Why docking stations are becoming a necessity in the workplace.


Docking stations are rapidly becoming more prominent in the workplace due to their ability to enhance the productivity of laptops and tablets. As most device manufacturers have come to favour a minimalist design in an effort to increase mobility, the number of ports is diminishing on laptops and portable devices. Docking stations counteract the reduced capabilities of these devices by creating solutions which transform a tablet or laptop into a fully functional workstation.

Depending on the end user’s individual needs, docking stations are designed to provide an effortless transition between home, office, or on-the-go. Docking stations can increase productivity in the office by facilitating the connection of multiple peripherals, data syncing, audio and video support, screen extension or mirroring, ethernet transfer and even charging with power delivery.

Fixed docking stations are ideal for those who work in an office as it has a full array of ports and capabilities. Some fixed docks offer the latest Thunderbolt 3 technology, which can support up to three monitors, outputting a maximum resolution of up to 4K.

Docking stations are highly beneficial as they act as a solution for mixed devices and enterprise environments that operate hot desking and other flexible office organisational systems. Offering universal compatibility, employees can work anywhere in the office, regardless of their device’s hardware or brand without inadvertently creating cable entanglement.

On the other hand, portable docking stations cater to those who are constantly travelling or working away from the office. Providing the convenience of connectivity regardless of the location, portable docking stations are designed to be compact with a small footprint, easily fitting into any laptop bag or backpack.

The added utility which docking stations provides make them an invaluable asset to any users or organisation. ALOGIC aims to restore the functionality of your workspace by providing an array of docking stations specially designed to meet your individual needs.
