World’s first intelligent service solving noise and distraction problems in the open workplace uses nature-inspired audio and visual elements, and adaptive software

Tampa, Fla., – July 26, 2017 – AVI-SPL, the global leader in AV systems integration and collaboration solutions, today announced its partnership with Plantronics to offer Habitat Soundscaping.

An intelligent acoustic management service, Habitat Soundscaping helps transform loud, dysfunctional, open office spaces into peaceful environments where people can focus, collaborate and thrive. The service uses nature-inspired audio and visuals, coupled with intelligent software to mitigate noise and distraction – two of the most common complaints employees have about their open workspaces. Habitat Soundscaping brings these natural elements into the workplace to create a place where people want to come to work and leaves them feeling energized.

“Businesses are eager to resolve the noise issues they’re experiencing with open office layouts,” said AVI-SPL’s Senior Vice President of Sales Dale Bottcher, when the news was announced by Plantronics. “By partnering with Plantronics, we’re able to provide customers a game-changing option to help make their open office environments the best they can be using the Habitat Soundscaping service.”

Biophilic Science, or the hypothesis that suggest humans have an affinity to nature, is an essential element of the Habitat Soundscaping service. Research indicates nature-inspired environments can help improve mood, working memory, and cognitive behavior. In fact, workplaces using natural elements have been proven by these studies to reduce worker absenteeism by 10 percent, creating the opportunity for significant productivity gains and a much happier workforce.
