Logitech Launches Desk Booking Service Running on Logi Dock
Logitech just introduced a desk booking service that delivers a hot-desking experience for employees to manage shared desks across multiple locations. The service runs on Logi Dock Flex, a fully-featured managed docking station built for shared desks in flexible work environments.
With an 8-inch display, three USB ports in the front and three more in the back, Logi Dock Flex supports dual display, network connection and up to 100 watts of power, allowing for both secure, standard-issue device connections, as well as for employees to bring their own device. Employees can personalize their workstation with their own background photo and away message, and join meetings with one touch through calendar integrations with the Logi Tune app. And for ad-hoc booking, the interactive panel signals whether the desk is available or not.
IT teams can quickly install and deploy Logi Dock Flex at scale with secure cable management for clutter-free desk areas, according to the company. Through Logitech Sync, IT can monitor and manage Logi Dock Flex remotely to adjust booking settings, manage equipment and customize according to the company’s hybrid policies.
Logi Dock Flex’s multiservice capability allows IT teams to choose Microsoft Teams, Zoom Workspace Reservation or Logitech’s own desk booking service, with an additional choice of booking platforms to come. Logitech desk booking service is managed through Logitech Sync and can be deployed with either Logi Dock Flex or by using QR codes to work stand-alone, not requiring any purchase of Logitech hardware.
For facilities managers, real-time insights and analytics on space usage help them understand how flexible office and return-to-office policies are performing. Workplace management data like desk utilization, peak occupancy rates, and user behaviors take the guesswork out of usage and space planning.
Logi Dock Flex, offered in off-white, will be available globally in Fall 2023 through authorized sellers and on logitech.com with a price of $699. Logitech’s desk booking service is available for free, and can be requested today through the Sync management portal. Premium features like usage insights, alerts, and floor plan maps are free during the public beta through July 1, 2024.
