Online Tech Shopping: When Savings Cost You Double

Raise your hand if you’ve said “I can get this cheaper on online” lately. We hear you, and our hands are up too. Who doesn’t love a good deal?

Meeting Rooms of the Future: Faster Decision-Making, Reduced Waste

How do you counter dwindling attention spans, connectivity snafus, tech glitches during crucial pitches, and collaboration where most business decisions happen: remotely? In a not-so-distant future, meeting rooms will use your staff and clients’ digital habit to your advantage, enabling faster decision-making, richer collaborations, instant access and payoff.
