Adding Collaboration to the Huddle Room

Understanding user needs and IT requirements for small enterprise meeting spaces

This is a time of significant change in the conferencing, collaboration and audio-visual world. Wainhouse Research (WR) has identified three of the key drivers behind these changes in how people meet and work together:

  1. People 
  2. Business Environment 
  3. Technology Advancements and Dependency

Unfortunately, the audio-visual estates within most organizations were designed to address the scheduled, formal, structured meeting requirements of yesterday. 

To address today’s needs, many organizations are looking to their smaller meeting rooms, which Wainhouse Research refers to as “huddle rooms.” 

This study, sponsored by cloud conferencing provider Zoom, provides information and insight into the functionality, IT, and user requirements for collaboration-enabling small meeting rooms.
