Last month we invited Lieven Bertier (Barco) to discuss talk about the next big trend in workplace. BYOM is gaining ground, and it is especially booming now with the pandemic. More than 500 people worldwide had registered for this free webinar. If you missed it, no worries, we noted down these key takeaways for you!

Let's talk acronyms

BYOM, just another acronym? No, not quite. It's actually a natural extension of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) in the workplace. And it’s a real opportunity for you to maximize the productivity of your workforce. BYOM enables you to turn your meeting rooms into collaborative spaces where on-site and remote colleagues are connected effortlessly and interactive, immersive meeting experiences take place.

With BYOM (Bring Your Own Meeting) you host a video conference from your own device, benefiting from the audio and video peripherals from the room you are in. Of course, using your preferred conferencing solution (e.g. Microsoft Teams, Webex, Zoom and many more). It can help you adopt a more huddle-like, unplanned way of working.


Turn on that video

In our 'Future of Meetings' research of end of 2019 we had already touched upon the importance of video and new tech trends for the meeting room. 88% of people prefer video in huddle spaces and prefer video to enhance collaboration. BYOM was already lurking.


With COVID-19 changes to economy, business and our ways of working are fortified. A digital transformation of 2 years occurred in only 2 months. The number of UC solution users boomed and this will greatly impact the workstyle when people are back in the office. Being used to using their own devices and their preferred solutions for remote meeting, this way of collaboration will be the new normal when returning to office spaces. Conferencing has been embraced widely, with a laptop as window to the world. Ease-of-use, simplicity in setting up videocalls, seamless connection between in-room and remote workers: BYOM and hybrid ways of meeting are so ready to enter the workspace at full speed. How can your company prepare for this change into secure, agnostic and ease-to-use workstyle?
