Making your workspace work better

This technology category encompasses all the usual AV requirements of the modern workplace; meeting rooms/video collaboration spaces, training rooms, boardrooms, huddle rooms, reception areas, break out areas, presentation spaces and corporate showcases. The difference is in the care and attention to detail the Ci Group bring to bear in pursuit of providing a better user experience, delivering technology that is fit for purpose, reliable, easy to operate, and sustainably supported.

There are also the extra wellness technology deliverables made possible through Ci’s exclusive partnership with Delos, including affordable wellness interventions that enable substantial gains in productivity and well-being. In addition, there are measures made available to improve a workplace’s mobile phone reception. This more complete workplace technology capability beyond AV is unique to the Ci Group.

What we do

Workplace Wellness Technology

Despite the continuing progress made by the Well building movement, most big city corporate workspaces are not optimised for wellness, whether equipped for defensive health measures or for positive enablement. The federal government currently advises indoor air quality, for example, continues to be the problem it was back in 1998 when CSIRO estimated the cost to the Australian economy could be as high as $12b.

Adding wellness technology to the repertoire is a natural extension of the Ci Group commitment to measuring the success of a workplace fit-out in human terms. It is also intended to be a game changer.  Rather than have wellness technologies just concentrate on new buildings, it can now be readily introduced retrospectively everywheremaking every workplace a suitable candidate. This enables the world to be made healthier one room, one floor or one workplace at a time. Such steps can also offer a handsome return on investment based on the human resources outcomes delivered.

Discover why wellness delivers the highest workplace return.

Builder project subcontracting

Large office fit-out projects come with their own set of challenges. Time frames frequently get compressed by unforeseen building delays, and by the time the site becomes available for AV fit off and installation the timeline is tight.

Typically such projects involve a number of stakeholders; architects or interior designers, AV consultants, project management companies and the builders ultimately appointed to the project. Each has expectations that need to be met.

The Ci Group is sensitive to the needs of the construction industry and can provide builders with some unique advantages. It offers, for example, additional workplace products that the builder can on sell to the client to increase revenue such as wellness and mobile recaption technologies. The Ci group also provides an estimating team able to respond to builder estimator’s requests promptly and highlight any foreseen difficulties.

Room remediation

Sometimes dealing with equipment alone is insufficient for a meeting or training room to succeed. What may be necessary are changes to the room itself such as acoustic treatment, lighting, cable routes, curtaining, or computer flooring. Custom furniture might also be necessary to achieve the best result. The Ci Group partners with specialist builders and furniture makers for the express purpose of room remediation.  Wellness intervention measures are also offered as they too can impact a room’s proficiency level. For select clients, the Ci Group can plan a meeting room from the ground up to be perfect, getting the screen size, camera angle, leg room, lighting, automation and all the other details necessary just right.

Meeting & Collaboration Tech

The Ci Group is across every brand of significance in the area of workplace collaboration and meeting room technologies. This is because many workplace clients will have established a brand preference and precedent that is sensible to standardise. Workplaces that adopt standard operating environments provide a collaborative infrastructure that is so much more efficient. Employees know what to expect moving from room to room. Changing brands in such situations comes at a cost. By keeping up with developments from all such brands on a continual basis, the Ci Group is able to ensure you are using the best technology to suit your purpose and budget.

Workplace Digital Signage Networks

Done right, workplace digital signage networks are able to reward your investment across a range of applications. They become a powerful means of communication for a variety of purposes such as brand messaging for visitors, brand messaging for employees, achievement dashboards for employees, and in wellness terms supportive of health initiatives, community building, digital art and more.  Workplace digital display networks can help you build a thriving workplace culture.

Direct view LED in the workplace

Already the most prestigious workplace projects in Australia are beginning to deploy direct view LED display in preference to LCD monitors. With LED display screen size becomes unlimited, thus enabling screens to better match the proportions of the room.

No workplace integrator in Australia is as well acquainted with LED display as the Ci Group. All the most difficult LED projects in Australia have been Ci Group installations for a reason. No one does LED installation and support better, regardless of the brand. 

Installation and support credentials in relation to LED are also important in the workplace context. It’s not just that a screen looks great now, but that it still looks great years down the track. Entrusting the Ci Group with your sizeable investment provides that reassurance.
