"Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships."
– Michael Jordan

When talented employees collaborate with the latest technology, the result is game-changing. This merging of innovation and human effort is where your team’s journey begins.

Steelcase® technology blends into your daily routine on an individual and team level. It intuitively navigates you through everyday challenges and makes your company a modern success.

Constant Collaboration & Communication Is Key

Steelcase aids businesses of today in designing their game plans with the latest work trends in mind. The secret is to equip your offices with tools engineered for collaboration:

  • Bring people, furniture, and space information together with media:scape. Know who is using what, where, and when.
  • Pass the information to your teammate to score a goal at your next meeting with Virtual Puck.
  • Transform your presentation from work into an art form with Surface Hub 2 and WOW! upper management.


Get inspired and discover the collaboration-enhancing design possibilities.

Meetings Made Easy

Whether your office has five (5) or fifty (50) rooms, scheduling meetings and locations is easier than checking the weather.

  • Book a room by walking into it. Auto Book & Auto Release with Workspace Advisor has automated, sensory technology to reserve and release a room when you enter and leave it. Not a single “click” necessary!
  • Step aside Harry Potter’s Marauder’s Map. See the real-time availability of a room or workspace with the Steelcase Live Map like real magic.
  • Find the right place and time that suits the needs of all your team members with the Steelcase Find App. Narrow down the availability and location to schedule a meeting convenient for everyone.
  • Connected spaces have never been easier to reserve than with RoomWizard. Use the app to see times and availability and bada bing! You have a meeting scheduled.

ProTip: These features of integrated technology work exceptionally well (and look fantastic) with modern, easy to install glass walls.

Analyze The Effectiveness of Your Workplace

From budgets to social media impressions, you measure your business’ entire journey toward success. Steelcase technology taps into the use and effectiveness of your collaborative spaces.
