The Sync device management platform, developed by Logitech, has undergone a significant update. It was designed to suit the modern, hybrid workforce. IT can easily manage conference rooms and workstations from a single cloud-based interface thanks to Sync’s new support for personal collaboration devices including webcam, headphones, and docking stations.
The majority of workers (83%) desire a hybrid work environment in the future, and more than half of all knowledge workers globally work remotely. Hybrid work is good for employee satisfaction and productivity, but it also presents a number of challenges for IT professionals, such as an increase in remote help tickets, the need to equip employees for remote collaboration, and a gap between in-office and remote device administration and maintenance.
Collaboration technologies have made it possible for workers to maintain their productivity while working remotely as a result of the evolution of the workplace and how work is done today. However, even though millions of individuals work from home, IT personnel are either unable to see tech problems or have limited visibility into them. According to Loubna Imenchal, Head of Video Collaboration at Logitech AMECA, these are significant productivity issues that IT teams and the workforce as a whole must deal with today.

The end users can easily customize their Logitech webcams, headsets, and Logi Dock while IT can easily bulk enrol their whole fleet of workstations with Logi Tune, giving IT access into device status.
Sync greatly streamlines IT processes, relieving some of the difficulties in managing remote teams. IT managers can send firmware upgrades and activate new features to millions of personal collaboration devices as well as thousands of meeting rooms using a single web-based platform, preventing potential problems before they become trouble tickets and impede work. No matter which platform the IT team uses, Sync works across the most widely used cloud collaboration platforms, including Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Google Meet. As a result, the IT team has visibility across all of their devices.
Sync also offers useful information to assist IT administrators in making crucial data-driven choices, such as conference room occupancy. Analytics may help firms decide whether to restructure their office spaces to be more collaborative, downsize a huge area to a huddle room, or — for some — give up their physical real estate completely.
Logitech had seen an increase in sales last year because a surge in remote work. Now, with Sync’s abilities, Logitech will create an even more streamlined remote or hybrid work process for businesses.
