Logitech’s latest $699 USB-C docking station is designed to make desk sharing in an office even easier, thanks to new built-in desk booking software.
The Logi Dock Flex is an all-in-one USB-C docking station, built specifically to alleviate some of the stresses of hybrid work environments. The standout feature, something not typically available on standard docking stations, is the eight-inch display that sits above the base with all the ports.
On the front of the station are a pair of USB-C ports, and a single USB-A port which Logitech calls “USB 3.2” ports without specifying speed. There are two more USB-A ports on the back, just in case you need more, along with one more additional USB-C port.
A Kensington Lock slot is on the back of the Logi Dock Flex, paired with a gigabit Ethernet port. The new docking station also supports up to a pair of external 4K monitors, via the HDMI port and DisplayPort.
That eight-inch touchscreen supports different work tools necessary in a shared workspace, including Zoom Workspace and Microsoft’s Teams. It can also be used to do simple things, like show a calendar, away messages, or photographs.
Where the shared desk management comes in, is through Logitech’s new desk booking software. It works via Logitech Sync, and manages who is using which desk, and when, not just for workers but for management as well.
The Logi Dock Flex will be available in one color, off-white, and retail for $699 when it launches in the fall of 2023. Logitech’s desk booking software is free and available starting May 24. The Logi Dock Flex is the successor to Logitech’s Logi Dock, which launched in late 2021.
