Equipping new hybrid workplace with multi-stream content collaboration tools
Oblong, Inc. (Nasdaq: OBLG) (“Oblong” or the “Company”), the award-winning maker of multi-stream collaboration solutions, today reported that its Mezzanine product has been selected by one of the world’s leading entertainment companies as part of a global initiative to ‘re-invent the meeting space’ in preparation for a return to office of more 8,000 employees.
“Mezzanine was selected to be part of a cutting-edge program to transform workspaces and, importantly, the style by which employees meet and work together within that space,” stated Pete Holst, Oblong CEO. “This customer has built an incredible global business founded on disruptive innovation and understands the importance of an engaging experience, one that our Mezzanine product is uniquely designed to provide.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Mezzanine has been deployed at corporate locations in Los Angeles and Los Gatos, Calif.
Holst continued, “Globally, the process of ‘returning to work’ is gradually beginning as employers and employees alike recognize the intangible value of gathering in a common space to collaborate, learn and connect. Increasingly, employees are being offered the opportunity to return to the office, often in a ‘hybrid’ capacity increasing the demand for innovative tools and technologies that support new ways to interact with multiple content streams. Staffing industry data confirms that an overwhelming majority of employers intend to have employees back in the office in the fall, albeit a return of all employees at the same time is very unlikely. The challenge for employers is providing a safe and technologically engaging environment for collaboration that supports a variety of team configurations both in and out of the office. Decidedly, vaccination rates, spacing constraints, state and local restrictions, scheduling and many other factors will influence the return, requiring flexible and scalable solutions that engage team members across different geographies and devices. Mezzanine provides an experience for uniting teams, increasing engagement and collaborating across multiple locations, regardless of what the new work environment looks like.”
