Managing A Split Workforce In The New Normal & How To Handle The New 'Socially Distanced' Office

As offices across the UK try to return to work and bring back their workforces, companies face a new two-fold challenge – how to manage a remote workforce and and streamline office space with half the normal occupants.

AVAST Solutions specialise in technological solutions to help solve these issues.

First let’s address the key technological solutions to the main issues

Remote workforce

Video conferencing provides the key to unlocking the remote workforce communication issue. Platforms like Zoom and MS Teams have been thrown into the laps of staff in a way they never had before. But as working from home becomes the new standard companies are faced with providing a professional video conferencing solution which passes muster with a client on the other end of the line, and for internal meetings alike.

In order to handle these requirements, there is only one hardware solution with the credentials to put your company name against…Crestron. Crestron has been the global market leader in professional video conferencing solution for years, and the Flex line of products work hand in hand with the two most common conferencing software platforms, Zoom and Microsoft Teams.

Built in speaker and microphone arrays make for crystal clear audio packaged into an easy-to-use interface which can be natively MS Teams or Zoom.

Enquire now to discuss how Crestron’s video conferencing solutions could perfectly fit your needs.

Social distancing in the workplace

The second requirement is arguably more difficult to achieve …how to monitor number of users of (an often open plan) office space in real time.

We have partnered with Density, a Californian start-up company who’s hardware is the perfect solution to monitoring the metrics of body counting in real-time.

Density’s sensors monitor entrants and exits over a vector (such as a doorway). The information is available in realtime to a dashboard and can be integrated with third party solutions using their open API.

Highlights include:

  • Aesthetic appearance 
  • Highly accurate monitoring
  • Realtime data delivery
  • Open API for advanced integration
  • Anonymous by design
