It was just months ago that we rolled out a state-of-the-art product that increased office safety and productivity, simplified hybrid work and turned working in the office into an experience, with interactive digital signages and rich maps. And all of this works on customers’ existing Cisco network infrastructure. After getting a taste of what Smart Workspaces had to offer, customers came up with requests for new features they would like to see integrated in the product. Top on that list, being a solution to simplify meetings and save time. 

Now, we’re happy to announce that we’ve worked on that solution and our new feature, Meeting Room Finder, is live.

Meeting Room Finder

You can now use the digital signage to locate an ideal meeting room on a 3D map, based on capacity, availability, location, collaboration equipment, etc. The Meeting Room Finder also shows you the fastest route to get there.

Let’s take a look at how this translates for employees and staff. Samantha works at an enterprise that offers better workplace experiences with Cisco Smart Workspaces.

Samantha is visiting the office for a meeting and is looking for the ideal room for her team. Here’s how she goes about it…

  • She looks up the 3D map of the floor on the digital signage & sees the closest available meeting rooms 
  • Based on the capacity, duration of availability, collaboration equipment & environmental factors like air quality and noise levels, she chooses the ideal room 
  • Samantha temporarily places the room on hold, from the digital signage. She can now walk over to the room & reserve the room on the Webex navigator
  • Paul, from her team enters the building. He types in the name of the room on the signage, locates it on the 3D map & makes his way to the meeting
