Sound masking is the newest technology aimed at limiting distracting background noises to improve the productivity of employees
When offices remodel their workspaces for sleek and modern layouts, employee productivity can take a hit. Offices that switch to trendy open floor layout can increase auditory distractions while reducing employee productivity.
Sound masking technology is the answer.
Sound masking technology dampens distracting noises around coworkers focused on their task at hand.
Companies can still choose to remodel their workspaces and install sound masking technology because this innovative technology doesn't need to be installed for a specific office layout.
Sound masking technology allows for continued collaboration and continued productivity.
One of the greatest benefits of sound masking technology is that it can be installed in virtually any indoor space, retailer, or working environment.
Coworkers can continue private conversations without distracting nearby coworkers hard at work. Customers can shop in peace without distractions around the store. Teams can continue collaborating in meeting rooms without bothering coworkers at nearby desks.
Businesses in virtually all markets can benefit from sound masking technology.
Businesses wanting sound masking technology do not have to remodel or completely renovate their existing space in order to benefit from sound masking technology. Wachter's Audiovisual Engineering team (WAVE) will meet with you to understand your challenges, pinpoint areas of auditory distractions in your location(s), and install the necessary sound masking devices.
One example of easy to install sound masking technology is through the use of emitters. Small, barely visible emitters (speakers) are connected by cables to a control module that can be housed in an equipment room within the business.
This allows for private conversations to continue without distracting coworkers focused on current tasks. Wachter can configure and install an array of sound masking technology that fits your needs.
Call center representatives of a Fortune 500 insurance company have one job — make hundreds of inbound calls to customers daily.
To make room for more call center representatives, the auto, home, and life insurance company converted a large vehicle bay into a regional inbound call center.
But maintaining excellent call quality with customers can be tricky when these call center representatives work in a space with poor acoustics.
To meet their needs of improving call quality while limiting background noises, Wachter installed sound masking technology.
