A MEETING PLATFORM AS A SOLUTION FOR DISTANCE
In case you are wondering yes, this is yet another article about an online videoconferencing and meeting platform but believe me, it’s worth a read. When there is crisis, it’s good to know what is the good people doing out there and the history behind this solution it’s kind of interesting.
WHY LINKEDIP MEET
As employees of many organizations have been forced to transition to go from a desk in a branch office to a remote work because of the impact of COVID-19, new and effective communication tools are required to allow teams to keep engaged.
At LinkedIP we are conscious about our commitment not only to our customers but to the communities and the country. That is the reason a cost free video conferencing platform has been released to provide conferencing and collaboration for free to individuals, families and organizations.
But these days group communications are not only required by employees. One critical aspect that we at LinkedIP found it was the fact that our senior parents were getting very anxsious in their lockdowns. You may agree that senior citizens are not very handy with downloading apps or installing applications on their computers and the fact they were having troubles tyring to install 3rd party software without success was actually contributing to their frustation. This is where we thought we could contribute to the problem by enabling a platform that did not require nothing to download and install. In 100% of the cases of the senior citizens where we invited to try LinkedIP Meet we observed zero frustration and great acceptance of the tool. This motivated us to put this out there for free; the people was needing something like this desperately.
Almost over 60 days after the pandemia forced us to stay home, we have received testimonials on how LinkedIP Meet is being used widely as a team meeting tool in businesses but we also are happy to hear the tool is being used in schools, bible studies, praying groups and family meetings.
