As remote working becomes the norm, an understanding of what it can and should cover is increasingly important as companies look to support dispersed teams and maximise competitive advantages. Employees do not necessarily know where they will spend their days, so the devices they use wherever they work should be able to meet any remote collaboration needs.
Clear audio, sharp video, wide mobile internet subscriptions or sophisticated collaboration platforms are not going to cut it alone, and the wide variety of devices, applications and other available support functions can be a minefield. The more comprehensive our knowledge of the remote working experience, the more satisfied and productive will our remote workers become.
“Flexibility and autonomy have become key motivators to modern professionals,” says Georgina Austin-Smith, Channel Manager Video/Collaboration EMEA North at Jabra, referring to the company’s global hybrid working research. “Today, 59% of all workers consider flexibility a better perk than salary, while three out of four already expect to be able to work from anywhere.”
Jabra has a long history of equipping users with professional UC-certified audio devices that allow them to collaborate from anywhere, further expanding this offering with a variety of video conferencing cameras designed to cater for personal and fixed meeting environments.
“We want to design high-quality tools for remote workers so that they can be productive,” Georgina Austin-Smith emphasises. ”As customers’ needs keep becoming more versatile, so must our ability to meet and even exceed them.”
One such example is the Jabra PanaCast 50, engineered to be the first new-normal-ready intelligent video bar. It goes without saying that PanaCast 50 provides an astounding audio experience. In addition, it enables a 180-degree field of view in Panoramic-4K, while an advanced on-device AI powers a range of additional intelligent features. While making remote meeting experiences more inclusive, PanaCast 50 helps make the use of offices and collaboration spaces both safer and more efficient.
