SES-imagotag (Euronext: SESL, FR0010282822), a specialist in digital solutions for physical commerce and global leader in connected digital price tags, and EZ Workspace, that develops innovative digital display solutions for offices, workstations and meeting rooms, are pleased to announce that they have won first place at the Innovation Trophy awards heldat the Workspace Expo 2017 trade show. They received the award for their new FlexOffice DISPLAY solution, the market’s first ever digital signage solution for offices and coworking spaces. This prestigious prize was awarded by a panel of experts made up of trade journalists and professionals from the workspace planning sector; it recognizes the innovation and relevance of the service provided by the new solution.
Ways of working have changed considerably with the advent of new technologies and most recently, the arrival of Generation Z employees in the workplace. Workers are no longer constrained by time and place and often collaborate in project mode. Businesses are therefore obliged to rethink their spaces in order to better meet these mobility and flexibility needs. The new FlexOffice DISPLAY solution has been designed to support businesses as they transform their organizational models around collaborative workspaces.
FlexOffice DISPLAY enables businesses to identify each workstation or office with a digital sign and manage their employees’ movements in real time and centrally. It provides an efficient alternative to conventional signs, cutting out the laborious task of manually updating these and the trips to different business sites that this entails. It means that each employee’s welcome is personalized, helping them re-occupy the space and facilitating interaction between teams.
The solution draws on a dual technological innovation, which is what makes this new application possible. The displays are battery-operated, neither network nor supply cables are necessary. The display technology used (e-Paper electronic ink) gives them at least 5 years’ autonomy. These also communicate with the server wirelessly, using secure, ultra-low power consumption radio communication which is completely independent of the business’s Wi-Fi network. It is thanks to this dual innovation that the FlexOffice DISPLAY solution offers autonomous, elegant electronic displays with paper-like legibility. Mounted on a simple support, they are extremely easy to install.
The software fully integrates into the existing infrastructure: it connects to the employee database, the main directories and calendars on the market (LDAP, Ms-Exchange, Google Apps, etc.), offers customizable displays (choice of fields, logos, photos, QR Codes, multiple templates, etc.) and manages the displays centrally and automatically. Furthermore, the solution has a platform for reserving workstations for employees, for more specific use in a coworking space.
The FlexOffice DISPLAY solution has been jointly developed by EZ Workspace and SES-imagotag. It is based on a tried and tested technology which has already been distributed widely by SES-imagotag in retail.
