Mind the digital skills gap
The study goes on to reveal that presentation technology problems form the most common requests for IT assistance (67%). This is closely followed by internet connection issues (59%), printer issues (55%), mobile device problems (47%), and software issues (41%). See Figure 1 at right
IT professionals share that the top three issues requiring their support are: connecting hardware (67%), operating meeting or presentation software (58%), and joining web conference meetings (57%). Another growing challenge is the BYOD trend: trouble connecting personal devices that employees and visitors bring to meetings (laptops, tablets and mobile phones).
Finding an intuitive solution to collaboration
Often viewed as functional elements within organizations, IT departments should endeavor to understand employees’ approaches to using technology. Because today’s technologies are often overly complex, there needs to be a concerted effort by decision-makers to simplify company IT, particularly when it comes to presentations. By installing user-intuitive technology, the IT team can provide solutions to the business which drives greater productivity through all departments.
Barco has invested its vast technology know-how into creating wireless presentation solutions that enhance collaboration across the enterprise. Stay tuned for our next blog post, which reveals our path toward developing meeting room solutions that help improve decision-making across the enterprise, from huddle spaces to the executive boardroom.
About the study
