Frank Weishaupt, CEO of Owl Labs says: “Business leaders across Europe are increasingly embracing hybrid work post-pandemic, with our recent State of Hybrid Work report revealing that 89% of business leaders across Europe plan on having a hybrid workforce post-pandemic. What’s more, 36% of European businesses are now investing in new communication tools and technology to help facilitate this permanent move to hybrid work. We are delighted to team up with Bechtle to meet this rapidly growing demand and make it easier for businesses and teams based in Europe to use Owl Labs’ collaboration technology to help maintain and facilitate clear and effective communication, no matter their location.”

Ascan Collier, Managing Director, Bechtle Logistik & Service says: “Workplaces are undergoing a profound transformation and businesses now require new tools to help accommodate the shift to hybrid working. As organisations adapt to new hybrid working policies, they must leverage new technology to ensure communication, collaboration and productivity are not compromised. As workplaces pivot to hybrid work and progressive policies, Owl Labs is a key partner to help our customers transform their workplaces to keep up with rapidly changing workplace policies.”

As hybrid work and remote teams become the norm, maintaining effective communication and collaboration between dispersed employees is of key importance to business leaders. The Meeting Owl Pro enables companies to achieve a seamless, collaborative and immersive team experience through its proprietary intelligent technology, which automatically focuses on who is speaking in a room using audio and visual cues from its high-definition 360° camera, as well as eight microphones and tri-speakers that have a pickup range of five meters.
