A Complete Layout and an Awesome Design
In 2020 Dansk Industri contacted NordicScreen and ProShop Europe because they needed a more effective way of managing their meeting facilities. Having a complete layout of the activities taking place in the individual meeting room is important, in order to have the many meetings and events run smoothly. At the same time, Dansk Industri needed a solution that suited the modern space of the building.
With a Q-Cal Meeting Room Display solution with ProDVX screens, Dansk Industri got a solution that ensures a complete layout of all activities in each meeting room, a solution that provides easy access to meeting facilities, and a solution that makes it easy to book meeting facilities. At the same time, the solution ensures an alignment with the facility’s modern brand.
“I can warmly recommend NordicScreen as a supplier. They are able to listen to the customer’s needs and through close collaboration with the customer, find the right solution.”
Helge O. U. Nielsson, IT-Project Manager, Dansk Industri
A Solution for Every Need
Every day a lot of people use the facilities of Dansk Industri. That resulted in challenges where both guests and employees had difficulties finding the right meeting room. And, if you had an ad hoc meeting it was near impossible to find a vacant meeting room.
With a ProDVX screen, with the Q-Cal meeting room software on, mounted outside each meeting room, Dansk Industri has created the perfect overview of their meeting facilities.
On the 10’’ ProDVX touchscreen outside each meeting room, guests and employees can easily see the name of the room, when the room is occupied, and they can start and end their meeting directly on the screen.
The LED edge around the screen also makes it possible to spot vacant rooms based on the edge being either red or green.
“Two years ago Dansk Industri chose NordicScreen for our Q-Cal Meeting Room Display Solution. From the beginning, there was a close collaboration between Dansk Industri and NordicScreen. This way we could adapt the system and create a solution perfect for our everyday life. The collaboration has been amazing, and the developers at NordicScreen have been good at listening to our needs.”

Everyone knows it. In a busy workday, changes are constantly happening. Meetings are changed or moved. That is why it is essential for Dansk Industri to integrate their Q-Cal Meeting Room Display solution with their Office 365 calendar.
With two-way integration, Dansk Industri ensures that their meeting room displays are automatically updated based on changes in their calendar.
The integration makes it impossible to double book a meeting room. Because the availability of the meeting room is always updated and visible in the company calendar.
Each meeting room display has an awesome start/stop feature that lets everyone know if the room is occupied. If the Start Meeting button, has not been pressed within the first 10 minutes of the meeting’s start time, the meeting room will automatically be displayed as available. Both in the company calendar and on the screen outside the meeting room.
The Employees asked for more
The first year Dansk Industri only had the Q-Cal Meeting Room Display in front of half their meeting rooms. But, the employees of Dansk Industri wanted to expand the solution. Due to the high demand from the employees, Dansk Industri decided to expand their solution to the rest of their meeting rooms.
The Q-Cal Meeting Room Display solution provides the employees with a much-needed overview of occupied and vacant meeting rooms. And, the calendar integration makes it easy for the employees to book rooms. While the automatic updates ensure the meeting room displays are always updated.
The actual ProDVX screen outside each meeting room makes it clear to the employees, which meeting room they are standing outside. And the shifting red/green LED edge on the screen makes it possible to see the availability of the room from afar.
Due to the demand of the employees, Dansk Industris Q-Cal Meeting Room Display solution now contains a screen in front of all their 90 meeting rooms. All are located at Industriens Hus in Copenhagen.
“The demand from our users was huge. This resulted in us expanding our solution, so we have a Q-Cal Meeting Room Display outside each of our 90 meeting rooms.”

A Solution that is Always On
Having invested in a hardware-software solution, only to find out, that the hardware is plagued by a lot of downtimes, is unacceptable. Fortunately, the ProDVX Panel PC used for the solution at Dansk Industri is Always On.
The meeting room display solution at Dansk Industri is so reliable because it consists of a hardware-software combination that’s built for each other. Dansk Industris’ solution is built with the use of APPC-10SLB screens. Which are a 10” Android-based Panel PC. The Panel PC has a high brightness level which makes it easy to use, even in areas with a lot of (day)light. And it increases the lifespan of the screen.
Each screen is surrounded by a LED Bar that clearly signals the availability of the individual meeting room. These, and other, unique hardware features in this Panel PC, combined with the Q-Cal Meeting Room Display software, have led to the ultimate solution. A solution that enhances the user experience and helps the customer save time.
This combination of NordicScreen software and ProDVX hardware means, that the meeting room displays at Dansk Industri are always online and require minimal maintenance. This was very important for Dansk Industri when choosing the right solution.
