Why Qbic and Yarooms is Your Top Pick for a Sustainable Workplace

In today's business world, adopting sustainable practices is no longer optional —it's a vital necessity. As organizations respond to meeting ESG targets and evolving consumer preferences, the importance of implementing sustainable practices becomes increasingly apparent. McKinsey reports that a sustainability strategy is essential for laying the foundation for long-term investments. However, despite 90% of executives recognizing sustainability's importance, only 60% of organizations have a sustainability strategy in place.

Unlock the Potential of Smart Office Technology

The good news? Smart office technology offers a comprehensive solution for creating eco-friendly workplaces. By automating tasks, optimizing energy usage, and providing real-time data, smart office technology fosters a more intelligent, comfortable, and productive work environment for employees—all while reducing operational costs for companies. Achieving this requires not only cutting-edge software but also hardware designed with sustainable technologies in mind.

This article explores the challenges businesses face when creating a sustainable workplace and demonstrates how Yarooms' hybrid workplace management solution, coupled with Qbic's integrated smart panel PCs as meeting room displays, can help facilitate the transition. Our combined solutions reduce energy consumption and streamline operations, empowering businesses to create a first-rate smart office experience and meet sustainability goals.

Tackling Sustainability Challenges Head-On

Creating an environmentally conscious workplace requires meeting existing systems and practices head-on. The transition can be challenging, with several hurdles to overcome, including:

High Energy Consumption:

Outdated electronic devices often lack the newest and latest power-saving technologies, leading to increased utility costs, a larger carbon footprint, and operational inefficiency. According to LG’s publication on the life cycle carbon emission breakdown of digital signages, a notable 83% of emissions are produced while screens are in use. With solutions designed with sustainability in mind, Qbic’s devices can resolve these issues right out of the box as we use power-efficient processors and functionalities that promote power-saving practices, such as motion detection sensors that control display dimming when not in use. 

Inefficient Resource Usage:

Inefficient management of resources, including paper, lighting, heating, and cooling systems can add to a company's overall carbon footprint. Although many businesses have embraced digitalization by adopting solutions like digital signage, they also lack the ability to tap into comprehensive insights, such as the office’s space and resource usage. Collecting and analyzing data helps businesses stand out and excel in sustainability. Yarooms' management solution for hybrid and sustainable workplaces offers valuable insights into office space and resource utilization, supporting informed decision-making.

Employee Health and Productivity:

Overlooking employee health and productivity can result in lost profits and difficulties in retaining talent. Inefficient work processes can increase workloads, stress, and burnout, reducing productivity and raising healthcare costs for employees and employers alike. Smart office solutions should easily streamline processes and improve productivity, freeing employees from routine work. For example, companies can go paperless and help visitors complete sign-in forms three times faster with Yarooms’ digital reception assistant, made easy by the vibrant, interactive touchscreens and built-in NFC/RFID support in Qbic’s display panels.

Seamless Integration and Sustainability: Qbic and Yarooms Unite

A successful partnership seamlessly integrates two solutions, while an exceptional one fosters lasting operational and lifestyle transformations. Choosing the right solution from the outset is crucial for crafting a sustainable workplace.
