Orgatec 2018 confirms growing status of Dataflex as sector pioneers
Orgatec 2018, the leading international bi-annual workplace trade fair held 23-27 October in Cologne, confirmed Dataflex’s growing status as leaders in ergonomic design and sustainability. This was reflected in the 66% rise on 2016 in visitors to the Dataflex stand, and the huge interest in our products and our philosophy. Coming from industry insiders that’s a real compliment and, as always, we’ll be feeding all the invaluable insights received back into our product development processes.
Time ripe for LCA and Dataflex Return program
Sustainability is a hot issue for most companies and there was a lot of buzz around our Life Cycle Assessment and the Dataflex Return program, whereby a customer promises to return a product they no longer need and Dataflex then ensures it’s properly recycled.
Dataflex develops its products to optimize this process. Products like Bento, an ergonomic 4-in-1 document holder, toolbox and tablet & monitor riser solution that’s a customer favourite. It’s made from recyclable materials and designed for easy disassembly, so it’s ready for reuse in a circular economy. We’re now researching which materials usable for Bento would have the least environmental impact. One option, enthusiastically received at Orgatec, was sustainably-grown bamboo.
Meanwhile, all the signs from initial discussions with clients on the Return program suggest it is something our customers want and that the time is ripe for Dataflex to launch this initiative.
Link driving smarter working practices
Another product that got great reactions at Orgatec was the USB-C docking station, Link. Link was developed as the ideal connectivity solution for today’s mobile working world, supporting everything from companies’ flexible working initiatives to their clean desk policies. But why not see for yourself what people were getting so excited about.
Building on a successful week
Orgatec reconfirmed how the industry and customers value our products, trust our brand and share our design philosophy. It gave us fresh inspiration as we keep innovating and enhancing our offering.
