Hybrid Docking Solutions

Flexibility for the modern workspace

It’s all about connections.


Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies — where employees use their personal devices for work — are reported to save companies an average of $350 per employee annually1, and the BYOD market is expected to reach $367 billion by 20222.

With BYOD policies in shared and agile workspaces, as well as hoteling and hot desking, today’s work environments need to meet the demands of the people who use them. And their devices. They need to be able to connect — to monitors, printers, chargers, keyboards, and more — no matter what type of device they’re connecting.

Studies show hybrid docks are increasingly being sought over proprietary ones, due to the wide range of “standards” used in consumer devices. Kensington docking stations enable flexible work options for any standard, in any work environment, helping to save on BYOD policy operational costs.

Shared Workspaces

These environments provide office-like settings and amenities on a temporary basis to remote workers who need a physical office. Hybrid docking allows these workers to connect whatever devices they decide to use.


Hoteling removes permanently assigned seating from the office. Instead, employees reserve a workspace prior to coming into work. These workspaces need to offer full functionality to whomever reserves them, which makes hybrid docking the perfect solution.

Hot Desking

Similar to hoteling, employees are encouraged to sit in the available spaces, but there’s no reservation system. And like hoteling, these workspaces need to offer full functionality to whomever reserves them.

Agile Workspaces

Here, workspaces focus on bringing groups together to collaborate based on activities or business objectives instead of working form a fixed location for all tasks. Hybrid docking makes perfect sense for these environments, since each workspace needs to accommodate various people and their devices.
