Lengo Introduction: What is It and How Does It Work?  


Thursday, May 18, 2017

At Lencore, we have a long-standing reputation for helping businesses boost their employee productivity and privacy. In fact, we've been specializing in this for more than 25 years—and our innovative sound masking systems have transformed numerous workspaces. In keeping with our commitment to growth and development, we're now proud to offer the next generation of individual productivity technology with Lengo . This incredible technology utilizes specially designed and composed music to increase concentration and reduce distraction.

Lengo: The Specifics

Swahili for "focus," Lengo systems offer 50 channels of different types of proprietary music to help workers avoid both distractions and habituation—detrimental workplace habits that lead employees astray from their tasks and result in the time-wasting actions, such as checking social media or staring off into space. Thanks to years of research and experimentation on the effects of certain tempo music on the body's neural circuitry, Lengo is able to help employees reach peak productivity. In fact, studies have shown an increase in anywhere from 200%-400% in focus time in workers who have utilized this technology compared to those who do not. For your company, this could equate to anywhere from 20-120 minutes of dedicated focus and productivity at a time for each of your employees. Think about what this could mean for your company!

The technology behind Lengo is patented, so we can't give away all the secrets; however, this system is fully customizable, allowing each user to adjust the tempo of their music as needed and switch between all 50 channels as desired. An important component of this music that keeps workers focused is not only the tempo, but the fact that the music is designed to contain zero human frequencies. As a result, employees are less likely to become distracted as they may while listening to music with human voices (or sounds resembling human voices). Furthermore, each station switches up music and tempo about once every 15 minutes to prevent boredom while maintaining focus.

Lengo & The Modern Workspace

So, what makes Lengo a great fit for the modern workplace? Consider, for a moment, the fact that more and more businesses are moving away from individualized and compartmentalized workspaces (i.e.: cubicles and separated offices). Instead, the Millennial generation, which now makes up more than 30% of the total workforce, insists on open and collaborative workspaces. This is all great, aside from the fact that these open workspaces also tend to be filled with potential distractions and productivity killers: conversations among workers, phone calls, and miscellaneous desk noise—just to name a few examples.

By incorporating Lengo into these workspaces, employees are able to enjoy the increased individual productivity and elimination of distractions while enjoying all the benefits of open and collaborative workspaces. And when combined with other technology, such as Lencore sound masking, employers have the power to combine this productivity/focus boost with the benefits of increased sound privacy and workplace safety—a win/win/win for all involved.

Lencore is excited to offer Lengo, and we anticipate that this technology will become an important staple of the modern workplace (alongside sound masking technology). To find out more about Lengo and the other great services offered by Lencore to optimize your workspace, contact our team today!
