute ideas seamlessly, regardless of location. 

Improved Engagement

Large, interactive displays hold people’s attention, keeping them focused on the topic instead of passively listening or struggling to make out details on a small screen. Interactive elements further provide the ability to manipulate content on the fly, so you can boost participation and make meetings or training sessions more dynamic.

Streamlined Communication

Interactive displays are multifaceted. They can be used for presentations, video conferencing, and content sharing, allowing you to eliminate the need for multiple devices and simplify your communication workflows. Even more, most displays integrate with popular communication platforms you already use, creating a smooth and familiar experience.

What to Consider When Deploying Interactive Displays

There’s a wide market of interactive displays out there, and figuring out the right solution for your company’s environment can be overwhelming. As experts at deploying interactive display solutions, we can help you implement the right solution for your team.

Here are some of the things we consider when working with our clients:

  • Needs Assessment: The first thing you want to do is identify your needs. What are your specific goals for new interactive displays? Are you looking to boost brainstorming sessions, improve video conferencing experiences, or create a more engaging training environment? Identifying your needs helps you choose displays with the right features and functionality.
  • Display Size and Features: What does your space look like? Consider the size of the room where the display will be used as well as how many people will be collaborating with it in that space. Once you have a size in mind, you’ll want to look at other features like resolution, touch sensitivity, and connectivity options to ensure your new display meets your needs.
  • Software Compatibility: Make sure the interactive display works seamlessly with the software and communication tools your team already uses. The last thing you want to do is invest in a display that doesn’t integrate with your current tech stack, causing more challenges for your team.
  • User-Friendliness: There’s always going to be some aspect of a learning curve with new technology, but try to choose a solution that is intuitive and easy for employees with varying technical skills to use.
  • Budget Flexibility: Costs for interactive displays vary as widely as the technology. It’s important to have a budget in mind, but flexibility is key. You’re investing in technology that enables better communication and collaboration as your company grows within this evolving landscape.

Andy and Ryan from TEC are a pleasure to work with. They are smart, responsive and explain any issues or solutions in terms that even a non-geek can understand. I cannot think of better people to work with when it comes to building security such as they installed in our 8 unit Condo.
