Technology has changed the relationship between the act of work and the place of work, allowing us to communicate and collaborate in ever more flexible and intuitive ways. Consumer technology has long enabled people to keep in touch on the move, to shop, organise their diaries and manage their finances all via their smartphones. Workspace technology has tended to lag behind the consumer revolution, but the balance is beginning to tip, as more and more organisations realise the power technology has to drive business performance.
By giving people more choices about how, where and when they work, collaboration technologies remove barriers to productivity, enabling teams to communicate, to share files and ideas regardless of the time or place. More intuitive tools also improve creativity and efficiency, as continual improvements in user experience make the technology a seamless extension of the individual, rather than a complicated system to be grappled with.
Bringing new, innovative technologies into the workplace does more than just boost productivity while driving down costs. Giving people access to the kinds of technology that they’re accustomed to using in their personal lives not only provides them with the tools they’re used to, enabling them to work more easily and effectively, it also makes them feel more engaged and connected, both to each other and to the environment that supports them.
At Claremont, we’re excited about the opportunities the latest technologies provide to help businesses to perform better. Our workspace technology newsletter showcases a cross-section of some of the latest solutions and ideas in the market.
New ideas keep you in business. That’s why teams everywhere hole up in meeting rooms to scribble on flip charts and paper the walls with sticky notes. The Span ideation system brings this proven process into the digital age. A panoramic projector provides an expansive virtual canvas where teams share and iterate ideas. Working in the cloud makes it easy for team members to contribute from their own devices. It’s collaboration for the digital generation – familiar, simple, flexible.
Span software draws upon the familiar tools teams already use to kick off their innovation process. Create notes, images and other content on your personal devices and contribute to the team canvas in the cloud.
