Innovation in private investment

UK based private investment Hargreaves Lansdown has provided high quality services to its clients for over 35 years. Opened early in 2018, HL Tech is an innovative new technology centre based in Warsaw’s award-winning Spire building. Cutting-edge IT development capabilities at the centre boost Hargreaves Lansdown’s ability to improve services to its international clients and grow as a business.

TEOS Manage powers smarter communications

HL Tech offers a uniquely innovative working environment where teams can develop secure, state-of-the-art software solutions to facilitate the company’s financial operations. Control of display devices, digital signage and meeting room booking is orchestrated by TEOS Manage, Sony’s complete workplace management solution.

Running on a central server, TEOS Manage controls networked display devices around the building including 27 BRAVIA Professional Displays and a Sony VPL-PHZ10 laser projector. Devices can be remotely scheduled to switch on or off automatically, helping HL Tech save on energy costs when displays are not in use. Other functions such as adjusting audio volume levels can also be managed centrally.

The right content, on the right screen, at the right time

TEOS Manage also oversees the distribution of digital content to screens at scheduled times. This digital signage solution at HL Tech is provided by two 49” BRAVIA Professional Displays located in reception areas, plus a further twelve 55″ screens in corridors. The bar area is brought to life with colourful, regularly updated signage on two 49” and three 55″ BRAVIA displays.

TEOS Book takes care of centralised bookings for conference rooms, avoiding double bookings and making better use of meeting room resources. Integrated with Microsoft Exchange and running on seven Android tablets, the solution allows staff to make room reservations via an intuitive touchscreen interface outside each room. Coloured illuminators offer instant confirmation of each meeting room’s status, and meeting agendas can be shown on the customisable display.

Intuitive control and management

TEOS Manage offers intuitive control and management of networked devices and content from a single dashboard-style web interface. Accessed securely from anywhere on the network, TEOS Manage is freely scalable, allowing the easy addition of further devices as needed.

“We specialise in implementing ambitious projects,” says Michał Gaj, Implementation Director, AV SMART Sp. z o.o. “At HL Tech, we had to combine numerous areas when deploying TEOS Manage: room booking system, device management and content display management in combination with professional displays. Integrating the TEOS platform with HL Tech’s IT systems and bringing it in line with high security standards involved many hours of liaison with IT teams on a local and global level. All of this required not only knowledge and experience, but also trust. We could count on Sony’s full support.”
