New Feature Deep Dive: Robust Workplace Solution for Enterprises
Watch the recording of our live-streaming event for a complete walk-through of all the new features and live demos!
Wayfinding: Easier Navigation, More Time Saved
Meeting rooms can be difficult to locate if they’re scattered across different floors, especially in a multi-floor or multi-building office setting. Employees can easily get lost and waste time checking rooms one by one. Good wayfinding design can help everyone better navigate their workspace and connect with the people and resources they need, whether they are office visitors, remote workers, or newcomers trying to fit into the new environment.
With the latest update of Yeastar Workplace, you can build a solid wayfinding system by creating wayfinders for meeting rooms. Once done, display the wayfinder on a digital signage (meeting room displays, touchscreen kiosks, large TV screens, etc.) and place the device in places like hallways and corridor intersections. This way, you will have directional signage at every key entry to point directions where people need the most.
The reception area is another ideal place to set up a wayfinding signage as visitors can refer to it for directions and navigate their way around after checking in.
Where to find it?
Enter the Admin Portal, you will see a new tab on the left navigation bar – Wayfinding. Here, you can create wayfinders for your meeting rooms. Enter room details such as Floor, Direction, Distance, etc., and the System will generate a link for you to convert your device into a wayfinding signage. Except for directions, employees can also check the upcoming schedules of each room and quickly locate available resources.
The new Wayfinding feature is available for Standard and Pro Plan. For more information about Wayfinding, please visit HERE.
Visitor Badge: Automatically Print as Guests Sign in
Visitor badges are ID badges for people who visit your office. With it, guests can be easily spotted among employees, and their reason for the visit can be quickly known without checking. Installing a visitor badge system can bring various benefits, such as enhancing office security, simplifying visitor management, etc.
Our Visitor Management System now supports visitor badge printing since this new update. It will help you create an even more seamless and automated visiting experience. Connect Yeastar Visitor Screen to your printer, and once guests sign in, their visitor badges will be automatically printed out in seconds. As the host, you may ask the receptionist colleague to print the badge in advance and give it to the guest upon arrival.
You don’t need to worry about the badge design as we’re offering you two templates in this new update (There’ll be more. Stay tuned!). You can decide on what kind of visitor information should appear on the badge, such as job title, name of the host, visiting time, etc.
Please note that automatic badge printing is available for Brother Printers at the moment, and you can visit HERE to learn how to set it up. You can opt for printing visitor badges manually if you use printers from other brands. Check HERE for more information.
Centrally Manage Multiple Branch Offices in One Place
Managing users, resources, and visitors for one office is simple, but doing it for both headquarters and branch offices at the same time can be quite tricky, especially when there are time zones involved.
We want to make things easier for our Yeastar Workplace users. By adding multiple buildings in the new “Location” tab, you can distinguish the system settings between each location, including language, time zone, and working hours. Each user can select their preferred office based on where they are, and only information relevant to the selected location will be shown to the user, such as the Office Map, resources, and schedules.
With a central platform, administrators can manage resources and bills more effectively. Staff members who frequently travel between offices can also use the platform to reserve a desk or meeting space so they can get to work as soon as they arrive.
