Long-Term Value

In contrast to MEPT (mechanical, electrical, plumbing + technology) firms, or a design-build approach that leaves much technology design to integrators, TEECOM provides the value of a dedicated technology consultant. This means thought leadership backed by extensive experience, knowledge sharing, and in-house research and development. We work with clients to understand organizational objectives and identify the best technology to achieve them. We design and engineer systems with more creativity and fewer errors thanks to our prevalence of certified engineers. Through project management, we deliver fully functioning systems on schedule. Our approach saves clients millions of dollars in the long run.

Enterprise Support

We act as an extension of owners’ facilities IT operations. We scale with the organization to design and deliver technology systems, saving millions, providing a time-to-market advantage, and ensuring a consistent user experience across the enterprise.

  • Dedicated Team
  • Process Development
  • Global Technology Standards
  • Infrastructure Flexibility

Article: Occupancy Measurement Enables Digital Workplace Management

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought strong demand for occupancy measurement systems — an emerging technology that, prior to the pandemic, seemed limited by privacy concerns. Privacy is a legitimate concern and one that calls for careful governance. Furthermore, as the concern may relate more to the perception of these systems, it calls for transparent communication and the maintenance of trust in the organization. Many leading occupancy sensor vendors have now removed or enabled users to opt out of facial recognition capture mechanisms, preventing the collection of Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and, in the European Union, adhering to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Article: Technology Design Guidelines & Standards, A Playbook for Scaling

All organizations with expanding real estate footprints, whether corporations, academic institutions, or transportation facilities, face the challenge of delivering consistent technology implementations across diverse geographic areas, with different and constrained resource pools, and ever more compressed schedules. Development of technology design guidelines and standards will provide a playbook for consistent implementation. In this article, we’ll explain three challenges that often arise in the absence of guidelines, followed by three advantages organizations see from having them in place. Keep reading

Article: Indoor LED Walls in the Workplace of the Future

Prior to the pandemic, indoor LED walls were becoming increasingly common in corporate lobbies, boardrooms, and executive briefing and customer experience centers. The increase in pixel density has enabled a clearer, brighter picture that creates an immersive viewing experience for many applications. As an expensive feature of the physical office, LED walls may now seem like a questionable investment, but one can also argue that the evolution of the workplace environment will actually increase their demand, continuing the existing trend.

Article: How Will 5G Impact Indoor Wireless Systems?

The wireless world loves its acronyms: 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Private LTE (CBRS) — the list goes on. Building owners and developers are increasingly confused about what it all means, particularly with regard to 5G. From the marketing claims that 5G will revolutionize the world, to the conspiracy theories that it’s harmful to people, there is a lot of uncertainty out there. Here we provide brief answers to some of the most frequently asked questions around how 5G will impact indoor wireless systems. Keep reading

Article: Lobby Security, Making a Welcoming Experience

We’ve all experienced the scenario of entering the lobby of a commercial office building and finding ourselves bouncing around between security stations that feel designed to ensure you arrive at your destination 20 minutes late and exasperated. Technology can seem like the necessary evil, but if designed and coordinated properly, it can help enhance the user experience when entering a commercial building. Keep reading
