Need a Tech Refresh Before You Use Your Conference Rooms Again?

Today, conference rooms play a major role in bringing people together—whether they’re inside or outside your office walls. If they haven’t already, organizations are now discussing timelines for bringing workers back to the office (whether it’s fully in-office, a hybrid experience, or a mix).

As a result, you may return to rooms that no longer work for your teams—or encounter challenges as you get them up and running again.
