In offices today, where there are lots of meetings with people coming in, going out, visitors arriving and employees who hot-desk, being able to understand which meeting rooms and desks are available at what time is extremely important. There’s nothing quite like welcoming an important guest, walking them to the meeting room you believe you reserved, only to find someone else is already in there. Or walking in to find someone has already set up to work from the desk you usually use.
Your visitors may form a poor opinion of your company if meeting rooms aren’t available or meetings don’t start when they’re supposed to.
Even if you already have meeting room booking software, if there’s nothing by the meeting room or desk to say who has booked the space and when for, there will still be the temptation to assume an empty room is available, even if it’s due to be used in only a couple of minutes time
To eliminate double booking and reduce frustrationamong staff and visitors the need for clear, real-time room information outside the meeting room or at the desk is essential.
Paper and digital signs
Paper based signage is time consuming to produce, expensive to print and takes time for someone to physically walk round, replacing each sign. By the time changes have been made, they could be out of date. Existing digital office and tablet-based signage need mains power and can be expensive to buy, install, run and maintain.

e- Paper or e-Ink as it’s also known is this the same technology that exists in an Amazon Kindle. Available in a range of sizes, our screens which do not need mains power are easy to read from any angle- even in direct sunlight. Whilst the screen remains static it requires no power whatsoever, so only when the screen is being updated does it require battery powerand network connectivity, making our screens incredibly power efficient and low cost to run.
Our signs offer flexible connectivity options and can be connected via WiFi, mobile networks and LPWAN (LoRa). Where existing connectivity such as WiFi is already in place, if there's enough capacity we’ll connect to that.
Where there is no existing connectivity, we will supply it. We are specialists in installing LPWAN (LoRa).
Our Giosprite LPWAN is a cost-effective wireless telecommunication wide area network designed to allow long range communications at a low bit rate among connected devices, so it’s perfect for transferring dataacross to our e-paper signs, especially in buildings where WiFi coverage is difficult.
With lower power requirements, longer ranges and lower costs than traditional mobile networks,CountiNet offers much lower upfront capital expenditure and lower operating costs – so rolling out cost effective meeting space signage is definitely a reality.
With calendar app (e.g. Google Calendar) and meeting room booking system integrations available, you can display room availability in real time so employees and visitors know exactly which rooms are available and when - so reducing the incidence of double booking. The fully customisable black and white display allows you to show details including room name, company logo, current and next meetings booked, meeting duration, daily meeting room calendar and room availability.
With the flexibility to quickly and easily mount the screens anywhere in your building – without the need for wires or mains power - you can create connected work and meeting spaces, fast.
