Eliminate the headaches of finding the perfect Console System for your needs.

As technology continues to evolve and become more advanced, organizations find that achieving a balanced integration of people, technology, workspace and workflow becomes increasingly more difficult to manage.  Understanding the complexities of these four elements is vital in the selection of a console system design. This is certainly true when it comes to establishing the necessary framework for finalizing a decision in a mission-critical environment, especially one that secures an initial lower total cost of ownership and higher return-on-investment over the long term.

5 Critical Considerations in selecting Console Furniture for your Operation Center.


  • Technology Integration: 


Efficient technology integration is paramount in console selection.  This means it should provide for the secure storage of technology while offering an ease of access to the extensive wire cable management associated with command consoles. This will enable both the user and IT staff to work simultaneously without disruption to operations while maintaining operational uptime.  Essentially, the right console will effectively minimize downtime and allow easy, yet secure access for the technology it supports.


  • Compatibility/Scalability: 


Make your selections from among console systems that provide for numerous configuration options that not only meet your current requirements but also allow for future scalability. This means adopting a future-proof design philosophy within your selection criteria. Essentially, choose console furniture systems with attention to cross-compatibility and those that can be reconfigured or scaled to meet future demands.


  • Durability: 


Select a console that is designed and constructed to withstand the rigors of a 24/7 multi-shift environment. A durable, well- made console that is intended to house and secure expensive technology equipment along with a massive amount of cabling will save the aggravation of needing to replace or make repairs to inferior console products.


  • Customization: 


Since a comfortable work environment contributes to individual productivity, the console should be suited to the operator and the work being performed. Console systems that offer a wide range of functional items such as data-ports, phone trays or binder holders, allow for the customization of individual stations or entire workspaces. This might also include security features for servicing technology and access to cabling infrastructure.


  • Ergonomics: 


Current research suggests that changing work postures a minimum of every 45 minutes is directly correlated to better health and higher productivity. However, in mission critical operations, breaks aren’t always possible. Incorporating height adjustable workstations helps increase blood flow to muscles, reduce fatigue and mitigate repetitive stress injuries.  In short, ergonomics plays a vital role within a console work environment.




Finding the right console for your needs can be daunting.  That’s why working with professionals to assist you in identifying and evaluating your company’s unique workspace, workflow, personnel challenges and technology is so vital to creating the best console design for your organization.
