LETTER FROM CEO AARON MCARDLE
It’s an exciting time for all of us, especially since companies are reopening their doors and employees are heading back to the office. And when they do come back to the workplace, they’re going to bring their new reliance on video conferencing solutions with them.

Will that be a problem? For some, no. But for most, employees are going to expect their meetings rooms to have the same video functionalities they’ve relied upon for the past year…so changes will be required.

Thankfully, every problem has a solution. And that solution is to make sure your meeting rooms are prepared for your employees’ new meeting expectations.

For example, how are your employees using video technology? Is it different than it was 15 months ago? Can your existing tech stack seamlessly handle Zoom, Webex and Teams meetings? Are your meeting rooms OK as is, and how do you know?

As you think about what’s next for your meeting rooms, know that we’re here to help. Whether a quick meeting room health check to get your room up and running or some dedicated time with our recently launched Tech Lab (more on this below), we want to make sure your meeting rooms are prepared for return to work.

Sincerely,

Aaron McArdle
CEO, RoomReady
