- Background -
With the development of technology, more and more devices play an important role in our workplace, which lie in their practicality. As we all know, the meeting room is a place where we solve the problem or negotiate some details about one project. Therefore, it is essential to manage the room resource well, thereby having our affairs arranged smoothly.
- The Introduction of RELAIS & CHATEAUX -
RELAIS & CHATEAUX is founded in 1954, which provides a delicate meal, careful customer service and pleasant hotel environment for tourists. The group currently has about 580 members in 68 countries on five continents, like Japan, America, China, and so on. It uses these five words “ Character, Courtesy, Calm, Charm and Cuisine ” as the group’s traditional “five C” motto.
- Challenge -
Imagine that you have the emergent issue to hold a meeting but you don’t reserve the meeting room in advance and you don’t have time to search for the room. Under this situation, the procedure might be delayed and the work efficiency of your whole team will be affected.
Pierre, the IT director of RELAIS & CHATEAUX, is encountering this difficulty presently: For the privacy concern, the wall of their meeting room is not transparent glass made, which means, the people outside the room, will need to literally walk into the room, to know if the room was occupied. This cause several awkward interruptions from time to time.
Meanwhile, they didn’t plan to furnish the office thoroughly, so complex electricity deployment will not be an ideal choice. If they chose the kind of room signage (Android tablet/iPad) that needs the power supply, it is very costly, complicated as well as wastes much time.
Thus he was trying to find a room signage that can:
- Sync the current room status and show the future events.
- Integrate with existing calendars
- Wireless installation
Finally, he has found SyncSign.
- About SyncSign -

- How a Syncsign Display Solves the Problem -
They have installed a 2.9-Inch SyncSign as you can see in the picture: it just is stuck on the glass door.
After the easy setup, staffs could know the real-time status of room from the screen, like the following picture (the screen displays “ libre”)
In addition, if there is a change, the information on the screen will be updated simultaneously.
What benefits does SyncSign bring to people?
- The Advantages of SyncSign -
