Last week, we launched our new showroom to exhibit our smart solutions at Clerkenwell Design Week - the UK’s leading independent design festival. Having taken place over three days, the event attracted designers and industry workers from around the world to discover new topics and trends within the sector.
As experts in workplace experience, we hosted an innovation centre dedicated to modern workplace technologies that contribute to designing spaces efficiently, whilst keeping employee needs at the forefront to make workflows even easier in a time where flexibility at work is key.
Over all three days, the showroom was open to showcase our well-designed products to help transform workplaces with smarter solutions. However, our events also included two panel discussions about the future of work – led by industry experts in design, workplace experience and facilities management, as well as book signings by our guest speaker, Simone Fenton-Jarvis, author of ‘The Human-Centric Workplace’. We even held an evening of entertainment with DJs, drinks and food on day two – where guests enjoyed networking and a variety of music to suit all tastes – before winding down on day three to provide further visitors with information.

1. Multi-purpose smart lockers
Our hybrid Lockers combine quality manufacturing, intelligent design and a cloud-based platform that supports multiple workflows. They minimize the need for multiple locker banks, saving space and cost.
The smart locker platform is also designed to integrate with existing smart locks where customers have a mixed estate of different locker types. Vpod Hybrid Lockers are a flexible, complete solution that can be bespoke to meet an organisation’s needs.
2. Vgreet virtual reception
Vgreet is the key to a connected workplace. It welcomes visitors and guests to a building and makes their visit easy, leaving them with a great first impression. Vgreet streamlines the entire process and cuts complexities. It can free up reception staff and provides assistance when there isn’t any and even replace staff where necessary.
3. Dialog video concierge
Dialog is a unique video call routing platform that works similarly to audio contact centre systems where native video calls can be routed in the same fast and convenient way as audio.
Dialog allows organisations to centralise key functions such as reception, help desk, security, and other face-to-face functions. With videos being routed to a specific department, it puts users in a queue if no one is available, forwards calls, allows users to be placed on hold, transferred and adds others on the fly.
4. Audio visual solution
From arriving at reception and being welcomed by Vgreet, to booking a multi-purpose smart locker that stores your personal belongings, to getting a wayfinding map to find your meeting room. Our Audio Visual Systems are designed and built with “one” purpose that fits into the whole workplace experience - to meet and exceed your business requirements. Our systems provide better collaboration, utilise unified transformative technologies and future-proof secure digital workplaces.
We want to say a massive THANK YOU to all the partners, visitors, and the team who made everything possible! It was a pleasure speaking to you all, and we look forward to more opportunities like this where we can thrive through collaboration and sharing industry knowledge.
