In addition, this type of analytical data is becoming increasingly valuable as many businesses begin assessing how to return to the office once the COVID-19 pandemic subsides and ensure they do so with increased employee productivity.

    “Our evolving workplace environment requires deeper analytics to inform smarter organizations, especially as we make the move from a home-based to a more hybrid workforce,” said Vince Jannelli, Associate VP, Software Product Management at Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “Synappx WorkSpaces provides the insights needed to determine the success of collaboration technology, helping organizations invest smarter, positively impact productivity and promote employee satisfaction.”

Its analytics provide alert notifications about factors that can impact employee productivity, such as temperature, humidity and air quality. It does this by combining data collected by the IoT sensor hub on the Windows collaboration display with data from Microsoft 365.

    Sharp previewed Synappx WorkSpaces at this year’s virtual InfoComm 2020 conference, taking home Best of Show honors from Sound & Video Contractor.
