Economic Networking Overhaul for a Modern Office
Logical Position, a digital marketing and SEO company, were looking for a cost-effective network update that would fit their modern open office space and growing needs.
Logical Position (LP) contacted Encompass Connect after another contractor struggled with the complexity of the project. LP’s large new office space needed conferencing, cabling, sound masking, and equipment repurposing from the old office – all to be done on time and on budget.
Asking the right questions to identify the solution
Encompass Connect came highly recommended and kicked off the project by working closely with the architects to understand how to leverage and match the existing infrastructure. The team also worked hand in hand with LP’s executives to gather end-user perspectives and support wellness in the workplace. “How many desks?” “How many lines for data and lines for phones?” “How are we managing floor locations?” were just some of the questions that allowed Encompass Connect to determine LP’s office needs, outfit meeting rooms and endpoints, and integrate workplace ecosystems.
High impact connectivity and ease of use
Encompass Connect rose to the challenge and designed and built a completely new network infrastructure with cost-effectiveness and ease-of-use in mind, providing functional alternatives to fit into LP’s budget constraints. Mark Higgason, Encompass Connect’s structured cabling expert and AVIXA's 2020 CTS Holder of the Year spearheaded the process to provide the best AV solutions for LP's needs. From high performance workstations and a multi-zone office sound system, to structured cabling and conference-room AV design, technology had to appropriately fit into rooms of differing sizes and configurations without overpowering the space.“We never tell the client they need something they don’t just to make the price higher. Encompass Connect’s flexibility with clients’ budgets and functional alternative offerings makes us second to none in the industry. We like to build long term relationships, not one night stands with our clients,” said Tim Pickett, President, Encompass Connect.
Taking the lead
A reliable company that takes the lead will always stand out, and Encompass Connect continues to shine. Instead of expecting LP’s owners to coordinate with multiple professionals to realize their vision, the Encompass Connect team served as one point of contact to the client, working closely with the General Contractor and directing all work from design to post installation services.
High-performance network ready to for tomorrow’s challenges
Today, Logical Position boasts a reliable, future-proof, high-performance network that not only fits perfectly into their beautiful modern office, but also seamlessly delivers against the pandemic-induced new normal of video conferencing and skyrocketing connectivity demand. “Networking and video conferencing are the most critical functions in any modern office nowadays,” explains Pickett.
“I certainly think that work-from-home technologies are going to dominate the conversation for some time. Video conferencing was the norm for corporate executives just three months ago and now it’s all about common household technology,” added Higgason.
