International CES 2016 is a go! The Henge Docks team is all together in Las Vegas and excited to be exhibiting at CES for the fifth consecutive year. Our California Redwood inspired booth is on the trade show floor for its sixth time, and is filled with the entire Henge Docks product lineup. This year, we are showcasing the Horizontal Dock - the booth has eight on display! Our product developers created a centerpiece display for the Horizontal Dock that is quite the attention getter.
We’ve already talked to many people, and are having fun meeting people - both those that are already Henge Docks fans and those that will be soon! A highlight has been meeting the original patenter of PC docking stations. Very cool! Our CEO and industrial designers were certainly happy to speak with him and nerd out on docking stations.
If you’ll be attending CES, be sure to stop by to interact with all of our products and visit with the Henge Docks team. We’re in the Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall, iLounge Booth 5135. We look forward to seeing you!
Happy New Year from Henge Docks! This year, the team resolves to become more organized, with the first step being to declutter our desks. We think that with a few helpful tricks and some intuitive products, this is one resolution we’ll keep!
According to a workspace organization survey, 45% of people have a goal to organize their desk, but just never get around to it. It’s not just peace of mind that a messy desk inhibits, but also productivity - 77% of respondents stated that unorganized clutter affects their ability to get things done efficiently. Now that it’s a new year, it’s time for a new desk - a cleaner one that will up productivity while simultaneously boosting motivation and happiness.
Purge the Piles
Even in our digital age, it happens to all of us - paper just piles up! The first step to cleaning up a desk is going through the piles and recycling or shredding what’s unnecessary. If there’s still quite a few papers left, categorize them and invest in either a sturdy file cabinet or a desktop paper organizer - and remember to file new documents accordingly to avoid a new pileup!
Clear the Clutter
A desk wouldn’t be complete without a computer - and a computer wouldn’t be complete without its corresponding cables. We know the struggle of tangled cables all too well, so well that it’s the reason Henge Docks came into being. This year, we’re excited to see the Horizontal Dock become a key to people organizing their workspaces. The Horizontal Dock takes all of those important cables and routes them into one place. With its simple docking and undocking at the touch of a button, there’s no need to constantly plug and unplug cables to connect your laptop to your monitors. Plus, all peripherals are now running through one device, instead of going every which way!
Now that there’s a place for all those papers and cables and our desks are clean, we’ll want to keep them that way. At Henge Docks, the team keeps a regular cleaning schedule to keep the office looking its best. Committing to keeping a workspace clutter-free will ensure that it stays organized all year round.
Join us in resolving to clean up your desk this year! Do you have tips that help you stay organized? Are there any New Year’s resolutions you’re setting for yourself? Let us know in the comments!

What a busy few months it has been here at Henge Docks! From the Horizontal Dock receiving certification in August, to exhibiting at IFA Berlin 2015 in September and now the shipping of the Horizontal Dock in October, there hasn’t been a dull moment at the Henge Docks office in quite a while!
Our Early Adopters began receiving their Horizontal Docks earlier this month, and we’ve been receiving a lot of great feedback about the dock. We are thrilled that the Horizontal Dock is finally getting into the hands of our customers, and hearing about their experiences with this new product!
The first batch of General Order Horizontal Docks arrived at our fulfillment center Tuesday, so we’ve been hard at work to ensure that the shipping process goes smoothly. The docks are currently being inbounded to inventory, and once this is complete they will be packaged and shipped to customers! The team will be working diligently to track shipments in the coming weeks, as every week we will be receiving new inventory from our factory. We anticipate that all current Horizontal Dock orders will be fulfilled by mid-December.
Docks packaged and ready to be shipped to customers
It’s a very inspiring time for the entire Henge Docks team. We are ecstatic that the Horizontal Dock is out in the wild. We know many people, including ourselves, have been waiting for this product to be released, so it’s both exhilarating and relieving to finally be shipping the Horizontal Dock!
To add to the excitement, we are also currently hiring for several positions to expand our team. If you’re seeking a fast-paced, innovative environment in which to thrive, check out our Careers page for more information on joining our expanding San Francisco-based team.
The Henge Docks team is humbled by all of the enthusiasm and support from our customers over the past several months. We are very proud to have such dedicated fans, and look forward to creating more products that allow us to further engage with our customers every day!
Wir hatten viel Spaß in Deutschland! IFA was quite the show, and the Henge Docks team is proud to have been a part of it. Being able to showcase the Horizontal Dock to our European customers, and to discuss the company, our products and our new EU website directly with them was a great experience. The above video gives a glimpse into our time at the show, and we're happy to share it with you!
Over the six days of the show, in addition to meeting a lot of loyal customers, we got the chance to introduce many people to Henge Docks. We gained valuable insights about our European customers including how to make our EU website better and some great ideas for what people would like to see from Henge Docks in the future. Thank you to everyone who came to visit us at IFA this year!
We're at Day 4 of IFA Berlin 2015 and on a roll! The weekend was especially busy, as the show is open to the public. It has been great to talk directly with our customers, and to see them interact with our docks! The Horizontal Dock has of course been the major draw, with loyal Henge Docks users excited to get to use the dock in the booth. We've also met many people who are being introduced to the company for the first time here at IFA, and are very interested in our products.
The Horizontal Dock
With the show only half over, the team is looking forward to speaking with a lot more people and really expanding our visibility here in Europe. If you're visiting the show, stop by our booth in the iZone, Hall 15.1, Booth 156!
