Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has launched Modern Workspace, a conference room service built in association with technology and service providers.
With launch of Modern Workspace, HPE aims to expand conference room setups to simplify meeting arrangements and enhance employee collaboration by leveraging the Microsoft Skype Room Systems.
Microsoft Skype Room Systems creates an intuitive Microsoft Skype for Business meeting room experience – in conjunction with room management and audio/video accessories including those from EventBoard and Logitech.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Modern Workspace Services solution provides mobile reservation app, one-touch Skype Meeting join for in-room collaboration, indoor navigation powered by HPE Aruba Meridian, usage analytics, and automation to improve conference room utilization and decrease employee frustration from empty-but-reserved rooms.
“The new Skype Room Systems enables a complete Skype for Business meeting room experience in practically any meeting space with a display or projector,” said Giovanni Mezgec, general manager, Office Partner Marketing, Microsoft Corp.
“HPE Enterprise Services Modern Workspace optimizes meeting space utilization through detection of actual usage while enhancing worker productivity,” said Marshal Correia, vice president & general manager, Enterprise Services, Hewlett Packard Enterprise India.
HPE in its own conference rooms used Microsoft Skype Room Systems as a test bed for the Modern Workspace solution. HPE experienced 5-10 minutes of time savings per-meeting locating and reserving a meeting room for adhoc collaboration. Meetings started 75 percent faster with local and remote users claiming a richer audio, video, and content sharing experience.
