A guest appearance by “Intelligent Workspaces Lab” from AECOM & 3M GTG
Sedus will also be playing host to a particularly innovative collaboration for this year's Orgatec: the strategic workplace consultancy AECOM and the technology firm 3M GTG will be presenting their “Intelligent Workspaces” initiative. The partners work together to develop digital and physical workplace environments that foster more productive and effective collaboration.
In the “Intelligent Workspace Lab” on the Sedus stand, visitors will now have the opportunity to experience this initiative's work themselves in interactive fashion. Participants will be able to work together in short workshops devoted to “The productivity of meetings”. With the “Frame-it” technology concept they will be able to transfer their contributions from tablet computers to a large-format touch wall, in order that they can subsequently continue to sort, structure and refine their results in active group work. “Frame-it” also facilitates efforts to stay on schedule and achieve objectives while making the results available immediately in digital form. The practical experience and suggestions generated in this way are fed into the ongoing study, as well as into the continued development of the technological solution.
