Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

Joan, described as the world’s smartest and most sustainable meeting room booking device, will be at #CES2022 and will present its latest device, Joan 6 Pro at E Ink’s private meeting space.

We are told that Joan 6 Pro was designed in response to the pandemic and to react to the ongoing challenges that the workplace is facing in its shift towards more flexible office dynamics. Based on first hand feedback from customers, Joan 6 Pro device is an efficiency enabler, enterprise grade solution for businesses.

It’s capable of handling more than 100 meeting rooms and conference spaces, Joan 6 Pro is the perfect solution for enterprise that allows employees to know beforehand where meetings will be held and to check a meeting room’s timetable directly on the device, virtually eliminating double bookings or cancelled meetings that tie up room space because someone forgot to unbook.

Matej Zalar, Co-Founder told us “Our goal with Joan 6 Pro was to create the perfect solution for the workplace of the future. The office is changing rapidly and its core function is being reshaped, so we need to be ahead of the curve. Our device integrates seamlessly in big office spaces and its software solutions follow the most recent workplace dynamics. People are slowly going back to the office and now more than ever companies will need tools that help them keep this safe and efficient. That is why we created Joan 6 Pro.

The device has a 6″ interactive, touch and E Ink electronic paper screen. It adheres to the highest levels of security (TLS 1.3 encryption) and integrates seamlessly with Google workspace, Office 365, Microsoft Exchange, Accruent EMS and iCalendar.

The extra features included in the Pro device offer both new hardware and software enhancements over the standard Joan devices. To offer more flexibility Joan 6 Pro can be configured with either Power over Ethernet (PoE) or via Smart Magnet. PoE guarantees strict security protocols and ensures constant power to the device while eliminating the eventuality for the device to wander off. It also allows for dual LEDs (green and red) to communicate room occupancy at all times. Instead, for a more dynamic use, Joan 6 Pro can also be outfitted with its own Smart Magnet which acts both as a support and as a location tag thanks to the device’s 2.4 or 5 ghz Wi-Fi connectivity. The system is designed so that as soon as a Joan 6 Pro device is attached to the magnet, it automatically reconfigures to display the room’s dedicated information. This allows devices to be interchanged without any loss of information or synchronization to the room’s schedule.

Joan is product of Visionect, Joan is a centrally-managed workplace management system that designs devices and solutions for smooth scheduling and management of the hybrid workspace. Joan proprietary e-paper displays are used by many leading companies across the globe such as Microsoft, NASA, Samsung and Amazon.
