Better collaboration and space utilisation: IDC explains why it chose Rendezvous meeting room scheduling software

Agile working has become the new normal throughout Australia, New Zealand and the rest of the world – at home, flexible desking or using collaboration tools.

But doing it right requires a new approach when it comes to staff engagement and technology support in key areas including mobile, sensors and digital signage.

International research firm IDC, based in India, chose Rendezvous meeting room scheduling software from NFS to support its agile working analysts in their work. Better space utilisation and improved staff collaboration were also key priorities.

In our new video, IDC’s General Manager Venu Reddy explains why his discerning company chose the Rendezvous solution.

“Because of the way we work, and the kind of analysts we have, we need to collaborate – and we need to work with different people and different requirements on different days, which means that you need flexibility,” he said.

“In addition, there’s the reality of real estate space getting more expensive, and so you want the utilisation to go up.”

These requirements meant IDC needed a partner they could really work with, who would understand their needs and provide a flexible solution that evolves with their needs.

In the latest video, NFS’ Major Accounts Manager Shyam Bhardwaj shows how agile working constantly alters an organisation’s behaviour, creating new collaboration opportunities and ways of using space.

The 3 most important elements of delivering a successful agile working transformation are:

* Partnership with your technology provider – agile working is always a continuing journey!

* A mobile ready platform – your staff view availability and book on the move via an app

* Flexibility to respond to any changes in the agile working experience– staff, integrations of technology, and booking rules.

Shyam and IDC representatives explain in the video how the research company is now using Rendezvous meeting room scheduling software to transform their daily business.

The key to sustainable success, says Shyam, is listening to what the customer requires and being transparent about what can be delivered.

“Being completely honest with the customer and being able to deliver what we promise is the benefit for our customer,” he says.
