Agile working – at home, flexible desking or using collaboration tools – is the new normal.
But doing it right requires a whole new approach when it comes to staff engagement and technology support in key areas including mobile, sensors and digital signage.
International research firm IDC, based in Bangalore, India, recently chose Rendezvous meeting room scheduling software from NFS to support agile working. Better space utilisation and improved staff collaboration were their two key priorities.
In our new IDC video, IDC General Manager Venu Reddy explains why his company chose the Rendezvous solution.
“Because of the way IDC works, and the kind of analysts we have, we need to collaborate – and you need to work with different people and different requirements on different days, which means that you need flexibility,” he says.
“In addition to that, there’s the reality of real estate space getting more expensive so you want the utilisation to go up.”
It means IDC needed a partner they could work with, who would understand their requirements and provide a flexible solution that could evolve with their needs.
In the new video, NFS’ Major Accounts Manager Shyam Bharardwaj explains how agile working changes an organisation’s behaviour, creating new collaboration opportunities and ways of using space.
The 3 most important aspects of delivering a successful agile working transformation are:
* Partnership with the technology provider— agile working is a journey!
* A mobile ready platform — staff use an app to view availability and book on the move
* Flexibility to respond to changes in the agile working experience– staff, integrations, booking rules.
Shyam and representatives from IDC explain how IDC are now using Rendezvous meeting room scheduling software to transform their daily business.
The key to success, Shyam says, is listening to what the customer requires and being scrupulously transparent about what can be delivered.
“Being honest with the customer and being able to deliver what we promise is the benefit for our customer,” he says.
