- Thoughts on Signs on Workspace -
Coworking space is a flexible solution to adopt with modern workstyle. Private office, desk hotelling, hot desk.
People coming and going days and nights, how can a coworking space provider offer a place that user can call their own temporarily? Of course, put a sticker on the desk or paste a paper on the door, or simply tell them: ”your desk reserved is on the window side, the second desk starts from the left’
These ways might be economical in the short term, but in long term, it is a tremendous waste of resources (Either is labor or material)
Everything has to be presented on a paper, if the room schedule change frequently, the notes will be messy. Tremendous amount of labor are wasted on these daily chore: writing, finding, pasting and replacing.
Manual Labor Waste
It requires manpower to maintain, and facility staff can't put their energy into more productive, such as how to better explore and meet the needs of users. We should make space and bring value to people, not vice versa.
Outdated and old fashion of room and desk arrangement. Users also need to communicate with the facility staff to find a position to work. After all, they just want a proper place to work!!!
How about adopting digital signage? such as with iPad or Android Tablet, combining with a 3rd party room reserving software?
Switching from the old way of ‘pasting papers on the wall’ to use digital signs in order to communicate messages and provide visitors and tenants with helpful information. That’s a good idea, but that means:
– They have to train (additional cost) their staffs on how to use another room reserving system.
– Frequently Charge the digital signs from time to time, which means more labor to maintain.
– The complex electricity deployment might be another headache.
- Have E-ink Signages In Workspace -
Can anything be done with this? Or, is there an easier way?

- Benifits -
Well, you might ask, what difference does it make? Wasn’t it just no more than a sign on the door?
Actually the benefits are more than you thought.
- Easy to manage: The facility manager can easily arrange the room/desk resources, especially in the post-Covid-19 era, the social distancing rules need to be taken into account. An E-ink signage would be a good helper of that.
- Value Added: Bring more visibility into the workplace with desk booking signages and meeting room signs. Giving members the choice of where and how to work unlocks their full productivity potential.
- Streamline operations and cut costs: It’s a winning combination. Providing agility to members while reducing the whole maintenance fee. More effective space utilization keeps the balance sheet in check.
- Availability at a glance: Having desks and areas clearly labeled will enable members to find their proper space a moment’s notice. No need to check their email of where their desks are located, as the reservation information are all shows up on the screen. Optimize the work experience as much as possible.
- A space call their own: Even they just take a short break, they don’t need to worry about if their desk will be occupied. Empowered algility to your members to the maximum extend. Makes your members feel valued and included.
Better Experience: Visitors or tenants don’t need to ask the facility staff if the desk by the window or meeting room 3 was taken. As the availability information was on the nametag. Reduce unnecessary contact.

E Ink displays are referred to as “reflective displays.”
In an E Ink display, no backlight is used; rather, ambient light from the environment is reflected from the surface of the display back to your eyes. This attribute mimics traditional ink and paper, it will not distract people’s attention as other LED/LCD screen does.
You will only notice it when you need it.
