Smart Office In A Box
Global smart offices are making enterprise tasks simpler through connectivity and collaboration. For SMEs and startups, unified smart office solutions offer integrated devices that eliminate long-standing challenges and change how people work.
India is fast becoming a land of opportunities for startups and SMEs (small and medium enterprises). Each year, 60,000 new businesses register in the country. These are poised to support India’s growth to a $5 trillion economy by 2025.
However, setting up a new business is not easy. There are unique ICT (information and communication technologies) challenges to deal with, such as managing multiple tech vendors, setting up devices, ensuring security and other CapEx-heavy tasks.
Initial setup costs for small businesses can turn out to be prohibitive, especially if the enterprise is not tech-ready. Luckily, the upcoming concept of ‘smart offices’ is altering workspace design to make offices tech-enabled and collaborative. By delivering efficient and employee-friendly solutions, smart offices can transform how modern enterprises conduct tasks. The popularity of smart offices is expected to drive the global smart office market to reach $58.62 billion by 2025.
The new ‘office-in-a-box’ phenomenon
Smart offices leverage the IoT (Internet of Things) and other modern technologies to create connected ecosystems that understand employee needs. Workers can easily connect devices and analyse data in real time, and remote workers can also get secure access to employee resources. By integrating voice, data, storage and app functionalities for enterprises, smart offices can fulfil the unique needs of startups. These serve equally well for small home offices, diverse branches and businesses that are upgrading from legacy technologies.
In simpler terms, smart offices are one-stop solutions for all communication and application needs of a business enterprise.
For modern enterprises, smart offices mean different things. For some, it may mean making desks smarter by providing assorted connectivity and shared app options. This leads to better space utilisation and occupancy understanding, especially for new enterprises where seating is limited. For others, smart offices cover the entire gamut of network connectivity and enable remote workers to collaborate seamlessly. They are given tools for easy remote conferencing and cloud-based project management. In other cases, entire workspace designs are revamped with voice-enabling and other IoT functionalities. This facility enables workers to multitask seamlessly and juggle shared services. In these ways, smart offices are changing the future of work.
While enterprises regularly promote modern offerings such as ergonomics, open floor work areas and cloud-based conferencing, the infrastructure that these features operate on is the unsung hero. Smart cybersecurity features also come under the purview of smart offices. Ensuring that employee devices remain secure and private while remotely connecting to the network is a critical concern. This is especially valid when IoT-enabled devices become the norm.
Smart desks, conference rooms, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems and devices are crucial for building a comfortable environment. Any feature that enables employees to be happier and more productive is beneficial, and smart offices play a vital role in generating satisfaction as well as security and reliability.
