Whiteboards vs Workwalls – what style works best for you?

Choosing between a whiteboard or a workwall is a really simple matter when you understand the differences between them… or is it?

Is your whiteboard considered furniture or is it a tool to support different outcomes?

Most would recognise that your whiteboard is to catch agendas, to do lists and communicate thought. You can write, draw and some configurations project on to it. Most people would make the decision based on price, look and what is familiar not understanding the benefits of one over the other. And most people don’t know the different surfaces a whiteboard surface comes in and what that difference makes to price, product life, user experience and appearance.

We want to help by providing some guidance and hope this page is helpful.

When considering your next purchase ask yourself what is most important and how will your investment return. You probably do this with everything but sometimes we just don’t think, we just do. If you can’t answer how your purchase helps the organisation and users you just buy something that is familiar, easy and relatively cheap.

In the event you want to think a little more about the purchase have a read of this blog post or contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
