Placing POD rooms
POD rooms increase both the working comfort and productivity by providing cozy room-like acoustic and visual shelters. They are meant to be used, yet this happens only if they are placed smartly. We gathered a small and simple guide of what to consider when placing POD rooms.
Place the POD rooms close to users
The most important thing in placing POD rooms is to place them close to the users so that they can be easily accessed. If your employees must walk all the way to the other floor just to be able to concentrate alone or collaborate with co-workers, it will decrease the usage of your POD rooms. At their very best the POD rooms are when placed to the passage areas and used as space dividers. INTO POD rooms have smart and clean lined design, so that the POD rooms can be placed next to each other without leaving gaps for dust and dirt to gather. Clean, straight corners and minimalist look makes these POD rooms timeless and highly adaptable.
Place your phone booths to the central areas
Especially important with phone booths is to place them into central areas so that they can be entered quickly. When the call comes, phone booth must be accessible in reasonable time.
Provide right amount of POD rooms
Provide your team enough POD rooms. One phone booth for forty people is a great bandage, but it is simply not enough. You should roughly have one phone booth per ten to twenty people, and other POD rooms depending on your employee profiles: do they travel much, do they have to concentrate throughout the day and be exact and accurate, do they make a lot of calls or is their work mainly teamwork.

Diverse sizes for different needs
Before purchasing a POD, you should consider its purpose and who will be using it. Choose the appropriate size POD room according to the purpose. POD PHONE telephone booths are ideal for quick calls. POD 1 & POD 2 are compact solutions for spontaneous meetings and independent work. PODs 2-4 are optimal for collaboration and team work, and POD 4 is a perfect meeting room.
