    The healthcare industry certainly is top of mind for many of us these days, as it’s been one of the hardest hit industries during the pandemic. As of this writing, in the US alone there have been more than 3.6 million cases of the coronavirus, and that number still is growing. Some hospitals are quite overwhelmed, and other primary-care practices have reported service reductions of up to 70 percent—as patients have postponed care that’s not deemed urgent.

    Schools across the nation are experiencing a staggering impact from COVID-19 to the way they support learning and engagement. As of March 2020, a report from UNESCO1 reported that some 1.3 billion learners (or 80 percent) around the world weren’t able to attend school or university due to the pandemic. With the start date of schools quickly approaching and, in some areas, infection rates still rising, many schools and parents are trying to plan their next steps while understanding what all of this means for students.

    It was the simplest product requirement I have ever written. Just one sentence: “Bring Telepresence to the desktop and make it CEO-proof”. When we launched in March 2010 industry analyst Andrew Davies at Wainhouse Research wrote: “For most of my life I wanted a Porsche, now I think I want a Tandberg EX90 instead.” At a time where PC-based video was still pretty useless and the iPad was not even invented, it became very clear to us that we had totally nailed it.

    Thanks to recent events, working from home has become more of necessity than a privilege, and many say that it’s not likely we’ll ever make it back to the “business as usual” we had pre-pandemic. In fact, the entire channel has turned its head toward the remote workforce, enticing many experts to give it a nod as a hotbed of future growth. According to Matt Soseman, a Modern Workplace Architect from Microsoft, “I think #WorkFromHome is here to stay. The technology is here—let's take advantage of it.” And Scott Kinka, CTO and Founding Partner of EvolveIP, put it this way, “How do we position the business so the first strategy is the remote strategy?”

  • The Rise of Remote Education

    Among the many things COVID-19 has exposed about our society, the varying degrees of technological preparedness among schools ranks high. When stay at home issues were ordered, many schools were able to quickly adapt to remote learning, while others realized they lacked the resources and solutions needed to ensure student success outside of the classroom. What once seemed to be a non-urgent, multi-year lift for school districts to upgrade has now become a necessity for ensuring that students don’t fall behind. Fortunately, there is great opportunity for VARs and agents to work with school systems to help them enter a more digital world, whether that be a complete overhaul or a few minor upgrades.

    Anyone that’s been to the grocery store lately understands that this is not your mother’s grocery experience. Gone are the days of sipping coffee while walking up and down the aisles deciding what to make for dinner. The grocery store looks very different these days – from one-way aisles to pre-sanitized shopping carts to face masks and gloves.

  • School Safety 101: Designing security solutions for education that pass with flying colors

    Students can’t learn if they don’t feel safe, and attracting good faculty is only possible if schools can ensure a secure working environment. While extreme cases capture media headlines, schools and universities of all sizes around the world struggle to protect students and staff from bullying, fighting, assaults, accidents, weather emergencies, and more. They are also concerned with protecting school property from vandalism, arson, and theft—much of which occurs outside of regular school hours. From a liability perspective, schools and universities find themselves accountable to students, faculty and visitors to their campus.
