Free Remote-Collaboration Software to Manage Covid-19 Impact

May 11, 2020
Remote collaboration and communication technology runs on smartphones, tablets, smart glasses, wearables, and computers – to address business continuity and worker safety challenges.

LIBRESTREAM, a provider of remote collaboration and communication technology, announced a free program for enterprises facing business-continuity and worker-safety difficulties related to Covid-19. Librestream’s Onsight® platform is deployed by hundreds of businesses — aviation, defense, manufacturing, energy and inspection — around the world, promoting greater operational efficiency, reductions in carbon footprint, and improved worker safety.

"The sudden onset of this pandemic means managers haven’t had time to prepare for the new reality we are facing with the novel coronavirus,” said John Bishop, president and CEO. “Many are scrambling to find safe, cost-effective ways to ensure business continuity. Onsight is already helping hundreds of companies overcome distance barriers and keep workers safe. With this free program, we can extend the same opportunity to any organization.”

The Onsight platform's worker-centric focus includes the ability to collaborate securely across and within field environments, including those where bandwidth and network connectivity is most challenged - such as a basement over cellular or an offshore oil rig over satellite.

Use cases range from remote inspections of critical equipment and diagnostic assessments to telemedicine consults. Many organizations have announced travel/visitation bans to protect workers, making it impossible to work the traditional way:   organizations are using Librestream’s Onsight platform to work remotely while still maintaining the benefits of an in-person meeting including content markup, sharing visual and audio assets, and more.

Onsight Connect remote expert software runs on smartphones, tablets, smart glasses, wearables, and computers for a consistent, flexible and secure experience in the field.

The Onsight Connect remote-expert features include:
· Talk, stream video, share high-quality snapshots and content snips;
· Add text and telestrate on screen;
· Control the field camera remotely, adjust zoom or lighting and take pictures;
· Operate in limited bandwidth environments, using less than 64 kbps;
· Invite guests to bring in contractors, suppliers, and customers for collaboration;
· Record Onsight sessions for future record keeping, audit, training and AI enablement;
· Enterprise-grade security with end-to-end encryption and authentication

Librestream will provide the Onsight Connect remote-expert package to qualified organizations who are new to this capability. The package includes pre-configured Onsight Connect remote expert software and materials to get up and running within 24 hours.

To initiate the qualification, organizations must apply online and agree to provide feedback. There is no commitment to purchase of any kind.

Librestream also is offering no-charge, virtual training sessions: Interested customers should inquire with their Librestream contact.

Information on how Onsight is used is detailed in customer use cases.
