DisplayNote facilitates hybrid working at architectural engineering company
DisplayNote technology has been implemented by Kluber Architects + Engineers at its new headquarters building in Chicago, Illinois.

The 30-strong team of architects and engineers uses Launcher to facilitate hybrid working and remote communication for client projects that range across public, education, health services, and the private sector applications.

The company relocated to its new headquarters in Autumn 2021 with the move prompting a simultaneous upgrade to all internal meeting spaces. This process was seen as an opportunity to meet the needs of an increasingly hybrid workforce and to provide tools to facilitate an increase in remote meetings with clients. With a heavy reliance on video conferencing for their daily communications it was essential for the company to have a simple, reliable way for staff to connect to calls with clients and colleagues.

“We have weekly meetings for the different departments, so we rely on a variety of video-conferencing tools as some people are in the office while others are at home,” Joel Murphy, project technologist at Kluber Architects + Engineers. “We wanted a solution that would get the most out of their meeting spaces without the need to purchase additional hardware. 

We trialled Launcher, and it was exactly what we wanted: to walk into the space to start meetings and schedule meetings. It’s really simple to just launch the meeting; touch the button, and the call starts.”

Launcher facilitates smooth integration between MS Outlook and Teams and adds the convenience of staff not having to bring their own laptops into meetings. In addition to pre-scheduled meetings, Launcher has also led to a change in how the teams collaborate. Smaller, informal meetings are starting to happen at the big screens rather than around a desk, as the teams benefit from being able to view documents like blueprints on the big screen.

Having initially installed the product in two meeting rooms, Launcher has now been added into another huddle room.
