Companies affected by conrona virus are using technology to ensure their business meetings & events can continue as usual, but with a precautionary twist.
Many events are being cancelled or postponed as companies take precautionary measures to protect their staff by recommending that they self-isolate in order to slow the spread of Covid-19.
Where vital meetings or events cannot be postponed, however, many are changing the way they work to embrace live-streaming technology. By doing so, clients and staff don’t have to miss out but can stay in touch from the comfort of their own homes.
Steve Plevin from Guernsey-based audio Visual firm Joys says they have seen an upsurge in enquiries from businesses who want to adopt live-streaming technology keep their staff and clients safe, without having to close for business.
Joys can work with a company’s existing audio-visual equipment and combine it with their own technology to provide a mobile TV studio. They can also help where bandwidth might be an issue and provide a secure, seamless service.
“We have been pleased to be able to supply the necessary technology and expertise that has allowed the Guernsey Institute of Directors mid-term event to continue to take place, albeit in a different way,” he said.
“We believe it sends a message to industry that it’s business as usual, which in these uncertain times is a real positive.”
