Agile working has become the new normal – at home, flexible desking or using collaboration tools.
But doing it properly requires a 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, chose Rendezvous meeting room scheduling software from NFS for its agile working transformation. Better space utilisation and improved staff collaboration were two key priorities.
In our new video, IDC General Manager Venu Reddy talks about why his company chose the Rendezvous solution.
“Because of the way we work, and the kind of analysts we have, we need to collaborate – and we need to work with different people and different requirements on different days, which means that you need flexibility,” he says.
“In addition, there is the reality of real estate space getting more expensive, so you want the utilisation to go up.”
These priorities meant IDC needed a partner they could work with, who would understand their needs and provide a flexible solution that could evolve with their needs.
In the new video, NFS Major Accounts Manager Shyam Bhardwaj describes how agile working constantly amends an organisation’s behaviour, creating new opportunities for collaboration and ways of using space.
The 3 most crucial elements of delivering a successful agile working transformation are:
* Partnership with your technology provider – agile working is a continuing journey!
* A mobile-ready platform – your staff view availability and book on the move via an app
* Flexibility to respond to changes in the agile working experience – your staff, technology integrations, and booking rules.
In the video, Shyam and IDC representatives explain how IDC are now using Rendezvous meeting room scheduling software to transform their daily business.
The secret of a success deployment, says Shyam, is listening to what the customer requires and being transparent about what can be delivered.
“Being totally honest with the customer and being able to deliver what we promise is the benefit for our customer,” he says.
