HOUSTON TX – When the owners of MCA Communications Inc (MCA) and Office Furniture Innovations (OFI) first met, it didn’t take long for them to see the value in a possible partnership.
What first started as a business growth opportunity to share leads turned into a 12,000 square feet of shared demo space on the 4th floor of a commercial office space. Their combined efforts and desire to provide a “design lab” for clients has turned a renovation of Class C building space into a Class A showcase.
The only space of its kind in the Houston area, the design lab is intended for clients to experience office furniture and collaboration technology as one solution in one location which displays a true collaborative environment. “This isn’t your typical showroom. Our clients such as designers and architects have the opportunity to walk around the showroom, explore the furniture design and functionality, experience the technology and imagine the space in their own building or office location before making a final purchasing decision” said Jayne Edison, CEO and Founder of OFI.
Through partnerships with leading technology manufactures, MCA designed and integrated the entire communication technology system for the space, starting with the network cabling system. With a “centralized” system design approach, all of the technology in the space is connected through a CAT6 infrastructure that routes back to one single IT Closet location. “Utilizing one cabling infrastructure system to support multiple technologies is what we believe to be the standard of the future. Today, all of the technology in a building is being designed to work on the network and it only makes sense to have a network cabling foundation that is future proof. When using this concept, your infrastructure becomes a lot more flexible. “said Ricky Cortez , President of MCA.
The new showroom also highlight the newest collaboration technology solutions such as Video Collaboration, Interactive Displays, Digital Signage, Unified Communications, IP Cameras, and Distributed Antenna Systems.
“The office of the future is all about collaboration and having information readily available. It’s exciting to see how collaboration technology is changing the way we work and learn. Our new showroom gives our clients a glimpse into the workplace of the future as well as showing the wide range of solutions MCA is now offering” said Tina Lang, Collaboration Technology Sales Consultant.
