Companies from media agencies through software providers to Snapchat are planning a gradual return to their offices by the end of 2020 and beyond. The general consensus is to start with office occupancy of 30% and increase this percentage cautiously when the conditions allow. Companies are also introducing ‘work bubbles’ to prevent excessive mixing of staff within the business. This means that as we start using meeting rooms again, connectivity to remote workers will remain crucial. Relying on customised hardware and on-premise software is very limiting. Enterprises should consider a modern deployment of cloud solutions like Zoom Rooms. What is it and how to set it up in preparation for the much-awaited office return? Read on to find out.
Zoom into the basics
A “Zoom Room” takes all your favourite features of Zoom in your laptop, phone or desktop and turns standard hardware into a fully featured Zoom Video Conference Facility. Controlled with only a tablet on the table, you can join and schedule meetings with the touch of a button.
The platform is used not only by businesses but also by schools, universities and even music festivals which ran virtual 2020 editions due to the pandemic. Zoom Rooms extends the software into meeting huddle spaces, meeting rooms and even auditoriums with relative ease. The result is a seamless meeting experience for both attendees in the room and those remotely.
The benefits of Zoom Rooms
Zoom Rooms are great for all participants because they can enjoy:
- HD Audio and Video
- One-click functionality to join meetings and share content
- Integration with leading enterprise applications such as Office 365, Google, etc.
- Securely encrypted virtual meetings
- A consistent user experience, regardless of room size or hardware used
Zoom makes video conferencing easy as it has built-in functionality such as screen sharing, annotation, whiteboarding and recording.
