Did you know that decluttering not only makes people happier, but it also makes them more productive? This extends to both the office and the home. In fact, the best way to begin decluttering in your workspace is to go truly wire free. If this seems like something out of a science fiction movie, rest assured, it isn’t. If you need motivation to “cut the cord” so to speak, all you have to do is think about the myriad of times you have lost, forgotten, broken, or simply brought the wrong charging cord with you to work.
A recent report by Garnter noted that the number of iOT devices is growing by 18% per annum or more. That equates to a whopping 14.4 billion this year alone. For many of us, that means more cords, more responsibility, and more stress. In the enterprise, it translates to higher costs of ownership, more “cord closets”, additional IT support, more employee downtime, productivity loss, and a messier workspace. While to some this picture may seem bleak, especially for enterprise management, it doesn’t have to be.
Enter DeepCharge. DeepCharge is a Boston-based company founded by two co-founders who know the world isn’t limited by devices or by the cords to charge them. And when the solutions they envisioned weren’t available, they created them. DeepCharge has won numerous awards, participated in accelerator programs, and launched a product like none else. The company offers an intelligent charging solution that decimates the competition.
Yousof Nader is the CEO and Co-Founder of DeepCharge. He believes, “the DeepCharge story is about the courage to change and simplify our lives. DeepCharge products enable a world where ordinary surfaces transform into charging surfaces.” The DeepCharge team specifically designed
those charging spaces without limitations or exceptions. The company has gone the extra mile to ensure enterprises are able to charge more efficiently while reducing their carbon footprint throughout.
Naderi, a Professor at Northeastern University and his Co-Founder, Kaushik Chowdhury, also a Professor at Northeastern University, spent years working together researching the methodology behind the creation of their patented wireless charging. Their main goal was to make it truly wireless – therefore negating the need for charging cords for every device.
DeepCharge’s technology was designed to fill the gaps left by the device makers. By creating a charging protocol that enables multi-device charging through a surface, enterprises can utilize this technology on workstations, desks, conference tables, and more. The company has created the world’s first networked charging tiles which do not require coil alignment or
technology-specific charging. In other words, it doesn’t matter whether your device is an Apple device, a Samsung device or any other brand. In essence, it can all be charged concurrently on the same surface. The result for the enterprise: a reduction in bottom-line costs and an increase in employee productivity and creativity.
DeepCharge Energy Tiles are the “secret sauce” in the DeepCharge technology. They turn any surface into an individual, fully wireless, device agnostic charging station. The DeepCharge tiles are also the only fully programmable, AI-enabled, and reconfigurable system on the market today. In essence, DeepCharge created the first intelligent surface charging in the world.
Intelligent surfaces, while falling under the Smart Cities category, offer enterprises significant tools to reduce their computer architecture purchases. In fact, with a system like DeepCharge, when device makers change their charging protocols, a simple update may be all that is required. With employees using more devices than ever before and a much more crowded workspace, it’s essential that we keep employees plugged in while they are literally unplugged.
“Enterprise end-users need a 10x more convenient wireless charging solution and that’s exactly what we’ve built,” believes Naderi. “The best way to innovate is to radically simplify.” Sometimes the simplest way to function is the most efficient way to be productive. In other words, by having the tools you need available in the enterprise all the time, enterprises and employees can check all their boxes by being more efficient, reducing costs, and helping the environment – all at the same time.
