As part of a strategy to expand into other areas of workplace technology and services, Ricoh has launched new Meeting Room Services in partnership with meeting room booking specialist Condeco.
Part of Ricoh’s Workplace Services portfolio, the integrated package of consultancy, product delivery and support offers analysis of an organisation’s meeting space utilisation and advice on how it can be improved.
Typically, this includes changes to lay-outs and the introduction of Condeco booking and scheduling technology that can be used for everything from the booking of meeting rooms and the sending of invitations to the reservation of car parking spaces and catering.
Condeco solutions give managers oversight of room usage and enable employees to book meeting rooms (or hot desks) on the fly, manage noshows and begin/end a meeting by swiping their ID card or entering a PIN code at a touch screen in the room.
Other options include wireless sensors to track actual room utilisation and digital signage in reception areas so that visitors can see where a meeting is taking place.
