Collaboration Concierge: Together We Can Change the Future of Work

At Merge, we have assisted businesses in developing and implementing video conferencing and collaboration solutions for almost a decade. During this time, we have gained unrivalled expertise in how people and technology can effectively work together.

Until now, our knowledge has been limited by resources and geographical constraints. However, our newly developed platform encodes all of our experience into an AI concierge, enabling us to be a true extension of your team, regardless of your location.

Our Collaboration Concierge understands the subtleties in each and every room, and combines our vast institutional knowledge with an understanding of how your unique teams, workflows and technology come together to deliver hyper-personalised and instant support, right into the hands of people in the room.

It works with end users to fill knowledge gaps, troubleshoot issues and even reboot systems when issues arise, saving time that would otherwise be spent waiting in queues. If the fault cannot be rectified, it will suggest an alternative room and automatically log a ticket with the service desk.

While others see rooms, we see opportunities. And through our concierge, we'll help you realise the full potential of every collaboration touchpoint, all with data-backed optimisation recommendations.

If we can help with your workplace technology and collaboration journey please reach out to speak to one of our friendly team members.

Stay tuned as we continue to push the boundaries of collaboration innovation, empowering teams to thrive in the digital age!
